As part of the second edi­ti­on of Publiek Park, Art Cinema OFFoff invi­tes the British artist and film­ma­ker Guy Sherwin.

We are cove­ring the his­to­ric band­stand in Antwerp’s Koning Albertpark with four screens for an open-air film pro­gram­me that reso­na­tes with the lands­ca­pe of the public park. Especially for this occa­si­on, Guy Sherwin rewor­ked his long-run­ning series of Animal Studies (1998 — ) and his rare­ly scree­ned lands­ca­pe film Connemara (1980) for four screens, never befo­re pre­sen­ted in this form. On top of that, he will bring his ico­nic 16mm film per­for­man­ce Paper Landscape (1975). The sounds­ca­pe of Connemara will be accom­pa­nied by a live com­po­si­ti­on by Philip Masure (gui­tar) and Aongus McGalligan (whist­le, bodhrán, uil­le­ann pipes). The octa­go­nal band­stand was built in 1877 after a design by the city archi­tect Pieter Dens in his Neo-Renaissance-influ­en­ced, eclec­tic sty­le and fea­tu­res excel­lent acoustics. 

A key figu­re in British avant-gar­de cine­ma for alrea­dy more than five deca­des, Guy Sherwin (1948) pus­hes the limits of cine­ma with his films, instal­la­ti­on works and per­for­man­ces in which he explo­res film’s fun­da­men­tal pro­per­ties: light and time. After stu­dying pain­ting at the Chelsea School of Art in the late 1960’s, he beca­me one of the dri­ving for­ces of the London Film-Makers’ Co-op (now LUX). Since 2005, Sherwin often works together with his part­ner, film and sound artist Lynn Loo. 

Publiek Park is a noma­dic con­tem­po­ra­ry art pro­ject which takes public city parks and gar­dens as its exhi­bi­ti­on grounds. At the first edi­ti­on in 2021, Art Cinema OFFoff cura­ted an open-air 16mm film pro­gram­me in the Citadelpark in Ghent. This year, Publiek Park takes pla­ce from September 15 to October 1 in Antwerp, inha­bi­ting the urban green area of Harmoniepark, Koning Albertpark and the gar­den of the Provinciehuis.
