Susie Green & Simon Bayliss: Artists' music videos

Susie Green and Simon Bayliss (Splash Addict) journey through commercial music videos and artists’ film in a screening of energetic moving image works that have inspired their own practice across music, performance and video.

In 90s rave music videos, such as The Prodigy’s Out of Space, early digital and green-screen technology is combined with footage of dancers, often in rural settings. Taking this techno-romanticism as their starting point, Susie Green & Simon Bayliss invite the audience to celebrate commercial classics and introduce us to lesser-known artist-produced music videos.

Splash Addict received one of four 2019 Projections commissions.
