Breakfast with the Artist at FACT – Bernie Lubell

FACT, Screen 3
Price: £4.00/£3.00 (Members & concs)
With the launch of our new exhibition at FACT this Friday, you are invited to join us for breakfast with the artist, as Bernie Lubell discusses his work, ‘A Theory of Entanglement’ with Marta Braun from Ryerson University, a specialist in early cinema photography and visual anthropology.
Bernie has exhibited internationally including Ars Electonica in 2007 where he received the Award of Distinction for Interactive Art. This exhibition forms part of FACT’s year-long UNsustainable programme, debating the multiple issues currently facing the planet, as a response to Liverpool’s Year of the Environment.
Bernie takes particular inspiration from the work of French physiologist and chronophotographer Étienne-Jules Marey who was obsessed with understanding movement – and Marta Braun is superbly placed to provide an insight into Marey’s work. From horses and birds to human limbs and the heartbeat, Marey’s work was pioneering in cinematography, medical imaging, cardiology and aviation. After suffering cardio problems in 1995 Bernie adapted Marey’s pneumatic sensor technologies to explore the conflicted relationship we have with the machines we have become so dependent on.
