Sue Tompkins and Luke Fowler, Country Grammar, UK, 2003-2017, 20’ (German Premiere)
Based upon the text written for Sue Tompkins’s first and never repeated solo performance, this special collaboration between the two Glasgow based artists has produced a new film shot by Luke Fowler on 16mm film featuring spoken word fragments by Tompkins . The film is comprised of fleeting and spontaneous material shot in summer 2017 - at a recording studio, in public gardens, at home and around the streets where the artists' live. It introduces a new project by the British performer, which invites filmmakers and artists to respond with their own visual material to her historical audio work and performance pieces. The sound and image are combined through the editing, bringing new associations and meanings to the original text.
Luke Fowler, Electro-Pythagorus: A Portrait of Martin Bartlett, UK/Can, 2017, 16mm transferred to HD, 45’
With his last film, Luke Fowler pays tribute to the work and musical ideas of Martin Bartlett (1939–93), a proudly gay Canadian composer who during the 1970s and 1980s pioneered the use of the ‘microcomputer’. The life and work of the highly influential, yet little known, composer “is resurrected in this lovingly constructed biographical essay. Archival footage finds Bartlett at home, at work, and onstage,ga while voiceover readings of the proudly out artist’s reflections on his place in the era’s gay community convey a sense of intimate, holistic personal history.” (NY Film Festival)
Followed by a Q&A with the artists and the curator. Both the performance and the films will be in English.
