Conceptual Paradise: There Is a Place for Sophistication

conceptual NZ Film Archive
The fabulously energetic Mark Williams at the NZ Film Archive is poised to screen the documentary essay Conceptual Paradise: There Is a Place for Sophistication. Unfortunately this screening is in Wellington, NZ, not much good to us at present but maybe someone in the community will be spurred to show it! Hope so!

The film is directed by Stefan Römer traces out the debates that allowed the intellectual art movement of conceptual art to emerge in the 1960s, and which has subsequently led to the most relevant questions in contemporary art.
As Mark’s e-mail today said, it features some of the most interesting and dynamic artists and art theorists alive today, presenting a diversity of voices to show conceptual art as a socio-historical development of various movements; that it has no one valid definition. Yet there are several ideas that are framed throughout the documentary; the fiction and ideal of art as political engagement; the history of art as a history of struggles around strategies of representation, and, in making a film about conceptual art, the trope of reflexivity that produces a study on the documentary as a genre in itself.

Waiting To Turn Into Puzzles – film & music Wed 25 June 2008

An evening of music and film presented by Ensemble Offspring, Wed 25 June 2008 at the Chauvel, Paddington.

Waiting To Turn Into Puzzles is a new super 8 film work by Louise Curham featuring hand processed and hand-made film. Frames from the film have been scanned and printed, literally the ground for a new composition by Melbourne composer David Young for a performance by Sydney’s fabulous Ensemble Offspring.

‘WTTP is a cinematic experience with live music. Curham’s hand-processed, etched and looped super 8 films are simultaneously an intense visual experience and music notation for Ensemble Offspring. David Young ascribes a vocabulary of musical gestures to the textures, colours and shapes of the projections through a process of composition that explores the continuum between improvisation and notated music. David’s music has been likened to the ‘aural equivalent of seeing a world in a grain of sand’.

The evening commences with drinks in the Chauvel foyer with a screening of Bill Morrison’s ‘Light is Calling’ and is followed by more drinks in the Chauvel foyer.
