Two artistic filmmakers are brought together at the NewBridge Project space, with the collaboration Thin Air. Copenhagen’s Steffen Levring and Belfast’s Leah Millar set up their installations as a duo show with opposing screens, with the interaction exposing similar interests but different approaches to moving image.

Where their works meet through sound and image, they test the parameters within their practices, while also seeking to overcome the challenges faced as their separate films occupy the same space. Thin Air aims to be a way of understanding the practice of film-making, existing as a show which takes hallucination and the conjuring of new and perhaps unseen/unseeable images.

With the exhibition starting on Saturday 14th November, and a preview the day before, there’s lots to take in and time to do it, with the exhibition running right the way through until Saturday 16th January.

The duo work with extreme retinal and sonic scenarios, Levring explores the physical and technological limits of video and its direct relationship to sound and colour, and for Thin Air he is making new works for single and double projection. Alongside this, Millar presents a moving image work, where shadows and sculptures are the main players, as frames define a limbic in-between-space of experimentation and occasional glimmers of the unseeable. A text by Luke McCreadie will accompany the show, titled Bare Skinned Eyes.

Unique and interesting, this collaborative project will be something wholly original.

Thin Air is at NewBridge Project, Newcastle from Saturday 14th November until Saturday 16th January.
