Artist Talk: Oisín Byrne with Gary Farrelly

Join long term collaborators Oisín Byrne and Gary Farrelly for a discussion of their feature-length film GLUE (2017), on show at Goldsmiths CCA.

In GLUE, Byrne interrogates the film’s leaky protagonist, Gary, across shifting states and sites. The film unpacks the modes of emotion, intimacy and alienation produced by the name and the insult – celebrating sexuality with salty humour and DIY glamour. In this, its areas of inquiry and experience speak directly to the ways in which Byrne and Farrelly work together.

Moderated by Goldsmiths CCA Director Sarah McCrory, the talk will provide insights into a particular method of film making, one that goes beyond the traditional roles of Director and Actor, to allow space for improvisation and co-scripting.
