Matt Hulse (UK) OUT OF MY BOX: SELECTED INSTAGRAM VIDEOS FROM LOCKDOWN
During Lockdown I produced nearly 100 short videos for Instagram. Here is a selection that explore notions of travel, movement and staying put.
“Matt Hulse creates out of whatever is to hand – he transforms the everyday and banal into something striking, witty and beautiful.” (Glasgow Short Film Festival)
Matt Hulse is an artist, poet, filmmaker, photographer, performer and writer. His films have screened at dozens of festivals and galleries in 25+ countries internationally. He has been nominated thrice each for The Jarman Award and The Margaret Tait Awards. In 2019 he was one of ten artists commissioned to make a short film for Margaret Tait 100, celebrating the centenary of Orcadian filmmaker. In 2017 he was the overall winner of Germany’s prestigious Felix Schoeller Photo Award.
His third feature-length film SOUND FOR THE FUTURE premiered at the Gala of EXPERIMENTA (BFI London Film Festival 2020) and is slated for release in early 2022.
He currently lives in England's much-maligned town of Reading where he was recently artist-in-residence in a shopping centre.
