Through a Different Lens/Film Work by Joanna Margaret Paul
"All my films, poems, paintings play more or less between inner and outer events" - Joanna Margaret Paul
Often shot and edited in camera, the film work of Joanna Margaret Paul (1955-2003) chronicled motherhood and domestic life (Task, Napkins), the worn traces of urban settlement (Port Chalmers Cycle), the persistent presence of the natural world and members of the women's movement in the 1970s. The programme contains 13 works shot in the 1970s that have been recently restored from 8mm and 16mm film to high definition video.
Through a Different Lens/Film Work by Joanna Margaret Paul is curated by British artist, curator and writer Peter Todd. In his accompanying essay Todd places her work in the lineage of film-makers Margaret Tait and Robert Bresson, and painter Frances Hodgkins.
This screening of Through a Different Lens/Film Work by Joanna Margaret Paul is presented in association with Old Hall Gigs.
