The Drowned World screening, which shows films by six different artists, will run at London’s Chisenhale Gallery on August 12.
The group screening, representing a patchwork of experimental narratives that examine current socio-political landscapes—human nature, gender, class and Existentialism—with “humour, irony and disbelief”, takes its name from a 1962 science fiction novel by English New Wave novelist J.G. Ballard.
The screening brings works by six contributing artists. French artist Philomène Hoël introduces ‘Silent Conversations’ (2014), LA-artist Daniel Shanken brings ‘Common Descent’ (2015), London-based video and performance artist Rehana Zaman screens ‘5’ (2014), Brighton artist Jasmine Johnson introduces ‘L making Pesto’ (2013), Moussa Sarr screens ‘L’appel (série Point de vue)’ (2013), and Kuwaiti artist Monira Al Qadiri – with whom we have done a two–part video feature for our Money Makes the World Go ‘Round series – screens her 2013 film, ‘SOAP’.
