Selection 5: Morgan Quaintance
Morgan Quaintance is a London-based artist and writer, who has also worked as a curator, musician and broadcaster. This trilogy of recent films, grouped together under the title Hysteresis (“the dependence of the state of a system on its history”), brings together archive materials with newly shot 16mm in order to reflect on Britain’s artistic and socio-cultural present and how it’s shaped by its recent past. Unifying seemingly disconnected subjects, from the artist’s mother to an avant-garde sound ensemble, Quaintance makes an impassioned plea for progressive thought and action.
