Selected 5: A lucky dip of early career artists’ film nominated by 2014 Jarman Award shortlisted artists
FACT Liverpool and venues nationally May-July 2015
Selected 5 presents the work of emerging UK-based film artists, including Lucy Beech, Tom Lock, Kate Cooper and Min-Wei Ting, in conversation with some of the artists themselves. Nominated by filmmakers shortlisted for the 2014 Film London Jarman Award – the accolade that recognises artists who are in our times what Derek Jarman was to his – Selected 5 represents what’s exciting, challenging and sometimes perplexing about artists’ film today.
This year’s Selected offering features a strong sense of commentary on contemporary culture. Kate Cooper’s Rigged explores the objectification of women and the increasing plasticisation of culture; whilst Lucy Beech’s Cannibals presents a satirical look at the cult of self help.
Selected is a collaboration between artists’ film platform videoclub and Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN). For full programme details visit: www.videoclub.org.uk
