Video Projects

Dublin born Paul Rowley and Memphis born David Phillips currently work primarily with film, video and sound, exhibiting their work in galleries, museums and festival screenings.

In 2000 they were awarded the Glen Dimplex Artists’ Award, the Irish Museum of Modern Art’s annual contemporary art prize, seen as the Irish equivalent of the Turner Prize. Their short video Suspension was awarded a Golden Spire at the San Francisco International Film Festival, and they were the recipients of the New Langton Arts Award for video. Paul recently won the Irish American Arts Awards, in both the under 35 category and the overall prize. Paul has also received many awards from the Irish Arts Council since 1997.

Some recent exhibitions include Rencontres Internationales at the Pompidou Centre, Paris, Forum Expanded at the 2011 Berlin Film Festival, Re:mote at the Photographers’ Gallery, London, Your chance to live at 300m3 in Gothenburg, the Kunst Film Biennial in Cologne, Fricción, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Mexico City, Gravity Loop at the Butler Gallery Kilkenny, Videonale at the Bonn Kunst Museum, and Bambi at the ICA in Philadelphia. Recent screenings include the Impakt festival, Oberhausen Film Festival, the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, and dedicated screenings at the Darklight Digital Festival in Dublin and Prog:ME, the Rio de Janeiro Festival of Media Arts. Paul and David recently completed a collection of films to accompany a live performance of John Cage’s Sonatas and Interludes, premiered at The Stone in New York in collaboration with pianist Emily Manzo.

Residencies and fellowships include artist in residence at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida with Gillian Wearing, the Macdowell Artist Colony in New Hampshire, the Bogliasco Foundation in Italy, and a residency at the Experimental Television Center in New York, which recently led to a grant from the New York State Council for the Arts.

In 2008 Paul completed his first feature length documentary which he made in collaboration with co-director Nicky Gogan and composer and artist Dennis McNulty. Seaview was shot in the former Butlin's holiday camp at Mosney, Ireland, which is now used as a holding center for asylum seekers. The film, which combines the aestetics of video installation work with the documentary format, premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and has travelled internationally since. The film was nominated for an Irish Film and Television Award and received a Special Jury Mention at the DMZ Documentary Festival in Korea.

David and Paul have just completed a new multi-screen video work for LAX airport in Los Angeles. This permanent installation will be on view from early 2012.
