7 Jun 2013 – 9 Jun 2013 Two youths land in a spaceship outside Preston. Their mission: to re-establish contact and affect the retrieval of the 'Glorious 100' sent to earth millennia ago in human form to study and observe the development of another race. After making contact with one of the 100, now a Pakistani shopkeeper (Bhasker Patel) they discover that many of their kind have become corrupted, forgetting their original purpose and slowly becoming influenced by and in turn influencing their adopted home. Inspired by Lancashire having the highest rate of UFO sightings in the UK, as well as hosting one of the earliest splinter Mormon communities in the world, Piercing Brightness uses Preston and its inhabitants as a springboard to investigate religious, racial and classbased social hierarchies. Eerily beautiful, the film employs different formats and archival footage of UFO sightings to create a film that is as experimental as it is entertaining. Piercing Brightness is the debut feature film directed by acclaimed visual artist Shezad Dawood, scripted by cult novelist Kirk Lake with an original score by Makoto Kawabata of Acid Mothers Temple (Japan) and featuring music by Alexander Tucker. Piercing Brightness has been commissioned by In Certain Places as part of their programme, which examines the role of artists in the city.

Shezad Dawood Piercing Brightness 5 April–10 June 2012 Modern Art Oxford 30 Pembroke Street Oxford OX1 1BP Hours: Tuesday & Wednesday 10am–5pm Thursday–Saturday 10am–7pm Sunday 12–5pm. Admission Free. T +44 (0)1865 722733 info [at] Modern Art Oxford presents a major solo exhibition of British artist Shezad Dawood. Through new film, installation and textile-based ‘paintings, Dawood presents multi-layered narratives, which call into question our attempts to reconcile the passing of time and the creation of identity in our own lives. These works draw on influences as diverse as cosmology, science fiction and Sufism and re-imagine moments across time frames, cultures and histories. Presented in a purpose-built viewing space in the Upper Gallery, Trailer is a 15-minute, alternative edit from the artists feature-length film Piercing Brightness, which uses science fiction as a prism through which to reflect on race and migration. New Dream Machine Project is a large-scale kinetic light sculpture and Super 18 mm film that references Brion Gysins original Dream Machine – a work conceived to have an effect on the viewer similar to deep meditation or dream sleep. New Dream Machine Project acknowledges Gysins influences from Moroccan culture in the 1960s and re-imagines this iconic work for a contemporary audience. We also present a selection of Dawoods textile-based paintings. Using Saami textiles as a starting point, these works form part of the research behind the artists films and illustrate his investigation into form, meaning and context. The exhibition extends to The Yard with Rendezvous with Rama, an enigmatic constellation of neon light sculpture. Piercing Brightness is accompanied by a publication that includes texts by academic Mark Bartlett, writer Jean Fisher and Michael Stanley, Director, Modern Art Oxford.

Piercing brightness. There is absolutely no plot in this godforsaken trash. None whatsoever. Nor is there any meaningful dialog. However the wardrobe is just out of this world for sheer creativity; especially the woman with Cheerios and Froot-Loops glued to the side of her face.
The ending is just as senseless as the rest of it. This pile of junk rated at 6.2 and now it's down to 5.8.
It can only be surmised that this garbage is being voted down by people actually having viewed the movie after the cast and crew voted it up.
Avoid this moronic trash, unless severe brain pain is an uncontrollable fetish of yours. Seriously, it's bad.

Piercing Brightness is a science fiction film directed by internationally acclaimed artist Shezad Dawood. The film utilizes science fiction as a backdrop from which to contest fixed notions of race, migration and identity. The plot interweaves elements of documentary, within a character-driven narrative involving the different and changing communities in Preston, in the North of England and points to Lancashires position as having the highest UFO sighting rate and the fastest growing Mainland Chinese population in the UK. The film combines digital and analogue processes, high production values and low-fi aesthetics to tell a story through both its narrative and distortions of time brought about by experiments with the various formats used. The story begins with Jiang and Shin, a young Chinese boy and girl, who land in a spacecraft outside of Preston. They have been sent on a mission to retrieve the ‘Glorious 100 – agents who were sent to this planet millennia ago to study and observe. Living through countless lives without any scope for return, many have become corrupted, forgetting their original purpose and slowly becoming influenced by and in turn influencing their adopted home. Jiang and Shin negotiate uneasy alliances as they try to pursue their mission, constantly pursued by a hooded bike gang. The film comes to a dramatic close on the roof of the controversial brutalist structure of Preston Bus Station roof, the setting for the ‘Extraction of the Glorious 100.

Piercing Brightness is a science fiction feature film directed by internationally acclaimed artist Shezad Dawood. The film utilises science fiction as a backdrop from which to contest fixed notions of race, migration and identity. It addresses issues of time, memory and belonging through a careful interplay of mainstream science fiction and its ongoing relationship to more experimental modes of film making.

Their mission: to re-establish contact and affect the retrieval of the ‘Glorious 100 sent to earth millennia ago in human form to study and observe the development of another race.

We're being followed. I think you should put those away. Why have we come here anyway? We're blending in. Acclimatizing. Do you know where we are going? No. Idiot. We don't have any money. What is he talking about? He is a contact. He is uncorrupted. How can you be sure? I have seen it. He can be trusted. Are you sure about him? He may have been here too long. He's erratic. Yes. I remember him. Don't you? The class clown. Are you certain he's not corrupted? What would we want with food? We can't wear these. Choose something for me to wear, kid. The Glorious 100 were sent to secretly observe the birth and development of another planet for the mutual benefit of our world and their world. The return of the 100 remains the primary mission goal. This is primitive. It must take up so much time. I can't believe this problem has not been addressed. Our host seems quite taken with these earthly ways. It's possible he is not as uncorrupted as we first thought. I want to observe the humans. We should wait here where it's safe. Naseer can tend to us. No. If we return home tomorrow what stories can we tell? We have eaten food. We have watched yet more films. But we have experienced nothing. I have not even managed to light this cigarette. It's unsafe. We need to guard the stones. Naseer can look after them. We need to experience this planet. It's an opportunity that will never be repeated. Come on. just for a short while. It's foolish. What if something goes wrong? Nothing will go wrong. How could it? I wonder where they've gone? Where are they? Come on, what are you doing? Keep up. I'm going to "dance. You're what? Dance over there. Don't. Will we get there on time? Yes. Take these. Make your preparations. Take them. Hold them tighter. The Glorious 100 were sent to secretly observe the birth and development of another planet. another planet for the mutual benefit of our world and their world. They're getting closer. How close? Closer. How much further? Damn scoundrel. Moron.

Text by Asana Greenstreet People are always wishing, hoping for some sort of transformative experience from art. Gazing at a Gainsborough is all well and good, transporting the viewer back through two centuries of history. But what ought we to do when an artist takes us on a journey that we are uncomfortable with? At Modern Art Oxford, walking up the stairs strangely makes the visitor focus on the time and speed of the journey: on the distance travelled vertically, towards darkness. This fast approaching sci-fi feeling, is confirmed on entering the exhibition space: a large circular bright white seating area, and a “floating screen” playing Dawoods Trailer (2011. A man approaches each visitor carrying two crumpled plastic microporous material pieces. And then a plunge back to earth, as the realisation of being in a gallery space – the medium itself transformed – hits home as the visitor covers their feet to take a seat on a purpose built viewing platform. In the first room of the gallery Modern Art Oxford presents Trailer, a shorter edit of Dawoods feature length film Piercing Brightness, to be released this year. The title urges anticipations of a cinematic experience of a short film. 15 minutes in length, Dawood pushes the average attention span to the limit until the 10 minute mark, where, despite the self-awareness of being in the gallery, all cognitive understanding of real time is lost. A testament to its formal qualities, it is possible to spend a prolonged period with the film, watching it again, in the hope of understanding it. On being questioned about the site specificity of the films display, exhibition organiser Melanie Pocock says the artist “is interested in what happens when objects are looked at, how they morph into being by the person who is looking”. In expanding on the above, it is Dawoods use of montage, various light sources, and other cinematic devices that make for an interesting attraction to the projection of the artwork. The impressive installation of both the seating arrangements and the film are to be applauded, as they add to an immersive experience of the piece. The film Trailer ostensibly deals with real life subjects such as immigration, and identity. However, it seems the construction of any narrative that contains these themes is as much to do with the person watching the film, as they belong to the artist as the maker. This type of audience engagement with the work is interesting because, just as piercing brightness does, it conceals as much as it reveals. The textile paintings in the middle gallery are just as thought provoking. These manage to link abstraction, geometry, calligraphy and architecture together. Using acrylic to paint on vintage textiles, Dawood creates a dream-like space located within the physical material of the cloth. What the viewer sees is never explicit; however, the convergence of cultures is easily spotted in the marriage of European and Arab inspirations. The latter appears to embody the spiritual in geometric form. This is combined with references to the great 20th century modernists such as Barbara Hepworth, Paul Nash, and perhaps even Ben Nicholson, as curator Michael Stanley indicates in the exhibition catalogue. This display is a much needed break in the exhibitions development, though it feels a little static. New Dream Machine Project (2011) is a film that tries to create a reverie, promoting a hypnotic feeling within the viewer. Perhaps derived from the full length screen installation, this space does have a heightened reality to it, and once again engulfing the visitor into the film. Dawoods practice is so interesting precisely because his artworks play with the space that contains them, encouraging the viewer to become self-aware of and within their location. Shezad Dawood doesnt ask questions, nor does he attempt to offer answers to questions the visitor may have. Dont ask, just give into the experience of it. Conventionally science-fiction, this exhibition is a must see, although more compelling because Dawood plays with the traditional understanding of the genre to navigate contemporary oddities, ideas and ideologies.
