A chapter title in Chris Meigh-Andrews’ book on the history of video art, Loop Structures is made up of a selection of films which use repetition and looping as a central device. The programme explores how the effect has been used both to subvert meaning and to mirror the mechanics of filmmaking, memory and history.  In each film, rhythmic patterns quickly emerge and the figures on screen begin to appear as though they’re in a kind of enforced choreography, sometimes tied to a soundtrack built up in compulsive but varying repetitions.
