Machine Dreams 5 - 8 June
The Bruce Lacey Experience
Combining the anarchic comedy of the Goons and Monty Python with cybernetic art and pagan ritual, Bruce Lacey has been a legendary figure in the British countercultural art scene from the 1960s to the present day. In a varied life, Lacey has collaborated with The Beatles, Spike Milligan and Fairport Convention, created performance art before the term existed, and invented a series of robots and automata. The Bruce Lacey Experience is a documentary made by British artist Jeremy Deller and filmmaker Nick Abrahams, in which they go in search of Lacey's crazy genius and capture the spirit of this visionary artist. The film will be introduced by writer Rob Young (The Wire).
Directors: Jeremy Deller & Nick Abrahams, 2012, UK (73 mins).
