> DESCRIPTION

Referencing British Modernism’s preoccupation with the power of landscape and ancient mysticism, Jessica Warboys’ film Pageant Roll (2012) collages forms such as circles and squares and monochrome paintings with shots of Cornish standing stones and brightly-painted eggs.

Through film, painting and performance, Warboys weaves together tangible physical places and objects with abstract gesture and metaphor that allude to psychological spaces. In Pageant Roll, this is heightened by an intermittent and unearthly soundtrack as the film loop plays forwards and backwards.

 

Artists’ Film International showcases artists working with film, video and animation, selected by 14 partner organisations around the world: Ballroom Marfa, US; Belgrade Cultural Centre, Serbia; Center for Contemporary Arts Afghanistan, Afghanistan; Cinemathèque de Tanger, Morocco; City Gallery Wellington, New Zealand; Fundacion PRÒA, Argentina; Galleria D’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Italy; Istanbul Modern, Turkey; KINOKINO Centre for Art and Film, Norway; New Media Centre, Israel; Para/Site Art Space, Hong Kong; Project 88, India; San Art, Vietnam and Video-Forum of Neuer Berliner Kunstverein Germany. Jessica Warboys is selected by the Whitechapel Gallery.
