Curated by Granny Ludski‘Brilliant! Such an incredible use of the cinema!
Amazing atmosphere,amazing happenings – loved seeing the Rio filled
with wildness.’Charlie Phillips, Sheffield Doc FestIs it impossible, Curator Granny
Ludski asked herself, to bring togetherartists working in many different disciplines,
into one place, for one moment, to produce a meta-happening? A true
cross/multi disciplinary approach to Art and exhibiton making is totally absent
from the British Art scene. Granny Ludski smashes boundaries and avoids the herd
to bring work as varied and complex as the audience and the world itself.
‘An intriguing event that smashes pigeonholes with risky ideas.
If there’snofuture for that,  there’s no future for anything.’
 – Alex Chappel
The saturated landscape of art, installations, performance and even fashion
in the East London makes it easy to be dismissive, yet there’s somethingabout the Ludskis that suggests it should be taken a little more seriouslythan the rest.
1939325_10201613807293244_1773374094_o
The avant-garde late night exhibition combines a number of mediums –
from screenings to live music – and celebrates the rich history of the Dalston
Rio’s roots in Modernism. It might just be something people will be talking
about for a while…’       Thrill City London
‘…from dada to data to grandma the beat goes on…’
t: +44 7425 14472
Notes to EditorsHistory >>> the Ludskis return to the Beautiful Art Deco, Rio Cinema,in the very beating heart of the London Scene to produce a unique exhibition/screening/ happening in their ongoing tribute to Clara Ludski, a Russianimmigrant who in 1909 founded the KINGSLAND PALACE, the first electric picturehouse on the site on which the Rio Cinema now stands.This pagan temple is a shrine to our collective Dreams, Fears, Loves, Madness andcodes of Honour. Like traditional hallowed places of worship and communion theyimpart to us a message about how we once lived and how we might live.

Bored and drained by bogus exhibitions and the banal moving image screenings of

cinema and gallery, Granny Ludski wanted something more vital, with quality, depth

and imagination. We found ourselves in direct conflict with the academic tropes and

scholastic didacticism of Art Academy, Gallery, Museum and Biennale. This led to the

creation of ‘At Home with the Ludskis’ and the production of a late night exhibition/

screening/ happening with as wide a range of artists from different fields, providing,

eerie installation, seductive performance, startling moving image, surreal

musicianship.

All the Art Forms that Cinema relies on will Be There!

ANDY WARHOL – EDIE   SCREEN TEST

Not that Romantic stooopid! Romanticism! Ahhh! The nihilistic adolescent apocalyptic fantasy. Romanticism! the un-dead impossible to destroy wading in blood for abstract principles stoking a blood lust that could never be sated… God bothers truth deniers their kingdom on earth has come and gone the horror the horror and yet… they multiply and false prophecise  and sanctify zombic grooming of the gullible. We don’t want another sermon, we want a song , a song to dance to, a dance for the new enlightenment.

A few words from Curator Granny Ludski, before her happening/ event this week at Rio Cinema in Dalston London E8

July 23, 2013 § 1 Comment

imagesimages
I am a curator
the Mother of the C-generation
Ich bin ein Kurator
I am Granny Ludski
Listen up! As a Curator who sees curating as Art, I have dedicatied, no, devoted myself to curate / programme / produce / fabulate my unique contribution to the International Art World:
‘At Home with the Ludskis’
This is an exhibition/ event / screening / opening / happening /evening made up of between 20-30 Artists work including film, performance, music, installation, plastic art & so much more. The Art and content for my Ludski Nite is different each time creating a unreapetable  experience for the viewer. To this end I have set myself to scour the surface of this planet, looking, listening, seeking, thinking …
     Im looking for the most interesting, experimental work /ideas/ gestures being attempted/ created, past/ present. This includes experimental video (Cory Arcangel), Avant garde film (Merideth Monk, Kenneth Anger), live performance & films of dance (Charlie George, Moreno Solinas, Butoph), Opera (Ernesto Tomasini, Luci Briginshaw), music (Quilla Constance, Winnie the Pouf), fashion (Loulou Reloulou, Hannah Rubin), multi-media (Season Butler), painting (house of o’dwyer), photography (Leland Bobbe), installation (Rorschach), poetry (Ernesto Sarzale, Joelle Taylor), fire breathing… and even mime!
  I am on an unending quest, searching for ANY interesting Art from ANY field, ANYwhere in the world.
I believe Art doesn’t have to be solemn to be serious! Important doesn’t have to be self regarding! Ideas ARE pleasure! Educating don’t need to be didactic! Art is not always the opposite of entertainment!
I dare to mix contemporary with older, and works that may have increasing significance as the cultural dynamic evolves and that people may never have seen on the big screen and with company.
‘from DADA to Grandma the beat goes on…’
On a Ludski nite the viewer may explore the Cinema building before the screening and perfromances or / and during. They can remain seated or not. They can re-explore if my play-list does not appeal. But I try to follow my friend Baldessari’s dictum:
‘No more boring Art’
I aim for the screening / happening / event  to act as a catylist to further exploration of multi-platfrom ideas, mixed media manifestations and cochinielle hot collaborations.
I insist on creating unique Art experiences, where your presence is required to for the happening around you to unfold. You have to be present. It will happen only once!
I desire to break down the barriers between different art disciplines and enhance the experience and production of art.
