The Sneeze 80 X 80: A Featur(ed) Film
Conceived and produced by the artists Peter Lloyd Lewis (UK) and Natasha Makowski (USA), ‘the sneeze 80 x 80’ presents one complete work by 80 international artists representing 29 countries and five continents. The random programme allows for only one showing of each piece of 80-second footage in each presentation and an infinite interpretation of the various juxtapositions. The project pays homage to Thomas Edison’s innovative kinograph film of a sneeze, a random and connective act. Acknowledging the importance of the event in moving image history, the project explores the relationship between video art and feature film. It highlights the connections being made between artists and their work through the questioning of hierarchies, the exploration of narrative and the creative use of time structure.
