The Voice and the Lens

Whitechapel Gallery 77-82 Whitechapel High Street, London, UK

I have 2 films screening next Sunday 15 June at the Whitechapel Gallery. In the 4pm slot but the ticket is for the whole afternoon. Films are The Cutty Wren (Phil Minton going wild with the trad. folk song, still above) and Ute on the Marshes where me and Ute Wassermann explore the acoustic under a bridge in Walthamstowe. There are some much more famous artists than me also featured. Check out the programme here -

The Voice and the Lens is a festival exploring the treasures of the human voice, conjured up for our eyes through film and performance. Over three days, the programme features works by 55 artists, musicians and film-makers, ranging from classics to recent and brand new works.

For the festival finale, the Whitechapel Gallery hosts an afternoon of films and performances by 20 artists. Highlights include: Bill Viola’s Anthem; Bruce McLean and Adam de la Cour’s Drumstick; Anri Sala’s Answer Me; Robert Ashley’s classic Atalanta Strategy; recent work by Imogen Stidworthy, Helen Petts, Laure Prouvost and Lina Lapelyte; Mikhail Karikis and specially-made new work by AMAE and Pier Giorgio De Pinto with philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy.

The relationship between the voice and the camera is a filter through which we explore a number of linked ideas, in particular: sound and image; original and copy; liveness and mediation; presence and absence. And it ultimately stages the relationship between different ways of experiencing and constructing individual and collective self-identities.
