Guy Sherwin has been working with film for over three decades and has extensively investigated the unique qualities of analogue film as a medium, focussing on the relationship between sound, image and film in live performance. His influential experiments into film and sound provide a grounding for the ideas underpinning this exhibition and the processes and methodologies employed by the artists in the show.

The film Night Train 1979 is presented with a construction similar to the one used to create the soundtrack of the film. The additional ‘live’ sound track will be generated alongside the original.


Guy Sherwin lives and works in London. He studied painting at Chelsea School of Art in the late 1960s and taught printing and processing at the London Film-Maker’s Co-op during the mid-70s. His films have been shown at the Hayward Gallery, Tate Modern and Tate Britain.
