> DESCRIPTION

A collection of new moving image work exploring political, cultural, historical, and mythological themes through surreal, dream-like imagery from artists in the US, Canada and Europe.

Jonathan Monaghan (US), Rainbow Narcosis. A 3D animation following a headless lamb through a series of otherworldly environments. Marko Schiefelbein (Germany), I can. You can. A woman speaks directly to camera, a tangled declaration of ideals – all phrases scraped from advertisements. Ellen Wetmore (US), Collective Invention.What would that grand Rene Magritte inverted mermaid painting look like as a performance with a real woman on a real beach and one real, dead smelly fish? Jean-Guillaume Bastien (Canada), Déjà-vu. A collection of dream-like images; five women share a sense of déjà-vu. Marcantonio Lunardi (Italy), Default. A man sits at a desk with a phone in an abandoned factory, on hold. Francesca Lolli (Italy), Abaddon. Explores themes of race, gender, nationality, and sexuality against the backdrop of the Irish Trouble in a disorienting ensemble performance. David Jacques (UK), The Irlam House Bequest. In the style of a developing documentary, a series of drawings describes a fictitious collective: an anonymous politico-cultural entity.
