STUDIO DIARY SERIES (Abridged) + Q&A
Time & Location
About The Event
Presented by Exploding Appendix in partnership with Fabrica
Exploding Appendix are proud to present the first UK screening of the Studio Diary Series by artists Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais.
Since meeting in 2010 Daniel & Clara have been working together creating performance and moving image work concerned with the purpose of creativity and the power of art to transform reality. Their shared passion for the history of cinema and painting has led them on a deeply personal investigation into the nature of moving images, with a particular focus on the role of cinema as an art-form and its relationship to the imagination. Their films are visually striking, immersive experiences often created using a variety of obsolete video formats, such as Hi8, VHS and Mini-DV.
Throughout 2018 the artists embarked on an ambitious new project called the Studio Diaries. Created over the course of seven months, this series of 100 short films capture the workings of the artists' daily creative practice, but more than simply documenting, the Studio Diary Series is creative thought in action. Each film is an investigation into the language of moving images, exploring how narrative and meaning are constructed through the relationship between sound and image.
This special presentation at Fabrica will consist of an abridged version of the Studio Diary Series followed by a Q&A with the artists.
