João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva Papagaio

  • 30 January — 29 March 2015

Portuguese artists João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva present a magical, immersive film installation for their first major show in London. The kaleidoscopic world created by 27 16mm films and two camera obscura installations takes viewers on an imaginative journey into science, philosophy and religion.

Each film examines a particular subject - a treatise on material, animal or human behaviour that probes at the nature of truth and perception. Shot with a high-speed camera but projected in slow motion, the films reveal ordinarily imperceptible detail with ghostly effect. Starting from journeys, stories, anecdotes or cinematic allegories and with few contextual cues to enable the enigmatic scenarios to be located in a specific time or place, the veracity of each film is ambiguous.

Ruth Ewan: Back to the Fields

  • 30 January — 29 March 2015

London-based artist Ruth Ewan brings to life the French Republican Calendar in a new work made for Camden Arts Centre’s Gallery 3.

In use from 1793 until 1805, the calendar temporarily redefined and rationalised the Gregorian Calendar, stripping it of all religious references in post-revolutionary France. Months and weeks were restructured and seasons and days renamed in collaboration with artists, poets and horticulturalists to reflect the seasonality of nature and agriculture.

Bringing together all 365 items used to denote the days of the year - such as a lettuce, a cart, wax, a turnip, honey, a fir tree, ivy, figs, mercury, lava, moss, tuna, a pheasant, an axe – the gallery will be transformed into a tangible calendar.
