BRISTOL EXPERIMENTAL EXPANDED FILM (BEEF)
I am one of the founding members of BEEF , contributing to the development of the collective, the organisation, it's activities and programmes.
BEEF is a film and sound collective supporting experimental practice in Bristol. BEEF provides an independent platform for artists’ production, distribution and critical engagement, often focusing on analogue practices. BEEF’s members are artists, curators and researchers organising a regular programme of events, exhibitions, film & sound workshops and screenings. Our current residence is at The Brunswick Club - a former working mens club, in cohabition with other Bristol artist-led collectives.
I have co/curated the following events:
> Women in Punk & No Wave Film & Music, (Jan 2018)
A day long event considers an alternative to the prevalent punk narrative and looks at how Punk created a new type of space for women and shaped alternative ways of looking and seeing, listening and hearing, speaking and shouting, dancing, dressing and protesting.
> Brunswick Light Ray Process, (Nov 2017)
An evening of durational and immersive sound, performance and installation in action: the Brunswick Light-Ray Process was an early method of sound recording technology using a mirror, light rays and sound wave vibrations to record audio in a way that harmonizes with the optical soundtrack employed in photo-chemical film processes.
> Lori Goldston and Halftone with visuals by BEEF artists Laura Phillips and Melanie Clifford (May 2017)
An evening of ‘in the moment’ improv; music, visuals and records set in the improv venue of a former working men’s club.
