Artists’ Film International

Rosa Barba, Robertas Narkus and Jokūbas Čižikas, Danielle Dean

3 April – 3 June 2018 

In 2018 we consider the theme of truth and the relationship between fact and fiction in international artists’ film.

Rosa Barba (b. 1972, Italy) records absurdist efforts to save an imaginary Swedish island from disappearing into the sea in Outwardly from Earth’s Center (2007), and brings together fictional experts’ reports and interviews.

The Race (2015) by Robertas Narkus (b. 1983, Lithuania) and Jokūbas Čižikas (b. 1988, Lithuania) remixes the word ‘drone’ used in the mass media, with dance music, rap verses and proverbs.

Danielle Dean’s (b. 1982, USA) work True Red Ruin (Elmina Castle) (2017) maps the release of Nike’s ‘True Red’ trainers in 2003 and utilises design elements from Elmina Castle built by Portuguese colonizers in Ghana in 1482, exploring the relationship of slavery, commerce and power throughout history.
