Bodies in Space. Experimental 16mm cinema by Australian film artists Richard Tuohy & Dianna Barrie

16mm experimental collage films — a screening and discussion with internationally recognized Australian film artists Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie

These film works explore palpably different dark room and camera experimental techniques, yet together, reveal an abiding fascination: the movement of figures in cinematic space.  We see bodies engaged in cinematic ballets of competing and co-operating movements-within-movements giving rise to sums and differences, superimpositions and interferences and presenting through the paths they trace, a novel articulation of space.  On the screen, space emerges from bodies and bodies merge in space.
