Memory Fade ScreeningThe Art Gallery of Hamilton’s World Film Festival and Hamilton Artists Inc. present a screening Memory Fade by internationally acclaimed visual alchemist Carl Brown. Carl’s characteristic use of saturated colour is showcased in Memory Fade, exquisitely crafted on dual-screen 35mm film. Employing his transformative alchemical techniques, Carl explores issues of memory fade – the phenomenon wherein exposure to a traumatic event is progressively forgotten. Through a separation of colours, dissolution of the self is symbolized in fittingly eidetic media imagery. An open forum question and answer period will accompany this presentation.
Working with Materials: a Master Class with Carl Brown
After the screening of Memory Fade, there will be a hands-on master class with Carl Brown at the Print Studio, in which the techniques outlined will be applied directly to film. Attention will be given to the theoretical and practical foundations of material-oriented filmmaking. The artist will begin with an introduction to chemical manipulation of film, providing a stepwise description of his techniques and showcasing them with excerpts from his own work.
Internationally acclaimed master alchemist Carl Brown has been making films and photographs since the age of fifteen. His visually stunning films films and photographs have shown at the Centre Pompidou, the Louvre, the Musée de l’Orangerie, the Musée de Beaux Arts, and the Museum of Modern Art, and the Kunst Gallery in Seoul. His unique style is celebrated world-wide. He has taught film at the Louvre, L’École des beaux-arts de Bordeaux, the Banff Centre For The Arts, the San Francisco School of Art and Design, and Kodak House in Rochester.
