Monday 20th February 2023, 6-8pm GMT
Please note, this event will contain explicit content and is recommended for over 18s only.
Artists Sidsel Meineche Hansen & Therese Henningsen will present an online screening of a selection of 4 short videos, each followed by a 10-15 minute dialogue. The event will then open up for audience engagement at the end. The discussion will explore challenges around the production of artworks in Computer-Generated Imagery, documentary video and stop-motion formats. The artists create videos exploring the role of surveillance in public life, cameras, control of our behaviour and activities in shared space, the limits of the private and public within digital and physical realms. This performative screening will launch the second chapter of Sensing Place, NN’s public realm and place-making programme happening across various Northampton sites throughout 2023.
There is no limit on attendees for the session. This screening and talk is a free online event open to everyone.
