Moving the Image – 16th of March

Come and join us for a pop-up short film evening with a bold selection of international films that make you move!

Dive into a world where rhythms reveal secrets and desires, where the beat makes your blood pulsate and where the senses come alive.
In this short film program, movement is our main character who is not just explored through the body, but also through the edit, the sound and the camera lens. Movement tells us an important story on how we frame our world(s), communicate and interact. All our individual experiences meet each other on the common ground of body language.

When: 16th of March, 7.30 – 10 pm
Where: @ Juju’s Bar & Stage, 15 Hanbury Street, London, E1 6QR
Pre-sale tickets till 1 March: Eventbrite InShortFF

Moving the Image is curated by InShort Film Festival and ANNE • and organised in collaboration with Juju’s Bar & Stage. InShortFF promotes independent, inclusive and international short films, and it is a fully volunteer-based initiative. Our programme includes F-Rating, meaning we give a shout out to films that are either directed/written/performed by women.

ANNE • goes Japanese

Last month Miku and I took our collaboration to the next boarder: Japan!

We have explored Japan’s city Tokyo and the rural environment of the Izu Peninsula through film and movement.

Whilst filming the theme of the individual versus the mass crept into our frame. Not only does Japan have millions of people living in just one city or travelling over the many highways and train tracks, it also has a great individual disconnect with its direct surroundings.
Dark subject matters as loneliness and the high suicide rate amongst the young generation made their appearance.
The beauty of Japan’s unplanned architectural compositions, however, gave us calligraphy lines to move and explore.

Miku and I are looking to deepen this movement research in a country that has so many beautiful contrasts.

So stay tuned for more exciting projects across borders @AnnePointNL

OF(f) COURSE – ANNE• & Kathrin Gramelsberger

OF(f) COURSE is a new research project in collaboration with Kathrin Gramelsberger. It stems from my graduation piece ‘On An Empty Stomach’, for which I received distinction at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, London.

Spread through multiple locations in London Kathrin and I went looking for movement and rhythm. I examined various ways in which I can compose my digital canvas to achieve a digital collage painting. My central focus point is rhythm, which I research through elements of light, lines, textures, repetition and movement. Kathrin has gone in search of the movement and rhythm in the location and how they affect her own movements.

Follow the research that extends between London and Amsterdam right here.

What’s the point of it? – Martin Creed

Life – laughing – numbers

Triggered from reading an article about Martin Creed in Aesthetica Magazine issue 57, I hastened myself to the Hayward Gallery in London.
Almost the whole gallery is dedicated to a diverse collection of the artists work. Every room, corner, level, wall and outdoors of the gallery is used to show the many No.’s that plunge you into a different dimension of reality, were everything is seriously humoristic and relative; it all depends how you look at it. The great amount of work creates a big collage that makes the building come alive giving it a heartbeat of movement.

Seducing all your senses even before you can give permission, brought on the pulsing allure of this exhibition that had a lot in common with that of an installation. Sounds make you aware that something is going on in a different place long before you reach it. Like in a big theme park I got really excited to try everything out, noticing impatience taking a hold of me.
My attention was firstly drawn by a clicking sound (Work No. 112: Thirty-nine metronomes beating time, one at every speed, 1995-98) before I could registrar what I was seeing. Searching for its source I encountered my sense of touch by almost wanting to duck out of the way of a big iron bar swooping over my head carrying the immense neon words MOTHER (Work No. 1092, 2011). While this installation was speeding up in its circular motion, I heard a very soft hint of tones climbing up a ladder. By entering the next space it became clear to me that this sound belonged to an actual piano and his player (Work No. 736: Piano accompaniment, 2007).

Knowing now where the sound had come from I lost interest in the actual work, which let me to wonder around in the space till I was watching a pile of arranged boxes (Work No. 916, 2008) when I caught a new sound. Something, that hold the middle between a fart and a sticking out of your tongue to your rivals sound, seemed to come out of all the artworks I laid my eyes on. Upon approaching the different artworks, however, I lost the sound connection, making me move on in the search of its origin. Ending up at a small sound speaker at the bottom of a staircase where I noticed out of the corner of my eye a change in light every other minute.

This switching light led me to enter the second level of the building where indeed the light was switchinh on and off (Work No. 227: The lights going on and off, 2000) to make place for short video clips (Work No. 670: Orson & Sparky, 2007) projected largely on one side of the space. On the other side of the space a sea of broccoli (Work No. 1000: Broccoli prints, 2009-10) engulfed the wall behind glass frames. I got fascinated by the way these frames picked up the switching light as well as the reflection of MOTHER. Her reflection revealed the secret behind her white neon light as with every rotation it showed her blue, green, yellow, pink and purple colours.

Moving up the stairs to the top level I started to see every part of the building as a possible participant of the exhibition. And not soon enough I was turning around when two works men entered the building carrying a bucket and gigantic pickaxe. Was this part of the exhibition or just a happy coincidence?
Turning another corner I encountered moving curtains (Work No. 990: A curtain opening and closing, 2009) that revealed the London skyline and made me go outside to get startled by a living car (Work No. 1686, 2013).

After having entered the exciting and calming balloon room (Work No. 200: Half the air in a given space, 1998) I went down the staircase where I halted at the toilet area because I heard some distinct sniggering, probably the most reassuring sound in a toilet block! Entering the small hall space in front of the toilets I discovered the source: another sound speaker protruded form the wall between the two entrance doors of the toilets.

Arriving at the exit I had a chance to leave all my shit behind by watching people puke and poop on screen (Work No. 503, 2006) in a line carpeted square room: Home.

You need to go and see this unique exhibition in the Hayward Gallery in London extended till the 5th of May!
