Paul Sharits, Untitled (Frozen Film Frame), 1971.

This screening is a rare opportunity to see works by American artist Paul Sharits. Declarative Mode (1976 – 77) and Razor Blades (1965) are both syncronised, dual 16mm projections that epitomise his structural and minimal approach and reach for, as he described it, the higher drama of celluloid’. Also showing is Sharits’ Word Movie (1966) and Michael Snow’s SSHTOORRTY (2005).

Presented as part of Counterflows 2016, this is a contextual event for a new performance by Florrie James & Ross Little with Dick 50, presented as part of the festival on Saturday 9 April.
