-[[http://www.edgeofframe.co.uk/​surface-memory/|Surface Memory]] ​is programme curated by Edge of Frame for London International Animation Festival 2019. A programme of five recent works at the intersection of animation, artists’ moving image and experimental film. Each of these films shares a concern with ideas of the surface in relation to the moving imagefrom the film negative to the computer screenthough each approaches the theme in markedly different ways. Covering considerable ground both geographically and formallythe works utilise film (Super8, 16mm and 35mm) and digital formats, often combining elements of the two to captivating effectBeyond their often quite startling formal qualities these works delve into rich personal and social historiesspiritual quests and conceptual enquiries. From Hackney to Hong Kong, and from entrancing flicker to meditative spaces, these works offer a dynamic vision ​of contemporary practice.+Screening as part of [[https://www.closeupfilmcentre.com/​film_programmes/​2019/​edge-of-frame-at-liaf/​surface-memory|Surface Memory]]a programme of five recent works at the intersection of animation, artists’ moving image and experimental film. Artists: Simon LiuRichard Forbes HamiltonKarissa HahnFrances Scott and Dirk De BruynCurated by Edwin RostronEdge of Frame.
