Christian Nyampeta at Camden Arts Centre

This show looks worth visiting:
29 September 2017 – 14 January 2018
Rwandan-born Dutch artist Christian Nyampeta works across art, design and theory in an ongoing enquiry into ways of living together.

Words after the World is an exhibition which builds on Nyampeta’s recent residency at Camden Arts Centre. During this time, Nyampeta hosted a scriptorium, in which he convened a working group to translate Francophone texts by philosophers such as Alexis Kagame and Maniragaba Balibutsa. This collective structure led to the production of the script for Nyampeta’s new film, which conveys a fictional writer attempting to complete a novella at a time when the use of existing words is restricted by copyright: as a result, the writer is compelled to craft new words in order to avoid both silence and persecution.

Arthur Jafa at Serpentine Sackler Gallery (+ Grayson Perry)

Artangel project – Dinh Q. Lê ‘Colony’ installation in Peckham

This ends soon – 9th October-  but it is quite spectacular, nicely done, and worth the adventure into a pretty fascinating space

The Colony is a new film installation by Vietnamese artist and filmmaker Dinh Q. Lê on the site of one of London’s earliest cinemas, Peckham’s Electric Theatre which opened in 1908. Lê’s films immerse the viewer in the desolate environment of the Chincha Islands off the coast of Peru.

Here is the trailer

James Richards: Requests and Antisongs

Highly recommended this Autumn for all moving image makers…(especially the experimental variety!)

In Richards’ work, images and sounds are merged into highly affective video works that combine footage from a wide range of sources edited into elegant compositions. His recent projects separate these elements out again, allowing space for multi-channel audio installations that combine sound in a way that is physical and spatial. The video works convene materials according to the silent rhythms and movements of the footage they contain.
