Field & Frame Screening with Bea Haut, Jenny Baines, & Laura Hindmarsh
SUNDAY October 21st @ MONO NO AWARE at 7pm-10pm
Join Mono No Aware in welcoming artist Bea Haut of Film in Process and Jenny Baines (both in person!) and the work of Laura Hindmarsh for a special Connectivity Through Cinema screening.
Present both before and behind the camera, Baines, Haut and Hindmarsh use film structures and materiality to map out subjectivities, landscapes and consequent interlacing dialogues. Activating places and spaces, this program rebounds with echoes and absorptions, the self and the body, drawing perimeters and crossing them.
Bea Haut has a DIY approach to analogue film and her works allude to perceptions of inter-related moments, spaces, and actions in between. During the 1990s she worked with Loophole Cinema; she has produced Analogue Recurring, a 16mm screening event in London, as well as co-founding Film in Process, which is an artist-run service for B/W 16mm processing in the UK. She shows her films internationally and teaches at University in London.
Jenny Baines is an artist working predominantly with 16mm film. She performs repeated, often absurd actions for the camera, pushing the limitations of the mechanism and her own physical endurance. Her looped and double-screen films explore the out-of-frame as a space of potential for continued action.
Laura Hindmarsh lives and works between Cambridge, London and Australia. Working across the disciplines of drawing, performance, photography and film her practice interrogates mechanisms of image production to the point of exhaustion or collapse.
The Connectivity Through Cinema : Artist-In-Person Screening Series is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
