Come and see the Premiere of Anna Best’s short film, The Tangle, made over the summer of 2018 with residents and school children from new town Cranbrook and staff from the University of Exeter. Based on the tale of The Golden Goose, the film brings together Cranbrook, an underground tunnel, exotic trees from the University of Exeter and girls with golden hair.
Artist Anna Best has exhibited her work in places such as Tate Modern, the Barbican and Whitstable Biennial.
Hard to categorise into one type of art form she says: “With
The Tangle, as with much of my work, I make decisions based on chance
coincidence and found material. I use these as ingredients to collage together
something less like a traditional film and more like a notebook, list or album.
I find these ingredients in my house, on the sites and in the conversations. I
am interested in this film in the binary opposition we see in relationships between
two things, the university and the new town, Higher Education and domestic life
and I wonder how we can change our thinking about knowledge.”
Grateful thanks to all the people involved in this project who gave their time and support. This project was initiated by the University of Exeter’s Arts and Culture Programme, working with the arts to develop collaborations that enrich teaching and learning. It was curated by Ginkgo Projects.
All are welcome to this free event. No booking necessary.
