Torsten Lauschmann at Thinking Through Cinema

Attended a day long cinema-inspired art day at Tramway. Some of the work was fantastic, some wasn’t so good but yes it was worth it overall.

Here is some of the work that was on show, or work from the artists on show.

Tableaux

Here is the video which I made a while ago now, it was exhibited as part of the submissions exhibition.

Six performers were asked to spontaneously react to the titles of several works of art (ones which were sent up to GSA from Byam Shaw). The performers would then hold that pose until another title was called out. Six documenters were involved in documenting the scene. They used different media to document each pose with their own individual artistic license in video, photography and drawing.

The effect of the experience was like a conversation or dance between the two groups.

Royal Standard Liverpool

Please find enclosed some photos from the Royal Standard in Liverpool of the exhibition on show there

Unfortunately due to the harsh reality of the volunteer-based art world, there was noone there to open the gallery at the times specified when it was going to be open. So a journey partially wasted, although the Tate Liverpool and Bam Bam Bam were on which was quite exciting.

So yes.
