VERTIGOS

To coincide with Mark Lewis, Above and Below, Light Cone proposes a programme of experimental films and artists' films from its catalogue and various collections. Screenings revolve around three axes and build on the elements which Mark Lewis accentuates in his work: an interest in formal invention in film […], whether by pioneers, the avant-garde or Hollywood; rejection of cinema's narrative and temporal illusion; and a fascination with the purely visual aspects of film that play with our perception.

"Vertiginous" is perhaps one of the most fitting descriptions of certain of Mark Lewis' films. It applies equally to Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, in which the spectator travels outwards, from microcosm to macrocosm, and back. We experience the same dizzying sensation from the fifty-fourth floor of a glass tower in TD Centre, 54th Floor (Mark Lewis), from a drone flying over desert landscapes at the Mexican border in As The Coyote Flies (Adrian Missika), and from the sails of a windmill as they carry artist Erik Wesselo in a perilous performance. This same spinning sensation returns in the whirling spirals of Marcel Duchamp's Anemic Cinema and in Wheels by Gusmão and Paiva. This absence of sensory cues is central to the work of Ken Jacobs, who transforms a turn-of-the-century travel film into a spaced-out visual kaleidoscope. A fine tribute to Hitchcock's Vertigo…
