ARTPROJX MATINEE PRESENTATIONS ‘My Philosophy’ a selection of films by David Blandy Monday 18th

Monday 18 May screening 1-1.45pm (doors open 12.45pm)
Introduced by David Gryn and David Blandy

“So, you’re a philosopher?
Yes, I think very deeply… (repeat and scratch)”
Excerpt from “My Philosophy”, Boogie Down Productions, Jive/RCA 1988

For “My Philosophy” David Blandy is bringing together a selection of his works from the past 8 years which explore the possiblility of finding ways to live your life in popular culture. Where do you find ideas to believe in if organised religion and philosophy seem irrelevent, if popular culture is the only authorititive voice you have access to? And with the commodity-centred nature of popular culture, can an individual’s relationship with it ever be straightforward?

Blandy seeks answers to life’s questions from Ben E. King, Bruce Lee, KRS-One and David Carradine. The programme will include “Samurai Story” (2008), in which Blandy tries to live by the code of the Samurai (as outlined in the Hagakure) in a Japanese garden in Cheshire, which features a soundtrack specifically written for it by English Dub legend Manasseh.
