Zombie Line –Wheel and Wire.
T5 Field Cinema Screening.
NEW SPACES – Visual Artist Ireland
Shipsides and Beggs Projects and friends.
5.30-7.00pm Saturday 1st December 2018
Walled City Brewery, Ebrington Square & Parade Ground.
The T5 Field Cinema uses a converted T5 generation VW van to screen moving image works selected to respond to or inform the environment in which they are shown. Parked outside the Walled City Brewery for one night only, this T5FC “frostbite” event will comprise a show-reel screening and performative presentation. Shipsides (in person) and Beggs (in virtual form) will present contextual and anecdotal material circulating around their film Zombie Line (2015), an open work which connects two key motifs – the bicycle wheel and the partition wire – both of which become connected to other works, motifs, periods and histories.
The location provides a contextual resonance to many of the themes encountered in the screening event which will also the include recent Berwick Film Festival award winner Callum Hill’s Crowtrap (2018), Derry/Londonderry-based artist Conor McFeely’s Imperial City (2008) and Belfast-based Petra Dominova’s The Red Star is the Pulse of the Forest (2018).
Dan Shipsides (based Belfast) and Neal Beggs (based Nantes) frequently work in partnership as Shipsides and Begg Projects. It is a mutually enriching relationship based on friendship, trust and the divergent unknowns each may bring to their projects.
