aemi & VISUAL Carlow: Signals & Circuits

11 December 2020 / / VISUAL Carlow
11 December 2020 - 31 January 2021

Following recent C-19 announcements, we regret to announce that ‘Signals & Circuits’ at VISUAL Carlow is closed until further notice
_

aemi is thrilled that our 2020 Touring Programme ‘Signals & Circuits’ continues, in-real-life! Following on from the recent world premier at Cork International Film Festival, ‘Signals & Circuits’ is now on view at VISUAL, Carlow until 31 January 2021.

‘Signals & Circuits’ is a programme of contemporary moving image works by Irish and international artists Jenny Brady (IE), Jussi Eerola (FI), Laura Fitzgerald (IE), John Smith (UK), Deborah Stratman (USA) and Yoga For The Eyes (IE). The 6 films can now be experienced in the immersive environment of VISUAL’s Digital Gallery. Tickets can be pre-booked here

Taking the ‘circuit’, with all of its possible meanings, as a conceptual framework, the programme purposefully complicates interconnected ideas relating to communication, travel and technology, highlighting films in which intimate or ordinarily private thoughts are vocalised and acts of speaking or mis/over-hearing, particularly in recorded form, take on significances other than those originally intended. This gives rise in several instances to concerns about illicit societal control and surveillance but ultimately ‘Signals & Circuits’ emphasises the political and cultural value of speaking out, either to express an inner voice or strengthen the power of collective struggle.
