London’s Carroll/Fletcher is presenting A Group Exhibition of Artists’ Film, running January 16 to February 22.
Featuring videos by Aleksandra Domanović, Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz, Mika Taanila and Michael Joaquin Grey, among others, the exhibition explores the fundamentals of film making through experimentation across technique, narrative and the historical and cultural context of its references. That’s why Domanović’s splicing of Woody Allen’s Annie Hall audio with Getty Images stock photos in ‘Anhedonia’ (2009) and Bourdy & Lorenz’s ‘To Valerie Solanas and Marilyn Monroe in Recognition of Their Desperation’ (2013) -along with its multi-layered references reaching across from Pauline Oliveros’ avant-garde composition to SCUM founder Valerie Solanas -are so relevant.
See the Carroll/Fletcher website for details. **
