Toegevoegd: Guy Edmonds and Marcy Saude
Guy Edmonds and Marcy Saude are artists interested in exploring and working through properties of 16mm and Super 8 film. They will present a joint exhibition of selected short films alongside experimental and found films in dialog with their work.
Guy Edmonds makes trans-genre films, inspired particularly by his love of amateur and experimental film, which often explore different aspects of historical film technology. He studied Fine Art and History of Art at Camberwell School of Art in London and Preservation and Presentation of the Moving Image at the University of Amsterdam. In addition to filmmaking, he has also reworked his ideas about film through performances, screenings and programmes such as the ‘Séance du Cinema’ and ‘Saloon of Refuse.’
Marcy Saudeʼs work involves subjects such as marginal histories, the landscape, counterculture, and language. She is interested in DIY aesthetics, appropriation, homesteading, the relationship between the natural and built environments and politics, and expanded notions of non-fiction. She received an MFA in Studio Art from the University of Colorado at Boulder and recently relocated to Amsterdam from Los Angeles.
Alternative Strategies #1: Handmade Home is playing Sunday, August 19 at the Mandrake in Los Angeles as part of a program curated by Mike Stolz and Alee Peoples for Los Angeles Art Resource, including films by Laida Lertxundi, Brigid McCaffrey, Adele Horne, Mark Toscano, Kenneth Tam, Bobbi Woods, and Sarah Rara.
I’ve curated recent Los Angeles film and video works for Stichting Raspoetin in Amsterdam June 23, and will be there to introduce the program.
Some Unseen Lights: New LA Film + Video
This two-part program brings together a sampling of new film and video from Los Angeles artists working in and around the expanded edges of moving image forms. Topics and approaches include the psychedelic potential of plant-life representations; contemporary explorations of the dual nature of film material as physical object and medium; a grappling with the recent occupation of Los Angeles City Hall that finds commitment to politics and aesthetics coexisting on the raw fringes of documentary practice; new video work from a longtime master of layered optical imagery; a miniature evocation of Southern California as space-age landscape; parallels between the control of workers and images; the geopolitical implications of planetary theory; fire and song; poppies; and a video about fruit.
In the second part of the program, degradation and deterioration of image and sound develops into an increasingly abstracted treatment of memory and fragmented narrative.
Featuring works by Sean Batton and Kelsey Brain, Daniel Brantley and Cameron Stallones, Akina Cox, Helga Fassonaki, Corey Fogel, Andrew Kim, Pat O’Neill, Mike Stolz, Mark Toscano, John Warren, and Travis Wilkerson.
