Osmosis UK (15)
New Artists Film and Video from Taiwan
Thu 01 Jan 1970
Taiwan, 80 mins, 2017
New artists’ film and video curated from Osmosis, Taiwan’s leading film, video and music festival. A varied collection of film and video by some of Taiwan’s cutting edge artists working with moving image and creative technology.
All the artists grew up in the digital era, and their works respond to an age obsessed with digital culture and imagery, creating dialogues between technology, film and video art.
The programme will contain a new commission by Taiwanese artist, Wu Chi-Yu, entitled Reading List. The film – made in three Malaysian cities – George Town, Tanah Merah and Kota Bharu. Wu Chi-Yu will interview local communities, documenting their reactions/interactions with books, articles and literature forbidden in northern Malaysia. Interviews will be with booksellers about the trading and trafficking of such books, underground reading networks, and investigations into books banned for relating to problematic racial and religious ideologies.
We will be joined for a Q&A with some of the participating artists from Taiwan.
