Inside | Out presented by The Royal College Of Art
Tuesday 20 May, 6.45
Inside | Out explores the way lived experience is communicated and negotiated through film. By situating the viewer both Inside and Out of the frame, the series sets up a push/pull dynamic between filmmaker and audience, enabling both an immersive experience and a more detached, critical engagement. The first two screenings look at structures of power; where Navigations looks outwards to investigate the way urban structures condition and shape lived experience, Mediations directs its gaze inwards to examine the questionable relationship between artist filmmakers and their human subjects. Echoing this same internal/external relationship, the second set of screenings explores methods of cinematic communication. Where Introspections locates a feeling by considering the relationship between an inner state and an outer space, Transformations seeks to position the viewer within a shifting narrative, establishing a direct relation between artist and audience.
Introspections locates a feeling by considering the relationship between an inner state and an outer space. Collapsing and unfolding different times in different spaces, for each artist filmmaker, “it’s a feeling, not a place, but it feels like a place” – Thomas Ogden, Matrix of the Mind.
The screening will be followed by an informal Q&A with Tate Assembly Curator Andrew Vallance.
