‘At Home with the Ludskis’ breaks away from exhibition tradition to explore an art gallery / cinema hybrid that aims to be thought-provoking, visually stimulating and emotionally involving. The pedestrian and mundane is pushed aside to passionately embrace the Post-Contemporary.
‘Brilliant! Such an incredible use of the cinema! Amazing atmosphere, amazing happenings – loved seeing the Rio filled with wildness.’ Charlie Phillips, Sheffield Doc Fest
‘Your event looks lovely!’ Annie Sprinkle
‘A truly alternative happening at this Dalston cinema space.’ Time Out
Is it impossible, Granny Ludski asked herself, to bring together artists 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 exhibition 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.
‘An intriguing event that smashes pigeonholes with risky ideas. If there’s no future 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 something about the Ludskis that suggests it should be taken a little more seriously than the rest. 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

Notes to Editors
History >>> The Beautiful Art Deco, Rio Cinema, in the very beating heart of the London Art scene, sees the Ludski’s return to produce a unique exhibition/screening/happening in their ongoing tribute to Clara Ludski. Clara was a Russian immigrant, who in 1909 founded the KINGSLAND PALACE, the first electric picture house on the site on which the Rio Cinema now stands.
This pagan temple is a shrine to our collective Dreams, Fears, Loves, Madness and codes of Honour. Like traditional hallowed places of worship and communion they impart 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 style and scholastic didacticism of Art Academy, Gallery, Museum and Biennale. This led to the creation of ‘At Home with the Ludskis’ to make a late night exhibition/screening/happening with as wide a range of artists from different fields, providing startling moving image, surreal musicianship, eerie installation, seductive performance. All the Art Forms that cinema relies on will Be There!
