The surround sound program starts at 6pm until 8pm and repeats each of the days, this is a compilation of sound artworks, played nightly during the fair from 6pm until 8pm, featuring artists commissioned to create or reform work into surround sound installations. This year’s artists include: Molly Palmer, Sussanah Stark, Ain Bailey, Zoe Buckman, Jonathan Montague and A.K. Burns.

The Film program starts at 8pm each night with a two hour compilation, repeated daily, of 28 moving image artworks screened under the title ‘Best Dressed Chicken in Town’.

All the films in this varied and exciting program demonstrate the power of music to attract an audience, keep it engaged, elicit suspense and tug at the heartstrings. Similar to classical symphony works, the order of the films builds up to a crescendo creating an awe-inspiring magic derived from the works in their entirety.

Aura Satz

Over 4 days there were so many great moments, pieces and a general vibrant, creative intensity at the ICA.

Shija Azari"s Windows screened by Artprojx

As a young artist it was a place of discovery, aspiration, idea nurturing and artistcally forming and it really feels like that it is possible again.

Street fighter battles in David Blandy's day

The works and projects each day worked on so many levels beautiful, aesthetic, rough around the edges, challenging, musical, poetic, engaging, audience enchanting, scary, awkward and much more.

Tai Shani's rehearsals

Over the 4 days the ICA proved it can be a creative hub, exhibiting ground-breaking, experimental, risk and chance taking art – enabling and nurturing the artists to do so.

Tai Shani's performance

All the artists put their vision on the line – creating wonderful aesthetic, aspirational and challenging feasts and treats for all the large numbers of visitors.

boyleANDshaw's The Scuttler

The staff at the ICA, care passionately about delivering the work and joined in to great supportive effect – they all played their part in making it such a great few days..

ICA – LIVE WEEKEND 1 – PERFORMANCE etc …

Produced by David Gryn

Tai Shani

TAI SHANI
‘Screentest: R-R-Rhine Peacetime 82′
Performance: 7:30pm & 9:15pm Main Gallery (30mins)

On a sound stage, an actress is being filmed auditioning for a role in a fictitious film based on a strange, actual sequence of events that took place in West Germany in the hot summer of 1982. Over the course of 25 days in three unrelated, tragic incidents members of the US and UK peacetime army stole tanks and rampaged through various German towns and countryside leaving behind a trail of destruction, ultimately driving themselves over bridges and into trains to their deaths. The actress Maya Lubinsky is auditioning for the role of Katja Riemann, a young woman who gets run over by a tank driven by Private Charles S. Keefer, her boyfriend.

In this expanding screentest which occurs on a fractured timeline, the lives and fictions of Katja Riemann, Maya Lubinsky and Maya’s body double overflow and hemorrhage into each other creating a spiraling narrative told through film, heroines, anti-heroines, animated props, an overbearing narrator and a Neanderthal from a parallel universe.

The performance is accompanied by a live score by David J. Smith (Guapo, Stargazers Assistant and Amal Gamal Ensemble)

ICA Theatre Film & Video Screenings selected by Artprojx

2pm Jo Mitchell – Concerto for Voice & Machinery II

3.25pm Mark Leckey – Cinema-in-the-Round

ICA Theatre Film & Video Screenings selected by Tai Shani

4.30pm
Cartune Xprez
Part psychedelic insurrection, part cartoon road show, they harness the energies of video artists who remix commercial imagery to the extent of anarchy and animate their way out of Sunday Morning Cartoons. Previous shows have included Paper Rad, Bruce Bickford, Takeshi Murata, and Shana Moulton, who have since been featured in the Whitney Biennial, the MOMA in New York, the Sundance Film Festival, and many others.

6pm
Symbiopsychotaxiplasm by William Greaves, United States, 1968, 75 minutes

In his one-of-a-kind fiction/documentary hybrid Symbiopsychotaxiplasm Take One, director William Greaves presides over a beleaguered film crew in New York’s Central Park, leaving them to try to figure out what kind of movie they’re making. A couple enacts a break-up scenario over and over, a documentary crew films a crew filming the crew, locals wander casually into the frame: the project defies easy description. Yet this wildly innovative sixties counterculture landmark remains one of the most tightly focused and insightful movies ever made about making movies.

Jen Wu

8:00pm
Jen Wu – Half Light, 5mins 2009

The dead weight of a sleeper drifts between the syncopal darkness of the cinematic night and the waning daylight of a world that feels no less other. Shifting between modes of cinematic identification, inhabiting surrogate bodies and self obliteration in the face of the familiar Half Light sensitively makes manifests a mesmeric, recondite and affective territory.
&

Damon Packard

Damon Packard – Spacedisco One, 2007, 58min
To sum it up. “Spacedisco One” will not only shatter your perception of reality as we know it, it will break it in half ad infinitum, pairs of two, so am I, pairs of two, so are you, until the soul’s binary code is revealed and, biting its own tail, destroyed in the blink of a serpent’s eye. You will melt like a marshmallow in the furnace of hell. And if everything has been said and if everything has been done, we still have the possibility to make a movie about it, a sequel to reality.

10pm
Jim Hollands – Here, 2007, 70min

(3D glasses will be supplied)
A hallucinogenic dissolution between the screen and the viewer forming a radical new art agenda for the 21st century. Here is a seventy-minute remix of a rarely seen existing work written by Joe Orton, called ‘The Erpingham Camp’. Originally screened on TV in 1966, it has been experimentally remixed in sound, image and words, with subtitles, and partly in anaglyphic (red/cyan) 3D. Large parts of the work operate under flicker frequencies of 8-13hz, and as such are viewable by epileptics or those prone to seizure at their own risk.

Music:
DJ set in Bar from 7pm
Owen Hills (of Wooden Spoon and Dollboy) . Kraut and cosmic musics

Tai Shani (1976) is an artist living and working in London. Fantastical and televisual, Tai Shani’s performances and films contain cartoon props and extravagantly costumed large casts of archetypes and pseudo-historical characters drawn from popular culture and counterculture mythologies. Referencing early science fiction, Greek tragedy and theatrical spectacle they are accompanied by voice over soundtracks reminiscent of radio plays that alternate between familiar fictional styles and narratives and self-reflexive texts that delve into the mechanics of simulatory channels and their agency. Often dramatising historical phenomena, Shani seeks to underpin the axis point of their transformation from historical to fantastical. Chaotic, a-historical and non-linear in form, Shani’s work explores fictional strategies, the cinematic corruption of memory as well as conflicting temporal structure in the ‘real’ and the mediated.

Recent Tai Shani exhibitions and performances include:
The Herzeliya Biennial, Israel; The Royal Academy, London; The Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Spike Island + Arnolfini, Bristol; A Foundation, London; Whitechapel Gallery, London; ARTIS Centre for Fine Arts Hertogenbosch, Stedelijk Museum Hertogenbosch; Liverpool Biennial 08; Artprojx at Rio Cinema, Dalston. She also writes and performs music as Cherry Mash Cherry.

TURNTABLE TABLEAU, a film performance.
Aura Satz performs a talking book ventriloquist act, followed by a live soundtrack to her film on gramophone grooves. The hypnotic footage of spinning sound patterns is accompanied by a spiralling multivocal counterpart, a cornocupia of voices recounting a tale of mourning and technology, a forensic love-story of sorts in which the voices overlap, echo and pre-empt each other. The cinematic stage is animated by a voice-over carousel, a spinning tableau vivant, a canon of voices amplified by horns set on a rotating stage.
BRIAN CATLING – 9 May
Mr Rapehead- a new live performance
Mr Rapehead is new 30 minute work made for the ICA extends his obsessive manipulation of the mysterious and enigmatic atmospheres by interrogating them with threats of violence and humour.

DAVID BLANDY INFO
David Blandy (b. 1976, London) lives and works in London, using video, performance and comics to address identity formation and its relationship to popular culture. Blandy searches for his cultural position in the world, often useing humour to ask just how much the self is formed by its immersion in the world of records, films and television, and whether the answers to life’s questions can be found in these mass-produced objects. He has exhibited at venues such as The Bluecoat as part of the 2008 Liverpool Biennial, Turner Contemporary, Margate, The Baltic, Gateshead, Spike Island, Bristol, 176, London, Artprojx Space, Platform China Project Space, Beijing, and Museu da Imagem e do Som de São Paulo, Brazil and at various international screenings by Artprojx. His work is distributed by LUX.

LIVE AT THE ICA

BRIAN CATLING, AURA SATZ, TERRY SMITH & PROPOSITIONS

SUNDAY 9 MAY

PRODUCED BY DAVID GRYN

see Facebook for more info and the Brian Catling trailer

TERRY SMITH

The Foundling: DRUNK AND DISORDERLY

The final part in a quartet of performances. The last chapter of the Foundling project Drunk and Disorderly will be workshopped as part of an open rehearsal and performed at the ICA. This forms the last of four distinct parts, which includes Lost and Found (performed at the Tete a Tete Opera festival in London 2008), Hide and Seek, (performed at the The Foundling Museum 2009) and Sticks and Stones (performed at St George’s Church in Venice 2009). The video works include texts by the writer Mel Gooding spoken by the actor Julian Bird. This performance includes Linda Hirst, Miguel Tantos, Oliver Coates and Danny Standing.

AURA SATZ

TURNTABLE TABLEAU, a film performance

Aura Satz performs a talking book ventriloquist act, followed by a live soundtrack to her film on gramophone grooves. The hypnotic footage of spinning sound patterns is accompanied by a spiralling multivocal counterpart, a cornocupia of voices recounting a tale of mourning and technology, a forensic love-story of sorts in which the voices overlap, echo and pre-empt each other. The cinematic stage is animated by a voice-over carousel, a spinning tableau vivant, a canon of voices amplified by horns set on a rotating stage.

She has performed, exhibited and screened her work nationally and internationally, including FACT (Liverpool), Site Gallery (Sheffield), Galleria Civica di Arte Contemporanea di Trento (Italy), De La Warr Pavilion (Bexhill-on-Sea), the Zentrum Paul Klee (Switzerland), Whitechapel Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), the AV festival (Newcastle) and the IV Bienal of Jafre in Spain. In 2008 she had solo shows at Beaconsfield Gallery and Artprojx Space, and her film ‘Automamusic’ has since been screened by Artprojx at Tate Britain, Site Gallery, LOOP festival Barcelona.

BRIAN CATLING
