Joanna Jones, Helen Lindon & Clare Smith: 3 Films
saturday 21 september // 14:00
Since 2015 Joanna Jones, Helen Lindon, and Clare Smith have made collaborative artworks for SALT Festival including three commissioned films shot on location in Dover, Folkestone and Samphire Hoe. Six eyes see more than two -add to these cameras, mobile phones, recorders, and these collaborations add up to more than the sum of their parts. This is a chance to see all three films, including the premiere of Moon Talk, followed by a discussion with the artists.
The three artists have in common a practice with paint and ink that enables the medium to find its voice. What has brought them together is a shared interest in experimental processes to make synergic, truly collaborative work where each artist takes equal responsibility and results in work that could only have been achieved with the input of all three. The 3 films build on a collaborative approach begun in 2015 in which the artists worked together to create a large scale work on paper that incorporated the elements of wind and rain and would not have been possible without all three artists working together.
The 3 films expand the individual practices of the artists, bringing together experimental film, expanded cinema, painting, performance, drawing, sound, digital and material practice. The result is moving image born out of experimental processes, collaboratively edited to reflect concerns about climate change, coastal erosion, migration and movement of people, geological and human time and anything else the 3 turn their minds to in conversation and image.
