Harriet Plewis: Loving Attention

For this special day-long event, Tyneside Cinema’s Gallery auditorium becomes an informal viewing-and-moving space—a living room in which audiences are invited to watch films, lie down and listen close for a programme of film screenings, group visualisation and listening activities, and live performance.

Punctuated by films developed by Harriet Plewis with Deborah Bower during the project Reading Room: meeting the universe halfway, the programme includes work by The Otolith Group, Alex Martinis Roe, Anna Lucas and Rehana Zaman that amplifies themes around life-wide learning and feminism. Group activities led by Plewis will draw on and inform the screenings in turn. The day finishes with an evening gig of songs.

Selected as part of the Projections open call.

About the artist

Harriet Plewis is a London based artist. Her activity is rooted in moving image, performance and the contexts of feminist pedagogies. Plewis’s projects are concerned with the conditions for co-creation and often draw on sound, movement, interior design, rehearsal techniques and philosophical writings. She facilitates devised exhibitions and film works and is currently developing a practice of ‘expanded reading’ wherein the way in which textual knowledges are exchanged can be coaxed beyond a relationship between the lone eye and the page.
