How do we share, transfer and archive live art? The Stand-in Lab by Louise Curham and Lynn Loo explores this question through a series of collaborative investigations. Throughout the Lab, stand-in artists generate and test instructions to allow Loo’s experimental film event, Autumn Fog, to live on beyond her original performance of the work.
Stand-In Lab: Performance Series | Live in the PhotoAccess Huw Davies Gallery
Join Louise and her guests, Australian experimental cinema artists, as they develop the instructions for Lynn’s Autumn Fog through successive live performances. Visitors can track the evolution of the instructions–each new version will be displayed in the gallery and used as the basis for each successive performance.
Louise, Richard Tuohy of the Artist’ Film Workshop (Melb), Peter Humble of Workshop for Potential Cinema (Syd) and Robert Agostino of PhotoAccess (Canb) will test progress on the instructions by re-performing Loo’s Autumn Fog.
Learn more about 16mm film and expanded cinema through screenings of rarely seen works and a hands-on workshop.
Stand-In Lab: Schedule
Wednesday 26 June, 6-8pm, join invited artist, Richard Tuohy of the Artists Film Workshop (Melb), for a ‘How to use a 16mm film projector’ tutorial.
If you are a curator or producer, film buff or just a lover of old film technology, then this workshop is for you! Learn more about how 16mm film projectors work, how to lace them and project films and how to manage the audio and care for the 16mm films. Richard Tuohy of Nanolab and the Artists Film Workshop will talk you through everything you need to know. No experience necessary.
Who is Richard Tuouhy?
Richard Tuohy is one of the most active experimental film artists currently working on celluloid in Australia. His film ‘Iron-Wood’ won first prize (ex aequo) at ‘Abstracta 2009’ experimental film festival in Rome. His work is shown all over the world at some of the most prestigious film art forums such as Views from the Avant-Garde in the New York Film Festival. Yet he travels relatively incognito within Australia. Here he runs Nanolab – the specialist small gauge film processing laboratory. Richard makes a special contribution to the arts in Australia – he actively encourages other artists to work with cine film through his Artist Film Workshop initiative (see artistfilmworkshop.org).
