Four films by Moving Image course leader Matthew Noel-Tod will be shown as part of the 17th Belfast Film Festival followed by a Q&A with the director.
In an article in Art Monthly, Nick Warner wrote of Matthew’s work: ‘Most potent across Noel-Tod’s practice, though, is the cyclical oppressive nature of the capitalist object and its appropriation into popular culture, and more specifically into the arts. Using the visual language of advertising and marketing the artist animates, re-animates and anthropomorphises the object as both conceptual and post-conceptual so that Gaultier’s bottles, Koon’s Balloon Dog and Trump’s globe become central protagonists in the unfolding and daedalian drama that, literally, encircles them.’
