Mark Lewis with David Campany
Organised by Birkbeck Institute for the Moving Image
Mark Lewis makes films and digital works. By using film as a gallery medium, he investigates the process of cinema production while also taking in consideration the wider tradition of photography and art. Recent films like Man (2012), Smoker at Spitalfields (2012) and City Road 24 March (2012) make direct reference to the pictorial exploration of the everyday, and in his piece Black Mirror at the National Gallery (2011) the interaction between the museum space, the mirror and the cinematic camera becomes a collaborative exercise for observation and composition making. David Campany is a writer and curator. His books include Art and Photography (Phaidon, 2003) and Photography and Cinema (Reaktion, 2008). He is currently organising exhibitions of the work of Mark Neville (at The Photographer's Gallery) and Victor Burgin (at Ambika P3).
