Visiting Artist Talk: Cathy Rogers
Artist Talks

The School of Music and Fine Art offers an exciting programme of talks from visiting artists, writers, filmmakers, curators and performers, with national and international profiles.  Previous speakers have included Lindsay Seers, Jeremy Deller, Oreet Ashery, Sonia Boyce, Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt and John Russell.

For the first Visiting Artist Talk of 2018, The School of Music and Fine Art is delighted to welcome Cathy Rogers - artist and co-programmer of Analogue Ensemble, a bi-monthly film night in Ramsgate. 

She will talk about her film practice and the contexts in which the work is made and shown; how Analogue Ensemble came about and her plans for 2018.  She will show examples of contemporary expanded film and those which could be considered paracinematic.

Cathy works with Super 8 and 16mm film within expanded cinema contexts and has recently completed a practice based MPhil at the Royal College of Art with Film Outside Cinema looking at Expanded Cinema and Paracinema. Her work has appeared in Sequence 2, published by, London, written about by Nicky Hamlyn in Medium Practices,  Public Journal, Issue 44, York University, 2010, Toronto and cited in A.L Rees essay Physical Optics: a return to the repressed, Millennium Film Journal, Fall 2013, New York. Recent installations and screenings include: Fieldwork II, Disruption RCA Kensington, Here and Now Horse Hospital London, Nightworks Testbed Battersea, Living Film Bethnal Green, Film|Performance|Space, Edinburgh, Assembly: A Survey of Recent Artists' Film and Video in Britain 2008-2013, Tate London, Dyad, Roomartspace London, Contact: A Festival of New Film and Video at Apiary Studios, Hackney and Black & Light, Supernormal Festival, 2017. Cathy has presented papers at Beside the Screen (Goldsmiths University), White Cube Dark Cube (Canterbury Christ Church University) and Screen Time/Screen Space (Annual Art Historian's Conference, 2014).

Cathy comments:

My background is site-specific interventions or what has latterly been called 'socially engaged practice' with a first degree in Public Art.  I'll discuss how my work has moved into film installations and screenings, working predominantly with analogue film and how site is still an inherent aspect of my practice.  I'm interested in making photographs on film which sometimes move and sometimes don't, ultimately questioning the ontology of the 'moving image'.
