Event description

Description

For the first time, LADA recently held an open call for the LADA Screens series. We are very pleased to announce that the two selected artists are Nicola Fornoni (Italy) and Adam Patterson (Barbados/UK).

We will be joined by both artists at this event, where both films will be screened. Following the screening there will be a discussion and drinks will be served.

Nicola Fornoni will present Overshoot Day, a video of a performance made inside a marble quarry which parallels ‘the wounds of nature’ with the artists own skin. The film, shot by drone on an autumn day, features the artist sitting bare-chested and using his facial muscles to hold a glass containing a drop of water in the air. The aridity of the landscape corresponds to the artist’s skin and to a lack of natural resources required to sustain life.

Adam Patterson will present Lookalook a video documenting a live performative walk in Bridgetown, Barbados, using masquerade to characterise and personify the violence and (dis)possession experienced in being looked at (or in Barbadian terms, the incarnation of a 'stinklook'). 'Stinklook' and 'cut-eye' are quintessentially Barbadian (and Caribbean) behaviours, and Lookalook, itself, is a monster giving these behaviours a sense of mythology.

Overshoot Day will then be available to watch on the LADA Screens channel from 26 July - 22 August 2018.

Lookalook will be available to watch on the LADA Screens channel from 23 August - 19 September 2018.

The LADA Screens Open Call 2018 is an annual programme which invites submissions of existing videos or films to show online as part of LADA Screens. Please sign up to our newsletter to be kept updates on future opportunities.

Please note: All of our events are free. We ask for reservations to give us a sense of numbers for catering etc, however we no longer limit capacities in advance or have waiting lists. So when you book we do encourage you to arrive early or at least promptly - partly to secure a seat but also not to disrupt events after they’ve started.

"I take my responsibility to turn up when I’ve booked a free place maybe even more seriously than when I’ve paid for a ticket. Because with free tickets someone else is paying for that ticket, right? Maybe it’s the organisers, maybe it's the artist, maybe it’s a funding body, but I know that if I’m not paying then someone else is paying for me. So I want to be mindful of that gift, and make sure that it will really be passed on if I decide not to go.” - LADA Audience Member 2018

Thank you for coming to LADA events and we look forward to seeing you soon.
