COLLECTIVISM (PART 2)

13 April 2016 / 18:30 / Irish Film Institute
Featuring works by: Alex Tyson, Kelly Gallagher, Shinkan Tamaki, Rei Hayama, Ana Vaz

The second chapter in this three-part programme explores ideas around collectivism as they relate to contemporary practices through a wide-ranging selection of works which re-evaluate the current limits and potential of cinema as a political apparatus.  From the collage-works of Kelly Gallagher and Ana Vaz to the ‘crowd-sourced collectivism’ at play in Alex Tyson’s Mountain Fire Personnel, the collective is revealed as a​ complex and multifarious construction. For the artists and filmmakers featured here, the role of the collective ​now ​rests somewhere between the personal and the political, between the abstract and the figural.

COLLECTIVISM (PART 2) screens at IFI on April 13th at 6.30pm and features the following works:

Mountain Fire Personnel, Alex Tyson, 29 mins, 2015;
Pen Up The Pigs, Kelly Gallagher, 12 mins, 2014;
