Seventeen - Real Talk

E2 8AA

A basement space group show featuring works by Seth Price, Aleksandra Domanovic, Marjolijn Dijkman and Samuel Beckett.

Seth Price's
Rejected or Unused Clips, Arranged in Order of Importance (2003) is a composition of visual and audio elements purportedly abandoned by the artist during the production of other works.

In Aleksandra Domanovic's Anhedonia* the audio content from Woody Allen's Annie Hall (1977) (a film with next to no incidental music) is superimposed onto stock still and moving images from the Getty Images archive.

Marjolijn Dijkman's
Wandering through the Future (2007) is an hour-long compilation of cinematic depictions of the future.

Quad (1981) is a movement play described simply by its author Samuel Beckett as 'a piece for four players, light and percussion'. Quad follows a strict geometric code - four individuals shifting around a defined area according to a set pattern and accompanied by percussion.
