Watch an in conversation between artist and filmmaker Sarah Wood and film curator and writer Gareth Evans.
To accompany Sarah Wood’s new film for Kettle’s Yard, Here is Elsewhere, we invited independent film curator and writer Gareth Evans to speak to Wood to discuss the film.
We are delighted to share North South East West, a recording of their conversation which is accompanied by film footage taken near to where they each live in London and Cambridge. Together they discuss Wood’s thinking behind Here is Elsewhere, as well as art and place in the age of Covid, and the reimagining of our shared world.
North South East West lasts 20 minutes. You can download a transcript here.
Here is Elsewhere is an essay film that explores the idea that in lockdown people become ‘nomads of the imagination’, forced to travel in their mind at a time when physical movement is heavily restricted. The film brings together images, archive film and contributions from other artists, writers and thinkers to ask whether these transformations in perception will enable us to live differently in the future.
