Now&After '14 Monika K. Adler

Monika K. Adler’s recent videowork Memoire Involontaire will feature in International Video Art Festival «Now&After» ’14 at the State Museum of GULAG, Moscow.

In 2014 “Now&After” festival is being held at the State Museum of GULAG – a place that has accumulated the memories of Stalin’s punitive system. In the area of our special interest there is a traumatic memory: reliving and rethinking of the historical traumas, especially those related to the history of GULAG.

Assembly: Closing event yoga horror
The Wayward Canon presents Yoga Horror

Tate Britain, Grand Saloon
Saturday 15 March 2014, 19.00 – 22.30
£5, concessions available

Part of the series Assembly: A survey of recent artists’ film and video in Britain 2008–2013

For the special closing event for Assembly, artist Mark Aerial Waller presents a new project in his ongoing series The Wayward Canon.
Yoga Horror occupies the convergent space of film viewing where the gallery exhibition overlaps with cinema and social gathering. The event includes a screening of the 1945 portmanteau British horror movie Dead of Night together with specially filmed new sequences and a yoga exercise video. Dead of Night is narrated through the half remembered experience of the protagonist Walter Craig, whose recurring nightmare provides a recursive structure for a series of tales, where one form of consciousness slips into another, where horror lies within slippages of logic and perception. This new production of Yoga Horror presents previously unseen footage constructed specially for the event. It is a dynamic montage of spectatorship and memory, inviting the audience to engage with the gap between waking and dreaming, between the impossible and the real. Their unique events explore the covert languages of cinema, the shadowy half-pronounced areas where humour, horror and truth reside.

A study of the work of Polish artist / filmmaker Monika K. Adler by American writer and film critic Robert Smart. “Historical violence haunts the short films of
Monika K. Adler. The bodies of her female protagonists are carriers of traumatic memory. Even apparently consensual encounters carry this residue
of past horrors.”
