NIGHT OF THE BLACK MOON

shoreditch fringe

Gillian McIver and Studio75 present a vision of a magical world made of light, fantastical moving images playing over the walls and bricked up windows of a run down soon-to-be-demolished East London housing estate.

Housing estates often feature in film, especially British films, as a byword for social exclusion, poverty and dysfunctionally. NIGHT OF THE BLACK MOON turns this trope on its head and sets the film inside a run down housing estate, with the moving images projected directly onto the exterior walls. And instead of being all about “social problems” NIGHT OF THE BLACK MOON is all about fantasy, thrill, memory and desire.

NIGHT OF THE BLACK MOON features a show of intricate and stunning moving image work by a selection of artists:

PROSPERO'S LIBRARY | 29.04 - 01.05 2011

mciver tanbouli

“Prospero's Library” began as a project inspired by both the character of Prospero in Shakespeare’s The Tempest, and the film Prospero's Books by Peter Greenaway. Imagining Prospero's magical “library of everything” was the starting point for an exhibition that is ever-expanding and transforming, as different books and items are added to it, and it magically manifests itself in different places on the globe.

"rip it up, mash it up, stick it up!" | 14-18 2011

An exhibition of contemporary collage, and a screening of short film and video art. Creating art out of existing materials: ripping it up, reassembling and remaking can be political, and it can be poetic. "rip it up, mash it up, stick it up!" explores many aspects of the artworks that come about as a result of the process of re-assemblage, collaging, appropriation and remixing.

THE COCKFIGHT:

COMERFORD VS. TANBOULI | 17-20.03. 2011

cockfight In ancient Athens, the painter Zeuxis and his contemporary Parrhasius staged a contest to determine which of the two was the greater artist. When Zeuxis unveiled his painting of grapes, they appeared so luscious and inviting that birds flew down from the sky to peck at them. Zeuxis then asked Parrhasius to pull aside the curtain from his painting, only for Parrhasius to reveal the curtain itself was a painting. Zeuxis was forced to concede defeat. Zeuxis is rumoured to have said: 'I have deceived the birds, but Parrhasius has deceived Zeuxis.'

cTHE DRAUGHTSMAN
18 - 20 .02 2011

An exhibition of contemporary graphic drawing by four artists:Tom G. Adriani, Jonathan Comerford, Glenn Ibbitson and myself, Nazir Tanbouli.

For the four of us, graphic drawing is the very foundation of all of our artwork, I personally believe in graphic drawing as the great medium of communication with the general public, it's a very profound form of expression that deals with both spoken and unspoken gestures and emotions, Graphic drawing is often looked down at by many "establishments" who have got great interest in maintaining many elitist notions in relation to art and culture

But I believe that Graphic drawing is the bread and butter of creative communication. Therefore, this exhibition is an introduction for a series of events which will include these artists and many others in the near future.
