A pairing of two of the most compelling experimental filmmakers of their generation.
The Govett-Brewster’s Projection Series surveys the landscape of historical and contemporary fine art filmmaking, encouraging our audiences to experience the wider world of local and
international film and moving image.
New Zealand-born Lye (1901-1980) is acclaimed for his pioneering experimental cinema, principally his development of the direct technique whereby visual imagery is applied straight onto celluloid without the use of a camera.
Born in Germany just a year before Lye, Fischinger is celebrated as a leading exponent of abstract cinema and for his influence as the 'father of visual music'. Observed together, these two masters exemplify the vanguard of experimentation in film.
Projection Series #12: Oskar Fischinger and Len Lye is curated by the Gallery's 2017 Creative New Zealand curatorial intern Michelle Wang.
