ROMANTIC MALADY Edition 10 of AT HOME WITH THE LUDSKIS
Curated by Granny Ludski
Bringing together Artists from all over the world, at all career stages and levels of fame and from as many creative fields as possible, to create an evening of Avant Garde Art for the Movie House Screen and the Post Contemporary Age.
dead, alive, international, local, above and beyond
‘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.
is an Egyptian artist, who 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.
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/

‘Brilliant! Such an incredible use of the cinema! Amazing atmosphere, amazing happenings – loved seeing the Rio filled with wildness.’
Charlie Phillips, Sheffield Doc Fest
Is it impossible, Curator 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 itself.
‘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
‘…from dada to data to grandma the beat goes on…’ Granny Ludski

Notes to Editors
History >>> 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 Russian immigrant, who in 1909 founded the KINGSLAND PALACE, the first electric picture house on the site on which the Rio Cinema now stands.
Like traditional hallowed places of worship and communion they impart to us a message about how we once lived and how we might live. This pagan temple is a shrine to our collective Dreams, Fears, Loves, Madness and codes of Honour.
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’ 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!
