The Douglas Hyde Gallery & Irish Film Institute
& aemi In Focus - Tamara Henderson
Wednesday, May 2, 2018, 6.30pm
This screening will be followed by a Q&A between Alice Butler and Daniel Fitzpatrick of aemi and Tamara Henderson.
To coincide with Seasons End: More Than Suitcases, Henderson's current exhibition at the Gallery, aemi have curated a screening of works featuring three recent 16mm films by the artist. Alongside those films are two additional 16mm films by Matthias Müller and sisters Ute & Detel Aurand.
All of these films challenge our assumptions about how materiality operates in cinema, from the repurposed footage in Matthias Müller’s dreamlike opus Alpsee to the playful interaction of colourful fabric with the natural environment in Ute & Detel Aurand’s Thread Games II and the costumed performances in Tamara Henderson’s most recent film, Seasons End: Out of Body.
