Celebrated experimental film artist Guy Sherwin presents an exhibition of rarely seen and new works including Staircase (2011) filmed at Siobhan Davies Studios. Sherwin has occupied a central position within experimental film culture since the mid 1970s. His works are best characterised by their use of movement and light, both within the films and in the processes he sets up in making them. To accompany the exhibition, Guy Sherwin presents a special programme of installations of his work and events around his practice on 7-9 Oct, featuring the installation Tree Reflection #2 (2004) which runs throughout the weekend, and the seminal Man with Mirror (1976/2006) performed by Sherwin on Fri 7 Oct. The artist will also be joined in a panel talk by Joy Sleeman (Head of Art History, Slade, UCL) and Steven Ball (artist and film researcher), to discuss ideas of ‘environment' in response to Sherwin's performances, from the working environment of the projectors, to the depicted environments of the landscapes within the work.
