As part of the public programming for the exhibition Bourgeois Leftovers at de Appel Arts Centre – co-curated with Karima Boudou, Kari Cwynar, Angela Jerardi, Srajana Kaikini, and Florencia Portocarrero – I moderated a panel discussion under the title Cinematic Leftovers on April 23, 2013 at the EYE Film Institute Netherlands in Amsterdam.
Guy Edmonds, film restorer and archivist
Daragh Reeves, artist
Elif Rongen-Kaynakçı, Silent Film Specialist at the EYE Film Institute Netherlands
In the context of Bourgeois Leftovers and in collaboration with the e*cinema Academy series at the EYE Film Institute Netherlands, this panel presents a cinematic evening exploring – in the broadest sense – leftovers: archival material, found footage and outdated technologies, leftover perspectives, and the worst seat in the house.
Featuring three filmic experiments by artist Daragh Reeves, an excerpt from film restorer and archivist Guy Edmonds’ occasional screening series “Saloon of Refuse,” and a presentation of film scraps and research deep into the archive with Elif Rongen-Kaynakçi, the silent film specialist at the EYE Film Institute Netherlands. Organized in collaboration with EYE Film Institute.
