10th Anniversary Screening Artists’ Film International

7 – 17 September 2017

In 2007 Whitechapel Gallery closed for a major expansion leaving only the auditorium open for visitors. This became the launch pad for a pioneering collaborative programme dedicated to artists’ films. Ten years later Artists’ Film International has grown from five to 15 partners, pooling local knowledge to exchange moving image works across the globe, from Kabul to Hong Kong, Tromsø to Buenos Aires. The anniversary screening will highlight a work from each partner, celebrating some of the most exciting and diverse artists working in film, video and animation over the last decade.

The works are screened in chronological order on a loop. It will run through the programme twice in full on Thursdays when we are open late. Please pick up a free leaflet in-gallery for the full programme details or see below for time-slots.

(from the series Early Baggage, 2001-03)
Single-channel video
20 mins
Courtesy Sammlung Goetz
Selected by Ballroom Marfa, Marfa, Texas (AFI, 2008)

In his video, Ryan Trecartin interrogates heteronormative views on gender identity, as well as traditional notions of procreation. Trecartin’s alternative, technicoloured creation story debunks ideas about self-optimization and success connected with the ‘productivity’ and propagates sex and love without the need for making babies.

Nathalie Djurberg (b.1978, Sweden)
Florentin, 2004
Clay animation, digital video
3:36 mins
Music by Hans Berg
Courtesy of Lisson Gallery, London; Zach Feuer Gallery, New York and Gió Marconi, Milan
Selected by Moderna Museet, Stockholm (AFI, 2008)

Djurberg works with plasticine figures and stop-frame animation techniques to create ‘children’s films for adults only’, fairy tales gone awry. The humour in her films is both dark and absurd; they are accompanied by jarring, fairground-like musical scores, which heighten the sense of psychological unravelling.

Shahryar Nashat (b. 1975, Switzerland)
The Regulating Line, 2005
SD video
3:40 mins
Courtesy of Rodeo Gallery, London and David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles
Made with the kind collaboration of the Musée du Louvre.
Cast: Frédéric Dessains
Selected by Kunsthaus Zurich (AFI, 2008)

In his work Nashat examines the mechanisms of power inherent in the structure of the museum and how these shape the meaning of art. Invited to participate at the Venice Biennale in 2008 Nashat made a playful video of a gymnast in the Louvre, one of the world’s most visited museums in order ‘to breech the economy within with the museum functions’.

Lene Berg (b.1965, Norway)
The Man in the Background, 2006
DV-Cam and 8mm transferred to DVD
20 mins
Selected by Henie Onstad Art Centre, Oslo (AFI, 2008)

This work features home-movie footage of Michael Josselson, the director of the Congress for Cultural Freedom (CCF) (1950-67) and also a covert CIA-agent, on holiday with his wife Diana in 1958. It addresses western cultural politics and propaganda during the Cold War, in particular the role played by artists and intellectuals. Here, images are repeated with different voice-overs, creating a multi-faceted narrative which questions accepted versions of truth and reality.

Nova Paul (b.1973, New Zealand)
Pink and White Terraces, 2006
Video
10 mins
Selected by City Art Gallery, Wellington, NZ (AFI, 2009)

Paul’s video was made using the early cinematic device of three-colour separation, a process which makes visible three periods of time simultaneously. The red, green and blue layers echo the famous now-destroyed geological accretions on North Island, New Zealand known as the Terraces. Nova Paul builds up a picture of everyday life, where the overlapping images record both place and time.

12.00-13.00

Elizabeth Price (b. 1966, United Kingdom)
The House of Mr X, 2007
HD video
20 mins
Selected by Whitechapel Gallery, London (AFI, 2014)

Taking as its subject the home of an anonymous art collector and cosmetics magnate, which was designed and built in the late 1960s, Price’s film is a study of desire, consumption and the fetishisation of objects. She takes us on a journey though the immaculately preserved house accompanied by a soundtrack recalling 1960s girl groups and the allure of make-up advertising.

Wang Jianwei (b. 1958, China)
Symptom, 2007
Single channel video
32 mins
Selected by Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art, Beijing (AFI, 2008)

Symptom combines elements of film, theatre, opera and performance to present a highly orchestrated series of tableaux vivant in which present-day farmers and ancient warriors, references to Song dynasty epics and Greek myths, rural village life and contemporary urban experience collide. Choreographed around stasis and movement, acting as metaphors for amnesia and possibility, the artist suggests the tension between the two is a force shaping China today.

Jalal Toufic (b. 1962, Lebanon)
Lebanese Performance Art; Circle: Ecstatic; Class: Marginalized; Excerpt 3 , 2007
Video
5 mins
Selected by Beirut Art Centre, Lebanon (AFI, 2010)

This work examines Islamic rituals of grief, remembrance and penance and their relationship to collective memory and history. It is made up of footage of Ashura, an annual ritual marking the massacre of Hussain Ibn Ali, where Shia men are led by a Imam into a frenzy of tears and chest beating. Through repetition and alternating speeds, Toufic uses ritual and the power of communal worship as a way to explore the philosophical and political framework for producing and showing work.

Basualdo’s fixed camera documents an art installation in Austria of two semi-transparent curtains on both sides of a window. As they move, the curtains offer a glimpse of what lies beyond.

Creation Song, 2014
Video
7:17 mins
Selected by CCAA – Centre for Contemporary Arts Afghanistan, Kabul (AFI, 2015)

Krisis, 2016

Selected by National Centre for Contemporary Arts (NCCA), Moscow (AFI, 2016)
