THICK CINEMA Trailer (London Screening)
Whitechapel Gallery, London
7pm Thursday 3 May
Curated by Mercedes Vicente and commissioned by CIRCUIT, Thick Cinema presents five new works by Fiona Amundsen, John Di Stefano, Sam Hamilton, Kim Pieters and Joyce Campbell. Each artist was invited to make a short work exploring the role of the body and sensorial experience in cinema. Shot in New Zealand, Japan, USA and Italy, the works in Thick Cinema engage variously with the legacy of fascism, the sexual union of eels, public gardens, the sunset and memory.
The screening will be followed by a discussion between UK curator George Clark and CIRCUIT's New Zealand Director Mark Williams.
