BREADROCK is a new film and sculptural installation for PEER, by artist collective Fourthland (Louise Sayarer and Eva Knutsdotter) and artist and filmmaker Rosalind Fowler. Reflecting on a ten-year collaboration with the diverse communities of Wenlock Barn Estate in Hackney, East London, the work is a visceral homage to cultural history, memory and universal myth. Melding experimental and ethnographic filmmaking, the work presents a series of staged vignettes drawing on the rituals and artefacts of the Estate’s Bangladeshi, European, Kurdish, Serbian, Turkish, Ugandan and West Indian communities, to create new kinships and myths.
Opens 5th October 2017 – a massive show of work in central London in a huge space that will include a lot of great moving image/installation stuff:

I have heard this is excellent- a must see!
The Infinite Mix: Contemporary Sound and Image brings together audiovisual artworks that are soulful and audacious in their exploration of a wide range of subjects. In all of the works in this exhibition the interplay between moving image and sound is crucial. Most of the artists have composed, commissioned or remixed soundtracks that relate to the visual element of their work in unexpected ways, and ensure that what you hear is just as important as what you see.
Friday September 9th – Sunday December 4th….Free entry
