Zombie Line bikesgreendot

Still from ‘Zombie Line’. Shipsides and Beggs Projects, 2015.

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.

Alice Butler is a writer, film programmer and curator. She is co-director of aemi (Artist Experimental Moving Image), a Dublin-based initiative that supports and regularly exhibits artist & experimental moving image work in cinema or event-based settings.

5.30pm Sat 1 December 2018

Much of Garrett Carr’s work is rooted in place, landscape, mapping, topography and history, especially of Ulster. He is a mapmaker and has exhibited his work widely. His book The Rule of the Land (Faber & Faber 2017) is a non-fiction tour of Ireland’s border illustrated by his own maps.

Emma Campbell is an artist, activist, lapsed academic and Abortion Nerd®, all of which she throws into her practice. Learning from previous generations of feminist artists, she illuminates the structural inequalities that face abortion seekers and activists. As she regained her Belfast bearings this decade, she was welcomed into a fury of Feminists, Queers and Artists who join her in exposing the infected shaving rash of our twisted culture.
Emma has shown her work in Belfast, Dublin, Berlin, Stockholm, Prince Edward Island, Bangkok, Prince Town SA and London.
