From an ox to an egg
Artist Anna Lucas curates From an ox to an egg, an event including a performance towards the making of a new film, Yolk (2017) by Keira Greene, and screening of Diviner (2017), a film by Frances Scott.
Yolk (2017) explores human attempts to understand and communicate the actuality, meaning and implication of deep time and its relation to the temporal experience and physicality of the moving human body. Diviner (2017) is structured as a visual and aural script, formed almost entirely from moving image material held in the South West Film and Television Archives. The work proposes histories that inflect upon the present, as spectral, contemporary scribes. The performance and screening will be followed by both artists discussing their processes of expanded production, the intersections between their practices, and how artists might act as a conduit for ideas. The event will be underscored by Live Collage, an evolving resource of text and image material selected by Anna Lucas and Frances Scott, on loan from De Montfort University library.
Little City Studio is a day-long festival of films, discussions and performances exploring process, production and performance in artists moving image from the perspective of provincial urban centres like Leicester in conjunction with the ICA’s Art and Screen Network Programme.
From an ox to an egg forms part of the ‘Moving Image Day: Little City Studio‘ at the Phoenix during Leicester Art Week.
Yolk incorporates an architectural collaboration with artist Tim Mitchell.
Diviner was created for the Peninsula Arts Film Commission 2017, a partnership between Peninsula Arts at Plymouth University, the South West Film and Television Archive and The Box, Plymouth.
