Jasmine Johnson @ Genesis Cinema, Oct 25

24 October 2016

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 @ Chisenhale Gallery, Aug 12

10 August 2015

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 twopart video feature for our Money Makes the World Go ‘Round series – screens her 2013 film, ‘SOAP’.
