A new touring programme curated by aemi (Artists’ & Experimental Moving Image) featuring contemporary moving image works by Irish & international artists.

‘Súitú’ – an Irish language term pronounced Suet-two – signifies the sucking in-and-out sound made as the sea moves through stones at the shoreline, pulling them into water before rolling them back onto dry land. Evoking the elemental, the programme’s pacing picks up not just on the familiar ebbs and flow of the sea, but also the external forces that circumscribe contemporary lived experience. From inner psychological journeys to the phenomenological, the seven films in this programme together offer an emotional, embodied and sensory experience.

Súitú’ is an aemi programme that forms connections between contemporary moving image work by Irish and international artists. aemi is touring ‘Súitú’ to venues nationally and internationally across 2023.
