Screening programme: The Margins of Exhibition curated by David Teh

Description

The Margins of Exhibition is a selection of artist-made videos gathered in response to the curatorial proposition of The Disappearance. The programme displaces our focus from the main game – the artwork, the exhibition or in cinema, the pro-filmic or a feature presentation – in favour of what is peripheral. Neither inside nor outside, there is much more to the frame than meets the eye.

Anthea Behm, Adorno / Bueller (2011), is based around two scripts: one adapted from Frankfurt School Philosopher Theodor Adorno’s Aesthetic Theory (1970), and the other from John Hughes’ Hollywood movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986). Filmed on location in the Art Institute of Chicago, the video stages a dynamic encounter between both texts via a series of performances that presents and merges the two scripts. Simultaneously dramatizing and destabilizing the categories that continue to inform our conceptions of social, cultural and artistic production, the video formally manifests the contradictions embedded in such categorical divisions, and the possible ways in which they are necessarily maintained or dissolved. The resulting critical intervention into the accepted ‘sense’ of each text is at once confounding yet clarifying.
