From Manchester's Castlefield Gallery
To be shown as part of Slack Video Presents : A Selection of Short Films for Your Viewing Pleasure (August 8th 2005)
PureScreen DVD *01
PureScreen is Castlefield Galleryís regular screening event for artistís film and video. The programme provides a platform for outstanding recent work and aims to support new and emerging practitioners and curators.
The films compiled on PureScreen DVD *01
were selected from the entire back catalogue of screened programmes, since PureScreenís original launch in March 2003. The films were not chosen with a specific curatorial remit in mind, other than to highlight some of the best examples of contemporary artistís film and video in the UK today. Consequently, many of the films also represent issues that have appeared prevalent within the medium of film and video in terms of artistic, cultural, social or political interests in recent years.
The PureScreen DVD *01
programme brings together recent work, from the UK and features artists: Steven Ball, Beagles & Ramsay, Charlotte Bernstein, Sarah Carne, The Cartwright Brothers, Lee Cavaliere, Gillian Dyson, Stephen Gray, Dave Griffiths & Nick Jordan, Riccardo Iacono, Karin Kihlberg, Oliver Lamb, Elizabeth McAlpine, Pil & Galia Kollectiv, Paul Rooney, Erica Scourti, Graeme Stonehouse, Naoko Takahashi and Patricia Walsh.
