Inside the gallery artist Philomène Hoël presents six performative screenings, from 25-27 May at Chalton Gallery, London, featuring films of Stephen Dwoskin, Jean Genet, and soundpiece by Gavin Bryars. It is the last work from a series in dialogue with the film piece Dyn Amo from the artist and film-maker Stephen Dwoskin (1973).
Nicky Hamlyn and Simon Payne present a programme of single-screen and expanded films and videos that explore colour field abstraction, grids, lines, shadows, holes and frames-within-frames that are often underpinned by repetitive, almost musical structuring. Payne's digital video works involve elementary transitions and alternating graphic forms that create spatial depths within the screen but also bounce back to affect the environment in which they're shown.
