Archive material plays a central role within the work of artists Vicki Bennett and susan pui san lok, who both present film installations as part of the group exhibition Hit The Ground exhibition at the Hatton Gallery as part of this year’s Great North Run Cultural Programme.
Rebecca Shatwell, Director of AV Festival, will chair this talk at Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle with Vicki and susan as they discuss their latest works. Come along to find out more about how they have engaged with visual archives as part of their practices and receive a complimentary glass of wine.
This event also marks the launch of a new publication celebrating lok’s work Faster, Higher, published by Film and Video Umbrella, which features extensive visual documentation of this major multi-screen installation, alongside specially commissioned essays from critics Adrian Rifkin and Chris Berry.
Event presented in collaboration with Film and Video Umbrella.
