is a screen-based installation curated by Darryl Georgiou. It makes
links between experimental film avant-gardes and new media art.
Kinopixel also marks the 30th anniversary of the pioneering 'Video Art
78' exhibition at The Herbert which showcased early work by artists
central to the video art movement in the late 1970s. Kinopixel provides
a timely review of experimental moving image as it migrates from film
and video to digital.
The work presented is free from narrative. The content explodes on
screen, revealing fragments, shaping material, light, process and time
to create free aesthetic forms. The results are open to interpretation
and reveal themselves through inspection
Kinopixel is an artist-led project with an ongoing research and production programme.
