The annual Millennium Square Summer Series is back this June…
6 Jun 2012 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Pavilion presents a screening of short films by Yael Bartana (1970, Kfar-Yehezkel, Israel), a video artist who explores the imagery of cultural identity. In her photographs, films and installations Bartana critically investigates her native country's struggle for identity. Her early work documents collective rituals introducing alienation effects such as slow-motion and sound. In her recent work the artist stages situations and introduces fictive moments into real existing narratives.
The event will extend the activities of the Insight Palestina conference, co-organised by Dr Gil Pasternak (University of Huddersfield) and Lior Libman (Hebrew University of Jerusalem and University of Leeds), which focuses on visual and textual images produced within, and in relation to, the circumstances of the Israel-Palestine struggle. The screening also coincides with an exhibition by Artangel of Bartana's recent film trilogy And Europe Will Be Stunned, currently on show at Hornsey Town Hall.
The programme of films will include Kings of the Hill (2003), Wild Seeds (2005), Trembling Time (2001), Low Relief II (2004) and When Adar Enters (2004). The screening will be introduced by Gill Park, Gil Pasternak and Lior Libman.
The event is hosted by Leeds Art Gallery and supported by the University of Huddersfield.
