aemi (Alice Butler and Daniel Fitzpatrick)


Process | Event

Dates: 30 Oct - 04 Dec

Show Time: Various

Tickets: €6-8


Process | Event is a unique series of artist-led discursive screening events featuring Jenny Brady, Sarah Browne, Dennis McNulty and Tadhg O’Sullivan presented by aemi, an independent agency dedicated to the support and exhibition of artist & experimental moving image work.

As audiences we generally encounter a film or artwork after or at the point of its completion. Process | Event offers the rare opportunity to observe and engage with an artist’s thought process as it occurs, before the final form of what they are producing has been determined.

This programme comprises a series of collaborations between ‘aemi’ and four widely acclaimed Irish artists who work with the moving image. These events will be uniquely structured to give insight into the role of the artist or filmmaker as researcher, with each artist invited to select and present a screening programme that informs or reflects on ideas they are in the process of developing in relation to a new moving image work. The artists will adopt a variety of means to describe the relationship between the film works in the screening programme and their individual research processes, giving audiences the unique chance to respond to and participate in discussion led by the artists about their work.
