A new touring programme curated by aemi (Artists’ & Experimental Moving Image) featuring contemporary moving image works by Irish & international artists. On Friday, October 6th starting 7 PM the programme will be screened at Filmform in Stockholm with the guest curator from aemi – Daniel Fitzpatrick as well as the artists Susan Hughes, Lisa Freeman and Holly Márie Parnell present.
aemi is an Irish organisation that supports and regularly presents programmes of moving image work by artists and experimental filmmakers. Since its formation in 2016, aemi’s key objective has been to provide support for Ireland-based artists working with the moving image to contribute to the development of infrastructure around these practices across the country. This includes artist support sessions, information clinics, mentorship, and programming, as well as collaborations and extensive touring with both national and international partners. aemi was founded by its co-directors, Alice Butler and Daniel Fitzpatrick and is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
‘Súitú’ – an Irish language term pronounced Suet-two – signifies the sucking in-and-out sound made as the sea moves through stones at the shoreline, pulling them into water before rolling them back onto dry land. Evoking the elemental, the programme’s pacing picks up not just on the familiar ebbs and flow of the sea, but also the external forces that circumscribe contemporary lived experience. From inner psychological journeys to the phenomenological, the seven films in this programme together offer an emotional, embodied and sensory experience.
Featuring work by Fábio Andrade (Brazil), Susan Hughes (Northern Ireland), Morgan Quaintance (U.K.), Bárbara Lago (Argentina), Sofia Theodore-Pierce (U.S.A), Lisa Freeman (Ireland) and Holly Márie Parnell (Ireland), ‘Súitú’ is an aemi programme that forms connections between contemporary moving image work by Irish and international artists. aemi is touring ‘Súitú’ to venues nationally and internationally across 2023.
