Workshop: ANALOGY LOOM with Duncan Marquiss at Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2016, 2-5 March 2017

Posted on February 15th, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Deadline for applications to take part in the workshop: Wednesday 22 February

Every concept we have is a tightly packaged bundle of analogies. All we do when we think is to leap from one analogy-bundle to another — and, such leaps are themselves made via analogical connection, to boot.
– Douglas Hofstadter

In 1942 the neuroscientist Charles S. Sherrington famously compared the human mind to an “enchanted loom”. In her 1976 installation Text & Commentary the video artist Beryl Korot made an analogy between the threads on her weaving loom and the lines that make up a video image. Taking analogical thinking as its focus, this workshop will use video as a framework for examining the human tendency to draw comparisons and think in metaphors.

Can an analogy be the subject of a film? How might the form and structure of a film mimic its subject matter? Through discussions and practical exercises Analogy Loom will consider how artists and filmmakers use analogies to generate ideas and devise new formal approaches by combining disparate topics, materials and processes.

The workshop will be led by Scottish artist Duncan Marquiss. Marquiss works with the moving image, drawing, writing and music. His practice is often driven by a search for patterns and connections between seemingly unrelated subject areas. He takes these analogies as starting points for process-led artworks that overlap disparate materials and cultural references. Marquiss has exhibited his films internationally, including presentations at the BFI London Film Festival; Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art; and Microscope Gallery, New York. He was the recipient of the Margaret Tait Award in 2015.

Applications are invited from artists, filmmakers and art professionals to participate in Analogy Loom. For further information on how to apply, please click here.

Analogy Loom is hosted by LUX Scotland, British Council and Kochi Biennale Foundation.

Posted on January 19th, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Saturday 25 February, 6.15pm
CCA Cinema, Glasgow
Book Tickets, £10/ £8 concessions

A woman travels alone, through a destroyed and abandoned city. She wants to pass the Forbidden Zone and get to the sea… Deceptive traps lurk everywhere. The Morning Patrol is guarding and they are on her trail.

She is approached by one of the few survivors. Having a fractured memory in common, they become close to one another. Together, they try to recall the past and make some sense out of this catastrophe. A story of love in an unbearable world, surrounded by violence and death… What point can it have?

Followed by a Q&A with lead actress Michele Valley, artist and filmmaker Anja Kirschner, and director of LUX Scotland, Nicole Yip.

This screening is part of GFT’s Crossing the Line strand, presented by Glasgow Film Festival and LUX Scotland.

Screening: Anja Kirschner, ‘Moderation’ at GFF17

Posted on January 19th, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Friday 24 February, 8pm
CCA Cinema, Glasgow
Book Tickets, £10/ £8 concessions

Set in Egypt, Greece and Italy, Moderation revolves around a female horror director and a screenwriter whose latest collaboration is haunted by encounters with its ‘raw material’ and the escalation of conflicting desires.

Faced with the disintegration of their project, the director becomes more and more drawn into conversations with the actors she has cast, which reflect on the way horror traverses the affective and material realities of their lives on and off the screen.

Followed by a Q&A with director Anja Kirschner, actress Michele Valley and director of LUX Scotland, Nicole Yip.

This screening is part of GFT’s Crossing the Line strand, presented by Glasgow Film Festival and LUX Scotland.

For Glasgow Film Festival 2017, Anja Kirschner will also host a Masterclass and Workshop as part of our SUPERLUX programme and take part in a Q&A following the screening of Morning Patrol by Nikos Nikolaidis, which is referenced in Kirschner’s Moderation.

SUPERLUX Workshop: Page to Picture! Screenwriting for Artists at GFF17

Posted on January 19th, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Friday 24 Feb – Saturday 25 Feb, 11am–5pm
Seminar Room, Glasgow School of Art, Reid Building
Free for SUPERLUX members, ticketed via Eventbrite

Anja Kirschner will introduce approaches to screenwriting outside of conventional formats and how to tailor them for your own moving image projects. The focus will be on expanded narrative structures, adaptation and appropriation, using examples from her own work as well as that of other artists, directors and writers, including Yvonne Rainer, Emily Wardill, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Alain Robbe-Grillet and Kathy Acker.

This practical and theoretical workshop is designed for artists working with the moving image and experimental filmmakers who want to develop screenwriting as an integral part of their practice.

Anja Kirschner is an artist whose films draw on factual, literary and pop-cultural sources and deal with materiality, digitality and narrativity and their share in the (de)formation of subjectivities and political agency. She is the recipient of the 2011 Jarman Award and her films have been widely exhibited and screened internationally, including at Secession, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Tate Modern, the Berlinale, the BFI London Film Festival and the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen.

Presented by LUX Scotland as part of the programme for SUPERLUX, LUX Scotland’s membership scheme. SUPERLUX is free and easy to join, simply sign up now to become a member.

Drawing on her new feature film Moderation (2016), Anja Kirschner will give an insider’s account of the different stages of making an artists’ film, from inception through to development, realisation and distribution. She will focus on her research into horror cinema from cold-war Europe, Infitah-era Egypt and Metapolitefsi Greece, which refused to naturalistically represent lived experience or to sublimate it by recourse to the irrational.

Posted on January 19th, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Monday 20 February, 6.45pm
GFT, Glasgow
Free, available from GFT box office on the day. 

Named after acclaimed Scottish experimental filmmaker Margaret Tait, Glasgow Film Festival’s annual award is supported by Creative Scotland and LUX, and recognises Scottish and Scotland based artists who work within film and moving image in an experimental and innovative way.

Join us for the world premiere of this new moving image work by Kate Davis. Inspired by the ways in which Margaret Tait’s films invite us to contemplate fundamental emotions and everyday activities that are often overlooked, Davis’ new film questions how the essential, but largely invisible and unpaid, processes we employ to care for others and ourselves could be reimagined.

The recipient of the 2017/2018 Margaret Tait Award will be announced at the screening, from shortlisted artists, Jamie Crewe, Sarah Forrest, Margaret Salmon and Kimberley O’Neill.

Sarah Neely and Gerda Stevenson on Margaret Tait, chaired by Mitch Miller

Orcadian poet and filmmaker, Margaret Tait (1918–99) was one of Britain’s most unique and individual filmmakers and most under-appreciated poets. Her influences ranged from Federico García Lorca to Emily Dickinson, Morton Feldman and the films of the Italian Neo-Realists. In her new book, Sarah Neely (Senior Lecturer, University of Stirling) reappraises Tait’s poetry and portraits, her sounds and vital place in both Scottish letters and cinematic history.

To celebrate the launch of this publication, Neely will be in conversation with actor/writer/director Gerda Stevenson, who played the character Greta in Tait’s only feature film, Blue Black Permanent (1992). The event will be chaired by Mitch Miller, editor of The Drouth, who has also written on Tait’s films and poetry.

Presented in partnership Glasgow Film Festival.

Screening: Margaret Tait, ‘Blue Black Permanent’ at GFF17

Posted on January 19th, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Thursday 16 February, 6.00pm
CCA Cinema, Glasgow
Book Tickets, £10/ £8 concessions

In conjunction with the screening of her 2016 Margaret Tait Award film, artist Kate Davis will present a screening of Margaret Tait’s Blue Black Permanent, a film that informed her new work. Tait’s sole feature film, Blue Black Permanent sits as the Orcadian film-poet’s only attempt to move from her celebrated abstract and allusive shorter works into longer narratives. Employing a complex ‘Russian Doll’ narrative, the film spans three generations of an Orcadian family. As the protagonist Barbara attempts to understand her past, the film flashes back to her mother Greta and grandmother Mary. The film demonstrates Tait’s interest in natural cycles and can be seen to have autobiographical elements through the central character’s interest in poetry and film. Also selected by Kate Davis, Margaret Raspé’s Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow – Let Them Swing will screen as a short before the main feature.

This screening is part of GFT’s Crossing the Line strand, presented by Glasgow Film Festival and LUX Scotland.

Book Launch: Shoot Shoot Shoot: The London Film-Makers’ Co-operative 50th Anniversary, Talk & Book Launch 

Posted on January 17th, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Monday 23 January, 6.30pm
CCA Cinema, Glasgow
Tickets free, via Eventbrite

LUX Scotland celebrates the launch of the LUX publication Shoot Shoot Shoot: The First Decade of the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative 1966-76 with an illustrated talk by Mark Webber.

Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative – LUX’s historical predecessor – this new book explores the formative years of the organisation by bringing together texts, interviews, images and a large number of archival documents

Initially founded in October 1966 as a non-commercial distributor of experimental films, the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative was soon reconfigured into a unique organisation that provided access to production facilities and developed a context for radical investigations of film as material. Its film workshop enabled artists to control every stage of the filmmaking process; a creative freedom that was often extended, through the creation of expanded cinema works, to the moment of projection.

Collectively run on a largely voluntary basis, the LFMC operated without funding throughout its early years. Nonetheless, it maintained a distribution office, cinema space and film workshop in each of the run-down, former industrial buildings in which it was based. This precarious but supportive environment stimulated a remarkable body of films and theoretical work that anticipated today’s diverse culture of artists’ moving image.

Mark Webber, editor of Shoot Shoot Shoot, will present an illustrated talk that includes rarely seen documentary footage, archival materials and screenings of key films from the period. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at a discounted price. 

This event has been rescheduled, after a cancellation in December. Initially programmed as part of a wider programme by LUX and LUX Scotland celebrating the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative’s 50th anniversary #LFMC50.

This event is free to attend. 

Booking required due to limited capacity; please reserve your place via Eventbrite.

Screening: LUX Scotland presents ‘Steve Reinke, Anthology of American Folk Song & Selected Shorts’

Posted on January 10th, 2017 by LUX Scotland
Sunday 5 February, 7.40pm
GFT, Glasgow
Book Tickets, £9.50/ 7.50 concessionsSteve Reinke’s Anthology of American Folk Song (2004) and other works selected for this screening explore the relationships between desires, bodies and action. Selected from Reinke’s extensive collection and created from appropriated media and the artist’s ironic musings, this series of shorts seeks to interrogate the use of desire as a material for artists’ film, examining the interaction between voice, performativity and subversion.

Chicago-based Reinke is an artist best known for his single-channel video work, alongside a prolific output of writing which often informs his filmmaking practice. The films selected are characteristic of Reinke’s wry style of delivery – diaristic and personal, interrupted by wit, libidinal urges and the inane everyday.

The programme also features the Scottish premiere of Reinke’s new work, A Boy Needs a Friend (2015), following on from screenings at The Berlinale and New York Film Festival, as well as an introductory text written by Glasgow-based artist, Gordon Douglas. Please click here to read the text.

This screening is part of GFT’s Crossing the Line strand, curated by Seán Elder and presented by LUX Scotland.

Event: Towards a Scottish Collection of Artists’ Moving Image

Posted on January 6th, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Panel Discussion & Screening Programme
Friday 13 January, 2 – 5.30pm
CCA Theatre, Glasgow
Free, booking required via Eventbrite

What does it mean to build a Scottish collection of artists’ moving image? What should such a collection comprise and what functions should it fulfil?

LUX Scotland hosts the first in a series of events around the establishment of its new distribution collection of Scottish artists’ moving image work. The intention for this project is not only to promote and make this work publicly accessible on both a national and international level, but also to explore how such a collection might function as a way of consolidating a history or tradition of moving image culture in Scotland. 

LUX Scotland’s collection building process is conceived as an open research project, working in consultation with the arts community across Scotland over the next few years. Through these public discussions, we hope to open out some of the questions around what it means to establish such a collection and what should be included, as well as acknowledge some of the precedents for collection building that already exist within Scotland. We will also address issues such as the problematics of defining a collection by national or geographic borders; questions around archiving, distribution and accessibility; and criteria for inclusion and exclusion.

These questions will be explored in a panel discussion chaired by writer and academic researcher, Sarah Neely (University of Stirling). The panel will include: Julie-Ann Delaney (Curator, Scottish National Galleries of Modern Art), William Fowler (Curator of Artists’ Moving Image, BFI National Archive), Nosheen Khwaja (Co-founder, Chair & Artistic Director, GLITCH Film Festival), Adam Lockhart (Archivist, Visual Research Centre, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design) and Francis McKee (Director, CCA Glasgow).

The discussion will be followed by a screening programme entitled Five Propositions, for which we have invited five people working in different roles within the Scottish arts sector to make a personal proposition for a work that should be included in the collection. The screening programme will bring together introductions and film selections from the following contributors: Anne-Marie Copestake (Artist), Alexander Hetherington (Artist, curator and writer), Moira Jeffrey (Writer), Dr Sarah Smith (Head of Art Context and Theory, Glasgow School of Art), Alexander Storey-Gordon (Artist)

Programmed to coincide with Tramway’s THE BIG PICTURE SHOW, a month-long season of artists’ moving image for children, this special evening event for parents and childcare givers presents two short works from artists Margaret Salmon and Helen Benigson, a performance by artist, Corin Sworn, followed by Claire Hooper’s arresting 2012 work, Eris.

Tracing the experiences of Danielle Marie Shillingford, a woman who has lost custody of her children, Eris blurs the boundaries between the fantastical, the superhuman and the absolutely mundane, as we see slippages between Danielle and her god-like alterego Eris, the goddess of strife and discord.

Published in 2001 ‘MOTHER READER: Essential Writings on Motherhood’ brings together a collection of texts chosen by the artist Moyra Davey which reflect upon pursuing a career as an artist, while being a mother. Sworn will perform a response to the book and present research material from a work in progress examining aspects of reproductive labor.
