British Film and Video Artist, Chris Paul Daniels, presents work made in response to his five week residency at Kuona Trust, Nairobi supported by the Triangle Network and Gasworks Gallery (London) International Fellowship Programme.
Chris will have screenings and video installations on view throughout the grounds of the Kuona space and be performing Live Visuals that showcase filmic collaborations, animations and time-lapse studies made during his Residency accompanied by a live musical performance by Ketebul music’s recording artist Ochieng’ Nelly
The video work previews raw unedited footage of a larger documentary piece titled ‘Premier/Divisions’ which will premiere at Kuona Trust at a later date in March and will therefore be VJ’d as a freely improvised and live visual performance in reaction to the music.
Chris graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2010 and subsequently won the Deutsche Bank Award for Art for his collaborative film project – ‘Unravel the longest hand painted film in Britain’ (http://unravelfilm.blogspot.co.uk) which has toured over ninety art spaces throughout the UK including Tate Britain, The National Media Musuem and the British Film Institute. He has worked on several international projects in Iceland, Sweden and the Netherlands and screened work extensively in the UK and internationally.
His work in characterised by experimental documentation of shared memories and communal perspectives and this will be reflected in the documentary he has been producing during his first visit to the continent.
