To coincide with the London 2012 Olympic Games, Film and Video Umbrella and De La Warr Pavilion present an exhibition of newly commissioned moving image artworks on the theme of sporting excellence. Working in collaboration with top athletes and scientists, four internationally acclaimed artists consider the state of being ‘in the zone’ – the way in which athletes achieve a heightened sense of performance in which body and mind are operating in unison, at maximum impact and with optimum ‘flow’.
David Bickerstaff was commissioned to created short documentaries on the making of each of the new artworks. These short films are intended to provide an insight into the creative process of the artists and to offer a perspective on the collaborations with scientists that have informed the works. The films contain behind-the-scenes footage of each production and include interviews with artists and scientists.
Everything Flows is commissioned and curated by Film and Video Umbrella and De La Warr Pavilion. Supported by The Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England.
