Jasmine Johnson is presenting new video work A Perfect Instrument (Kristina) at London’s Genesis Cinema on October 25.
The project was made during the artists’ residency at Vilnius’ RUPERT and coincides with the artists’ commission Upright at Jerwood’s Project Space (running to December 10).
The film is shot around various locations of the city, and follows the Lithuanian actress Kristina Savickytė during her workshops and rehearsals, exploring “the extent to which both an individual and a place must bend and perform for shifting contexts” and is the fourth in a series of video portraits by Johnson.
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.
