We are pleased to announce the tenth meeting of Afterall Film Club on Thursday 30 January 2014. Cerith Wyn Evans will introduce a film of his choice, which will be discussed following its full screening.
Cerith Wyn Evan’s conceptual practice incorporates a wide range of media, including installation, sculptures, photography, film and text. He began his career as a video and filmmaker making short, experimental films during the 1980s. Since the 1990s, his work could be characterised by its focus on language and perception, as well as its precise, conceptual clarity that is often developed out of the context of the exhibition site or its history. In a text for Afterall journal, Andreas Spiegl quotes Wyn Evans recalling that his ‘first films were “sculptures”, they documented stages - theatrical stages for instance - places that are conceived for particular forms of action. These were accompanied by interchangeable soundtracks.’ Reflecting that ‘while Wyn Evans is now regarded as an artist, his works are never without some connection to the world of film.’
Afterall Film Club is free and takes place six times a year at Central Saint Martins. The club has been chaired by Laura Mulvey, Dexter Dalwood, Mark Leckey, John Stezaker, Nina Power, Anne Tallentire, Stuart Brisley, Victor Burgin and Susan Hiller.
