HORROR FILM 1 : THIS SATURDAY 3PM
CCAS Gorman House Galleries
Saturday 28 June 3pm
Teaching and Learning Cinema (Lucas Ihlein and Louise Curham) presents the inaugural work-in-progress re-enactment of Malcolm Le Grice’s 1971 Expanded Cinema work Horror Film 1.
Re-enactments carried out by Teaching and Learning Cinema draw upon experimental film of the 1960s and 1970’s, bringing together conceptual art, cinema and performance. Horror Film 1 explores the physical and psychological play of body and shadows generated in the beams of three 16mm film projectors.
The live performer, naked with his back to the audience, begins near the screen and during the course of the performance, moves slowly backwards until he reaches the projectors. All the while, he makes a series of movements with his hands, arms, shoulders, seeming to feel the boundaries of the projected rectangles of light.
This re-enactment of Horror Film 1 will be accompanied by a discussion around ephemerality, documentation, archiving, and cups of tea.
