BODY (UN)MUTE
Online Exhibition

BODY (UN)MUTE

Available now

A two-day online festival that looks into the rituals of dancing and masking in times of social distancing. How do these rituals happen in online space? What are the solutions that can empower us and activate our bodies? How do we navigate through this switch between private and public space? What kind of knowledge and ideas can we extract from new media artists and dancers? Together, we will create an online experience that stays part of our memory as festivals do. Last few months, our movements and ways of communicating have been impacted by a global crisis. Distances between our bodies in public and private spaces have been regulated by new measurements. Our freedom of movement is on hold. Dancing became possible only in private, and suddenly it has a different meaning and context. It introduced another form of visibility, “performing” for the web camera on our online meetings, dates, events. In the beginning, it felt weird and awkward, but we are adjusting to it. Now it is time to emancipate the online body and get a deeper understanding of the new realness. It is time to unmute the body.

Alice May Williams, Dream City – More, Better, Sooner (2016)

Available now

A meditation on the changing face of London’s landmark Battersea Power Station – smokestack energy colossus of yesteryear now rapidly transforming into an upscale lifestyle playground of tomorrow. Combining archive footage of the building in its industrial heyday with computer-generated projections of the form it will soon inhabit (or what, if things had been different, it might otherwise have become), Williams’ film concentrates our attention just as firmly on the present moment – on the rumble of construction and the grumbles of disruption that currently characterise the site.

The Enchanted Interior at Guildhall Art Gallery | Video Tour

Available now

The Enchanted Interior is an exhibition that explores the recurring motif of female subjects in art, as depicted in enclosed, ornate interiors. Such images are inherently alluring yet sinister, carrying implications of enforced isolation. This theme is prevalent in nineteenth-century British painting, with many Pre-Raphaelites and Orientalists showing a fascination with the so-called ‘gilded cage’. Visitors will encounter work by a breath-taking variety of artists from the high Victorian through to Art Nouveau, Aestheticism, Surrealism, and pieces by contemporary female artists, who ‘speak back’ to the historic tradition.

Titian: Love, Desire, Death

Available now

In 1551, Prince Philip of Spain, the future King Philip II, commissioned Titian, the most famous painter in Europe, to produce a group of paintings showing Classical myths primarily taken from the Roman poet Ovid’s ‘Metamorphoses’. Combining Titian’s remarkable talent as both artist and storyteller, the mythological scenes capture moments of high drama; a fatal encounter, the shameful discovery, a hasty abduction. Titian expertly manipulates paint and colour to dazzling effect; capturing luminous flesh, sumptuous fabrics, water, reflection, and atmospheric, almost enchanted, landscapes.

Léon Spilliaert

Léon Spilliaert (1881–1946) was born in the coastal town of Ostend. He moved to Brussels at the age of 20, and would live and work between the two cities for the rest of his life. Self-taught, he forged his own artistic identity, which was shaped by the affinity he felt with writers and thinkers such as Edgar Allan Poe and Friedrich Nietzsche. This exhibition showcases some 80 works on paper – from images of Spilliaert’s home town and the coast, to later works capturing the tranquillity of the forest outside Brussels.
