VIDEO HOME SYSTEM at GLASGOW FILM FESTIVAL 2017
Thu 23 February 2017
Two boxers appear to merge in Christine Lucy Latimer’s Mosaic; bodies seize, fall and burn in Dance of Death; a blurry Bugs Bunny eludes us in Interlude (Homage to Bugs Bunny) by Chris Meigh Andrews, meanwhile Meesoo Lee brings us ‘video zines’ 15 years before YouTube. Home movies, TV shows, press conferences – images of personal expression, power and violence – are shown to degrade and transform, given new meaning by artists using VHS. 40 years after the VCR was released in the UK and USA, this selection shows how video has been and continues to be an exciting and creative medium.
Artist Mairead McClean will be present at this screening.
