videoclub : 2 // May 2006 – The Hanbury Ballroom

videoclub : 2 provided us with a few surprises, this screening of excellent films was only 14 minutes long, which had great contrasts and similes, particularly with their relationship to sound and image. George Barker, Nick Hornby and Hannah Ellul came to talk about their work, with guest facilitator (artist, writer and curator) Monica Ross, who explored and highlighted some thought-provoking links between the artists’ work.

videoclub : 3 // July 2006 – Brighton Fringe Basement

The Basement provided a great space for screening work, and the films worked brilliantly together – we had some stunning films submitted for this screening. Artists Semiconductor (Ruth Jarman and Joseph Gerhardt) and Sara Preibsch discussed their work with writer, curator and filmmaker, George Clark, who also put together notes on the event – click here to read more. The panel discussion was highly engaging and illuminating, revealing artists’ intentions and inspirations for their work.

videoclub : 4 // 28 Sept 2006 – Phoenix Gallery

Could we have squeezed more people into the Red Room at Phoenix? videoclub : 4 had a great turn out, and the work was due a good audience. As with all the screenings, videoclub : 4 had an eclectic mix, from computer game to hand-drawn animation, Super 8 and 16mm, and DV – demonstrating the multiplicity of film and video-making media along with high quality practice. Esther Harris, Minou Norouzi and Kagami Shinohara spoke insightfully and with engaging generosity about their work, with perceptive questions from panel leader, Mick Hartney.
