The In Response to the Archive screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the participating artists. The discussion will be an opportunity for artists to expand on their films and practice. We will also explore what it means to engage with the archive through contemporary filmmaking.
- The discussion will be hosted by artist and member of not/nowhere film co-operative Jennifer Martin. Jennifer lives and works in London, UK. Ongoing themes of her work include the performativity of belonging and the instability of images.
- Hope Strickland is a visual anthropologist from Manchester, UK. Her forthcoming projects are concerned with an experimental approach to exploring avenues for black agency within audio-visual media.
- Tamika Galanis is a documentarian and multimedia visual artist. A Bahamian native, Tamika’s work examines the complexities of living in a place shrouded in tourism’s ideal during the age of climate concerns.
- Onyeka Igwe is an artist and researcher working between cinema and installation. She is born and based in London, UK. In her non-fiction video work Onyeka uses dance, voice, archives, sound design and text to create structural ‘figure-of-eights’, a format that exposes a multiplicity of narratives.
This Q&A will be hosted on Zoom and the In Response to the Archive programme is available to watch online as part of the HOME Artist Film Weekender from Thu 3 Dec – Sun 6 Dec.
