THE STREAM AND ITS SOURCE I: SCREENING
Asymmetry, 102a Albion Drive, London E8 4LY
The Stream and Its Source is a publication project initiated by our Curatorial Fellow at Whitechapel Gallery, Eugene Yiu Nam Cheung. Taking as its starting point the ways in which artists explore the ruptures and continuities of war, and how one makes sense of displacement, exile, and the pursuit of liberation, this project examines and intertwines, centrally, select works by Vietnamese artist, filmmaker, and scholar Trinh T. Minh-ha with those of the late Austrian writer Ingeborg Bachmann. To assist the moving of these two artists and their bodies of work towards or 'around' one another, other artistic interlocutors working in moving image, prose, photography, and poetry will also be considered. Together, these works provide insight into how artists give form to the intrusions of war, and demonstrate, in turn, the indelible marks these leave on their public and private relationships.
For the first event of this series, we are delighted to host an all-day screening of three films by Vietnamese artist, filmmaker, and scholar Trinh T. Minh-ha.
