SUNSCREENING: NETWORKS is a contemporary screen-based culture program that features new screen-based works by a collection of artists from Queensland. In a ‘not to be missed’ one night only screening event on Saturday 9 February 2019, SUNSCREENING: NETWORKS weaves together the work of an array of artists whose practices are classified by collaboration and connectivity.
NETWORKS: LINES AND LIVES
Salvador Cantellano’s major projection mapping work will focus on the lines and lives that foster global networks. Ranging from mapping trajectories and connections via shapes and movement across different surfaces in the space, to mapping out the lives of people and populations through the documentation of faces that he captured at the UNESCO Youth Forum, Salvador’s work will present a compelling spatial network within the space where viewers can become intertwined with lives and light in an immersive screening environment.
NETWORKS: THE TENNIS GAME
A recently created collaborative work, this will be the first ever screening of this digitised 16mm film. Made in October 2018 at THE WALLS, The Tennis Game showcases the collaborative efforts of 15 artists and community members who participated in manually manipulating 16mm archival film over the span of a 3 hour workshop led by artist and filmmaker Barron Sherer from Obsolete Media Miami (Florida, USA). The film explores the historical context of camera-less film techniques and applies historical methods of abstract filmmaking through direct manipulation: scratching and puncturing, painting and drawing, and the chemical alteration of “found footage” emulsion. Whilst the works’ title plays on a reference to ‘networks’, the global exchange of the work from America (as archival material) to Australia (as workshop material) to America (as a 16mm film) to Austalia (as a digital file) and the collaborative nature of the final film honours the concept of Networks in the 2019 iteration of SUNSCREENING.
A curated selection of short solo works by the artists and filmmakers who participated in The Tennis Game. These individual works exhibit strong visual and conceptual connections to the two major screening works.
