AV Festival 12: Julien Maire
This is the first UK solo exhibition by leading international new media artist Julien Maire. Responding to the Festival theme of slowness, Maire creates his own cinematic machines often using obsolete technology, to reflect on memory and the passage of time.
Including work made since 1995 alongside new commissions the exhibition features low-resolution projections, high-voltage photographs with ten-hour exposures, live transmissions of disintegrating slow motion material and the slowly rotating flip of a coin.
Curated by AV Festival. UK Premiere. Supported by Northern Rock Foundation.
