28 April 2005 - 4 June 2005
Opening Reception 28 April 2005 8pm
Ann Course‘s playful silk-screen prints and silicon sculptures are imbued with a sense of personal recollection and recurring motifs. Since 1993 Course has collaborated with Paul Clark to produce a series of psychologically piercing short animations. Constructed from drawings on paper that are passed under a rostrum camera with a specially mounted lens, the films are mostly edited ‘in-camera’ thus avoiding lavish post-production. The speed at which the two produce their animations (sometimes in a matter of hours) encourages a sense of raw energy and playfulness.
Ann Course’s exhibition was generously supported by Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London and The British Council.
Ann Course, born in 1965, lives and works in London. Her work has been seen in group exhibitions and film festivals internationally, including A Century of Artists Film in Britain, Tate Britain (2003-04), Art Now Lightbox, Tate Britain (2003) and Other Than Film, Rotterdam Film Festival (2003).
