‘A truly alternative happening at this Dalston cinema space.’ Time Out
‘At Home with the Ludskis’ breaks away from exhibition tradition to explore an art gallery / cinema hybrid that aims to at a communal experience of Art that is thought-provoking, visually stimulating and emotionally involving. The pedestrian and mundane is pushed aside to passionately embrace the Post-Contemporary.
‘Your event looks lovely!’ Annie Sprinkle
was a highly prolific filmmaker. On the big screen we will show a number of screen tests and Mario Montez collaboration.
was the first woman to represent the United States in the Venice Biennale in 1990 and for her pavilion she was awarded the Golden Lion that year.
Nam June Paik
is considered to be the founder of video art. He is a major influence on late 20th-century art and continue to inspire a new generation of artists.
work is characterized by the idea that the truly important, viable art of the future would not be with objects; the things that you could simply sell and hang on your wall. Instead art would be ephemeral and address political, social, environmental and technological change. Burden, with his shockingly simple, unforgettable, “here and now” performances shook the conventional art world and took this new art form to its extreme.
is a very peculiar, extraordinary filmmaker. His film all seem to exist completely disconnected from the real world. Power games; hysteria, psychosis and cruelty are among his regular themes. The oeuvre of Zwartjes, once called “the most important experimental filmmaker of his time” by American essayist Susan Sontag.
In March 2010 Montez was honored by Columbia University’s Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race: Mario is considered one of the most gifted performers of the underground period.
The work of Egyptian artist Basim Magdy uses video, painting, slide projection and installation to examine war, information systems, scientific theories and the visual vocabulary of mass media. Positioning notions of progress within systems of humour and doubt, his work is marked by paradox and shifts between demolition and renewal, ruins and reconstruction.
In his videos and installations, the Berlin-based Singaporean artist Ming Wong explores the intersections of language, identity and performance.
Olivier de Sagazan
is a French artist who uses his body as a canvas in his riveting, sometimes disturbing performance art videos.
as an artist and a person is refreshing, his work is incredibly honest and unfailingly joyous, reflecting the fact that he truly could not be doing anything but making art. His creative process is his life force and it shows. Born in Switzerland, Olaf now lives and works in New York working between film, photography, installation, sculpture, drawing or what ever medium excites him.
core repertoire consists of DJ sets, sound installations, concerts and lectures based on the creative potential of electrical noise from lightning, solar-magnetic storms, live mains electricity, Information Technology and industrial hardware, and forms of “artificial lightning” such as flash, strobe and welding systems.
Performer, film-maker, bringing her A-game to a fierce launch of her new perfume.
is a UK based documentary filmmaker and research student at London College of Communication, UAL. Her films addressing notions of place have tended to concentrate upon the social, geographical or political relationship to place. http://julie-marsh.co.uk/
turns fashion into an erotic game. Her label isn’t so much a fashion line as a invitation to performance art play: she turns out huge, oversized clothes that have space for two, three – even four.
Performer Writer Film-maker based in London.
The House of O’Dwyer
Artist, Film-maker, Writer & Curator working restlessly with curiosity.
‘Brilliant! Such an incredible use of the cinema! Amazing atmosphere, amazing happenings – loved seeing the Rio filled with wildness.’
Charlie Phillips, Sheffield Doc Fest
