Terminal Convention Film

As part of the curation of Terminal Convention Cork, Static commissioned a film document of the project by Mike Hannon. The film was premiered at Terminal Convention Liverpool in November 2011 and has subsequently been shown at a variety of Film Festivals.

“Terminal Convention was an ambitious hybrid event that inhabited the disused terminal of Cork Airport for two weeks in March 2011. In the visual art strand of the programme, curated artists were invited to create pieces that were more or less specific to the building where they would be exhibited. The resulting film, Terminal Convention, considers these new arrivals in the light of their surrounds: a terminal devoid of people as the artworks obliquely converse, and the air is heavy with the weight of all that has passed through and on. Terminal Convention was commissioned by Static Gallery, Liverpool.” Mike Hannon
