NAN GOLDIN filmed for Tate

I made this film with photographer Nan Goldin to coincide with the launch of her new book about Children, Eden and After.  Wonderful Kate Vogel from Tate led the interview and produced the film. Watch it HERE

TateShots writes: "In this TateShots interview, Goldin introduces her latest book, Eden and After; a collection of portraits she has taken of children - one of the artist's ongoing photographic subjects. The book includes portraits of Goldin's close friends' children, with moments captured from pregnancy through to teenage years of life, and provides an intimate investigation into the narrative of childhood."

SPAZIO DI LUCE: A film for the Whitechapel Gallery

The Whitechapel Gallery commissioned me to make a film about Giuseppe Penone's new installation, Spazio Di Luci, on show for the next year in the new Bloomberg space. I spent a couple of days in Turin at his fantastic studio with Achim Borchardt-Hume, the senior curator from the Whitechapel who conducted the interview. The sculpture is beautiful. Check it out...

I visited his incredible studio and filmed a visit from the Tate curators.  Christine Cynn and I then filmed Richter and Nicholas Serota in conversation, which forms the spine of the film. The show runs till January 2012.

Joan Miró Film for Tate Modern

My latest film is playing on Level 4 at Tate Modern and on their site here. 

The film explores Joan Miró's life and working practice, beginning at his first studio at his family's farm in Montroig.  Guided by Miró's grandson and the curators from Tate Modern, the film visits his complex of studios and workshops near Palma, Mallorca, where he moved after the Second World War and then worked prolifically until his death at the age of 93.  It includes rare material from films by Pere Portabella and Català Roca of Miró at work, and testimonials from friends who remember him as a remarkably generous and humble man.

The film was made to accompany the exhibition 'Joan Miró, The Ladder of Escape' at Tate Modern.  14 April - 11 September.   Directed, filmed and edited by MPH.
