Unravel at the Chisenhale Gallery [London], this weekend!

UNRAVEL: Screening of edited highlights at the Chisenhale Gallery on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th November...

Unravel are thrilled to be able to invite you all to a special weekend this Saturday and Sunday at the Chisenhale Gallery in East London to screen some of the edited interviews and films from our workshops so far.

Come at any time between 1-6pm to find out what some of our participants have offered in their perspectives on the places where they live, whilst enjoying the filmic results generated at the respective workshops.

The Chisenhale is located in Mile End, East London near Victoria Park - a map of the location can be found by following the link below:

In December 2010, Chisenhale Gallery hosted one of the 75 workshops facilitated by Unravel – the longest hand painted film in Britain. Participants were invited to paint, scratch and directly manipulate 16mm film, and talk about their experiences of living in their home town/city.

One frame of the completed film represents one metre in the 874 mile distance between Land’s End and John O’Groats.  Sound recordings, interviews and perspectives on each location have been collected and compiled– mapping a metaphorical journey through collective memory and identity. These collaged autobiographical accounts speak of individual experience(s) in different locations, times and spaces to offer a non-linear, psycho-geographical exploration of the country made for and by the people of Britain.

Check out the Unravel blog for more info and documentation of the workshop and screening tour!
