Matthew Burdis is a filmmaker. During his residency he will work with James Capper to take footage of Capper’s sculptures TELE STEP and ATLAS. For more information about this project click here.
Matthew’s own work, which he will also spend time developing, often features his own sculpture and photography. He graduated from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2015 where he was awarded the Landmark PLC Award for his degree show film Lindisfarne One One.
Lindisfarne One One is a silent black and white film shot on the tidal island of Lindisfarne, Northumberland. It deals with personal and historical loss, drawing on first hand memories of the island as well as its representation in cinema.
He has recently written and directed a short film in partnership with the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London as part of the STOP PLAY RECORD program. The film will be screened at the ICA later this year.
He has been invited back to Chelsea College of Art and Design to set up and run
The Chelsea Film Forum: it aims to create a space to view and discuss experiences of cinema, artist’s film and video. The forum consists of regular screenings and events, including the work of current students as well as guest artists and filmmakers.
He will be featured in this year’s XL Catlin Art Guide, launched at the London Art Fair 2016.
