Join artist Charlie Tweed as part of the UWE Fine Art / Art in the City series of lectures.
Charlie Tweed works mainly in film, performance and text to create works that propose new ways of living, new relationships between technology and ecology and new methods of escapism.
The films he creates are made up of found video footage which is reprocessed, re-animated, re-filmed and effected. In recent works he has begun to look at the material origins of media technologies and how every component within a black-boxed device has its origins within the soil.
In the talk at Arnolfini Tweed will present some of his recent films and texts, give a performative lecture titled ‘The Signal and the Rock’ (a proposal for a film) and talk about his new Wellcome Trust funded film ‘Un-encrypting Fear’ (part of Silent Signal recently awarded a Wellcome Trust Large Arts Grant curated by Animate Projects).
