CINEMA PARENTHÈSE and DAGVORM_CINEMA present

COLOURS & COLLABORATIONS by DEBORAH S. PHILLIPS, together with TOBIAS SCHMÜCKING in presence

COLOURS & COLLABORATIONS offers different layers and aspects to deal with cinematic and animated problems as well as pattern, textures and color developed in the dark room of the film strip itself in an active dialogue with music and sound. The program also includes the premiere of the 16mm, single 8 and slides performance VERDE VERMELHAR (Green turns Red, 2019).

I looked for films in which colors, textures, light and
time were more important than people and stories.
(Deborah S. Phillips)

DEBORAH S. PHILLIPS (de) is an artist who has been working on celluloid since the early nineties and various analogue media, including printmaking, tiny collages in slides frames as well as 35mm and 16mm film, drawing, handmade books, etc. She has been & still is active in several artists-run organisations. See: deborahsp.wordpress.com

TOBIAS SCHMÜCKING (de) is a filmmaker and musician. His analogue films explore the fields between experimental and narrative; in his musi,c he transforms fragments of melodies and chords into soundscapes. See: http://www.schmuecking.com

WOLFGANG IN DER WIESCHE (de) is an artist who works with a wide range of media (more than there’s space for here). See: https://xtendedline.wordpress.com

DAGVORM_CINEMA
Rue Paul Devaux 3, 1000 Bruxelles
Program start: 19:00
Date: May 7, 2019
Entrance: 6/4€

PROGRAM

INTRODUCTION (english) | Deborah S. Phillips and Tobias Schmücking

UNTITLED COLOURMATION | 1991–92 | 16mm | color | sound | 0’45 | Music: Wolfgang in der Wiesche
What happens when a painter is encouraged to make a film

SANTOOR | 1996 | 35 to 16mm | color | sound | 13’00 | Music: Nandkishor Muley & Wolfgang in der Wiesche
Nandkishor Muley moves between countries, musical styles and different fields. This is a commonality with Deborah: over a few years, he insisted that she make a film about him…

CAPSICUM | 2008 | 16mm | color | sound | 11’00 | Sound / Composition: Ruth Wiesenfeld | Music: Wolfgang in der Wiesche.
The associations vary widely when it comes to the colour red. This film marks the beginning of Deborah’s colour research

IM GRÜNEN BEREICH | 2017 | 16mm | color | sound | 13’50 | Sound: Wolfgang in der Wiesche & Ruth Wiesenfeld
If everything is alright in German, it’s in the green zone

TORNASOLADA SORORIDAD DADA | 2019 | 16mm | color | silent | 3’00 | by D. S. Phillips & Melina Pafundi
A collaborative exploration of the aesthetic of passing an object on and collaboratively manipulating developing chemicals…

VERDE VERMELHAR (Green turns Red) | 16mm & single 8 & slides | color | live & recorded sound | ca 20’00
At a meeting of analogue film artists, Bains argentiques in 2016, in Nantes, three colleagues Ж, Deborah & Tobias began to explore aspects of this complementary colour combination on a number of levels. The nature of language and misunderstanding through translation plays a crucial role.
Ж, who, among other things, came up with the title, can not be in Brussels because he lives & works in Brazil. He is, nonetheless, an essential part of this exploration of the dynamic of complementary contrasts.

Q&A

DAGVORM_CINEMA | dagvorm_cinema is a mini-cinema, made with little means but with bigger aspirations. Consisting of 22 comfortable chairs and a big screen, it’s temporally located on the 6th floor of the former headquarters of Actiris, a stonethrow away from the Bourse.

dagvorm_cinema is a place born out of a passion for cinema and an urge to share the films (food and music) we value with our close friends, lovers, aquaintances, future friends and people who are willing to discover. We’ll organise regular screenings ourselves, collaborate with other initiaves as much as possible.

(added June, 2019) excerpt from: Wild wonder inside and out at Alchemy 2019

New creative director Michael Pattison encouraged audiences to “embrace the strange” at this invigorating festival where the experiences counted for as much as the work.

Ben Nicholson

“Colour also played a significant role in one of the other ‘In Focus’ events – that of the work of Deborah S. Phillips. In a less conventional screening, Phillips presented her own work including her red-hued blend of collage, animation and text Capsicum (2008), and her overlaid, superimposed examination of green Im Grünen Bereich (2017). Phillips has spent a decade utilising found objects, natural materials and text to create colour studies. In the screening she revealed that she still hasn’t quite worked out how she feels about blue, and so the session opened up into a freeform discussion about the associations of the colour and how different languages approach it – all while two slide projectors clacked through cerulean compositions that slowly seemed to conform to the emotive qualities being described and discussed by the audience.”
