OtherFilm : tour dates for Guy Sherwin and Lynn Loo + Ben Russell and Ben Rivers

OtherFilm, Brisbane Australia based film art collective presents UK artists Guy Sherwin and Lynn Loo's Australian / NZ tour 2008, and from the USA and UK, Ben Russell and Ben Rivers' Australian / NZ tour 2008. read more for details

Like a blast of cinematic conceptual art, film artist Guy Sherwin's hand-crafted films explore the elements of film's grain, tone, flicker, sound, light and space. Beautiful, enigmatic, and sensual, these experimental films question our perception of 'light moving in time.' Together with partner Lynn Loo, Guy creates cinematic environments of incredible purity and beauty. OtherFilm regulars will be familiar with the awesomeness of the London Filmmakers' Co-op, where Guy's filming began.

The Ben's will present visionary cinematic dispatches encompassing stark Cinemascope documentary, jungle surrealism, stroboscopic flicker psychedelia, children in frightening pseudo-tribal headgear, and More! Their shows in Australia include the incredible screening program 'We Can Not Exist In This World Alone' plus Ben Russell's expanded cinema extravaganza. http://www.dimeshow.com/

About Guy Sherwin:

I studied painting and began working with film in the 1970s. The
radical work of the London Film-Makers Co-op had a formative influence
on my practice. I’m interested in form, the ways we perceive visual
phenomena and film's relationship with time.

Each work can be seen as investigating an aspect of time through form.
At various stages my work has explored:

1. mechanisms of camera and projector.
2. methods of printing film.
3. live interaction between performer and film.
4. live performance with two or more projectors (sometimes including
musicians).
5. physical relationships between sound and image.
6. loop projection in gallery and other spaces.
7. digital re-working of film.

About Lynn Loo:

I made a transition from a music background to filmmaking in 1997.
Learnt about the experimental film genre from my studies at The School
of the Art Institute of Chicago. I describe my films as compositions
of images and sound that suggest narratives or convey an event without
text or words. Unfinished Symphony (2001) and Floating (2004) are
examples of that.

In 2004, I was introduced to films made from makers involved in the
London Filmmakers’ Co-op. Works specifically from the 70s. This has
influenced me which took my exploration in filmmaking to an
investigation of the celluloid and presenting works in a performance
element with multiple projectors. My first film from this is Vowels
(2005). Letterforms printed onto strips of film that would also
produce the soundtrack. Vowels is expanded to Vowels and Consonants in
collaboration with Guy Sherwin. Since 2005, I have been assisting and
collaborating with Sherwin in numerous film performances and projects.
I support myself working as a Film Archivist.
