Conversations, Art Basel’s talks series that highlights important issues by bringing together influential art world personalities, will open on Thursday, December 4, with the Premiere Artist Talk, which this year will feature legendary American artist Lynda Benglis. Looking at new funding models of the visual arts, Friday’s Conversation will pair Dennis Scholl, Collector and Vice President, Knight Foundation, with Stephanie Pereira, International Partnership Lead at Kickstarter, plus the gallerist Jérôme Poggi from Paris. The panel discussion will be moderated by András Szántó. Conversations will also present the latest edition of Hans Ulrich Obrist’s ongoing series looking at artistic practice, entitled ‘The Artist as Curator’, with the artists Joseph Kosuth, Liu Ding, Martha Rosler, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Martha Wilson.

Salon, the open platform for shorter presentations during the afternoon, will feature artist talks, panel discussions, lectures with curators, museum directors, and artists. Performance will be a key consideration, with an artist talk with Ryan McNamara and Claire Bishop; a panel discussion with several performance artists featured in Public and Nicholas Baume; an artist talk with Chinese artist and choreographer Shen Wei; and Marina Abramović on a panel entitled ‘Materials for Immateriality’, moderated by Sam Keller, Director of Fondation Beyeler.

The potential of digital platforms – both as an artistic medium and as a market place – will be discussed in several panels across the week. On Friday, December 5, Chrissie Iles, curator at the Whitney Museum, New York will lead a talk with David Gryn, curator of Art Basel’s Film sector and artists Tabor Robak and Rachel Rose, looking at artists as digital revolutionaries. Salon will also feature a discussion focused on ‘Instagram as an Artistic Medium’ with Klaus Biesenbach, Director of MoMA PS1 and Chief Curator-at-Large at Museum of Modern Art, New York; Simon de Pury, Auctioneer, Art Dealer, New York/London; Hans Ulrich Obrist, Co-Director, Serpentine Gallery, London; Kevin Systrom, CEO and co-founder of Instagram and artist Amalia Ulman.

Panelists will include representatives from Locust Projects, Miami; SculptureCenter, New York; Delfina Foundation, London; as well as representatives of the Art Basel Crowdfunding Jury and Kickstarter.

Conversations, which is supported by Absolut, takes place daily from Thursday, December 4, to Sunday, December 7, 10am to 11.30am. Talks from the Conversations program are free to the public.

The full talks program is available at artbasel.com/miamibeach/talks.


Thursday, December 4, Premiere, Artist Talk, Lynda Benglis

Lynda Benglis, whose innovative and vivid sculptures have been challenging the art establishment for half a century, will inaugurate this year’s Conversations series. Her work is about expression of space, color, texture and substance – materials that have been widely explored in her remarkable career. But Lyndas’ art also thematizes sex, power and gender, as infamously stated with her advertisement in the ‘Artforum’ November issue of 1974, which startled the 1970s artworld and provoked unpredictable responses. Today, 40 years later, how far have we (not) progressed?

Lynda Benglis, Artist, New York/Santa Fe/East Hampton

Friday, December 5, Public/Private, New Funding Models for the Visual Arts

The conversation explores a number of pressing matters surrounding the question of funding for the arts in general and visual arts in particular, amongst the context of a booming art market. The panel will discuss possibilities to ensure that adequate resources continue to flow not only to commercially popular artists, but also to the many non-profit organizations that contribute to a healthy ecology for the visual arts.

Film: Art Basel announces 2014 program for Miami Beach

From December 3 through 7, 2014, Art Basel’s Film sector will include over 80 films and videos selected by David Gryn, director of London’s Artprojx. Gryn’s program of film and video works, drawn from the show’s participating galleries, includes work by Charles Atlas, Martin Creed, Susan Hiller, Parker Ito, Mark Leckey, Babette Mangolte, Takeshi Murata, Laure Prouvost, Alex Prager, Mark Wallinger, and a tribute to Harun Farocki, who passed away this July. In conjunction with the popular outdoor screenings in SoundScape Park on the 7,000-square-foot outdoor projection wall of the New World Center, an extended film program will be presented within Art Basel’s newly designed film viewing room inside the Miami Beach Convention Center.

Curated around the notion of Playfulness, David Gryn’s fourth selection for Film will feature a wide array of film and video works: from Susan Hiller’s scientific Resounding (Infrared) (2014) to Atsushi Kaga’s dark and quirky 2007 series of hand-drawn animations and Hans Op de Beeck’s sublime Parade (2012). A highlight of the program will pair Charles Atlas’s 1986 film Ex Romance, and a new Miami Beach-specific edit of Parker Ito’s Wipeout XL. Artist Tabor Robak and David Gryn will co-curate a series of films addressing the unearthly reverberations of the Internet, gaming, and digital magical- realism, featuring work by younger artists Jon Rafman and Oliver Laric, alongside a tribute to the late Harun Farocki. The program will also look at dance in film with works by Dara Friedman, Rashaad Newsome and the seminal filmmaker Babette Mangolte.  FILM TRAILER

Every evening from 6pm to the start of the first film screening, surround sound works by Larry Achiampong, Jennie C. Jones, Stephen Vitiello and Raed Yassin will be presented on the state-of-the arts surround sound system in SoundScape Park.

An extended selection of over 120 selected works, also curated by Gryn, will be presented for individual, viewer-directed private screening. Access is free with an entry ticket to the show. Daily Dec 3- Dec7.

On Friday, December 5, at 2pm, Art Basel’s Salon program will feature

Armchair Surfers
Running time 60′
The artists in this program place a mirror in front of us – the Armchair Surfers of the 21st century – to explore the impact of an all-encompassing digitized world on humanity. In these works humor, titillation, coolness, memories, self-absorption and otherwise quirky reflections merge with our daily consumption of social media.

In this program, Atlas’s film Ex- Romance (1986) will be paired with a special 2014 Miami-edit of Wipeout XL by Parker Ito, heightening the common ground between the artists’ incongruous interests – from Tarot to foot-fetishes.

Radio Ga Ga
Running time 62′
Radio broadcasting – the audible transmission of information through radio waves – is a powerful medium that has long influenced human events. Concepts of radio and waves will be explored in this program, bookended by works that draw from broadcasts that go unnoticed, such as Bill Balaskas’ cobbled together news bulletins and Susan Hiller’s translations of radio frequencies emitted by the Big Bang.

Running time 65′
The Night of Forevermore focuses on artists who employ cinematic and theatrical tropes: Ciprian Mureşan reconsiders Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí’s Surrealist classic Un Chien Andalou (1929) through the blockbuster animation Shrek (2001), while Jose Dávila applies his signature cutout method to Sergio Leone’s classic Spaghetti Western The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966).

Rites of Spring
Running time 62′
From historical positions, such as Babette Mangolte’s 1978 collaboration with dancer Trisha Brown, to recent works such as Rashaad Newsome’s 2014 KNOT, this program will explore the radical implications of dance. Both Miami-based artist Dara Friedman and the Canadian-born Marcel Dzama were inspired by historical dance pieces: Igor Stravinsky’s ballet Rites of Spring and Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballet. Five short animations by the young Greek artist Rania Bellou will punctuate the screenings.

Running time 70′

Artists and Work Information

arctic pull

‘Arctic Pull’ (2003), shows the artist pulling a sled on which the camera is bound, across the arctic during the dead of night.

2009 Video. Two channel HD color video installation with sound component, 4:47 min., Courtesy the Artist and Michael Klein Arts, New York, NY

A 2-channel video about the struggle between our own perception of self vs. others’ projections onto us. Shuffle also examines how we matriculate through society, often masking our insecurities, pain, longing and the internal schizophrenia of our id. Original soundtrack composed from the artist’s field recordings made in Indonesia.

Sanford Biggers (born 1970) is an interdisciplinary artist who works in film/video, installation, sculpture, music, and performance. An L.A. native, he has lived and worked in New York City since 1999. He received a BA from Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, a MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, IL and attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 1998.

In the Cold Edge examines an individual’s search for meaning at the end of the earth.  Opening with a lone figure descending into an ice cave, we follow his path as he explores the crevasses and below-ground chambers formed by an ever moving glacier.  Crawling through claustrophobic ice tunnels and lit solely by the headlamps of the climber and artist, the viewer discovers shimmering ice stalactites and immense, gravity-defying frozen formations.  Ascending above ground with the climber, the viewer is thrust into the vastness of Arctic space.  Isolated and vulnerable, the characters in Biggs’ video struggle to define and defend their sense of self in an extreme environment.  Challenged by the elements and the unknown, Biggs’ subjects (one of which is herself) find a kind of sublimity in which social time is destabilized by the power of nature, resulting in both awe and terror.  The piece ends with Biggs herself shooting off a flare into an archetypal image of the frozen north.  This act is both an aggressive assertion of power and a cry for help in a landscape where assumptions about self and reality are radically altered.

Janet Biggs is known primarily for her work in video, photography and performance.   Her work has been exhibited internationally at museums, film festivals, and art galleries including the Musee d’art contemporain de Montréal; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden; Tampa Museum of Art; Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl; Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art; Mint Museum of Art; Everson Museum of Art;  Gibbes Museum of Art; Rhode Island School of Design Museum; Vantaa Art Museum, Finland; Linkopings Konsthall, Passagen, Sweden; the Oberosterreichisches Landesmuseum, Austria; and the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, Australia, among others.  Reviews of her work have appeared in the New York Times, the New Yorker, ArtForum, ARTNews, Art in America, Flash Art, Artnet.com, and many others.  Janet Biggs is represented by CONNERSMITH., Washington, DC, and Winkleman Gallery, New York City.

VERTIKALE is created out of hundreds of crane shots from films and documentaries that were mounted and animated like a filmstrip. The video mediates a journey from the deep sea until the peaks of human civilisation and by that plays with our linear viewing patterns and causes a physical cinema experience. Life and its ambition of survival is reflected along a geographical and media referential, rising line.

Ulu Braun, working in Berlin, produces an especially effulgent kind of hyper-video, designed for installational – indeed, room-size – projection and based on a voracious comprehension of filmic culture, classic and contemporary. Marco Brambilla exhibits a similar sensibility, but Brambilla is a clear and dogged formalist, avoiding narrative in favor of citation; by contrast, it is the very sense of pictorial drama unfolding over time with which Braun plays time and again, inserting his manifold quotations into far larger, unfolding, often picaresque schemata (albeit ones that can ultimately loop around on themselves). Braun’s projections are mesmerizing first because of their stunning vividness (as well, of course, as their walk-in scale); but they keep us riveted less through incantatory repetition than through the promise of surprise, of absurd spatial juxtapositions and lunatic sequencing. Braun thinks big, even panoramically, and exploits the expansive potential of the latest video technologies to their utmost; but his is not a stentorian voice, but an orchestral one, coordinating a vast array of detail into a coherent whole.

A film shot on a train from London to Switzerland. Lake Geneva, the mist, trees and snow pass by, while a woman travels with her one year old and reflects on her own wondrous journey from singledom into motherhood.

Louise is a London born artist and film maker. Her work is largely autobiographical. She uses video, drawing and painting and is concerned with light, life, love and atmosphere. Her perspective is of course a female one.


The single channel video FIN is a short fragment from the end credits of François Truffaut’s La Sirène du Mississipi. The excerpt features a couple walking hand-in-hand in a bleak, snowy landscape away from the viewer, who can hear their footsteps and a wind that suggests suspense. At one point the female trips but beyond that little else happens, the end is delayed; FIN is slowed down so that the end is never suspended. The work plays with the expectations of cinematic and linear time and offers suspense and unfulfilled expectation as opposed to narrations usual completion.

Eli Cortiñas was born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and currently lives and works in Berlin. Having studied at the European Film College in Denmark the artist attended the Academy of Media Arts Cologne. Her work was most recently included in Videonale 14, the festival for contemporary video at the Kunstmuseum Bonn, The Latino Video Art Festival of New York, video_dumbo NY, From Madonna to Madonna at Domus Artium (DA2), Salamanca, Spain. Towards the end of 2013 Dial M for Mother will be presented at Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Ludwighafen, Germany. The artist’s most recent exhibition was at ROKEBY, London, where she will have a further solo exhibition having been selected for the Spain Now! festival in OCtober 2013. Eli Cortiñas has just been awarded the 2014 Villa Massimo fellowship.

A Mystery Play Production Still I (Ascension) med

For “A Mystery Play”, Dawood reprises his interest in Buster Keaton as well as his connection to Harry Houdini, via the Vaudeville Circuit of the 1920s, which coincidentally included Winnipeg, with both performers having performed at the Pantages Playhouse, which is still in use as the Playhouse Theatre. The new work was staged and filmed between the Playhouse, the Manitoba Legislative Building, the Winnipeg Zoo’s lion cage, and various outdoor locations. Drawing on research into the Masonic symbolism inherent in the Legislative Building, parallel ideas of magic, or visual sleight-of-hand encompassed in the work of both Keaton and Houdini, the film also maps out various other histories and narratives contained within Winnipeg and Canada. Historic figures are introduced, for example, Mademoiselle Adgie, the burlesque dancer who performed with lions for the opening gala of the Pantages Playhouse and Canadian magician, Dai Vernon, known as “the man who fooled Houdini.”

The film itself is an atmospheric black and white short, of thirteen minutes in length, with the action (a lyrical interweaving of the plausible connections between the various characters and the city), intercut with the various stages of initiation incorporated into the architecture of the Legislative Building. The film builds to a final climactic scene, restaging one of the key stunts from Keaton’s classic 1928 Steamboat Bill Jr., where a house appears to spiral down to the ground in a storm, and Keaton steps through the door, thus bringing together the strands of architecture and screen magic.

Shezad Dawood was born in London in 1974 and trained at Central St Martin’s and the Royal College of Art before undertaking a PhD at Leeds Metropolitan University. Dawood works across many different forms of media, and much of his practice involves curating and collaboration, frequently working with other artists to build on and create unique networks of critically engaged discursive circles. His collaborative Feature film (2008) relocated the action of a traditional western to the English country-side, slipping into other sub-genres such as the zombie-flick, and Wagnerian opera (and features cameos from artists Jimmie Durham and David Medalla). Insha’allah 2009 restaged Beckett within Islamic immigrant communities in Milan. Dawood’s work has been exhibited internationally. He currently lives and works in London, where he is Senior Lecturer and Research Fellow in Experimental Media at the University of Westminster.


City of Nature, weaves together excerpts from popular films, ranging from Fitzcarraldo to Twin Peaks in which nature is the only character featured onscreen.  These short clips are edited together to form what the artist calls a “video collage” or seamless montage, before being translated through freehand, computer assisted digital animation.  The resulting animated video stands as a visually striking and original work containing subtle, but deliberate echoes of iconic cultural moments embedded in our collective unconscious.  In much the same way that Madison Square Park presents a cultivated and aestheticized side of nature, wildlife and green space amidst the urban landscape of central Manhattan, City of Nature examines the ways in which popular culture presents aestheticized images of the natural work, “unnatural” visions of nature that embed themselves in our cultural memory and media landscape more deeply than we may consciously know.

Kota Ezawa is a German-born, San Fransisco-based video artist and illustrator who creates simple, graphic illustrations over film footage to produce short, witty narrative videos. Kota Ezawa has had numerous solo shows in museums across America, including Medley, Wexner Center for the Arts, 2009; Lennon Sontag Beuys, St. Louis Art Museum, 2008, Artpace, San Antonio, 2006 and Matrix 154, Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, CT, 2005. Ezawa has been included in group exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Modern Art New York, Berkeley Art Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as the 5th Seoul International Biennale of Media Art and the 2004 Shanghai Biennale. His recent publications include Odessa Staircase Redux, (ECU Press/JRP Ringier, 2010), and The History of Photography Remix, (Nazraeli Press, 2006). He received a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award in 2003, a SECA Art Award from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 2006 and a Eureka Fellowship in 2010. Ezawa lives and works in San Francisco.  He is represented by the Haines Gallery, San Franciso and Murray Guy Gallery, New York.

Judges' Cabin

Both Perfect Mountain and Leap after The Great Ecstasy are filmed in the same alpine village, Engelberg, where Manchot is working on an extended body of work. Both works look at the relation between the natural and artifice in our human search for a brief moment of perfection.

Melanie Manchot is a London-based artist who explores portraiture as a performative and participatory practice. Working with photography, film and video, her projects often propose constructed events or situations in public spaces and form engaging explorations into our individual and collective identities. Manchot’s work has been exhibited internationally, with solo presentations at Haus Am Waldsee, Berlin; The Photographers’ Gallery, London; Focalpoint Gallery, Southend-on-Sea; Kunsthaus Mettmann, Duesseldorf; and Cornerhouse, Manchester. She has contributed to numerous group exhibitions, including the 52nd Venice Biennale and the first Moscow Biennale.

Night Moves, 2012 Pro REs digital video with sound 6:01 (looped) Edition of 5. In Murata’s new video, a collaboration with Billy Grant, computer generated scans are utilized to recreate his every day environment in high tech 3D. The video starts in his studio, where his computer, desk and chair are “haunted” – dissolving and reforming in a myriad of mirrored shapes, going from recognizable to abstract to obliterated. The scans blend with Murata’s own computer rendered fragments, further emphasizing the high and low, real and unreal. The result can be seen as an homage to both Walt Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Bruce Nauman’s Mapping the Studio.

Takeshi Murata produces extraordinary digital works—videos, loops, installations, and electronic music—that refigure the experience of animation. His innovative practice and constantly evolving processes range from intricate computer-aided, hand-drawn animations to exacting manipulations of the flaws, defects, and broken code in digital video technology. Whether altering appropriated footage from cinema (B movies, vintage horror films), or creating Rorschach-like fields of seething color, form, and motion, Murata produces visions that redefine the boundaries between abstraction and recognition. Sinuous, sensual, and sometimes violent, Murata’s synaesthetic experiments in hypnotic perception appear at once seductively organic and totally digital.

Murata was born in 1974 in Chicago. He graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1997 with a BFA in Film/Video/Animation. Murata has exhibited at the MoMA, New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, among others. In 2007, he had a solo exhibition, Black Box: Takeshi Murata, at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. Other recent solo exhibitions were held at Vox Populi Gallery, Philadelphia, and Ratio 3, San Francisco. Murata lives in Saugerties, New York.

In Mariele Neudecker’s ‘Winterreise’ Schubert’s song cycle has been used as a basis for a film-project using locations along the 60th parallel north. It is a compilation of 24 short films that exists as a live performance version and a gallery version. We have selected one area.

Mariele Neudecker is known for creating atmospheric alternative realities in glass vitrines. She uses a broad range of media including sculpture, photography, installation and film. Neudecker addresses sublime, romantic views of landscape and the human interest in, and relationship to it. She presented her solo show Over and Over, Again and Again at Tate St Ives in 2004. Her international exhibitions include creating a permanent museum installation This Thing Called Darkness, in 2008, at Arts Towanda, Towanda, Japan. In 2009, she undertook her first visual artist residency at Alderburgh Music and participated in the GSK Contemporary 2009 – Earth: Art of a Changing World, at the Royal Academy of Arts, London. She was shortlisted for the Fourth Plinth 2010 with ‘It’s Never Too Late And You Can’t Go Back’ a fictional mountain landscape which flipped and reversed the shape of Britain and in 2011 she was invited to spend three month at the Headlands Centre for the Arts, San Francisco (USA).

The black parts of the video turn off the light of the projector – a vanishing image.

Johanna Reich works in the field of video art. It focuses on the tension between the objectivity of the digitally processed image and the emergence of sensuality and poetry. Their compositions are independent sculptures and engage by editing the soundtrack in the room. Johanna Reich studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Münster with Guillaume Bijl, Andreas Köpnick and Peter Schumbrutzki, at the Academy of Fine Arts in Hamburg with Gerd Roscher and Wim Wenders, and at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona. She is a master student of Andreas Köpnick and a member of the artist group treibeis. Johanna Reich lives and works in Cologne.


Of Water and Ice is a composition for string quartet and video that evolved out of Paul D. Miller’s large-scale multimedia work Sinfonia Antarctica. Of Water and Ice is a music/video exploration of the composition of ice and water and our relationship to the vanishing environment of the arctic poles.

Paul D. Miller (born 1970), known by his stage name DJ Spooky, That Subliminal Kid, is a Washington DC-born electronic and experimental hip hop musician whose work is often called by critics or his fans as “illbient” or “trip hop”. He is a turntablist, a producer, a philosopher, and an author. He borrowed his stage name from the character The Subliminal Kid in the novel Nova Express by William S. Burroughs. He is a Professor of Music Mediated Art at the European Graduate School and is the Executive Editor of Origin Magazine.

Jaan Toomik (born 2 October 1961 in Tartu) is an Estonian video artist, painter and award-winning filmmaker. In the Estonian art world Toomik received recognition as a painter from the late 1980s and from the early 1990s as an installation and video artist. The critics often refer to him internationally as the most well-known contemporary artist from Estonia mainly due to his short video works that have received wide international acclaim (e.g. Father and Son, 1998). He has participated at the São Paulo Biennale (1994), ARS ‘95 (1995), Manifesta 1 (1996), Venice Biennale (1997; 2003), 4th berlin biennial of contemporary art (2006), Ostalgia (New Museum, NY, 2011) etc


“an emission of light that shines from the darkness, having special significants as metaphor and allegory in the philosophy of life…”

The art film “Luminescence origins” is the first draft shot of Luminescence. It is a different piece from “Luminescence”, it is to be considered like the piece at the origin of the full scale “Luminescence” which is under development.

The collaborative poise between the artists approximates a kind of collective synesthesia, where each artist is able to create, express and design with a sense of image, motion, colour and sound, in ways that enhance the creative partnership. Luminescence and the invocations of meaning and experience are felt implicitly through the frequency, energy and vibration that each actions emits and evokes. The correspondence of their trajectories are enabled and mobilized through the creation and performance of art; being at once conceptual and representational at the same time.

This work opens portals in the imagination through artistic expression which interprets the working of consciousness and sensual mindfulness through the language of art.

Verbier 3-D Presents ‘Mutations’: 27 July 2013

On the 27th of July 2013, Verbier 3-D presents ‘Mutations’ in Verbier. The event epitomises 3-D’s appetite for innovation, with artists at the forefront of influencing and changing the shape of contemporary art globally. As well as a photographic exhibition at Médran Ticket Office (from the 20th of July to the 4th of August), there will be an Artists Talk on the 27th of July inviting the public to listen to the guest artists discuss their interpretation of the theme of ‘Mutations’ and how they express it in their art.

Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky: That Subliminal Kid and David Gryn, Founder of Artprojx will be joined by Sanford Biggers, eminent artist and Assistant Professor at Columbia University’s Visual Arts program and Kiki Thompson, Chief Executive and co-founder of Verbier 3-D.

More info:

Blessed Blessed Oblivion by Jumana Manna

Inspired by Kenneth Anger’s Scorpio Rising (1963), BLESSED BLESSED OBLIVION weaves together a portrait of male thug culture in East Jerusalem, manifested in barbershops, auto shops and bodybuilding. At the same time psychologizing and seduced by her subject, the artist finds herself in a double bind, a dilemma that resonates with the muddled desire that animates her protagonist as he drifts from abject rants to declamations of heroic poetry or unashamed self-praise.

Jumana Manna (born in New Jersey, lives and works in Jerusalem and Berlin) uses primarily film/video and sculpture to explore historical narratives, nationalism and subcultural communities. Her films are attempts at weaving together portraits of morally dubious characters or events, and her sculptural practice employs a language of minimalism and abstraction to reformulate familiar objects into a state of ambiguity, navigating between negation and seduction. Jumana Manna is represented by CRG Gallery, New York.

Happy Birthday to a Beautiful Woman by Mickalene Thomas

Internationally acclaimed artist Mickalene Thomas presented her first documentary film “HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN” during her solo exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum in Fall 2012. The film is a celebration of Thomas’s mother and muse, Sandra Bush, who has been the subject of numerous photographs and paintings by the artist. “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” explores Sandra’s memories and dreams, her life experiences, including her personal struggles and recent illness, and her hopes for the present and future. Her interviews are filled with poignancy, and old photographs and recordings of Sandra singing with her family add texture to this intimate portrait of “Mama Bush.”

Marker & Echo Park by Susanna Wallin

Marker: One thousand reindeer are left running wild in the northern woods of Sweden. They once belonged to Anna-Sara’s dad. In an act to take care of what has been in order for something new to be able to start, she goes out to find them. Set on the periphery of a Sami community, in the middle of the night, the film follows Anna-Sara on her journey towards Reindeer Dell in Kraja. Marker is an impressionistic narrative on loss and imagination: a calling for someone who is gone, in an act to continue where something stopped. Characters are situated between real scenarios and invented ones, past and present. Funded by Arts Council England with the support of Film London’s Artists Moving Image Network.

Echo Park: Set inside a theme park, the film combines several amusement rides into one audio visual experience of time. Funded by FLAMIN London, The Arts Council England and Channel 4. Set inside an amusement park, entertainment is explored in an attempt to shut out thought.

Susanna Wallin’s work often lends from fact and fiction at once, merging actual scenarios with fictive ones in new narratives on screen. Ritual, dream and a distrust in language are some of her recurring themes. She has been the recipient of a number of commissions and awards, including London Artists Film and Video Award, The Jury Price at Clermont Ferrand and commissions from UK Film Council, Channel 4 and Arts Council England. Originally from Sweden, she lives and works in London and New York.

14th, 16th, 21st, 23rd May

at 6.45 pm

at Hackney Picturehouse

 270 Mare Street, London E8 1HE

Students from the Curating Contemporary Art MA programme at the Royal College of Art present a series of four film screenings entitled Bodies without Organs. Inspired by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s notion, ‘the body without organs,’ these four programmes refer us to the sensory structures, rhythms and logics which underlie appearances. The programme explores the experimental camera’s ability to deterritorialise and defamiliarise, to reveal invisible worlds, forms and meanings that extend beyond the literal bodies that we inhabit everywhere and are part of.

By taking a different ‘body’ as its starting point, each programme will explore how artists and filmmakers have used the camera to deconstruct the relation of subject to object that binds our everyday perception. Through a rich variety of contemporary and historical material, Bodies without Organs aims to transport its audience to a realm of flux, instability and changing intensities.

Booking recommended: Tickets are £6 per screening, £5 concessions

THE SITE – Tuesday 14th May, 6.45pm

This programme, including films by Arthur Lipsett, Patrick Keiller and Natasha Mendonca, explores the way in which the movements of parts (animate or inanimate) within a metropolis or site form a living and breathing set of collective rhythms. It looks at different ways in which the camera tracks moments of expansion and contraction, rising and collapse, cohesion and fragmentation.

Bridges Go Round, Shirley Clarke, 1958
a-b-city, Dieter Hormel and Brigitte Bühler, 1985
21-87, Arthur Lipsett, 1964
The End, Patrick Keiller, 1986
Jan Villa, Natasha Mendonca, 2010

Ticket holders for ‘The Site’ will receive a complimentary beer courtesy of Harviestoun Brewery.

THE VOICE – Thursday 16th May, 6.45pm

Featuring work by Shirin Neshat, Beatrice Gibson, and Turner Prize nominee, Laure Prouvost, this programme considers how sound becomes a protagonist – how it moves beyond the camera’s visual field and into a different realm of meaning. Here, voices resonate beyond their source, adhering to a new logic and narrative by deconstructing and disrupting the linear.

Turbulent, Shirin Neshat, 1998

THE PULSE – Tuesday 21st May, 6.45pm

This selection of films from artists including Maya Deren, Malcom Le Grice, Guy Maddin and Gunvor Nelson, looks at the pulse or rhythmic movement within a film and asks how that movement can control or emancipate a narrative (and our perception of it). Techniques such as abstraction, repetition and layering connect all these films — challenging and deepening our sense of reality. The screening will include a special 35mm screening of Daïchi Saïto’s Trees of Syntax, Leaves of Axis, a first time showing in London.

Send Me to the ‘Lectric Chair, Guy Maddin, 2009

THE FALL – Thursday 22nd May, 6.45pm

Featuring works by John Smith, Emily Richardson and Cyprien Gaillard, this programme questions what happens when structures collapse and individual voices lose their sense of fixed locality. These films explore the potentiality of architectural frameworks (specifically those of modernist design) to encase individuals and test how traces or memories can exist beyond these ostensibly solid structures.

Blight, John Smith, 1994-6,
Block, Emily Richardson, 2005
