Details

Simon Payne has been committed to making abstract cinema for twenty years. His work is predominantly orientated around bold graphic forms and highly structured sequences that produce unexpected colour combinations and conflicting planes. Sometimes there are contingent elements in the videos, which correspond with incidental indications of the artist’s hand, but his approach to cinema is primarily objective. The systems that underpin the videos here involve the entirety of the screen and every edge, while the effect of these systems often spill out of the screen, to illuminate the cinema in remarkable ways.

This DVD ontains: 

Cut Out involves coloured cards with apertures and subtle superimpositions that produce variable planes and edges. NOT AND OR invokes two types of screen space: a wholly ‘virtual’ space and the real surface of a reflimed screen, a difference that is blurred by subsequent transformations. Set Theory I-IV and Edges are two new series. Each part of Set Theory combines graphic transitions in unique combinations to transform the screen. Edges involves pieces that focus on the borders of the screen. Point Line Plane, an earlier piece, chimes with Dziga Vertov’s exaltation: ‘Hurrah for dynamic geometry, the race of points, lines, planes, volumes!’

 

Simon Payne’s work has been shown in numerous international film festivals and galleries including: Anthology Film Archives, New York; Pacific Film Archives, San Francisco; the Ann Arbor, Edinburgh, London and Rotterdam film festivals; Media City Festival, Windsor, Ontario; the Serpentine Gallery and Whitechapel Gallery in London; Tate Britain and Tate Modern and the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg. He has also written widely on experimental film and video and is a Reader in Film and Media at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.
