no.w.here launches Light Reading Series 8 with artists from the 2007 Further 3 Residency. Oliver Bancroft, Lara Saxby- Soria and James Richards will be showing extracts of their work to date and sharing the development in their thinking during their residency.
Further is a joint project between Artquest, no.w.here, and Film London's Artists' Moving Image Network, which provides artists with the chance to develop their practice with full access to no.w.here training, facilities, and support.
Lara's practice embraces a cross disciplinary approach which includes photography, installation and most predominantly video installation, though there is always a sculptural element to her work. Her installations attempt to engage the medium of film with ephemeral materials such as sand and water to explore notions of exposure, vulnerability and illusion.
Oliver works in a variety of media including film, painting and photography. During his residency Oliver will be working on a butterfly film, Apatura Iris
, 'exploring filmmaking as alchemy for the reanimation of moments and memories'.
James works as an editor on music videos and fashion projects. During his residency James intended to use 16mm and Super 8 to move away from sampling / remixing processes, setting up and filming cinematic situations while exploring the live and sculptural potential of film and projection equipment.
