Inventory, Uri Zaig, Joan Jonas, Miranda July, HI-RES!, and much,
much more. Details follow…

Festival Programme: 2 - 9 March
Exhibition: 2 march - 8 April NOW LIVE!

PANDÆMONIUM 2001 commissions and presents international work from the
leading lights in film, visual arts and digital culture.
Uncompromising, fresh, compelling and radically diverse, this work
speaks on its own terms. From daft punk cinema to the finest art
film, from installation to the Internet, from sound art to
cinephilia, this is a festival of bleeding media. It is not about the
future, it is now.

PANDÆMONIUM 2001 features an intensive festival programme in the Lux
Cinema with over150 new films and videos from around the world.

There are nine new commissions: three for the Lux Gallery, three for
the Single Screen, and three from artists working with emerging

Talks, performances and special events will ignite discussion and
debate among the thousands expected to converge on London¹s most
vibrant cultural quarter during March. A national tour follows to
venues around the UK.

Selected highlights:

€ At a fascinating stage in his career, Mat Collishaw presents
installations across three venues and a giant blue babyŠ

€ Grazia Toderi, one of the many new Italian artists on the rise, subtly manipulates
 night-time London in a multi-screen aerial projection onto the Lux¹s famous windows.

€ The artist collective INVENTORY examine the social fallout of
enforced gentrification in their portrait of Mitte, Berlin's answer
to Shoreditch.

€ Miranda July, the bastard daughter of David Lynch and Kim Gordon,
offers the latest production from the original Big Miss Moviola and a
live movie - The Swan Tool - at the ICA.

€ In the hands of Israeli artist Uri Tzaig, the most incendiary
issues take on a new light. Allah Akbar (For the Love of God) is a
radical new short film comprising a set of TV ads for the Act of
Creation, playfully pitching religious faith into sublime commercial

€ Oliver Payne + Nick Relph are young artists on the rise - don¹t
miss their free-form journey into the dark heart of rural England.

€ Eline McGeorge, and  HI-RES! - garlanded at  FlashForward
2000 - feature in the Emerging Technologies
Exhibition, capturing the gadget zeitgeist with ground-breaking new
work made especially for hand-held PDA's.

€ The Internet renaissance in vector graphics is celebrated by the
new I-D Media Flash Prize.

€ Joan Jonas makes a special appearance in the UK to present rare and
unseen early work.

€ Numerous UK and World premieres including work by John Smith,

souls on the information superhighway... a feast of diverse and
visionary films.
