Place Memory, Stroud Valleys Artspace

Place Memory site07

Friday 22th June 8pm & Saturday 23rd June 4pm

A two-part event of video screenings, 16mm film projection and performance brings together internationally recognised film-makers with artists from Stroud and the South West. Performance is central to much of the work: walking backwards as a way of remembering; re-enacting the painting of a wall onto the projected image; playing the piano as an act of remembrance. Many of the films use song or music: a film with live accompaniment on the saxophone; poetry set to song as the starting point for a sequence of short films. From digital archive to recollections recorded on film, this event explores ideas of memory and its association with place. Includes work by Slade academic staff: Susan Collins, Phil Coy, Jayne Parker, Sean Borodale & Louisa Fairclough More details
