Artists Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais have been collaborating since 2011 on moving image work, performance and photography. Since meeting they have worked exclusively together seeing themselves as two halves of a single artist. In this episode they talk about their working practice, being present in their work, their ongoing exploration of mythology and their latest 'studio diaries' project.
They also produce Film Panic magazine, a publication dedicated to contemporary artist moving image and experimental film featuring interviews, essays, manifestos and diaries. Their manifesto 'The Quest For The Cine-Rebis' was published in Issue 2 of Film Panic and is worth a read.
"The Quest For The Cine-Rebis, a manifesto that calls for new approaches to cinema and challenges the patriarchal, industrial approaches that have dominated for the last century. Our intention is to strive for a new art cinema that claims the medium back from the overly rational, conservative and commercial forms that have created a conformity of expression in a time when we should be seeing a myriad of possibilities."
As with most of our contributors you can see work from Daniel & Clara on their vimeo page, and listen to our chat on the player below.
