Join us for an evening of boundary-pushing film, with exclusive screenings of The Visitor (2019) by Sharone Lifschitz, Art as Problematic Waste (2019) by David Chapman and Aimo Hyvärinen, and a curated selection of Visions shorts responding to their themes.
The Visitor (2019) is a major collaboration between award-winning artist and filmmaker Sharone Lifschitz and Pritzker Prize-winning Chinese architect Wang Shu. The film revolves around Ningbo Museum of History and its presence as an unofficial memorial to China’s colossal peacetime destruction in its emergence from the debris of hundreds of villages that were eradicated to make way for the new district of Yinzhou.
Art as Problematic Waste (2019) is a documentary co-directed by documentary filmmaker, media artist and academic David Chapman and Finnish media artist Aimo Hyvärinen that forms part of the wider Art as Problematic Waste project.
Shot in Finland, Germany and the UK, the work is based on interviews with artists, art critics and curators on issues relating to the ‘excess’ of art production and at what point does art itself become waste.
Details about the Visions shorts which will be screened alongside these films will be released in due course.
These screenings will be followed by an informal conversation featuring Sharone Lifschitz and David Chapman.
The Nunnery Café will be open for the duration of the event, with refreshments and snacks available to purchase.
