Film Studies: And Now My Voice Enters Your System, Louisa Fairclough
INDEX, Stroud

Preview: Friday 12 April 18:00 - 20:00

Opening hours: Saturday & Sunday, 11:00 - 16:00, weekdays by appointment

INDEX is delighted to present a new 16mm film installation – work in progress – by Louisa Fairclough.

Louisa Fairclough’s practice includes film, sound, drawing and performance. Her work addresses the materiality of film and is often poignant and personal.

From the projector a ribbon of film threads across the room and loops back to the machine. The filmstrip cuts through the space – a line of emotion, voice made material – the gallery becoming a poetic moment. In these works the projector rejects it’s principal function and refuses to emit image and instead the machines intone whispered, spoken and sung phrases – each loop a rumination.

Fairclough has worked once again with actor Nancy Trotter Landry and sound recordist George Richards using the voice as a key element in the work to transmit a powerful sonic register. The filmstrips slice through the gallery to create kinetic and audible drawings that resonate throughout the space.


1-7 April

Records of Garden Keeping, Sebastian Jefford

Friday 05 April 2013 – Saturday 20 April 2013
Preview: Thursday 4 April, 19:00 - 21:00
Opening hours: Thursday - Saturday, 12:00 - 17:00

Sebastian Jefford’s exhibition is the fourth instalment in the gallery's Regional Interference exhibition cycle, profiling the most exciting emerging artists working in the South West of England.

For Records of Garden Keeping, Jefford mixes references to ancient advice on the creation of Japanese Zen gardens with visual devices from the creation of catalogue images to create a meditation on our desire relationships with objects and the dance of anticipation and disappointment that is woven around this by the all pervading presence of digital imagery.
