UNRAVEL: the longest hand painted film in Britain
22nd February 2012, 6pm – 8pm
The next event in the series is led by Chris Daniels who worked as an Information Assistant at the Institute during 2004 before leaving to study at the Royal College of Art where he won the Deutsche Bank Award for Art in 2010.
For Peripherique Chris will be talking about ‘Unravel: the longest hand painted film in Britain’. In collaborative events involving national film venues, art galleries, community spaces and educational institutions Unravel has travelled up and down the country, when completed it will amount to 16 hours of film footage where each frame represents one metre of their 879 mile journey between Lands End and John O Groats.
Along with Chris’ regular Leeds based collaborators, experimental film collective Okolab, this Peripherique event presents sections of the raw and completed footage and explains the development of the project.
Unravel are Chris Daniels and Maria Anastassiou

14th September 6pm – 8pm; HMI Seminar Room
Sampling is the modus operandi of artist Ryan Riddington who is the next guest in Periphique, an informal and occasional series of events organized by Information Assistants at the Henry Moore Institute
For his presentation ‘Chesterfield’, Riddington reads from his essay ‘It/If’. Situating his artistic practice within the context of US hip-hop and UK trip-hop, this reading looks at the recycling, reconfiguration and re-contextualization of music and lyrics to consider the practical and social implications of hip-hop’s material processes such as notions of status, home and self-esteem.
Ryan Riddington is a London based artist who worked at the Henry Moore Institute for six years as an Information Assistant before studying on the MFA at Slade School of Fine Art from 2008
