  • HASENHERZ: Miloš Tomic

    By on

    Miloš Tomic is a multimedia artist whose projects span film, photography, collages, and sculpture. Tomic studied directing and then  animation—experiences that continue to influence his practice. His subjects are either comprised of or preoccupied with disposable or disposed objects. In fact, his doctoral thesis was titled “Preciousness of discarded objects, i.e. trash as the material for film, photography…” His object-based works are modified quotidian objects, like shoes sewn shut or brushes with thorns instead of bristles. Tomic also has a category of sculpture called “Pearls” which, as he describes, are “to be understood as things that are precious, wrongly forgotten or lost somewhere, but now found.” Together with Vladimir Peric Miloš Tomic represented Serbia at the Venice Biennial 2013.

  • Phantoscope: Stephen Dwoskin's Dyn Amo

    By on

    Phantoscope is Triskel Christchurch’s new quarterly experimental cinema event. In combining programmes of shorts and features from past and present, it promises to leave both eyes and minds wide open with its striking selection of some of the most startling and unusual films cinema has to offer. It launches with the late Stephen Dwoskin’s masterpiece Dyn Amo, a searing and controversial exploration of the distinction between a person’s self and the projection of that self to others, set in a strip club. The hallucinatory intensity of Dwoskin’s unique camerawork is memorably underscored by Gavin Bryars relentless drone soundtrack. 

    - Dyn Amo (Stephen Dwoskin, 1973, UK, 120 min)
    Starring: Jenny Runacre, Pat Ford and Catherine Kessler

    Phantoscope is programmed by Cork-based filmmaker Maximilian Le Cain, who brings to the task four years of experience as film curator of Black Sun, the noted experimental music/film event that was a mainstay of the Cork scene between 2009 and 2013.

  • Xcèntric: Andrew Noren, Charmed Particles

    By on

    Andrew Noren’s The Adventures of the Exquisite Corpse film series has an autobiographical dimension and is both a testimony to his private life and a tribute to love. Part four, Charmed Particles, is one of the best examples of the abstract, transforming qualities of black and white film. It explores textures and forms, combining high-contrast photography, detail shots and pixilation to create visual music of a delicate yet powerful kinesis that reveals the simple beauty of the domestic and the phantasmal nature of appearances. A luminous world in which light becomes real and illusion, flesh.

    - Charmed Particles (Andrew Noren, 1978, 16mm., silent, 78 min.)

  • Xcèntric: Time capsules. The collage films of Arthur Lipsett

    By on

    The figure of Arthur Lipsett occupies one of the most original and exciting fringes of editing and film collage. His work, which fascinated filmmakers as varied as Kubrick, Brakhage and George Lucas, was interrupted by Lipsett’s mental problems (he suffered from bipolar disorder) and the torment that led to his suicide, at the age of 46. He started out making sound collages, which he then transferred to his brilliant, enigmatic pieces produced by Canada’s NFB: combinations of images and sounds, in films of recycling and deconstruction, ironic and sarcastic visual essays about consumerism or critiques of the mass media, with jazzy or syncopated rhythms that illuminated a sense of cinema and a unique way of thinking.

    Programme:
    - Very Nice, Very Nice (Arthur Lipsett,1961, video, 6 min)
    - 21-87 (Arthur Lipsett,1964, 16 mm, 9 min)
    - Perceptual Learning (Arthur Lipsett,1965, video, 11 min)
    - Free Fall (Arthur Lipsett,1964, video, 9 min)
    - A Trip Down Memory Lane (Arthur Lipsett, 1965, video, 12 min)
    - Fluxes (Arthur Lipsett,1968, 16 mm, 23 min)

  • Under the Sun: The Films of Rose Lowder

    By on

    Brimming with vibrant images of blossoms, orchards, insects and meadows, the works of celebrated filmmaker Rose Lowder explore our relation with and impact on the world. Rare gems selected by Lowder will be shown alongside key works from one of the most distinct bodies of work in French experimental cinema. Grounded in her interest in radical agriculture, colour theory and the landscapes of her adoptive home in the south of France, Lowder is committed to filmmaking as an ecological practice inseparable from her lifelong collecting and championing of non-commercial cinema. Trained as a painter and sculptor in Lima, Peru, and London, Lowder turned to filmmaker in 1977 after studying with Jean Rouch.

    Her engagement with ways of living and filming will be explored alongside the meticulous design, composition and production of her films. The screenings will be introduced and followed by conversations with the artist.

    Khristian Weeks
    I am an artist and improviser working in the fields of sound, kinetics, assemblage, and optics. My primary interest is in the process of discovery experienced through observation and experimentation. Playing a fundamental role in my creative processes as well as in their realization is the use of silence, non-intention, and natural forces to produce self-sustaining systems of movement, sound, and optical phenomena such as shadow, caustics, reflection, refraction, and projection.
