The programme for the Strangelove Festival brings together four UK artists; Suky Best, Jamie Jenkinson, Alex Jukes and Jennifer Nightingale in an installation of film, video and moving sculptural works.
In each of these works there is an enquiry of the material nature of moving image.
Jamie Jenkinsons’ Fan on Fan (2017) uses an ordinary desk fan to question perception and the mechanics of digital video, motion and colour offering a new form for consideration. Suky Bests’ Alwyn Park House (2011) is an animated looped film installation depicting a constructed stately house where birds seem at home in a domestic scene devoid of humans. A single frame of film is advanced by the act of knitting in Jennifer Nightingales’ Knitting a Frame. A work where knitter, machine and structure mesh. Alex Jukes Primitive 1“sets out to explore the material nature of CGI” using basic geometric shapes as seen in the early pioneers of experimental film.
Jamie Jenkinson will be giving an artists talk on Saturday 18th March starting at 2.30pm. FREE entry but booking advised:
