Lucy Clout: Work in Progress

Join Berwick Visual Arts Artist-in-Residence Lucy Clout at the Mule on Rouge on Bridge Street to see a number of her recent films and discuss her upcoming exhibition at this years Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival.

At the midpoint of her six-month residency Lucy Clout will present a screening of previous works which explore themes of loneliness, intimacy and kinship.  

The Extra’s Ever-Moving Lips, 2014, 8 mins 
Two forensic lip-readers attempt to transcribe the words an extra’s speaks in the background of an Australian soap opera. The video asks what happens when speech created primarily as a disposable language of kinship, comfort and context is preserved and available for re-watching and interpretation.

Warm Bath, 2016, 11 mins
The video begins as an investigation into the desire to record the unremarkable passing of time and becomes a looking-based experiment in permanence, place, leaky systems and intimacy. Warm Bath documents structures by which people maintain themselves – physically, socially and via repetition/routine.


Lucy is creating a new body of work which will feature in an exhibition at The Gymnasium Gallery during Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival 2018.
 
Lucy Clout works primarily in video. She studied at Goldsmiths London, and The Royal College of Art. Recent exhibitions include Jerwood Space, London, CCA, Glasgow (2015) and Limoncello, London (2016). Recent screenings include Raven Row, Tate Britain and Anthology Film Archives, New York (all 2017). Lucy was awarded the Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella award in 2015.

Light refreshments, soft drinks and wine will be served.
