Paradise Yard Ensemble @ the ICA

On the 13th of January I will be performing with Paradise Yard at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, improvising a live score to live animation by Kim Noce, as part of the London Short Film Festival. "Supporting emerging artists moving image, With Teeth - LSFF's commissioning fund supported by Arts Council England - premieres three new experimental short AV works from Kim Noce, Zoe Aiano and Tash Tung, straddling ethnography, animation and structuralism, accompanied here by each artist’s influences and inspirations. PREMIERE: YOUR MOTHERS ARE MINE! dir. Kim Noce A beautifully realised animated work exploring the complexities of the mother-daughter relationship. + An experimental multimedia live performance with music by Paradise Yard Ensemble and projected live animation drawn by Noce, expanding the themes of the film through improvisation. PREMIERE: IMAM PESNU dir. Zoe Aiano A wild and delicate documentary peeling back the layers of a life spent communicating with the dead. + Further Work dir. Zoe Aiano, showcasing her talent for visual ethnography on the border between documentary and art, social practice and experimentation. Including exclusive character excerpts from Imam Pesnu; Beautiful and Strange and New (2014) and in progress project Krampus (2018). PREMIERE: UNKNOWN PLEASURE dir. Tash Tung A multi-screen fiction exploring the multiplicities of the image and female domesticity. + Light Reading dir. Lis Rhodes, 1978, an experimental work on 16mm exploring ”…the possibility of a new direction in film, not to be co-opted by an overriding definition.” – Peter Gidal"
