Use this kind of Sky at Camden Arts Centre - This ongoing project co-curated by the artists Paul Eachus and Nooshin Farhid takes the form of a video screening of the work of eight international artists whose activities reflect a range of different moving image genres and visual strategies. These compelling works whilst initially appearing dissimilar and unconnected, on closed observation have a particular thread of commonality, they engage with the political through the use of humour. From Simon Faithfull's use of the documentary form in his film shot in the Antarctic, to Steve Rienke's appropriation o the scientific bio-world, with just a hint of Woody Allen to Josef Dabernig's portrayal of repressed passion and emotional intensity in response to a competitive football match.
