Format Film Club
Wednesday 9 Oct at 6.30 pm
This time round at Format’s Film Club the Swedish-Portuguese artist duo LealVeileby will discuss their practice and present two video works as well as a new ongoing project. Domestic Heroes resembles an absurd home video in which we follow an array of repaired household utensils as they embark upon their domestic adventures. In The Fools footage of a pack of street dogs is overlaid with an interview by an amateur fado singer and her recordings from a local pub in Lisbon. LealVeileby will also present parts of an ongoing project in which they map words that they have in common in both their native languages. The screening will last around 30 min.
Format’s Film Club is always free entry
Artist duo António Leal (born 1976 in Lisbon) and Jesper Veileby (born 1985 in Karlstad) live and work in Malmö. They usually work with video, installation, photography and objects and their work is characterised by playfulness and humour. At the core of their practice is the question of how people view and perceive the world, often based on the meeting of their cultural backgrounds. António Leal and Jesper Veileby graduated from Malmö Art Academy in 2011 and 2014 respectively.
