Presenting a program of hand made 16mm film work from Australian experimental filmmaker Richard Tuohya distinctively cinematic experience, wrestled from mundane objects and salvaged film industry equipment. More visual then cerebral, these pictures move with an energy unique to film.


As the film industry sheds much of its traditional machinery, Tuohy and other like him are scavenging these technological leftovers, giving them new life in the growing artist run film labs movement, and discovering new possibilities and techniques that had been largely out of reach for an earlier generation of film experimenters. Tuohy refers to such lab-working filmmakers as coming from the school of ‘dirty hands’; where the filmmaker really gets their hands into the nitty-gritty of film. Tuohy sees this change as an opportunity, indeed as a kind of liberation for the experimental filmmakerallowing experimentation in areas that previously were too often a costly mystery kept in the hands of professionals. This program presents six hand-processed and DIY printed 16mm film works from Tuohy’s recent output. The films, though diverse, are all highly abstract and tightly structured and share a fascination with the visual possibilities of basic traditional film technology.


Richard Tuohy is one of the most active experimental film artists currently working on celluloid in Australia. His film Iron-Wood won first prize (ex aequo) at the 2009 International Abstract Cinema Exhibition (ABSTRACTA) in Rome. He runs Nanolab in Australiathe specialist small gauge film processing laboratory. He actively encourages other artists to work with cine film through his Artist Film Workshop initiative. In 2006 he and his partner started Nanolab as an artist run film laboratory offering super 8 processing.
