A selection of artists who have contributed to Forma’s 18 year history, as well as present and future collaborators, have chosen existing work to return to in a time of change, uncertainty and adaptation. Each film will be screened for 72 hours, with new work made available every Monday and Thursday in the upcoming weeks. Each film will be accompanied by a short Q&A between the artist and Forma, asking what has changed, what has stayed the same and what they've been up to in the meantime.
Work II, a video installation/non-narrative film shot across Asia and Europe, is an attempt to find a dialogue that speaks of universals in scenes of Buddhists in prayer, sprawling Japanese Metropolises, makeshift cosmos and German airports. Accompanying these images is a score arranged by Phil Begg; an ode to Blind Willie Johnson’s ‘Dark was the night’, re-imagined by a plethora of musicians. A song that has now travelled further than anyone, or anything, into interstellar space aboard NASA’s Voyager I.
