LUCID STREAMING is a collection of new moving image work exploring political, cultural, historical, and mythological themes through surreal, dream-like imagery from artists in the US, Canada and Europe.
Jonathan Monaghan (US), Rainbow Narcosis. A 3D animation following a headless lamb through a series of otherworldly environments.
Marko Schiefelbein (Germany), I can. You can. A woman speaks directly to camera, a tangled declaration of ideals all phrases scraped from advertisements.
Ellen Wetmore (US), Collective Invention. What would that grand Rene Magritte inverted mermaid painting look like as a performance with a real woman on a real beach and one real, dead smelly fish?
Marcantonio Lunardi (Italy), Default. A man sits at a desk with a phone in an abandoned factory, on hold.
Jean-Guillaume Bastien (Canada), Déjà-vu. A collection of dream-like images, five women share a sense of déjà-vu.
Francesca Lolli (Italy), Abaddon. Explores themes of race, gender, nationality, and sexuality against the backdrop of the Irish Trouble in a disorienting ensemble performance.
David Jacques (UK), The Irlam House Bequest. In the style of a developing documentary, a series of drawings describes a fictitious collective; an anonymous politico-cultural entity.
