As an ongoing series of unique and experimental events, Video Jam has constantly been trying to explore the relationship between film and live sound. Initiated in 2011 by artist and curator Sarah Hill, the project has worked with over 300 artists to date, including Mary Stark. Stark’s work sees her developing 16mm film performances and deriving voices through fabric and optical sound. If that sounds a bit of a complex task, then it demonstrates just how far some of these artists will push the limits of their own knowledge to explore the relationship between sound and film, with often fascinating results.

In a one-off event at the Tyneside Cinema, Stark will be presenting some of her 16mm performance practice and introducing her work, providing an insight into the production and purpose of her art. The presentations will then be followed by a discussion led by the University of Manchester’s David Butler, which will explore both Stark’s work and the work of Video Jam in general.  For anyone interested in the more artistic and experimental aspects of film and sound, the event is sure to be enlightening.

Mary Stark will be presenting some of her works at the Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle on Wednesday 22nd April.
