Neïl Beloufa @ ICA, Sep 23 – Nov 16

, 23 September 2014

Neïl Beloufa‘s solo exhibition Counting on People is on at London’s ICA, opening September 23 and running to November 16.

Billed as the first “UK institutional exhibition”, Beloufa’s 2007 film ‘Kempinski’ was exhibited earlier this year as part of The Sunday Painter’s Fulfilment Centre group show in London. This one will feature two new films, including ‘Data for Desire’ (2014) and ‘VENGEANCE’ (2014), along with a commission a from Palais du Tokyo,  ‘La domination du monde (World Domination, 2012)’,  as well as ICA and Canada’s The Banff Centre co-commission ‘Home is Whenever I’m with You’ (2014).

All these forms explore socialisation via networks by disrupting an audience relationship with the screen in a show spanning the Theatre and Lower Gallery of the ICA; a collection of new sculptures and live video works looking at the role of images in constructing our environment, physically and virtually.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an Educator’s Tour by ICA curator Matt Williams on September 24, a Culture Now discussion with Beloufa on September 26 and a screening of Left Bank film maker Alain Resnais’ 1963 film Muriel on October 1, as selected by the artist for by the artist for Artists’ Film Club.
