Double short film screening, Friday, 20th May, 1pm
Ansaphone by George Barber
6 minutes, Colour, Sound
Ansaphone is a collection of video portraits recorded on a specially made spinning camera. However, each person’s portrait or appearance in the video is determined by the length of the ansaphone message they have left on George’s machine at one time or another. As it is based on George’s ansamachine, the people in it are chiefly friends. Most prominent are Martin Amis, Paul Smith and Suzanne Moore, who have lain down in order for George to take their portrait. *
Shot in and around the studio and garden of the painter Paul Cézanne in Aix en provence and also on the mountain Saint Victoire; the focus of a long running series of paintings made between 1882-1906. Soundtrack by Toshiya Tsunoda.
On selected Friday lunchtimes between April and September, we will be screening a series of films created by artists, or focusing on aspects of art practice.
Selected with Film Curator Alice Butler, she will also introduce each film and moderate a post-screening Q+A.
Free! Booking can be done here or come on the day, subject to availability!
All screenings take place in Gallery 18.
