This is a must- see show for anyone interested in Artists’ Film!
It’s a major exhibition of work by the internationally celebrated filmmaker and artist, Chantal Akerman. It’s the first large scale exhibition in the English-speaking world of Akerman’s installation work. There will be seven installation works at Ambika P3: the centrepiece will be NOW (2015), a powerful 8 channel video installation with surround sound originally commissioned for the Venice Biennale 2015. For this work, Akerman collected images from desert regions, specifically violently contested regions in the Middle East, her aim to present the current condition of violence and conflict as lived experience.
