RUSHES [plural noun]

2 raw footage from a period of filming

Rushes of Time is the fifth iteration of Asian Film Archive’s annual film and art event, State of Motion. Spread across two locations – ‘The Archive’ and ‘The Warehouse’, this year’s theme reflects on the relations between ideas of time, bodies of memory and the moving image through site-specific installations, live performances and film screenings.

While archives are built to order and preserve our sense of time, how do artists and filmmakers make a “new” sense of time out of past materials? In exploring the tension between the archival and the contemporaneous, Rushes of Time will look into ways in which artists and filmmakers act as living mediums to gather and animate personal and collective histories.
