Please join me for the screening of three of my short video works followed by drinks in the Golden Age Bar, Surry Hills, Sydney on November 28th, 2019. Please register for a free ticket at

The actual screening time is from 5.45 to 6 p.m. The bar is open both before and after the screening.

The art process of remaking a work not in its original materiality but in another form is a way to understand the work in an intimate, temporally extended manner. The process of making by hand or machine can reveal different forms of understanding or knowledge implicit in the materiality of the form chosen. The process can also work as a form of veneration. The narrative of The Seventh Seal by Ingmar Bergman has here been reworked from the original film script into a series of three fairy-tales.

The fairy tales are located in the liminal space of transition as experienced by one patient as they are moved from one place or from one state to another.

Thanks to the Golden Age Cinema for the opportunity to show these videos in this amazing venue.
