Please join us for Home Movies, a series of screenings of films by Jonas Mekas, Chantal Akerman, Moyra Davey and Agnès Varda from Wednesday 24– Saturday 27 April.

Home Movies includes works by experimental filmmakers which belong, in part, to a lineage and mode of home movies, film diaries and personal documentary. Each of these works reach beyond and toward each other, crossing time and threading evocations of memory, family, displacement and loss.

Luke Fowler presents GLYPHS (Tapes from Martin's Archive)
By Fowler/Karel (2017)

For this one-off performance, Luke Fowler presents rare material adapted from the work of late Canadian electroacoustic composer Martin Bartlett. The quadrophonic concert is comprised of new work produced entirely from the late composer’s unreleased and little-known reel to reels. The compositions were digitised by Fowler as part of his research process in making Electro-Pythagorus, one of two films in Passages. General admission, free entry.

Walking backwards
8 February–9 March 2019
Opening Thursday 7 February, 5.30pm

Sometimes, when I drive down the street from my house, I see a woman walking backwards down the footpath. The street she walks on is long and straight, but at the end there is a corner and I wonder how smoothly she walks around this. I imagine she has done this many times and is now able to move backwards without looking behind her.
