Karel Doing: The films, performances and installations of Karel Doing (1965, Canberra, Australia) deal with elusive subjects such as music, rhythm, poetry, death, history and memory. He works together with composers, musicians, performers, and dancers. His films relate to the experimental film tradition and beyond. He combines documentary techniques, found footage and visual story telling resulting in a style of his own. He lives and works in Rotterdam and London. http://www.doingfilm.nl
Jenny Baines's artistic practice exists in various forms that are all intrinsically linked by hope and the possibility of failure. When making films Jenny performs repetitive actions for the camera, documenting herself carrying out apparently futile yet defiant physical feats. These actions can seem like a romantic response to, or an urge to escape from the space in which they are performed. The works are process based, using the limitations of the equipment or her own physical endurance as a basis and frame in which to be created. The performed action and it’s repetition, become an absurd attempt to achieve a pointless task.
Fari Bradley, a broadcast freelancer in London, has worked in radio since 2005, and on cultural events the world over. Her radio show Six Pillars to Persia is an immense, unfunded research project, documenting the hotchpotch that is Iran and the diaspora. Her small company Six Pillars promotes arts and culture outreach to Iran by collaboration with major international arts bodies. Fari DJs Middle Eastern glitchy electronica and experimental dance music on arts-radio station Resonance 104.4fm and is currently artist in residence on the no.w.here and Sound and Music Embedded residency programme.
