Eight Films Made of Collages Created During Lockdown

Made specifically for BABE – Bristol Artist’s Book Event – held at the Arnolfini over the weekend of 17 / 18 April 2021, the films narrate, as the camera roves over their collaged surfaces, the various scenarios depicted in four large works – two of these collages are sized 6.5 x 2.5 ft and 4 x 5 ft ~ The Temple Of The Sun, The Annual Blessing Of The Animals, Circus Acts (in progress) and Untitled.

BABE – Bristol Artist’s Book Event at the Arnolfini online presented works by book artists from around the world over the weekend of 17 / 18 April with contributions from artists and publishers in Australia, Argentina, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Russia, Sweden, UK & Ireland and the USA. BABE included 116 artist’s book films by artists and small presses, a downloadable mini catalogue, a writing workshop led by Egidija Čiricaitė, a printing demonstration by the Lemonade Press and an online paper cutting workshop for families by Linda Toigo. BABE2021 was organised by Sarah Bodman, Angie Butler, Phil Owen and Tom Sowden – Centre for Fine Print Research, School of Art & Design UWE Bristol and Arnolfini.

Usually, I use original material from books and magazines, but it has been difficult to source fresh supplies of these with charity shops and street markets closed. A few things to be found on ebay, but that’s like throwing dice.  So, as a way of not using up my ‘stock’ of images, I began ( with Circus Acts ) to use a black & white photocopier.

Here are the films in sequential order
