SBC Gallery of Contemporary Art, in association with LUX, presents The Short Form, a selection of short films drawn from the LUX archive compiled by the artists Sarah Pierce and Gerard Byrne.
The Short Form
Using simple search criteria of LUX’s film and video archive, the Dublin-based artists Sarah Pierce and Gerard Byrne chose an elemental, structural way of sifting through the inventory and of selecting films rather than sorting according to key words or themes, era, artists or genre.
The resultant program, The Short Form, presented at SBC, escapes the curatorial ‘thesis’ approach that typically bonds artworks, in order to think of the works as singular, detached, and irreconcilable. More
