Between the 25 November and 18 December, this empty space
operates as the Farringdon Factory; an open studio complex for live
events, screenings and installations, performances and talks.
Factory Cinema is located on the ground floor and will host a programme
of short films made by both resident and invited artist/filmmakers.
This curated programme will seek to connect the studio practice upstairs
with both visitors and the pedestrians on the street, locating the
building itself as a unique site for observation and discussion.
The Factory builds upon research by artists Natasha Cox and Keira Greene, whose collaborative practice
engages with the construction of the photographic image and the
mechanisms of cinema.
