SHOCKWAVES: A FILM BY KASUMI | DEPTFORD CINEMA | 04.06.15
A masterpiece of contemporary media art.
Brain Wash presents Shockwaves by Kasumi at the newly opened Deptford Cinema.
Join us for a unique opportunity to see the UK premiere of media artist Kasumi's Shockwaves: a dazzling tour through over 25,000 public domain film samples, rotoscoped and live action film clips that, combined with stunning sound design, produces a darkly madcap, grotesque and transcendent exploration of the nature of memory and our collective consciousness. Not only that but the screening will be accompanied by a six screen instillation of moving image work designed by Kasumi which Brain Wash Premiered at the Land of Kings festival in Dalston earlier this year.
Kasumi, a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow, is a genuine polymath recognized worldwide for her accomplishments as a filmmaker, visual artist, musician, writer and performer. Her work has been screened worldwide: from Lincoln Center with The New York Philharmonic to performances with Grandmaster Flash. BREAKDOWN, the 2010 Vimeo Remix Award winner, premiered at Carnegie Hall with the American Composers Orchestra. She has created new works for the Cleveland Museum of Art, EMPAC (Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center), Instituto Superior de Arte del Teatro Colón, Buenos Aires, Württembergischen Kunstverein, Stuttgart; and her work also was featured at Art Miami, Art Palm Beach, unpainted Media Art Fair, Munich, Museum of Contemporary Art, Krakow, Contemporary Museum Wroclaw, Itau Cultural Center, Sao Paulo, The Butler Institute of American Art, The Museum of Fine Art, Houston, Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro, San Diego Museum of Art, Chroma Festival de Arte Audiovisual, Mexico, and many others.
Deptford cinema is fast emerging as a sweet spot for a uniquely independent cinema experience tailored to and curated by a fast growing underground film community starving for an alternative to the mainstream multiplexes.
