As part of their inaugural festival, pic.london presents a two-day film programme exploring the relationship between still and moving images. Beginning with film’s infancy at the end of the 19th Century – through the 1960s avant-garde – this programme investigates the ways in which artists and theorists have engaged the moving image to develop, challenge and critique photographic language.

Multiform examines the representation of the image through the media materiality and the creative process of the artist. The multiple media used to create the films and videos of this program demonstrate a variety of devices directly related to the material and conceptual reappropriation of the image by the artist. Through the use of found footage, self-portrait, homage, or travel diary, the works unveil their mechanism, their organicity, their process and their own representation.
