Gideon Koppel: an essay

Gideon Koppel: BORTH
Chapter Arts Centre
1 - 31 May 2013

Having originally studied mathematics, Gideon Koppel went on to gain a postgraduate degree from the Slade School of Fine Art, and is today something of a filmic polymath: a prolific film maker for cinema, television and art gallery exhibition, an award-winning director of film commercials, a Professor of Film at Aberystwyth University, and an Associate Fellow at Green Templeton College, University of Oxford. In 2008, he won The Guardian’s Best First Film Award for his feature-length work, sleep furiously, a portrait of Trefeurig, a small rural Welsh village which he moved to with his parents, age 13. For Diffusion 2013, Koppel will be showing a single-screen film installation at Chapter, depicting “the wild west Wales town of Borth.”
