A constellation of screenings, readings and workshops extending from an invitation made by Laura Guy and Cara Tolmie to Mia Edelgart, Deirdre Humphrys and Alberta Whittle.

Think of a relationship as a rhythm. We eat, watch, read and rest together. The relationship is a system of negotiation. It is shaped as much by stubbornness as it is generosity. Our interaction is affected by varying states of health and ill health, unequal wage relations and different pressures on time.

There are varying capacities for attention and distraction, intensity and hesitation, productivity and downtime. Everything gets pulled through this system of uneven exchange. Some things we hold on to. Other stuff falls away. There are only so many encounters you can subject a form to and it still remain intact. Think of the point where lived-in rhythms become inhospitable. Conjure a thing that repeats until it becomes illegible. Consider an object of desire that is obliterated by the very same relation that brought it into being. AMIF 2017 explores the idea of programme as negotiation. It includes new works by Mia Edelgart and Deirdre Humphrys; a workshop exploring interracial relationships and rest led by Alberta Whittle; reflections on authenticity and authorship from Fiona Jardine; a screening of Jacqui Duckworth’s 1982 reconstruction of a polyamorous lesbian relationship in which the work of emotional labour meets with the genre of melodrama; and a Sunday matinee performance of Trinh T. Minh-ha and Jean-Paul Bourdier’s narrative tale of love and voyeurism. ___ About AMIF LUX Scotland and Tramway’s annual Artists’ Moving Image Festival (AMIF) was established in 2012 to provide a platform for the discussion and presentation of artists’ moving image, showcasing forms of production and research alongside screenings and discursive events. Hosted by Tramway, AMIF receives ongoing support from LUX and LUX Scotland. AMIF 2017 is co-organised by Tramway and LUX Scotland, with support from LUX Moving Image.
