Event description

Description

‘Skin is at once the most fragile of boundaries and the most stable of signifiers’

(Halberstam, 2006)

Just in time for Halloween…

The second night in the screening series POINT BODY explores subversion, transgression and eroticism in contemporary moving image and performance. POINT BODY takes an interest in queer readings of body horror in contemporary horror film, that whether knowingly or unknowingly, act to disrupt binary notions of gender and fixed identities through cinematic viscerality.

The programme will include moving image works by local and international artists, Cade, Adham Faramawy, Clio Barnard, Enrico Coccoza, Jasmine De Silva and Alice Shindelar.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The horror genre provides fertile ground for transmuting the human body into something ‘other’ or ‘deviant’. Loosely referencing filmmakers Cronenberg, Żuławski and Tsukamoto and theorists Halberstam and MacCormack POINT BODY focuses attention on viscous entities and bodily fluids, skin, flesh and suture, transhumanism, prosthetics, disembodiment and mutation.

Doors open at 8 pm. Free but ticketed, donations welcome!
