DESCRIPTION

Object Subjects is a collection of recent films that present different approaches to performance for camera, involving interaction with objects. The works selected play with the idea of objects as subjects and the human subject as an object. Performance, sculpture and video fuse together. Many of the artists included play with the materiality of film and remind us that it has physical form, that it can be cut, edited and shaped.

The screening will last 65 minutes in total. Each artist’s film will be screened once in turn during the evening.

The screening will be accompanied by small booklet with a contextual essay by Katie Guggenheim.
