Screening at Fondazione Giuliani
On 24th March, the British School at Rome presents the event “Catriona Gallagher in conversation with Léna Lewis-King and Luca Peretti: a dialogue and screening on experimental analogue filmmaking and eco-developing with plants” hosted by Fondazione Giuliani and curated by On Site.
Intertwining different areas of visual culture, from film to video, from photography to illustration, the relationship between analogue and digital is a central theme in contemporary moving image creation. The space of contact between analogue and digital opens up the infinite possibilities offered by the hybridisation of mediums and languages on the one hand, and reclaims the necessity of the preservation of analogue materials and technologies as a living source for contemporary creation on the other.
Catriona Gallagher and Léna Lewis-King, in conversation with Luca Peretti and the On Site team, will present their own research and artistic practices that explore, in different but assonant ways, the territories of transition between analogue and digital, the creation and re-signification of the archive, and the city of Rome in which they have lived and worked for a period of residence.
During the talk archive materials from the 16 mm medium will be screened, in addition to a selection of the artists’ projects.
We thank Graziano Schiano for the archival films.
