FILM: A Religious Experience
Time & Location
About The Event
Videoclub presents Third Thursdays at Fabrica showing films by artists Chen Pin Tao AKA AznGothBoy, Matt Lambert and Lu Yang, which give diverse interpretations and explorations of religion and godliness. The films take us on journeys that are otherworldly and fantastical, exploring queerness, omnipresence, and plant-based gods.
AznGothBoy AKA Chen Pin Tao, Temple of Physiotology, 2019, 8:46 mins
Chen Pin Tao’s Physiotology series embodies an existential angst towards the nature of being. It puts forward propositions in which religion and conventional cultural establishments are questioned. In the video work Temple of Physiotology, both fact and fiction are obscured to create factish narratives. Through these narratives, an otherworldly space-time continuum is generated for the viewer to dwell in and experience.
Matt Lambert, God is Watching, 2017, 3:24 mins
The avant-garde performance artist, David Hoyle remembers his first visit to a gay club, and discusses the importance of safe spaces. Commissioned by Tate and Random Acts.
Lu Yang, Moving Gods, 2015, 4:43 mins
Moving Gods focuses on religious subject matters, which Lu Yang’s work is noted for exploring. Using a mixture of CGI and live action, the artist references religious iconography from Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism, Chinese Mahayana Buddhism, Hinduism, ShingonBuddhism, and Christianity to create living representations of iconographic Gods.
