Description

Details

"Artist filmmaker Stephen Connolly investigates cinema and representation through the cognitive mapping of place, politics and history. His work at the intersection of the personal and the social weaves journeys through spaces at the same time local and global. Accompanied with an open approach to speech and narration, his Spatial Cinema offers compelling visions of a contemporary and plural world." - LUX 

These films foreground the experiences of our surroundings and cinematic space, while engaging in singular aesthetic journeys of their own. Narratives of space are traced in this work, exploring material environments constructed as sites, by movement and habit, and the workings of finance and capital.

“Connolly is a filmmaker first, but also an artist and craftsman…from a ballet school in Cuba to tragic working class heroes – means his inquisitive, self-reflexive films take experimental cinema in new directions…” Vlastimir Sudar, Sight & Sound 

In the re-making of the work as a DVD/Blu-ray, the extras features of this format have been explored as a forum for dialogue and discussion. Given a free of hand and open brief, artists (Andrea Zimmerman; Miranda Pennell), academics (William Brown; Lars Bjorn) and critics (Jonathan Watts – booklet essay author) have contributed commentaries to expand on their encounter with the work.

  • The Reading Room | 3′, 2002
