A Blemished Code plus live sets by Stevie Jones & Anne-Marie Copestake

Thursday 24 May, 18.00

We present a special expanded screening and live sets around Glasgow-based artist Anne-Marie Copestake’s new film, with the artist and musician Stevie Jones (Sound of Yell, Alasdair Roberts & Friends, Arab Strap).

A poetic study of the life and work of artist Margaret Benyon, pioneer in the artistic use of holography. Giving voice to the unsung legacy of a pioneering woman artist, 

'A Blemished Code' is an impassioned meditation on the representation of female artists, the balancing of creative and domestic life, and the inherent tensions of being a woman working with new technology. The inner life of the subject is represented throughout by a brilliant musical score featuring sung script and compositions by Stevie Jones, Mai Mai and Leigh Ferguson.' (Benjamin Cook, London Film Festival)

Tickets: £6/£4 concessions
