The Moving Image Salon is a regular gathering for artists working in moving image and experimental filmmaking.
You are invited to join us at 2pm BST on Sat 4th September for a special online edition of the Moving Image Salon with featured guest artist Seán Vicary, who will present his work-in-progress Sitelines, a response to Alan Garner’s cult novel The Owl Service.
Seán Vicary is a Wales based artist whose work explores ideas of landscape (internal and external), the ‘natural’ world and our relationship with place. Active research is integral to his creative process, frequently using primary sources to shape his understanding and inform investigations of contemporary mythos. He often works place-sensitively; observing and collecting found objects and fragments of detritus, then manipulating these elements to create animated assemblages. These act as triggers for the viewer, sometimes suggestive of a wider narrative or hidden processes at play behind the visible.
For this session, Seán will present the work-in-progress Sitelines, a response to Alan Garner’s cult novel The Owl Service. He examines the novel’s idea of the upper Dyfi valley both as a charged ‘reservoir’ for unseen forces and also as a driver for Garner’s (and consequentially his own) creative process; the immersion of oneself in a landscape/place providing a conduit and the act of creation a channeling of those forces.
Free to attend but places are limited so book now to avoid disappointment!
Zoom links will be sent out on the morning of the event.
