installation view

Existing somewhere between documentary, ethnographic study and personal reflection 'What Will We Do With What is Left' explores representations of Palestine through the prism of Jenin Refugee Camp in the Occupied Territories of Palestine.

Framed as a series of experiments in form, this work focuses in part on the physical act of documentation; does it have the potential to distort the intention of the subject or does a new explicable truth surface?

The film works on a 25 minute loop made up of 7 scenes using unique material filmed in Jenin by artist, filmmaker Simon Clode since 2011. This multi screen installation is created in collaboration with artist Matt Smith and supported by Arts Council of Wales and Chapter.

Interactive Discussion

Friday 26 October 2018

Davis & Jones invite you to an interactive discussion looking at our collective relationship with Palestine and Palestinian people. During the evening we will explore how our colonial past continues to influence peoples’ lives on a daily basis, how we experience Palestine when we’re not there, and how we can be allies through art.

A collaboration between Deborah Aguirre Jones and Eleanor Davis, Davis & Jones are socially engaged artists who interact with and gently interrupt the social and physical contexts they find themselves in.

They create and run with situations that are at the same time familiar and surprising, often connecting with systems and professions such as the justice system, housing, healthcare and social enterprise.

On bridges, beaches and housing estates, in building sites, prisons and hospitals, Davis & Jones make art with people and relationships.  


 

SIMON CLODE

Simon Clode is an Artist/Filmmaker whose work intercuts many disciplines. He is the founder of Crowblack films Limited a newly created company that separates his previous corporate work from his Documentary and Visual Art practise. Simon's work has slowly shifted in recent years from commercial video to exclusively focusing on Documentary and Visual Arts, his interests lying in ethnographic, environmental and global political commentary.


 

MATT SMITH

Matt Smith is a UK based Artist Filmmaker. He is the founder of VIDEOfeet, a UK based art collective that unite a wide range of disciplines including film, sound and visual art. His work has explored the relationship between online presence and real experience, how digital communication affects human consciousness and, recently, how our perceptions of time affect our understanding of ourselves. His aim is to create experiences that  tell unique stories which produce intense, hypnotic, and, at times, hallucinatory experiences.
