SIMON PAYNE: SYSTEMS CINEMA IN COMPANY

Screening in the presence of the filmmaker

Simon Payne has been committed to making abstract cinema for twenty years. His videos are predominantly orientated around bold graphic forms and highly structured sequences that produce unexpected colour combinations and conflicting planes. Sometimes there are contingent elements in his work, which correspond with incidental indications of the artist’s hand, but his approach to cinema is primarily objective. The systems that underpin Simon Payne’s videos involve the entirety of the screen and every edge, while the effect of these systems often spill out of the screen, to illuminate the cinema in remarkable ways. This unique programme for Scratch Projections includes 16mm films by three friends and colleagues: Nicky Hamlyn, Neil Henderson and Jennifer Nightingale. Despite the difference in medium, there are several shared principles that span their work. Each of them sees explicit processes and time-based structures as the essence of cinema.
