Martine Syms, Lessons I-XXX, 2014

ICA

Fact & Trouble is an exhibition by American artist Martine Syms that examines the space between lived experience and its representation. Syms’s video series Lessons (ongoing), on view at the ICA, is a long, incomplete poem in 180 sections. Each piece is thirty seconds in duration and articulates a lesson from the tradition. One of these lessons is painted on the gallery walls. The videos use the idea of inheritance as a departure point, simulating the private-public unconscious of television shows, advertisements, animated GIFs, police cams, surveillance footage, Vines and other digitally-circulated formats.

Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness

29 Apr – 21 Jun 2015

A finger poised on a camera – its open back revealing the film roll and mechanism – sets the scene for this exhibition of photographs about photography. Somewhere between a film director, a picture editor and an art historian, American artist Christopher Williams (b.1956) investigates photography as the defining medium of modernism.

Preview: Thursday 7 February 2013, 6.30 – 8.30pm

The Rag Papers (2013) explores the nature of attention, reuse and appropriation. The film’s worried narrative shifts between the perspectives of three characters who interact with a series of objects set within carefully designed domestic interiors. The film uses point of view shots and cutaway sequences to suggest the roaming nature of each character’s attention and in turn, reveals transient spaces such as hotel rooms, sorting depots and markets.
