Chelsea Cafe Project #10 Dundee to London via Dublin Sinéad Bligh

Dundee to London via Dublin

Sinéad Bligh

Dundee to London via Dublin is a retelling of past work after reading Derek Jarman’s text Chroma, A Book of Colour – June 93. With the multiple narratives intersecting Chroma, and a heightened awareness of colour in mind, this work was made. It ruminates on colour associations, current narratives and past memories, which create this whole. The work brings together past video and sound work made on various journeys between Dublin and Dundee and current sound work made in London. Shown here are single elements – stills of the film Dundee to London via Dublin. 2014. The rest of the piece exists online.

Please visit sineadbligh.com to view the work as a whole.

The Early Films of Derek Jarman | Stuart Comer in discussion with James Mackay

Film director, set designer, artist, writer and polemicist Derek Jarman (1942-1994) is widely recognised as one of the most influential artists of his generation. His early experimental super 8mm films preceded a career that included Caravaggio (1986), Jubilee (1978) and Wittgenstein (1993).
Stuart Comer is Curator of Film at Tate Modern, overseeing moving image work for the Tate Collection and Displays. He recently co-curated the opening programme for The Tanks and organises an extensive programme of screenings, performances, events and exhibitions.
James Mackay worked alongside Derek Jarman for many years, producing some of Jarman’s most important films, such as The Angelic Conversation (1985), The Garden (1990) and Blue (1993).
