Mimosa House presents "Liquid Lunch", an evening of performances and screenings as part of our new exhibition Zoe Williams: Sunday Fantasy.
Free event but RSVP essential, please click here to sign up.
Hosted by the 4 artists featured in Zoe William's new film; Amy Gwatkin, Deniz Unal, Nadja Voorham and Zoe Williams, this event responds to themes within the film, drawing on their own work as well as other artists' films.
The event will run as follows:
Screening of Chick Strand's 'Soft Fiction', (1979) (54 minutes)
(Selected by Zoe Williams and Deniz Unal)
The film Soft Fiction creates a complex portrait of female subjectivity and sensuality through poetic documentation and lyrical abstraction.
Please note: ‘Soft Fiction’ contains frank discussions about sexual abuse and incest. Viewer discretion is advised.
Ushers, a performance by AnnaMaria Pinaka and Deniz Unal
Under the parental gaze
To show or guide someone somewhere
AnnaMaria and Deniz
Are taking turns
A fear of being caught
Marks the start of something new
Screening of AnnaMaria's Pinaka's, 'Bycatch', (2019) (5 minutes)
Bycatch is a video work consisting of archival and selfie footage of the artist and her grandmother; it maps a discussion on the ethics of love and an attempt to navigate this by putting their images in correspondence with each other.
Performance by Nadja Voorham
Jessica, Jessyca, I call your name and it rings in my ear as my own. A piece on performed and constructed surfaces and the leakage of desire and pleasure through them, through the gaze.
Screening of 'Risk Assessment', by Amy Gwatkin, (2013), (11 minutes)
Risk Assessment was the first foray into moving image in an almost decade long project using Craigslist to find models. The film comprises three interviews with anonymous men about their experience of being naked on camera.
Tea and cakes will be available for a small donation.
This event is part of our current exhibition, Zoe Williams: Sunday Fantasy, and is supported by Arts Council England.
We regret that Mimosa House is not wheelchair accessible.
