Boobs / Excuses / Apprenticeship
online publication / awards / live screenings

My filmpoem, Boobs, is featured in online art and writing magazine, HAUS-A-REST, as part of its Issue 26 - Exhibition - Dada to Surrealism, where it sits alongside a selection of other contemporary works that in some way could be said to echo or refashion aspects of Dadaist / Surrealist methodology.

Boobs (and the collection of videos it is part of) are also the subject of an interview with Hastings Rocks Film Festival, where it won Best Micro Movie Award last May. Below: a photo of me receiving the award from Hammer Horror actress Madeline Smith and festival director, Dr James Rowlins.

Premium 00 Shadow 1080 x 1080
My filmpoem, Premium, also part of the Les Coffrets sequence collection, has been selected in the video art category for the Arte Laguna Prize Exhibition in Milan - which will run from 11 March - 16 April, 2023. As there were over 10,000 entries, being a Finalist for the Arte Laguna is no mean achievement and my piece - all 1 minute 23 seconds of it - will sit alongside an astounding international collection of artworks, with categories including paintings, sculpture, photography and performance. Premium will also be screened online during July at Dublin World Film Festival in Ontario, Canada, where it is a Semi-Finalist.
