DISAPPEAR HERE - WEEK 3 - 3 X POETRY FILMS - EMILY WRIGHT & MARTIN GREEN
18 Artists - 27 poetry films exploring the Modernist Brutalist superstructure of Coventry ringroad!
Each week - we will screen online a set of three poetry films from each of the Disappear Here collaborative pairs over 9 weeks.
Emily Wright is a film maker based in Birmingham. Since finishing a degree in music composition in 2015 she has set up a film production company called Trapeze Film alongside Reuben Penny. She recently received an Arts Council England-funded commission to make a film for the Frontiers Festival and made an animation of the demolition of the old brutalist Birmingham Library. Brutalist architecture is a strong inspiration for her work as she is interested in drawing attention to anything unpopular and unloved.
Martin Green is committed to the routine and discipline of studio practice and how the resulting pieces interact with the exhibiting environment. His work explores joining sculpture, writing and performance together.
His current practice is about developing exhibitions through live-curation events where sculptural components are placed in direct response to the reading of collaged text that reflects themes developed through the process of producing the sculptures.
The current sculptural components are architectonic explorations of modern buildings and elevated road structures made with a range of found and donated urban materials.
