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.
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…’

|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
