untitled (event time reading) is a new work made for SPILL Festival. It experiments with staging film in an enclosed space, and takes as its starting point the construction of time in relation to language.

Georgie Grace’s work explores language as a means to challenge everyday consciousness, stimulating the imaginary possibilities of the present moment. Georgie’s practice reflects a background in philosophy and social anthropology and seeks to investigate what it might mean to be post-disciplinary.

Georgie’s current film work begins in sites where knowledge is made public through live speech, and considers speech as a form of performance publication. Georgie transcribes this at the point of expression to capture material that is unfixed and transmitted only in a live moment. By intensifying and condensing this language she creates an experience of linguistic disruption and displacements in which the imagination can go to work.
