The work shown is 'A Gift Of Sight/The Man Who Knew Too Little/That's Entertainment/The Wonderful Lie'. The installation is constructed from four feature films woven together, unspooled film projectors and lenses. It contains approximately 228,800 individual photographs and 1433 metres of celluloid film. Mary Stark is an artist, photographer and filmmaker based in Manchester. Her practice explores the materiality of celluloid film. She is studying a PhD exploring the shared language of film and stitch. Supported by a Cornerhouse Micro Commission, her work has developed into photographic prints, textile objects, installation and digitally woven video. Before studying MA Photography, she completed a degree in Embroidery and worked in a variety of roles in the arts, education and video production.
