Sam Austen’s (b. 1986, London) dark and spiralling shorts are shot solely on 16mm film. Heavily influenced by early sci-fi and Japanese independent horror, Austen repeatedly plunges the viewer into a world out of control. You become pinned between sickening motions, emotionally loaded text and the subterranean recesses of the artist’s mind, so beautifully made it becomes impossible to break eye contact.

Are you sick of going to site-specific exhibitions where the artists have literally responded to the windows?
Or seeing a group show and it’s just work you’ve already seen online politely scattered around a white space?
This is not CHUMMING. Located at The Pipe Factory, a Grade-B listed industrial space in Glasgow’s historic Barras region, the exhibition is interested in the culture the space inhabits and the group show as a model for artists to cross over, further exploring new levels of discourse and engagement. Accompanying events include unique happenings with local musicians and filmmakers.
