Ronnie Close – Night Time Room

Ronnie Close, Night Time Room – screening and discussion

Picture This
Wednesday 10 March
Open from 6.30pm

Screening of Night Time Room starts at 7.30 followed by panel discussion with Chris Coppock, Director, Spike Island, Rod Dickinson, artist, and Ronnie Close. The panel will be chaired by Gary Thomas, Director, Animate Projects http://www.animateprojects.org/

Night Time Room is composed of transcripts of interviews with 1981 Irish Republican ex-Hunger Strikers from Northern Ireland. The character in the film is shaped by his political past operating at odds with the complexity of contemporary life. The film transforms the domesticity of his every day personal space to reveal more estranged meanings. These elements are interwoven to offer a personal insight and portrait of a political figure confined by his own past.

The film will be contextualized with footage of the original interviews and photography.

The New Cut is a programme of brief exhibitions at Picture This contextualising our programme through a wider overview of artists’ film and video practice.
