Save event

As part of Plymouth Art Weekender, The Arts Institute will be screening work by Richard Broomhall, winner of the Peninsula Arts Film Commission 2018 and by Chris Bailey and Ieuan Jones, recipients of the Peninsula Arts Film Commission 2018 Prize.

Richard Broomhall is an artist who works with film, installation and photography. He begins with coastal locations where subsea fibre optics make landfall, exploring how the infrastructure of fibre optic networks inscribe and intertwine the politics of corporate and national power into landscapes and citizens’ bodies. The work constitutes an ongoing study of the politics of light and the seemingly indelible electronic shadows they cast across the dreams of the human race

Bailey and Jones' film, 'Of Monsters', is a history in four movements. It takes the form of a series of news items made for an audience in an unknown post-revolutionary future. 'Of Monsters' is a satire that provokes discussion on nostalgia, reactionary narratives that have come about recently in both the US and the UK, the appropriation of history and FAKE NEWS.

“We have never been more surrounded by images and they have never been less reliable. How many truths can fiction tell? How many faces can one person wear?"
