Founded in 2016 by Daniel Fitzpatrick and Alice Butler, aemi is an agency and platform for the support and exhibition of artists’ & experimental moving image practices. A key objective of this organisation is to develop audiences for artists’ moving image in Ireland through regular, curated programmes of both Irish and international work with the intention of contributing to and developing critical discourse around practices in this area.
aemi is particularly interested in reclaiming the cinema as a site for the exhibition of works that challenge, expand, and interrogate a wider realm of possibility in terms of what cinema can be and do. Through an ongoing selection of carefully curated programmes ‘aemi Projections’ at IFI, aemi will focus on works, both contemporary and historical, which remind us that cinema can be a space for truly diverse points of view, for warped perspectives and for spatiotemporal journeys utterly unlike those we have become accustomed to.
This month’s screening contains a selection of films from artists Peggy Ahwesh and Julie Murray. Peggy Ahwesh is a widely celebrated figure who came of age in the era of first wave feminism, punk and Super8 filmmaking. This is the first time her work has been screened in Ireland. Julie Murray is an Irish filmmaker based in the U.S., although her work has rarely been screened here. She typically makes short, experimental and often poetic pieces focused on natural environments and archival material.
The screening will be followed by a post-screening discussion with the two filmmakers at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios. For more details and to book tickets, please click here.
