My Love Has an Exquisite Corpse: Elemental Film Exhibition

Running Time: All Day
Showing: 6th – 21st November, daily except weekends, 10am-5pm

Leeds College of Art hosts Cherry Kino’s exhibition of elemental film, including work made by students on Super 8 and 16mm. Playing with the idea of the ‘exquisite corpse’ where each person contributes a ‘body part’ to make a whole, film is treated as an organic form and literally subjected to the Taoist idea of the 5 elements of Chinese medicine – water, wood, fire, earth and metal – putting it through various processes such as ‘drowning’ (water), wrapping around trees (wood), burning (fire), burying (earth), and chemical processing to reveal the silver (metal) in the film emulsion itself.
Fri 6 – Sun 21, 12:00 – 17:00
Leeds College of Art, Blenheim Building café
