Screenings from 7pm
Join Kelly Sweeney for an evening screening of her trilogy of short films: Colour Me Pink (2019), Colour Me White (2019) and Colour Me Blue (2014). A filmic invocation of her pantheon of supernatural entities take us on an otherworldly trip where the artist becomes the painted, the sculpted, the fetish, the summoned, the conjured and the seer. Seduced by all things transcendental, this is for Sweeney the realm of schizophrenic psychic harlequins, ethereal MDMA Medusa goddesses, orchid-clown hybrids and demonic balls.
With a personal introduction by the artist, the screening programme will be followed by an opportunity for informal Q&A from the audience.
