Transit Arts is a nomadic programme of artists’ film, screened from the back of a van. For its third episode, the roving screen presents a selection of moving image work by Dorine Aguerre, Miles Joseph, Lucie Rachel, Jane Topping, and Josie Rae Turnbull. The screening events will be accompanied by the launch of a limited edition free publication.
With narrative film the dominant aesthetic, these artists choose a more transgressive approach: bending, rearranging, and rewriting the record. Momentarily, the screen becomes a palimpsest of ideas and images, stories overlaid and erased. Found footage is repurposed, the mise-en-scene dismantled, new realities are constructed, and old ones buried.
“Glance into the world just as though time were gone: and everything crooked will become straight to you.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, unpublished fragments dating to November 1882 – February 1883.
