Join a film screening followed by a discussion between Alia Syed and Kathryn Elkin

Alia Syed made her early 16mm films at the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative in the mid 1980s, using the Co-op’s optical printer as a means to explore issues of identity and representation. Her films draw from personal and historical realities in order to address gender, location, diaspora and colonial memory.

Kathryn Elkin is a former LUX Associate Artist who works with performance, video and writing. Like Syed, Elkin’s work is concerned with personal methods of translation, transcription and representation, offering a comparison of the way in which we experience art to the ways it is understood culturally.

Join the artists in conversation after the screening.
