'Eric Bainbridge - Video Show'

Bainbridge, Eric (2011) 'Eric Bainbridge - Video Show'. Eric Bainbrige - Video Show, 21 Sep - 21 Oct 2011, CIRCA SCREEN, Atheneum St. Sunderland.

Item Type: Show/Exhibition


CIRCA Screen is a new venue dedicated to film and video.
A liminal space between gallery and cinema, Screen presents
a programme of single-screen artists’ film and video, promoting dialogue around the ways in which artists work with the moving image and the screen.

The exhibition Video Show is the first time Eric Bainbridge has shown his works in this medium as stand-alone projections presented in a cinematic context. Previously, these works have been presented as objects themselves, on gallery monitors amongst other three dimensional work. Whilst his three dimensional works are internationally renowned, Bainbridge’s videos remain a relatively unconsidered aspect of his extensive body of work. Bainbridge first began using video to document objects and incidents in the studio nearly twenty years ago, at a time when his entire way of working was changing dramatically.

The process of making video has played a key part in Bainbridge’s thirty-five year long career, marking a turning point between his fur-clad sculptures of the 1980s, and his experimental and increasingly complex work during the 1990s.

Bainbridge’s early videos use the static shot to show sculptural works in time; inviting us to look again at what a sculpture is and can be as well as thinking deeper about the act of looking.
n later videos, more incidental moments are captured with equal amounts of humour and philosophical play.
Eric Bainbridge In Conversation with Modern British Sculpture co-curator, and British Art Show 7 artist, Keith Wilson. The event is free, and takes place on the evening of 20 September.
