Here: Radical Animation Now
Jim Hollands & Patricide
28 September

7pm Here, Jim Hollands, 2007, 70mins followed by Patricide, live

This is one of the most important new videos to be made in the UK in recent years.
Its psychic 3D odyssey erases and re-inscribes Joe Orton’s rarely seen play The Erpingham Camp with a viral anti-narrative. Here transposes modern life into a structure drawn as much from the cut-ups of William Burroughs as it is from the psycho-social machinations of the internet and by doing so becomes video as radical communication.

The screening is immediately followed by a live performance by Patricide whose music and projections continue the video’s hallucinogenic dissolution between the screen and the viewer.

Interview in Umelec

There's an interview with me in this quarter's Umelec magazine, I'll post it up soon enough but I'd recommend buying a hard copy, it's a great read and they're good people who do good things.
