Castlefield Gallery presents PureScreen 5, ‘The Moon Will Save Our Ass’, a screening programme selected by Dave Griffiths in response to ‘The Goose Fair’ exhibition by Jacob Cartwright and Nick Jordan.
Restless, tragicomic beings interact with turbulent environments and uncertain destinations in this programme of short film and video. With references to popular culture, myth and geopolitics, the programme reflects Griffiths’ interest in the possibility of ‘landscape film’, and its relationship with post-human concepts and concerns.
International in scope, the works typify some contemporary methods in moving-image practice: filmic constructs, animation, found-footage remix, digital processing, and painterly approaches to framing and materials.
