PLATFORM centre for photographic + digital arts is pleased to announce the exhibition, At the corner, featuring new work from Irene Bindi (MB) and Aston Coles (MB) and curated by Collin Zipp (MB). Please join us at the opening reception Friday 30 January 2015 at 7PM. Artist talks will take place Saturday 07 February at 1PM. Both events are free and open to the public.
In the exhibition At the corner Bindi and Coles use collage and installation to reference screen based experiences that challenge and reinterpret the notion of the filmic. While the artists work independently, a similar cohesive theme emerges: the revision of the screen. Unifying their works is an expanded sense of how film can be defined. This exhibition explores an abstract picture of cinema, turned inside out and re-imagined as film without film.
