The Department of Art Public Talks Programme Spring 2019 welcomes filmmaker and sound designer Chu-Li Shewring.
Chu-Li Shewring works as a filmmaker, sound designer and sound artist. She co?directed her last film project, Working to Beat the Devil with Adam Gutch, featuring her father as an ageing scientist, troubled and confused by remembrances from his past, whilst a creature journeys unceasingly to find its creator. Composed using fictional, archival and documentary material, the film interweaves semi-biographical elements from the hermetic life of Guy Shewring (the scientist) with an imagined world of his past and future, in which science becomes fiction.
Recent collaborations include work with artists and filmmakers Beatrice Gibson, Frances Scott, Siobhan Davies & David Hinton, Ben Rivers, Jeremy Deller, Patrick Keiller, and the Chapman Brothers. She is a lecturer in Goldsmiths University film department, and graduated from the National Film and Television School in 2007. Before this, she worked as a medical videographer in Charing Cross Hospital where she developed her interest in experimental filmmaking. Finding herself led by sound in the filmmaking process, she embarked on a degree in Sound Art at the London College of Communication. She sees this balance of sound work and filmmaking as a healthy partnership, each one always informing the other.
This event is free. No booking is required. All welcome.
