ARTISTS’ PRESENTATION BORDER STRUGGLES (OF THE COMMON BIRDS)
WHITECHAPEL GALLERY 77-82 Whitechapel High St London E1 7QX London
Working across film, exhibitions, sound works, performance, radio broadcasts, experimental workshops and books, Paris-based filmmakers and artists Silvia Maglioni and Graeme Thomson present an evening of readings, screenings and conversation, drawing on excerpts from their new film in progress Common Birds, to reflect on how the work of Huillet and Straub has informed the invention of cinematic forms and methods that test the boundaries of voice and language.
Presented as part of The Films of Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet
