NOWs: Tilt by Clara Jo with soundtrack by Jacob Kirkegaard

08 - 09 July 2016 / Nows

Excerpt: Tilt. A film installation by Clara Jo. 2016

Tilt is a film installation by Clara Jo which creates a contemporary parallel of an Enlightenment World, employing current museological digital imaging technologies as devices to penetrate the surface of scientific and artistic objects. Rather than performing direct incisions into material culture, these new technologies create a surrogate and abstracted experience of objects and bodies for public consumption. This film draws from the RA Collections and Archives, folding in material from other London institutions such as the Burlington Courtyard Learned Societies and the Imaging and Analysis Centre at the Natural History Museum.

Clara Jo is recipient of the Starr Fellowship at the Royal Academy Schools.

The film installation will be presented at The John Madejski Fine Rooms, Royal Academy of Arts, London on Friday, 8 July & Saturday, 9 July, 2016, 6 – 9pm.
Enter the Royal Academy from Piccadilly. The Fine Rooms are on the first floor of Burlington House, accessible via the main staircase.
