Dreams, trauma and desire in Meshes of the Afternoon at Roman Road, Jun 6 – Aug 20

, 31 May 2017

The Meshes of the Afternoon group exhibition at London’s Roman Road opens June 6 and is running to August 20.

The show is guest curated by Attilia Fattori Franchini, and includes work by Nils Alix-Tabeling, Chelsea Culprit, Maria Gorodeckaya, Hanne Lippard and Gina Pane, with a performance on the opening night by Emily Jones

The show takes its inspiration from Maya Deren’s film Meshes of the Afternoon (1943) and asks the invited artists to reflect and reinterpret the work and its “associative power to reflect on femininity, dream state, trauma and desire.” The film wanders in a circular narrative, getting lost within the trance-like soundtrack that creates a surreal and dream-like vibe.
