REMINISCENCE OF THE PRESENT

UK (2020), 3 min.

Directed by Daniel Fazio

A tribute to the artist Ilyas Kassam, capturing the visceral and meditative process of creation. We see Ilyas express his physicality onto the canvas, drawing inspiration from the organic movements typified by Isadora Duncan. Ilyas also recites one of his own poems over the visuals, reinforcing the omniscience of the written word and the importance it has as a figurative symbol in his work.
