Talbot Rice Screen presents an evening of abstract video works installed within and around the paintings and sculptures in the ‘Drawn Away Together’ exhibition.

The videos, selected from an open-call, span a broad range of moving image media including found footage, live action and computer-generated imagery. Like the works in ‘Drawn Away Together’, they explore and reveal the diverse and elusive nature of ‘the abstract’.

The evening will also include readings of the collective poem devised during artist Kevin Henderson’s Creative Writing Workshop ‘Once somewhere, somewhen’. The readings will be conducted by participants of the workshop.

Orphans 2012 is a showcase of of new audio-visual intermedia; installations, live performances and screenings of audio-visual shorts by artists from across the world curated by Aberdeen based composer, Ross Whyte.
