Description

GUEST CURATOR: FRANCK GOHIER

To coincide with the solo exhibition of Franck Gohier’s work, we have invited the artist to select a number of documentaries, feature films and short films collections that explore some of the major themes in his work. Stylistically, many of the films share an aesthetic for a raw DIY cut-up style of editing including found footage, sampling media and imagery from popular culture, underground punk pop art and DIY culture. This collection reflects his artistic vision and influences.


1pm – Short film program

RIP: A REMIX MANIFESTO

2009 | 87 mins | Rated M | USA

Filmmaker and Web activist Brett Gaylor explores copyright issues in the information age in this documentary focusing on the controversy surrounding Girl Talk, a popular mash-up artist who takes existing songs and transforms them into something fresh and original. By the mere act of creating his popular, sample-based songs, Girl Talk has incurred the wrath of copyright lawyers across the world. While some celebrate Girl Talk as a true pop-culture innovator, others condemn him as a 21st Century media outlaw. But reality is never as simple as black and white, as viewers quickly discover through interviews.
