I will be presenting two projects at the Tokyo Arts Club in the Palais de Tokyo on the 25th November as part of the launch of the Pavillon Neuflize OBC artist residency programme.

The projects I will be talking about are the Godot Machine and a new project in development, currently titled Spatial Cinema. Test videos from Spatial Cinema are here:

Residency at Palais de Tokyo

Palais de Tokyo

I am very happy to announce that I have been selected as artist-in-residence at the Palais de Tokyo. From November 2015 to June 2016, I will be living and working in Paris, producing work in collaboration with the Institut national de l’audiovisuel, Paris Opera, and the Seoul Museum of Art.

Every time I have visited the Palais de Tokyo in the past, I have been impressed by its daring, innovative approach to exhibitions and artisitc production. It is an honour and a privilige to be able to work in my favourite gallery! The work I produce will be a continuation of the past few years’ research into the absurd, machines and philosophy of technology.

The Pavillion studio

The Pavillon Nueflize OBC is a remarkable artist residency programme. Established by Ange Leccia in 2001, it is the research lab of the Palais de Tokyo. This year, six artists from around the world – Jean-Alain Corre, Hoël Duret, Lou Lim, Ayoung Kim, Alexis Gullier and myself – will be producing work from a studio within the heart of the Palais’ 1937 building.

Nybble video

I just realised I never posted about the making of the video for my Nybble project! It took a long time for me to get round to re-editing, since myriad other projects came up in the time after the event. The first cut was not great, and didn’t do justice to the excellent dancers who were involved, so I took a few days to re-cut the whole thing last year. This blog post is a quick breakdown of the elements of the final video.
