BODIES OF SILENCE #1: ORDINARY RUPTURES

As part of The Midnight Mass Edition of the London Short Film Festival [LSFF 2013]

@ RIO CINEMA, DALSTON, LONDON

Saturday 12 January 2013

BODIES OF SILENCE is a special project curated in support of ONE BILLION RISING London Art Festival, which will include international artists Regina Jose Gallindo, Şükran Moral and Pillar Albarracín. Some of the included artists have been chosen following an open call for work that stresses the ethical and political implications of silence as a by-product of traumatic crime. We have selected artwork that is explicit in its political activism as much as we are interested in portraying more open-ended representations of bodies that communicate silence, trauma, politics and ethics.

For our first event, ORDINARY RUPTURES, we have chosen artists that illuminate the inherent struggles of everyday life and the invisible tensions of ordinary relationships.

Performance: Alice Tatge

Video Installations: Victoria Trinder / Urszula Kluz-Knopek

Screening: Iacopo Zanon / Ingrid Berthon-Moine

Music: curated by Dana Jade – founder of Clit Rock (music events to raise awareness and funds for the prevention of Female Genital Mutilation)

One Billion Rising is an international art festival, a celebration, a party that will take place worldwide on 14th of February 2013. The OBR London Art Festival starts tonight with ongoing events around town until April 2013.
