Artist Film Screening and Talk

Carlos Noronha Feio ‘Snow wall, will you show me the way to restart it all?’

Thursday 10 March / Screening starts at 6.30pm / Free, donations welcome. 

 

London based artist Carlos Noronha Feio has a diverse practice that includes actions, performance, video, drawing, painting, photography and installation as research into cultural, local and global identity. He frequently adopts culturally significant images, locations and symbols as a form of creative interference with meaning, and demonstrates the almost arbitrary nature in which cultural significance is adopted or interpreted.

 

‘A wall has a purpose, which is separate, divide, enclose, protect, secure, segregate. Here I finish the sentence with recent concrete examples: the Berlin wall, ghettos, concentration camps, refugee camps, walls built by the Israelis’, of which a new one has just been approved, this time to separate Israel and Eygpt. All these built with excuses relating to religious beliefs, political theories and concepts of civilization. A snow wall is ephemeral, it is gone with the coming of Spring, it is fragile, it is symbolic. ‘

 

The screening, which lasts around 40 minutes, will be preceded by an introduction by the artist.
