CHRIS BENNIE - FIVE FILMS OF FORTUITOUS FRIVOLOUS FERVENT

 

February 2012

S13/14 Grey Street South Bank

 

It’s our final show so let’s make it a ‘biggie’, I mean a ‘Bennie’!

 

This Saturday is The Wandering Room’s final show at Shop 13/14 on Grey Street at South Bank: Five Films of Fortuitous Frivolous Fervent by Chris Bennie.

 

This showreel of five new videos from artist, curator, academic and documentary filmmaker; Chris Bennie, are the result of his 3 week residence at The Wandering Room on Grey Street space, in which he sifted through over 150 hours’ worth of footage.

 

From the angry musings of the artist in his studio or the habitual scrounging of a Brush Turkey, Five Films… probes the effectiveness of time-based media to transcend both banality and spectacle. Presented as a series of single-channel videos projected onto a purposefully built screen, Five Films… utilises performance, representation and appropriation to communicate the complexity of experience.

 

Come down on Saturday the 18th of February to witness the screening of Bennie’s Five Films... in the spaces makeshift cinema. Also available at this exhibition closing event will be jaw-dropping jungle juices and a bodaciously beautiful banana cake!
