Simon PAYNE

new filmmaker


Nationality: english

Simon Payne's videos are predominantly orientated around hard-edged graphic planes and highly structured sequences that produce unexpected colour combinations and conflicts of form. There are often human and contingent elements in his work, which correspond with incidental glimpses or indications of the artist's hand, but predominantly they are systems orientated, involving the entirety of the screen and sometimes spilling over in illuminating ways. Payne's work has been shown in numerous venues including: Anthology Film Archives; the Ann Arbor, Edinburgh, London and Rotterdam film festivals; EMAF, Osnabrück; Pacific Film Archives; Media City; the Serpentine Gallery; the Whitechapel Gallery; Tate Britain and Tate Modern; and the Hermitage Museum St Petersburg. He has curated various film programmes and has also written widely on experimental film and video. He is Reader in Film and Media at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge and lives in London.
