‘Suspended between appearing and disappearing, presence and absence, the legible and the illegible, the films showcased here explore perceptual limits and the spaces between. A gradually deteriorating VHS tape, fragments of old colour 16mm film stock, traces of memory, glimpses of light and shadow, forms emerging and dissolving – our attention is moved from the figurative to the abstract, finding focus and then losing it again.’

BEEF presents an evening of single and double-screen 16mm projections and live performances emphasizing bodily encounters, gestures and inscriptions. Acts of physical endurance are combined with explorations of space, place and the environment. The three artists engage in different but overlapping ways with the material and mechanical specificities of celluloid film, incorporating humour and absurdity. Expect bodies, bicycles, feet, and a participatory ‘living film loop’.

Black Box Shorts 1: In the Body of Technology
Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st June
This short experimental film programme reflects on the way technology dialogues with the body, creating a two-way process of transformation. Gestures and movements are broken down and analysed, destabilised and defamiliarised. The physicality of the body meets the material of film and digital, migrating through forms and layers and creating new perceptions and experiences. The screening ends with a live performative intervention that connects the filmmaker, the audience, the filmstrip and the projected image. [PG]

This is contemporary analogue film continuously redefining it’s self as durational and durable in the digital age.
Black Box Shorts 1: Placing Performance, Staging the Self – 22nd and 26th June
Expanding notions of performance though the material, the spatial, the personal and the relational.
Displaying a wide range of technical and conceptual approaches, the films in this programme question the role and nature of performance beyond the strictly theatrical. Not acting but acting out in ways that force us to see, experience and understand things differently. Here, performance sets up critical relations between people and places, and weaves a complex fabric of fluid and interchanging selves. What is performance and, most importantly, what isn’t?

The Dream that kicks: Film Doubled
Sunday 19th April – 6pm
Projectors invade the auditorium to reveal seven amazing double screen works – three seminal classics and four from the British new analogue wave. Interaction, juxtaposition, synchronization and repetition drive these films. The action here is not just happening on the filmstrips – it also belongs in the moment of projecting.

One night installation exhibition only
Australian artist Laura Hindmarsh and London based artist Bea Haut bring together two 16mm film based works featuring the artist embodied within the frame. Present and exposed, yet deceptive through the coupling of alterations in time and space, these works complicate human gestures and suggest a viewing experience perceptive of the form. Running for one night only as a looped gallery based installation on 16mm film.

One Hundred Foot II is the second gathering of filmmakers’ and artists’ 16mm films. As an industry standard, 100 feet of film (approximately 3 minutes) is the given length for a small spool of 16mm film. This given/standard/restraint has been used by artists in the past and remains a pertinent form/format for creating films. Utilizing this number, a film can be conjured up within the parameters of two distant but specific points – 0 and 100. In understanding that film, as opposed to digital, is measured in this tactile and physical form of length, the filmmaker/artist must address the issue of time through the measurement of a material length. For some, this constraint is seen as a time limit; for others, it becomes a finite amount of physical material in which to construct a work, similar to a sculptor’s material.

In 1983, Deke Dusinbeere stated in his programme notes for Avant-Garde British Landscape Films at the Tate, that – even when culturally and physically we are incapable of sharing the same view – we can all appreciate the ‘need to search for a new representation of the world, for new terms in which to envisage the future.’ * The artists in this programme continue this search, engaging and revealing through ‘light, colour, movement and texture’ * a diverse landscape with infinite ways of seeing it.
Artists include: Luke Aspell, Jenny Baines, Nick Collins, Chris Paul Daniels, Nicky Hamlyn, Bea Haut, Jamie Jenkinson, Jennifer Nightingale, Damien Monteau, Gareth Polmeer, Action Pyramid, John Smith and Sally Troughton.

Friday 6th December 2013
Projecting films on David Leister’s ‘portable’ 35mm Fumeo projector, this evening has been concocted to set a challenge to artists and filmmakers to experiment within the 35mm frame yet work outside of industry parameters. Continuing with an interest in celluloid film’s materiality and the performance of projection, Analogue Recurring would like to provoke DIY film technologies, help define contemporary artist’s analogue film production and confound the general view that analogue film is dead.’
MOTION IN FORM
Saturday 12th October 2013
A series of short exhibitions and performance events by seven artists that predominantly work with analogue film and installation. They will each install a new work, or new composition of works at the Project Space at various points from the months of July through to October 2013.
The remit is purely to explore the sculptural possibilities of film installation within the project space. This will be an opportunity for the artists to experiment with the methodologies and material of celluloid film and projected light, as well as the expanded cinematic qualities of film as performance and form.
A full listing of the artist’s information and event dates will be posted here: http://motioninform.tumblr.com

Emitters of Light No.W.Here Open Studio
Thursday 3th October, 6-9pm. 316-318 Bethnal Green Road, E2 0AG
Friday 4th to Sunday 6th, 11am-6pm.
no.w.here opens its laboratory and studio to reveal film installations and screenings of works made within the very space they are shown. Drawing upon an incredible body of work made by no.w.here’s members, moving image art will be installed and projected within the lab as an immersive experience.
These works combine digital technologies with a deep understanding and engagement with the material, mechanical and chemical nature of film. Continuously looping and playing, the works will be situated in relation to the machines in which they were made, drawing out an understanding of the capabilities of these ’emitters of light’ and bringing a deeper appreciation of the qualities of film as a vital and important contemporary material.
Artists: Karel Doing, Peter Gidal, Maria Anastassiou, Bea Haut, Jenny Baines, Vicky Smith, Oliver Bancroft, Patrick Beveridge and more!
