The Issues of Our Time (3):
Less Time, More Issues
Artists Space Books & Talks
55 Walker Street
This won’t be the occasion to listen to people lecturing “about,“ or delivering definitive answers to any “issues;” rather, what’s at stake is how to define, cope and bear with them.
On this first evening there will be a reading by Lili Reynaud Dewar; followed by another happening, in the form of Fionn Meade’s unveiling of what lies under “The Skin of the Bear”. This will be puncuated by screenings of films and videos, selected by Morag Keil and Kari Rittenbach.
Later that evening, we will screen Dans la lumière (“Into the light,” 61 mins., video, French with subtitles) the first part of French filmmaker Leos Carax’s three-part mini-series Pierre ou, les ambiguïtés (1999). This adaptation of Herman Melville’s novel Pierre or, the ambiguities was first made into the feature film Pola X by Carax, before he reedited for television this longer, rarely seen version.
