In conjunction with the current exhibition Lines of Thought, Parasol unit presents moving image works exploring ‘line’ from the 1970’s to the present day.

Part one investigates geographical and political borders and boundaries, works include Francis Alÿs’ Painting/Retoque, 2008; Mona Hatoum’s Measures of Distance, 1988; On the stage, 2010 by Özlem Günyol & Mustafa Kunt and John Smith’s Flag Mountain, 2010.

Continuing along this theme, Part two introduces works shot on 16mm where line is used to explore space, time and the materiality of film. Works include Mirza & Butler’s, The Space Between, 2005; Len Lye’s Free Radicals, 1979 and Margaret Tait’s Colour Poems, 1974, the latter two works employ the experimental technique of scratched celluloid to heighten the visibility of the medium.
