For August Craft Month 2016 five NI makers were invited to produce new work in response to heritage footage from Northern Ireland Screen’s Digital Film Archive. Sharon Adams, Sheena Devitt, Nicola Gates, Alison Fitzgerald and Ronan Lowery each created new works spanning heritage, functional and conceptual outcomes, which formed the Film Makers exhibition.
In this free talk, participant Sharon Adams discusses how the project pushed all five makers to take risks in their respective practices, and shows both the films that inspired the work and new footage that recorded their processes.
The project was curated by R-Space Gallery and partly funded by both the BFI and ACNI.
