I am happy to announce the premiere of my recent film installation OMEN will be hosted by Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival in Hawick, Scotland. The event will take place from 2nd till 6th of March 2017. Full Programme here:
Over 60 filmmakers and artists from around the world will be landing in Hawick on March 2nd for the seventh edition of Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival. Screening over 120 films at Hawickâ€™s Tower Mill, with 23 world premieres, 12 moving image installations around the town, expanded cinema performances and a filmmaker symposium, Alchemy promises to transform Hawick into a melting pot of creativity for some of the worldâ€™s most imaginative moving image artists.
Highlights include the Scottish premiere of Rachel Macleanâ€™s It’s What’s Inside That Counts. Maclean has been chosen to represent Scotland at the Venice Biennale in …2017, in a major new exhibition curated by Alchemy Film & Arts. Her work powerfully satirises the fears and desires of our contemporary zeitgeist, cloaked in a super-saturated aesthetic of fairy-tale consumer culture. Maclean will be present for a Q&A, discussing the evolution of her work and the themes of her new Venice commission.
Another sprinkling of Venetian magic comes from Alchemyâ€™s tribute to the late John Berger, the Booker-prize-winning author of Ways of Seeing. In a special screening of his 1989 film Play Me Something, also featuring Tilda Swinton and Margaret Bennett, Berger narrates a politicised Venetian romance between a farm worker and a young bohemian woman, to a bemused waiting room of misfits in a desolate aiport lounge on the Scottish island of Barra. Directed by Tim Neat, present for a Q&A.
In perhaps the Worldâ€™s first ever surrealist experimental opera-musical, the UK premiere of Warsaw-based Karolina Bregula’s The Tower, follows the fate of a group of well-meaning community activists who decide that the solution to their social problems lies in building an enormous tower of sugar. With music by Glasgow based Ela Orleans, their utopian dreams inevitably lead toward more dystopian realities.
Expanding the festivalâ€™s ethos of conversational encounter into a fifth day, British artist Andrew KÃ¶tting will lead a raggle-taggle eight mile procession of artists and miscreants towards the Hermitage Castle and the spectral vision that is Mary Queen of Scots. Reuniting the ghosts of King Harold and his hand fast wife Edith Swan Neck, KÃ¶ttingâ€™s film-walk culminates in a screening of Edith Walks at Hermitage Hall.
For the closing film, Alchemy hosts the European premiere of Incident Reports by Canadian auteur Mike Hoolboom. An episodic love letter to an unseen therapist, Hoolboomâ€™s film is a luminous celebration of humanity, traversing memory, forgetting, image making and gender identity, while touching the heart of what it is to be in the world. It is an essay film that leads us joyfully to an ultimately life affirming conclusion: â€œLoving would be easy if your colours were like my dreams: Red, gold, and green.â€

Usurp Art presents the Usurp Zone5 Film Festival with extraordinary screenings, an exhibition and
a film sound track turntable night, featuring more than 80 experimental, short films, by artists and
filmmakers from over 15 countries, including Argentina, India, Jordan, Peru, Spain and South Africa.
With spatial sound explorations to post-internet performative actions, to meaning-finding/meaning
making idiosyncrasies, the Usurp Zone5 Film Festival traverses cinematic and televisual contexts,
film and video semiotics, allusions to gaming, advertising and internet art. This ambitious festival
highlights the politics of DIY creativity at a time of cuts and austerity. The programming for the
festival employs an experimental process that breaks with conventional curatorial authorship and
fosters a more democratic spectatorship, enabling audiences to create their own surprise links,
chance connections and perceptual analysis. The Usurp Zone5 Film Festival transforms the Usurp
Art Gallery into a suggestive interface; a communal, intimate living room in which to be inspired,
reflect, debate and share.
Usurp Art is proud to be the main sponsor
of this festival. Programme supported by
Film Hub London, managed by Film London.
Proud to be a partner of the BFI Film
Audience Network, funded by the National

Thoughts on Work Programme 68 in October 2014 at CAC by Jennifer Milarski.
“Nazare revisited her existing moving image work Hic Non Est, created during a residency in Palestine last year, and reconstructed the work in response to the space. The rooms were set up as a visual diary of her Palestinian memories and experiences and the theme of the tree of life was repeatedly visually present, even in the form of an actual olive tree which transformed the space into an organic part of the show. This is one of the best things about CAC that it has the ability to shape shift with each show, if you brought a tree in to a conventional white cube type gallery it would very much be apparent that it had been deliberately brought in an artwork. At CAC the tree looked as if it could’ve grown out of the ground and perhaps the whole exhibition had come about around the tree.” Jennifer Milarski
