SOUTH KIOSK SUMMER SCREEN
South Kiosk will be turning its gallery into a screening space, for a series of one-off events taking place over the course of latter summer months.
Tuesday July 22nd – David Blair ‘Wax or the Discovery of Television Among the Bees
For their first event, South Kiosk are excited to be showing Wax or the Discovery of Television Among the Bees (1992) by David Blair. Wax or the Discovery of Television Among the Bees is an independent feature film (featuring a cameo by William Burroughs), that takes the viewer through a world of supernormal photography, flight simulation, Mesopotamian bees and telepathic communication. Transferred to a digital format from a VCR format, Wax was the first film to have been streamed on the Internet, and was also the first to have been re-formatted as hypertext and posted online.
Tuesday August 5th - Oscillate Wildly: Video Feedback and Analogue Visuals
Featuring work by James Alec Hardy, Phil Baljeu, Will Cenci, Greg Zifcak, Dan Sandin
For Oscillate Wildly, South Kiosk will work with a number of artists, musicians and technologists to construct an immersive installation of flickering CRT surfaces. The various works will offer up a series of experiments in visual mutation through analogue processes, and the degradation of video signal and the VHS tape format. These different approaches offer perspective on a particular branch of filmmaking, and sonic experimentation.
August 20th - Centralia: An Evening of Artist Video and Film Screenings
Featuring work by Emma Charles, Cressida Kocienski, Maurits Koster & Kasper Jacobs, Emily Richardson and more tbc
Centralia is a near-ghost town in Pennsylvania USA, whose population has dwindled from 1,000 residents to 10, as a result of a mine fire that has been burning beneath the borough since 1962. The artists films screened on the evening of 20th have been selected based upon the themes explored within their narratives. Delving into hidden, subterranean spaces and across desolate landscapes we are encouraged to imagine how new futures and communities might emerge.
September 5th - Daniel Jones ‘Reordering 1 (Sans Soleil)’
South Kiosk is excited to be screening Daniel Jones' Ordering #1 (Sans/Soleil), a reworking of Chris Marker’s Sans Soleil (1983) in which the film’s frames are sorted in order of luminosity. A prolonged viewing dispels the suggestion that the re-ordering is chaotic. Patterns and structures being to emerge, as the film moves from the darkest frames of its opening to those of maximal brightness.
September 6th - Thomson & Craighead ‘The Time Machine In Alphabetical Order’
The Time Machine In alphabetical order is a complete rendition of the 1960's film version of the HG Wells Novella, re-edited by Thomson & Craighead into alphabetical order from beginning to end. In doing so, the artists attempt to perform a kind of time travel on the movie's original time-line through the use of a system of classification.
