Frame by frame. The interruption of a measurable medium suggests an evolving dialogue that edits the established trajectory: image capture. The video format has readily adapted within the sphere of the internet. In turn, painting can shape to surrounding open source availability, images and media. Thus possibilities in painting elaborate through associations with other mediums. Video practice enters a similar status by recording real time form (linear narrative, reportage, edit), arriving at a manipulation which traverses experience.
SCREENING is a consideration towards the subtleties of display in materiality with video works by Oliver Michaels, Paul Pfeiffer, Tom Smith and Ryan Trecartin and the paintings of Stewart Cliff, Armen Eloyan, Robin Footitt, Sachin Kaeley, Albert Oehlen, Daniel Sinsel, George Young and Toby Ziegler.
The function of selection is a dilemma for all visual artists. Conditions for the encounter of painted and projected surfaces present conducted media with an appearance of finality. For this exhibition, the artists enter into a discussion with their own progression; disengaged with a final rhetoric, reclassifying the trajectories authored by painting and video.
SCREENING is an artist-led initiative that brings together established international and exciting emerging British artists. The project, which was initiated by Robin Footitt and Sachin Kaeley, will be presented as a temporary and preliminary structure built inside a 5000+ sq. ft, two-storey office block in Knightsbridge, London, opening during Frieze Art Fair week. A series of talks and events will accompany the four-week run, see the website for regular updates.
