Poster: Nicolas Ballet
With V. Vale and Marian Wallace
Tuesday, May 23, 2017 // 7.30pm // ACUD Studio
Cut-ups, analog tape loops, celluloid and fire. W.S. Burroughs and Kurt Kren. Performance art and direct animation. These are all part of the experimental films of Marian Wallace.
In the 1970s, before today’s global Noise-Music bands and festivals, a few avant-garde artists and groups began using the cut-up, sampling, subliminals, noise, musique concrète, films and video and more to provide immersive Black Humor concert experiences; documented in RE/Search’s Industrial Culture Handbook. Marian Wallace’s “Artists of the Industrial Scene” starts with an introduction by V. Vale and includes interviews with Mark Pauline (SRL), Johanna Went (Performance Artist), Genesis P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV), Jerry Casale (DEVO) and other ground-breaking punk/industrial/performance musicians and artists. This short-feature (51 min) is surrounded by experimental films from then and now, which utilize physical celluloid-altering, unorthodox analog audio techniques, offbeat narrative, and documentation of interesting and unique events and places.
Marian Wallace and V. Vale (founder of Search & Destroy and RE/Search) will appear in person for a Q&A at the end of the program.
RE/Search books and zines will be on sale on the night.
