Joseph Walsh
Thursday 28 February – 12am
A performance and screening by Joseph Walsh conceived as a live film trailer.

Walsh presents ideas for a new film featuring a man who has built his own archive of DVDs on black history and a scenario in which youngsters – who have only ever heard music on mobile phones – discover bass for the first time.

Walsh sees his moving image work as a series of 'video portraits'. He is interested in this format as a means to construct a character by proxy, through external objects and ideas, and how this can be used to describe an emerging subject.

Joseph Walsh (born 1978, Surrey) lives and works in London. Recent solo exhibitions include Evolution of the Meringue, Five Years, London (2011), Track 5, The Old Police Station, London (2011), and he participated in a presentation as part of Latent Cinema, Zabludowicz Collection, London (2012). Recent group exhibitions include Testbed1, Beaconsfield, London (2010) and Time Machine and Anywhere Door at IT Park, Taipei (2010).
