FW: Shady Lane Film Club - Wed 13 May @ 6.30pm



Wed 13 May  6.30pm  -  double bill  FREE EVENT

Selected by the artist Phil Collins, Shady Lane Film Club is a series of film screenings exploring themes of sub-culture and fandom in connection with Collins solo exhibition the world won’t listen currently in Tramway 2.

Funeral Parade of the Roses

Film  (Toshio Matsumoto, Japan, 1969, 105 min.) Credited as being an influence on Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, the 1969 cult Japanese film Funeral Parade of Roses is a flamboyant adaptation of the traditional tragedy Oedipus Rex set in the underground gay counterculture of 1960s Tokyo. From its blissed out opening sequence to the bizarre and bloody ending, this is a film in which every single image represents either complete beauty or a complete surprise. A startling combination of visual flourishes, bizarre documentary interludes, animation and youth gang imagery set against a psychedelic soundtrack, the film follows the story of cross-dressing club kid Eddie who is plagued by hallucinatory, violent memories of his late mother and inevitably gets caught up in a gory tragedy whilst fighting for his lovers heart. Heavily redolent of the era in which it was made, this is a work whose striking images and colourful underground milieu, populated by a rag-tag collection of cross-dressers, bohemians, druggies and drop-outs, bares easy comparisons with the environment fostered by Andy Warhol and his disciples at his Factory studio in New York.   

Hail the New Puritan

Film (Charles Atlas, UK, 1985, 84 min.) Choreographed by Michael Clark and directed by fabled New York video pioneer Charles Atlas, one of the premier interpreters of dance, theatre and performance on video, Hail the New Puritan , is a fictional “docufantasy” of bohemian subculture in Thatcher-era London, depicting a decadent day-in-the-life of brilliant, 23-year-old glam-punk choreographer Michael Clark. Filmed from his mid-day wake up through to bedtime at dawn, Atlas seamlessly integrates Clark's extraordinary dance performances into the docu-narrative flow. Clark rehearses his company, is interviewed by a journalist, stages several dances and lustily unwinds with friends. Throughout, Atlas intersperses shots of London streets, following a wandering young man who embodies the dispossessed Britain. Hail the New Puritan features appearances by punk drag legend Leigh Bowery as well as Grayson Perry, Brix and Mark E. Smith.

S1 ARTSPACE PRESENTS: Kim Coleman & Jenny Hogarth | Preview 21st May

S1 Artspace presents


Glare <>

Preview: Thursday 21st May | 6.30 - 8.30pm


Video making has an inherent connection with light. For this exhibition of new commissioned video works, Kim Coleman & Jenny Hogarth focus on making and destroying the effects of light.

Coleman & Hogarth's collaborative practice places a special emphasis on the participatory and performative aspects of art practice. They work with video and more specifically light, as a malleable and transient material to create immersive installations and sculptural objects. Their performances extend the collaborative relationship further, with audience participation at times essential to their execution, bringing a degree of spontaneity and improvisation to staged events. Relationships between the artificial and the natural are an ongoing area of interest and in Glare this is investigated through an exploration of the performativity of people and technology.

The combination of props and projections in Glare suggest the set of a fashion shoot. By exposing the mechanics of production, the artists allow the exchange between camera and subject to be examined. Objects under the glare of the camera appear to 'perform' as attention is drawn to the supporting props disrupting the usual hierarchies that exist between, subject, camera and background.

The choreographed installation of projected videos explore a range of visual effects and processes achieved through the manipulation of mirrors, light, repetitive processes and movement. The artists playfully remind us that even in a seemingly controlled environment, chance, circumstance and interaction all have their part to play.

As with their performances, the exhibition features elements of both the prepared and the unpredicted - disclosure and concealment - allowing ideas and potential from both to emerge. The works circumspectly unravel the relationship between the camera, its subject and its maker through various techniques of disclosure.

Glare demonstrates Coleman & Hogarth's interest in the interplay between the controlled and the contrived to test if and where elements of either may reside.

Kim Coleman (born 1976, lives in London) and Jenny Hogarth (born 1979, lives in Edinburgh) have been working together since 2003. Coleman studied BA (Hons) Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art and graduated from the MA at Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2008. Hogarth studied BA (Hons) Sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art and graduates from the MFA at Glasgow School of Art this year. Recent solo exhibitions include Act Natural at Picture This, Bristol, Nought to Sixty (A performance with the Boyle Family) at ICA, London and Timebank at Associates, London.
