ROAM! ROAM! ROAM! Leeds!
29TH FEBRUARY 2016
FLOODS! PSYCHOGEOGRAPHY! COMMUNITY! ART! POLITICS! NATURE! The Boxing Day floods brought the River Aire to the forefront of our attention. What did the bursting banks want to tell us? How do we feel in its wake? What next, for Leeds’ residents/visitors? … Let’s follow the River Aire upstream from Victoria Bridge, where it joins it’s manmade neighbour the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. Share experiences, hearsay and (hi)stories of the river and its floods as we walk and talk. To document this walk and as a response to what we encounter/experience, we’ll collect found materials along the way and create sketches, stone rubbing etc, and collectively produce a collaged map at our destination, the recently flooded Kirkstall Bridge Inn.
ROAM! ROAM! ROAM! Leeds is curated by multidisciplinary artist David Kelly Mancaux (aka Erkembode) of Leeds College of Art. It’s part of the RUN! RUN! RUN! International Body for Research, which examines running as a critical and creative toolkit to think about the city, technology and logocentrism. Its interdisciplinary and practice-related research activities extend beyond running, and are serious as they are bonkers. They have been enjoyed at Documenta (Germany), Centre for Contemporary Arts (Warsaw), Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting (Chicago) amongst others. Founded by LCA Research Fellow artist/curator Dr Kai Syng Tan FRSA, RUN! RUN! RUN!’s Co-Director is social scientist Dr Alan Latham (UCL).

A616 film WARMING screened as part of Mahu Cinema: curated by Dave Spittle and SJ Fowler. Screenings of over a dozen filmpoems, the emerging medium of poetry film or cinepoetry, crossing poetic principles with video art.
"Poetry has been in dialogue with film since the origins of cinema, driving and challenging its theories from Man Ray and Surrealism or Dziga Vertov and Eisenstein through to later incarnations of the avant-garde, influencing narrative cinema and proliferating today with accessible online platforms and affordable means of production. Whether packaged as filmpoem, film poetry, the poetics of film, cinepoetry, video art (or tangled in distinguishing between the various labels) there is undoubtedly a growing popularity for this crossing of mediums. However, what is it that saves such collaborative or merging experiments from stale or illustrative cliches? How can an exchange between film and poetry be advanced? What is it that, if at all, excites or challenges us in this practice?" - Co-curator Dave Spittle.
