The aim of this collaboration is to integrate Becky’s idea’s of the dialogue of video art between institutions in Leeds, and Jaclyne concepts of event scores, random happenings and events in an exploration to find the middle ground which with shed light on not only the art being created in leeds but also the juxtaposing of two very different ways of presenting work to an audience.
We aim to do this by integrating Becky’s project, ‘video and the artist’ and an upcoming event at the arts market, an open call video project open to the three institutions of Leeds college of art, Leeds university and leeds metropolitan.
This event will be a one day event split in to three, two hour show reels, from each institution- at the end of each two hour period two artists from the show reel will speak about there work in an attempt to explore the dialogue of video art in a wider context
In contrast to the one day event which will be promoted from inside the institution, we will also put on a separate outside cinema experience, using the same show reel, we will take it out of the institution and place it in a completely different context, using only guerrilla art style advertising to promote a One night ‘outside’ film screening experience in leeds.
Another key aspect of our interest and why we have planned to do this events is that both of our work relies heavily on audience reaction and how the audience perceive work, by changing how we show the films we are also, maybe changing our audience which will enable us to see how far the audience reaction is key to the exhibition of our work.
From this we will be able to directly link areas of interest in each of our practices, as well as explore our joint interest in cur ration.
Another interesting aspect which we would like to explore the fact that we as a partnership work well in terms of organizing an event (as we found out during the preparation for the A4 exhibition) we have a shared sense of dealing with problems and also the same eye for detail, we hope that in exploring this aspect of our practices in may not only help prepare for the final major show but future events.
In order to pull these events of with a sembalence of professionalism we plan to set time aside each week
