NEW SPACES – Visual Artist Ireland 5.30-7.00pm 1st December 2018 Walled City Brewery, Ebrington Square & Parade Ground. Derry/Londonderry. Parked outside the Walled City Brewery for one night, this T5FC "frostbite" event comprised a show-reel screening and performative (with singing) presentation. Shipsides (in person) and Beggs (in virtual form) presented contextual and anecdotal material circulating around their film Zombie Line (2015), an open work which connects two key motifs - the bicycle wheel and the partition wire - both of which become connected to other works, motifs, periods and histories. The location provides a contextual resonance to many of the themes encountered in the screening event which will also the include recent Berwick Film Festival award winner Callum Hill’s Crowtrap (2018), Derry/Londonderry-based artist Conor McFeely’s Imperial City (2008) and Belfast-based Petra Dominova’s The Red Star is the Pulse of the Forest (2018). Dan Shipsides (based Belfast) and Neal Beggs (based Nantes) frequently work in partnership as Shipsides and Begg Projects. It is a mutually enriching relationship based on friendship, trust and the divergent unknowns each may bring to their projects. Alice Butler is a writer, film programmer and curator. She is co-director of aemi (Artist Experimental Moving Image), a Dublin-based initiative that supports and regularly exhibits artist & experimental moving image work in cinema or event-based settings. 5.30pm Sat 1 December 2018 The Walled City Brewery, Derry/Londonderry Dress for the weather.
