MORE INFO/ BUY TICKETS

This screening presents a selection of films by artists who explore theatricality and the non-realist, internal, metaphysical, visionary processes of the mind. It is a rare chance to see a well considered comination of works spanning a period of 70 years. Works by Humphry Jennings, Len Lye, Jayne Parker, Bernard Penrose & Dora Carrington, Jeff Keen, Bruce Lacey & Jill Bruce and Mark Aerial Waller.

Midwatch presents Mark E Smith (The Fall) & Steve Evets (Pirates of the Carribbean, Looking for Eric, Robin Hood) as characters who descend into a vertiginous battle of wills aboard a ship returning from the first British nuclear tests off Western Australia. The ship's caterer (Smith) casts a language of poetryover the military-technological language of a mutineer(Evets), who has entered the galley looking for biscuits. Meanwhile the sound of deformed crewmen waddle across the decks above their heads. Adapted from interviews with British Nuclear Veterans.

14-os dalių filmo „Laikas kartu“ istorija vyksta patraukliame vasariškos Lietuvos fone, kur pasiklydusi moteris (Smiltė Bagdžiūnė) susidraugauja su nepažįstamąja (Monika Bičiunaitė), vedančia ją per eilę ritualinių patirčių, formuojančių kultą ar politinę grupuotę. Pasakojimas pilnas paslapčių, o keisti, dėmesį prikaustantys siužeto vingiai verčia žiūrovo mintis klajoti ieškant atsakymų. Saviti Marko Aerialio Wallerio filmai tarsi sukuria kitą dimensiją, susiejančią juos su moksline fantastika ir mįslingais Adolfo Bioy Casareso ar Philipo K. Dicko tekstais.

Apie režisierių:

Jis kuria videofilmus, skulptūras ir situacijas, savo darbuose aprėpdamas platų temų ratą nuo biocheminių mechanizmų, kurie nulemia mūsų socialinius santykius sąveikas, iki branduolinio sektoriaus darbuotojų Jungtinėje Karalystėje.

TIME TOGETHER movie BY MARK AERIAL WALLER

 

Premiere of Time Together (2013) with presentation by artist Darius Mikšys

LUX at Hackney Picturehouse
Mon 23 Sept 18:45
BOOK HERE

Time Together, a film in 14 episodes, is set against the luscious backdrop of summertime Lithuania, where a lost woman (Smiltė Bagdžiūnė) is befriended by a stranger (Monika Bičiunaitė) and lead through a series of ritual exercises towards the formation of a cult or political cell. The story is deeply mysterious, yet the strangely compelling scenarios, each with a cliffhanger, leave the mind racing. What-if’s on a cosmological scale. Mark Aerial Waller’s unique films almost come from another dimension, from a position shared with the science fiction and mystery writing of Adolfo Bioy Casares or Philip K Dick.

In Lithuanian with English subtitles

Commissioned by the Centre for Contemporary Art Vilnius as part of Midaugas Triennial, The 11th Baltic Triennial of International Arts

Sunday 28 April 2013

The Arts Catalyst
50-54 Clerkenwell Road
London EC1M 5PS

A programme of artists’ films investigating nuclear culture from the perspective of the 21st Century reflecting on 1980s feminist experimental film and activism, gritty dramatic satire of the 1990s, and recent video-essay works from 2009 – 2012. Artists narrate their own experience of nuclear environments in Britain, the Urals, Estonia, Ukraine, Japan and Canada, traveling back home or to sites of disaster to try and capture the invisible or the unimaginable. Investigating the aesthetic implications of radiation reveals the impossibility of capturing an energy that bleaches the images from film and erases the hard drives of digital devices.

The day includes a roundtable discussion on nuclear critique from nuclear entropy, utopian and dystopian belief systems, questioning scientific certainty, political agency and the proliferation of nuclear culture. Including artists Kodwo Eshun (Otolith Group) and Mark Aerial Waller in conversation with philosopher Liam Sprod, chaired by artist Susan Kelly.

Curated by Ele Carpenter with students from MFA Curating, Goldsmiths College, University of London.

SCREENING AND DISCUSSION
WITH MARK AERIAL WALLER

WEDNESDAY 21st November 2012 at 3pm

AT JERWOOD VISUAL ARTS, within "NOW I GOTTA REASON", a Jerwood Encounters exhibition co-curated by Marcus Coates and Grizedale Arts that focuses on art production as a useful and productive activity.

karpouziaaa, a live work by mark aerial waller, made for the whitley arts festival, reading

SHOWING: KARPOUZIAAA (2009) 18min

Karpouziaaa is a video document of a live event by Mark Aerial Waller commissioned by Whitley Arts Festival, Reading.

This project is an extension of Waller's practice of introducing fictional scenarios to participants of a video production, in which the fiction edges into an intense experience, where the audience and participants overlap. Here in Karpouziaaa, the audience are also in the video, the audience being the people of Whitley who are participating in the fictional sales experience. The improvised public performance, becoming shopping experiment, was held for a single day at the end of September 2009, and documented on video with participation of the community of Whitley.

Karpouziaaa means 'watermelons' in Greek, the word can be heard in urban streets and villages, called out over loudspeakers from open backed trucks, mobile fruit and vegetable shops.

"Having spent several weeks visiting the area, meeting young people and organiser Angela Bovell at the youth and community centre, I saw that the area didn't need a film, but did need more activity in the empty streets. So the work became a production of a situation. The local community and I set up a mobile fruit and vegetable shop for the day, always knowing that it was being prepared for a film, it was as if the mobile shop was being art directed and we were the extras on the scene. We set up a workshop thinking about what we might shout over the loudspeakers as we drove through the estates of Whitley, a young poet prepared some work and others thought of a dance routine."
 Mark Aerial Waller

Karpouziaaa tests the edge between fiction and action, between make-believe play and work. For one day Waller set up a mobile vegetable shop with residents of Whitley, calling out songs and items for sale over a megaphone. The salesperson’s voice becomes a bold rhythmic poem – a public voice usually associated with political canvassing and totalitarian science fiction dystopias. The realm of poetry is made concrete for a day through the routine of buying and selling.

The final film was screened on a domestic television in the home of one of the participants for the exhibition Whitley Arts Trail (2011), where residents opened their front rooms to the public for the exhibition. Children, local families and visiting art enthusiasts mixed in the milieu of the front rooms of Whitley.

The Government of the First and Thirteenth Chair

Seminal British conceptual artist John Latham’s performance work re-worked at Wysing Arts Centre as part of a day of performances and live works that look at ideas around space and time.

Conceived and Performed by: Gillian Bexfield, Christopher Brazier, Darrell Broom, Denzil Dean, Josh Lockwood, Hannah Wallis.
Dramaturge: Mark Aerial Waller

Saturday 10 March 2-7pm

WYSING ARTS CENTRE, FOX ROAD, BOURN, CAMBRIDGE CB23 2TX

The performance of the late John Latham’s work at Wysing is the first of a series of new re-workings of the artist’s play The Government of the First and Thirteenth Chair, for camera, for live audience and for publication.  In the collaboration between Wysing, Flat Time House (Latham’s studio and home in Peckham) and Norwich University College of the Arts (NUCA), artist Mark Aerial Waller has reworked Latham’s original script and stage directions with students from NUCA to develop a new version of the play, which expresses Latham’s theories of space and time.

BOOK TICKETS HERE or on 01954 718881.
This event is FREE and Wysing are considering organising transport by coach from London (£18 return) and Cambridge (£8 return) if there is enough demand. If you would like to take advantage of this then please let Wysing know when booking.

For further visitor information see www.wysingartscentre.org

Emma Smith’s ongoing project ∆E=W, developed with the support of Artsadmin from a series of experiments involving touch, the gaze and spatial harmonics, looks at the experience we have in a gallery through a series of vocal and physical responses to the work on display.  Mark Essen shows a new short video work. Francesco Pedraglio’s The Evidence of an Object focuses on the conceptual and practical difficulties of storytelling, reflecting on the idea that any narrative, as much as it creates dependency for its listeners, relies on their interpretative will.  Cally Spooner reads a score for a new theatre production on the possibility of not performing. A film programme for a phosphorescent screen has been curated in collaboration with Gil Leung of LUX and artist Ed Atkins.

Total derive on commodity fetishism: born again, perverted and reclaimed
There is some kind of sacrifice, once these clothes have been baptised they are not refundable or returnable, their commodity value has been washed away.
The submerged are both serious and exultant. There is a sense of triumph around. The years spent infusing the garments with corporate branding and pseudo philosophy have been dismantled in an instant by powerful niche eroticism.

"                     "[sic] TIM GOLDIE is one of the most original noise musician/performers on the European scene. His double album "ABJECTOR"[sic] is a violent and considered examination of the fragmentation of language, the de-composition of instrumental research and the painful suffering that accompanies it. Far from any current or cultural influence, Goldie's work places itself in a unique conceptual universe, and its cruel voice warbles a mix of agony and ecstasy. Netmage Festival, Italy 2009
