Garter Lane Arts Centre, Wednesday 27th March ’19 @ 7.30 p.m.


Curated on the occasion of ‘93% Stardust’, Vivienne Dick’s major retrospective at IMMA in 2017, ‘Delirious Rhythm’ comprises a personal selection of films that inspire her internationally acclaimed experimental film work. The films chosen for this programme are about anarchic moments, about being alive to music, to rhythm, and the value of staring into space. In an era obsessed with targets and prescriptive living, the significance of daydreaming and dawdling is often overlooked.

This programme serves as a reminder of the important role played by chance interaction and sheer nerve in creativity. Featuring works by Len Lye, Helen Levitt, Masha Godovannaya, Vivienne Dick, D.A. Pennebaker, Moira Tierney, Bev Zalcock & Sara Chambers, Sarah Pucill and Chantal Akerman, this exhilarating programme foregrounds films that relate to the street, the domestic and the unconscious.

A Colour Box (1936) Len Lye (3 minutes)
In The Street (1948) Helen Levitt, Janice Loeb + James Agee (17 minutes)
