Extracts from the Diary + Work in Progress

Extracts from the Diary – Ian Breakwell
Breakwell was a prolific artist who worked with different media, including drawing, film, video, photography, installation, slide projection, sound, and words. His Diaries, made in collaboration with Anna Ridley, commissioned by Channel Four and broadcast in 1984, were observations of the ‘side events of daily life’. The Diaries were published as a book in 1986, and serialised
on Radio 3 in 1990. ‘The fact that painting had a thousand year old pedigree and video had none didn’t mean a thing. It was just another means of making things. It didn’t necessarily even have to be visual. A telephone could be used for making art, and radio certainly could. It was just another available tool.’
Work Currently in Progress – Brad Butler [30 mins]
Brad is currently in Karachi finishing his film and this screening is a unique invitation to the audience to suggest how you think the film should develop over the next few weeks. This discussion will be recorded and may be incorporated into the final film itself.
Brad Butler graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Documentary Filmmaking and also has a degree in Anthropology. In September 2000, he was the winner of the BBC2 Documentary Talent 2000 competition. Since 1998, he has been creating a body of work in collaboration with Karen Mirza and this ongoing dialogue about practice has manifested itself in artistic work presented in exhibitions, events and the cinema, and has resulted in the unique space www.no-w-here.org.uk. Brad’s most recent work is a return to issues raised in Anthropology having spent 10 years as an active participant in the ideas of experimental film. Brad’s new solo work, In Search of Structure is the first of a new body of work that brings together his experience in both fields.
