UnSpooling – Artists & Cinema, CornerhouseA series of fly-posters reconstructing Jean-Luc Godard’s infamous long take from Weekend; a remix of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and a guerrilla-style re-enactment of Luchino Visconti’s Death in Venice are just some of the things art lovers and cinema-goers alike may encounter as they explore the work of 20 artists dispersed throughout Cornerhouse and beyond. Celebrating 25 years of Cornerhouse and produced as part of AND (Abandon Normal Devices) Festival curators Andrew Bracey and Dave Griffiths present UnSpooling – Artists & Cinema, a large and ambitious group exhibition that straddles two giant bodies of reference – art and cinema – showing 20 international artists. Of note: Gebhard Sengmüller’s Slide Movie (2006). [contact]

Its the 20th anniversary of David Lynch’s epic vision of dystopian middle America – Twin Peaks, was the TV series that changed everything. Heros, Lost, and many others could only be made possible after the success of this surreal series. To celebrate this, Leeds based Artist/curator Micheale Spessa , Artist/ filmmaker Dave Lynch and Emma Bearman are programming a one off event at the architectural jewel known as Temple Works. Temple Work’s frontage is a direct copy of an Egyptian Temple in Edfu, Egypt. The main space used to be the largest room in the world upon construction by the eccentric victorian architect John Marshall. The organisers are not simply putting on an event with burlesque, film, theatre, acoustic, live music – they are creating a small piece of twin peaks where parts of the film will be relived by the people present and broadcast to TVs scattered in each of the venues, Black lodge, Roadhouse and One Eyed Jacks around the site to blur the boundaries between the real and surreal. We want to hear from anyone inspired by Twin Peaks and David Lynch…. Dowload proposal forms at the website
