Light Reading are delighted to present a retrospective of Jayne Parker's films including some of the seminal tests of the British Avant-Garde. "Her themes the body, personal space, sexual identity link her to the contemporary visual arts as much as her eye for the oblique but sharp-edged connections. At the same time her language of gesture, her concept of the artist as performer and her use of metaphor also evoke the cinema of Cocteau and the later surrealists. But in some ways she goes further: ... her films are structures around the taught control of the medium and it's viewing space, to evoke a sense of contemporary classicism." Al Rees, A history of experimental film and video

Presented here in discussion with Al Rees, Parker will contextualise and screen work from her past and present.
