Film Lounge | Home and Other Fictions

Image Passage (Dead End) (1982) Doug Aubrey
3 Aug 2012 - 28 Oct 2012

Curated by Emile Shemilt, Stills' Film Lounge presents a selection of artists' film and video in response to the varied themes within James Casebere's series of works. The programme includes the first UK screening of Casebere's An Udder Orientation / A Film, made in 1979, and brings together artworks by Mineo Aayamaguchi, Doug Aubrey, George Barber, David Critchley, Claire Fowler, Jeanette Ginslov and Mike Stubbs. From received fantasies of the 'American Dream' to sober and provocative political musings, these works collectively explore the torment behind a notion that is 'America' and modern Western living.

Emile Shemilt is an artist, writer and curator. He studied at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, University of Oxford and received his PhD from the University of Dundee. He was the Research Assistant on the Arts and Humanities Research Council funded project REWIND| Artists’ Video in the 70s and 80s.
