FILM FOCUS: SHEN XIN PRESENTS


Thursday 28 June

6pm – 8pm

Tickets £4, include a glass of wine or tea on arrival

This Thursday Late event has been curated by award-winning artist Shen Xin, to coincide with her current exhibition 'Sliced Units' at CFCCA.

 
The three films by Shen Xin featured in 'Sliced Units' use fictions to create new spaces for exploring emotive political issues. This event continues this theme with two films selected by Shen that use mythical narratives to address complex politics.
 
The films being screened are:
 
'Nightfall' by Anocha Suwichakornpong and Tulapop Saenjaroen
'And you will eat and be sated' by Sarai Kirchner
 
The screening will be followed by a Q and A with Shen Xin and Sarai Kirchner who will be discussing their practice in more detail.
 
There will also be the chance to see the open studio of our current artist in residence Keke Zhu.
 
Tickets are available on Eventbrite here
 
Or you can purchase your ticket at our shop.

 

 

Artist Residency: Keke Zhu


Keke Zhu

In Residence: 5 May to 1 July 2018

Open Studio: Thursday 28 June, 5.30pm - 8pm

Our current artist in residence has joined us from Birmingham City University for two months, where she is studying for her Masters in Contemporary Arts.

Keke's practice is mostly in oil painting, but she also experiments with different materials and found objects playing with different surfaces and textures.

Recently she has focused on capturing and exploring visually issues of mental health, and her artwork leans towards encouraging audiences to think in new ways about depression. This is a reflection of her personal life and people she has know with depression.

During her time with us Keke will be exploring her practice more and draw influence from her time in Manchester and at CFCCA, which will incorporate working alongside the artwork of Faye Wei Wei and Shen Xin. Her residency will culminate in an open studio event in which the public are invited to see what she has been working on. This takes place on Thursday 28 June from 5.30pm - 8pm.
