Central St Martins
Granary Building, 1 Granary Square, N1C 4AA London, United Kingdom
Held at Central St Martins' new Kings Cross building, this screening and performance event will address different spatial configurations in moving image work, using Andy Warhol’s 16mm double projection, Outer and Inner Space (1965), as a point of departure.
Leading the audience through various interior and exterior spaces around the college for a series of located screenings and performances, the event will foreground concepts of public gesture, private experience and architectural manifestations. The selected works will investigate the dialogue between embodied and screened environments, exploring tensions between filmic and affective realms, raising questions around identity in relation to space.
The programme is set to include:
- Outer and Inner Space (Andy Warhol, 1965)
- ...the traveller walking walking walking through... (Clare Gasson, 2010). Performance originally commissioned by Bridget Crone, Media Art Bath
- A Study of Relationships between Inner and Outer Space (David Lamelas, 1969)
- Face of An Other, projected performance by Sally Golding

Conversations at the Edge: Spin/Verso/Contour
An Evening with Hannes Schüpbach
Thursday, April 4 2013, 18h
Gene Siskel Film Center
164 N. State, Chicago, Illinois, USA
Hannes Schüpbach in person!
The films of renowned Swiss artist Hannes Schüpbach are lyrical, often transcendent portraits of people, spaces, and everyday life. A painter, performance artist, and expert on textile art, Schüpbach weaves together light, gesture, and a keen attentiveness to the material world into meticulously structured compositions. His films, notes curator Haden Guest, open onto “a multi-layered world, where superimpositions and reflections suggest the hidden depths of the places and people evoked within them.” For this program, he presents Spin/Verso/Contour (2001-2011), an affecting trilogy about his parents, and L’Atelier (2008), a portrait of an artist’s studio in Paris.
Organized with the support of SWISS FILMS–The Arts Council of Switzerland.
Hannes Schüpbach (b. 1965, Winterthur, Switzerland) is a painter, performance artist, filmmaker and curator of artists’ films. Schüpbach is best known for his 16mm films, which have been shown at the Kunstmuseum Winterthur; the Centre Pompidou; the Biennale de l’image en mouvement, Geneva; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; the Tate Modern, London; and the Harvard Film Archive, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
