The Going Hard group screening is on at Birmingham’s Grand Union on November 4.
Presented by Mitra Saboury for the gallery’s Digbeth First Friday film screenings programme, the event comes as part of the London- and Los Angeles-based artist’s current solo exhibition running at the space, called Pulling Walls. Featuring works by artists Derek Paul Boyle, Aaron Graham, Tamara Johnson, Paul Pescador, and Dominic Watson among others, the selection of films builds on the show where Saboury takes her background in neuroscience to explore “the physical and psychological impacts of space upon the body” through sculptural and video works.
Also included are pieces by Evariste Maïga, Alee Peoples, Mike Stoltz, Kelli Sims, Pascual Sisto, and Sabina Tupan, all screening in relation to the “subjects, materials and strategies” the artist herself used in the making of her own work.
