CLR6: The Sleep of Race
Rodrigo Arenas-Carter, Guatemala
Simina Neagu, London/England — Okt 24, 2016
“Forwarding address” presents itself as a two-part online screening of recent moving image works.
Responding to the practice of Apparatus 22 and the concept of SUPRAINFINIT, “Forwarding address” will weave together two strands of their work, understood as container of unresolved histories and an ecstatic play unlocking the potentialities of rituals and objects. Rather than restating or reinforcing their propositions, the screening will expand upon the generous and elusive SUPRAINFINIT and invite other artists into the dialogue.
The first episode, l’Avenir Redux, will revolve around interlocking past and present narratives in an intricate fabric of latent futures. Dystopian fictions sit side by side with residues of abandoned utopias, while l’Avenir lies quietly beneath the dormant surface.
The second episode, Morpheus Buyback, will shift towards invented rituals and accumulations of objects and imagine their power of projection and actualization. Everything in order to revive l’Avenir.
List of proposed artists:
– Episode I: l’Avenir Redux – Ojoboca, Daniel Jacoby, Mihai Grecu, Lucy Raven
– Episode II: Morpheus Buyback – Hanakam Schuller, Zoe Williams
