STRANGELOVE: Lead curator Philippa Wall.

STRANGELOVE is an ‘International time based arts fair’ which starts next week on Thursday March 9th in Folkestone. Over the next few days we will be talking to some of the people involved in the fair.
Up next we have lead curator of the festival Philippa Wall.

1. What will you be showing at Strangelove Festival in March?

I will be showing an Installation as part of the exhibition Sight and Sound – my installation presents a process onto 16mm film alongside the digital sounds created during this.

2. What mediums do you work with?

I work mainly with 16mm film and the optical sounds that are created through this process.

3. How do you know when you have completed a work?

I don’t think I ever completed a work

4. How important is the presentation of your work and viewer engagement?

My practice is entirely process led, the end result and what is exhibited is often not the most important part and is often a documentation. I wish to question which stage the viewer engages with my work and vary this within my upcoming projects.

5. If you could choose to show your artwork in a non traditional art setting, where would that be?

I would always choose a non-traditional art setting as a preference. It allows for a greater challenge and dialogue with the location.

6. With the increasing evolution of technology, where do you see film in the next ten years?

In the next ten years I see film sitting within the greatest position it has ever been in – with the ability to combine the potential of both digital and analogue I think the output will be remarkable.

7. If you could create a time based arts compilation, what would be on it?

As curator of Strangelove 2017 I hope I have done this as the festival – a real mix of experimental and developed concepts that have been presented in all forms.
