Shezad Dawood in conversation - podcast now online

A public discussion between artist Shezad Dawood and In Certain Places curator Charles Quick is now available to view online or to download as a free video podcast from www.incertainplaces.org. The discussion, which was filmed at the Harris Museum & Art Gallery, Preston, explores the themes and inspirations of Dawood's forthcoming science fiction film, Piercing Brightness, and includes questions from the audience, many of whom were involved in the film as members of the cast and crew.

Piercing Brightness was shot on location in Preston during summer 2011 and is the outcome of a two and a half year relationship between Dawood, In Certain Places and the people and places of Preston. The film is due for release in 2012 and will be shown in Preston at a celebratory event as part of the Preston Guild activities in September 2012. It was commissioned by In Certain Places, in association with Modern Art Oxford and with the further support of Harris Museum & Art Gallery, University of Central Lancashire, Arts Council of England, Preston City Council, Preston Guild 2012, Lancashire County Council, Abandon Normal Devices Festival and Outset Contemporary Art Fund.
