TENSION

A short Film by Conrad Armstrong and Katia Ganfield of Vicious Collective. The film accompanies Conrad's latest Exhibition TENSION at The Saatchi Gallery as part of the START Art Fair 15 - 18 September 2016. The works explore themes of Tension and Division in Post-Brexit Britain.







SHADOWPLAY

A short film by London based artist Conrad Armstrong. The film is part of a new body of work called PROGRESS in which Conrad wishes to explore the idea of Progress and the varying and transient perceptions that we have of it within our society - to try and get to the heart of what PROGRESS really means.


The film focuses on personal themes of transience, London, childhood and cyclical change within the context of the idea that 'the rocking horse is in constant motion but makes no progress'.

Spring Ritual

During the Spring of 2015 we followed Kodama and some of his followers into the forest to observe their spring ritual - where the dark energy of winter was channeled into personal talismans and then committed to the flames before the Spring Queen was chosen and initiated.
