Jenny Baines practice finds its form though the relationship between her body and the mechanisms of film. She performs actions for a wind-up 16mm Bolex camera exploring the parameters of the apparatus and her own physical endurance.
Amy Dickson works with available technology, such as mobile phones, and her performances are site and time specific. These para-cinematic events consider light, duration and place, and often draw on her textile background. She also co-founded the artist collective Collective-iz.
Billy Steiger is an artist whose practice encompasses sound, performance, painting, video, print, and the borders in between.
Bea Haut’s work relates ‘everyday’ moments, spaces and actions, often in absurd and unexpected ways. She positions analogue film as a material with distinct agency and the trace and form of its processes defines her practice. She was one of the co-founders of Loophole Cinema and Analogue Recurring.
Annabel Nicolson was a key member of the London Film Maker’s Co-op and a founder member of Circles. Her film works and performances have been seen at museums and galleries nationally and internationally.
