“More and more my memory and experience of works is coloured by the places and the people with whom I encountered them. This screening brings together works that have been important to me over the last few years selected from places where I have lived for a time and where I have filmed myself. The screening features works from various countries interspersed with fragments from my ongoing project Untitled (Eyemo rolls) shot in these various countries since I began travelling with a Eyemo 35mm film camera in 2011. Each work is drawn from a particular geography but also blurs the line between them. The project is a way to think about entanglement – of the cinema as a locality between places.” – George Clark
