21st Century: Joseph Walsh
21st Century is a research-based programme of regular events by emerging artists in our studio space.
Thursday 28 February 2013, 7pm
A performance and screening by Joseph Walsh presenting ideas for a new film. The subject of the film is a man Walsh knows who has built his own archive of DVDs on black history. This archive is combined with scripted text and theatrical devices to create a live film trailer.
Walsh sees his moving image work as a series of 'video portraits'. He is interested in this format as a means to construct a character by proxy, through external objects and ideas, and how this can be used to describe an emerging subject.
Joseph Walsh (born 1978, Surrey) lives and works in London. Recent solo exhibitions include Evolution of the Meringue, Five Years, London (2011), Track 5, The Old Police Station, London (2011), and he participated in a presentation as part of Latent Cinema, Zabludowicz Collection, London (2012). Recent group exhibitions include Testbed1, Beaconsfield, London (2010) and Time Machine and Anywhere Door at IT Park, Taipei (2010).
