Artist Guy Sherwin will be in conversation with Madeleine Kennedy, exhibitions curator at The Laing Art Gallery, and artist Rosie Morris at this edition of NFM's FILM CLUB strand.
The event will include screenings of a selection of Guy's work, likely drawn from Short Film Series (1975-2015), Bay Bridge from Embarcadero (2002/6), Soundtrack Augmented (1977/2015), and Camden Road Station (1973/2003).
Guy Sherwin has been invited to perform and screen his work as part of 'Circles are Slices of Spheres', an exhibition curated by Rosie Morris at the Laing Art Gallery. The exhibition creates a meditative environment to reflect on our experiences and relationship to being in the world, here specifically drawing on the context of the Laing’s architectural gallery space and the intangible elements which define this sense of space. Sherwin’s work similarly looks at light, space and time, drawing from architecture, our environment and scrutinising the everyday.
"These films are all about relationships - between light and darkness, light and camera, camera and subject, subject and filmmaker and viewer, all at once and played out not only on the screen but also in the mysterious conjunction between the projected film and the viewer" - Andy Ditzler
When: Saturday 17th December, 6-9pm.
Where: The Laing Art Gallery, New Bridge St, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 8AG
