TAKE OUT YOUR EYES at the ICA

The White Review hosts an evening of short films at the ICA in association with LUX, including works by the artists and filmmakers LUKE FOWLER, BEATRICE GIBSON and GUY SHERWIN. The selected films present experimental approaches to the relationship between screen, score and sound. 



By linking 16mm footage with field recordings, the second chapter of Luke Fowler’s ‘A Grammar For Listening’ series revisits the methodologies of sound production employed in 1960s experimental cinema and sets up a radical proposal on the nature of our visual and aural perceptions of reality.

 

Beatrice Gibson’s ‘The Tiger’s Mind’ takes its name from a score by the composer Cornelius Cardew. An abstract murder mystery set in a brutalist villa, the film’s production emulates the improvisatory and collaborative processes that Cardew pioneered.

 

In Guy Sherwin’s iconic piece ‘Soundtrack’, railway tracks seen from a speeding train and the horizontal divisions of the frame create the synchronised soundtrack to the film. This version of the work, titled Soundtrack Augmented, will be presented by the artist on two 16mm projectors and accompanied by a live score performed by the musician and filmmaker Lynn Loo on electronic guitar.

 

Screenings will begin at 8.45pm. Join us in the ICA bar from 8pm.
