Electro Studios Project Space
Seaside Road, St Leonards-on-Sea, TN38 0AL.

Curated by Louise 
For details of this and other events in the series:

Guy Sherwin and Lynn Loo have been collaborating with expanded cinema since 2005. Their works often explore sounds made from light, using either light-sensitive microphones (that capture the fluctuations of light in the projector beam) or hand-made or photographed ‘optical’ sounds.
The work creates a clear distinction from the smooth predictability of DV projection and embraces film as material and projection as process - with all the glitchy sounds that film produces - the rough edges, the mechanical irregularities, the flare outs.
For Motion in Form the artists will create an improvisational performance of their films to include: CYCLES, VOWELS, AUTUMN FOG, MUSICAL STAIRS and BAY BRIDGE FROM EMBARCADERO.

Part 3 of Motion in Form presents

Zoe Brown

Friday May 31st is an installation combining a 16mm film, mono prints and film props to formulate her representation of a period of time in one edition of a local newspaper the Hastings Observer.  Zoë has used the weekly collection of haphazard tales and news items as an opportunity to explore character, plot, intrigue, redemption, ideas, and location. She has weaved these separate moments into a fictional narrative, creating a single story from the cacophony.

The narrative has become the story of a young boy who imagines creating a fantastical time machine. He encounters difficulties along the way but miraculous happenings and spiritual beings help him to realize his dream.

The film has been shot on various locations in the Hastings and St Leonard’s area on black and white 16mm film. This medium lends the film a romantic, nostalgic feel, which acts as a homage to early silent movies sequences as well as the simple charming redemptive storyline.

Motion in Form

The first in the series:

Oliver Bancroft presents an installation of multi-screen film projections and photography entitled EΛIONI.

A connection to history and narrative are recurring themes in Bancroft's work. His paintings enjoy and wrestle with the weight of art history, while his films engage with the passing moment to address what remains of the past. The subjects of his films are diverse; the travels of an island donkey, a carnivorous butterfly, a song and its singer, a physical encounter at a doctor's surgery. His enjoyment of analogue film has resulted in various forms of presenting film, from single-screen cinematic presentation to gallery and site-specific installations.

EΛIONI (El-ee-o-nee) is a body of work created through engaging with and responding to an olive grove on the Greek island of Aegina. This olive grove, said to be the oldest in Europe, is older than any archaeological remains found in Greek soil. An olive grove existence is completely dependent on people maintaining the trees for the cultivation of its fruit. Unlike the countries many ruins and remains it serves the same purpose now as it did then. The landscape has a 'biblical' presence, its monumental passage through time is present and at the same time incomprehensible. How can one relate to something so vast? The works are in attempts at making historic document, a topographical record of the Elioni olive grove.

‘The fair breeze blew, the white foam flew,

The furrow followed free;

We were the first that ever burst

Into that silent sea.’

(The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 1798)

 The programme explores our physical and spiritual relationship with the sea, from gazing at the distant horizon to the bodily motion of swimming, it also takes a dip into the darker aspects of total submergence.
