KWM artcenter is pleased to present its fifth collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery, London from 24th December 2019 to 18th February 2020. Throughout 2019/20, KWM artcenter has been screening a series of moving image works as part of the Artists’ Film International (AFI) project based on the theme of gender. AFl celebrates moving image work and is selected by a global partnership of arts organisations including KWM artcenter. Each nominates an outstanding work from their region which is screened across each venue during the year.
The fifth 3 selected films are Polish artist Tomasz Machcinski’s My Songs (2011-16) selected by the Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw; Canadian Angela Su’s The Afterlife of Rosy Leavers (2016 - 17) selected by Para/Site, Hong Kong; and Indian artist Raju Rage’s Techno Gender: Pyramid Revealed By A Sandstorm (2017) selected by Project 88, Mumbai.
Tomasz Machciński (b. 1942, Poland) creates an ongoing self-portrait in My Songs (2011–16). Acting as director and performer the artist uses costumes, makeup and ‘everything that happens to my organism such as: hair regrowth, loss of teeth, illnesses, ageing’.
安杰拉·苏 Angela Su 《罗茜·利弗斯的来生》 The Afterlife of Rosy Leavers (2016 - 2017) 14′35″ 由香港Para Site艺术空间选送 Selected by Para/Site, Hong Kong
In The Afterlife of Rosy Leavers (2016 - 2017), Angela Su (b. 1952, Canada) weaves early cinema with animation to recount a young girl’s fascination with doubling, hallucination and virtual reality, and her transition to becoming a cartoon character and disappearing into cyberspace.
Raju Rage is an interdisciplinary artist whose Techno Gender: Pyramid Revealed By A Sandstorm (2017) is a sonic collage of images focusing on the emotional impact of hormones on the body. Bridging the gap between science, health and art, it questions the role of hormones in the social determination of sex and gender.
