Breakfast Opening (Frieze Week)
Ana Vaz, The Voyage Out
Wed 3 Oct 2018 / 9am - 10.30am
Join us 3 October, for a free breakfast, and opportunity to view our current exhibition: BL CK B X: Ana Vaz, The Voyage Out. We will be providing coffee, tea and pastries, with members of LUX available to greet and answer any questions. All welcome, drop in any time between 9 – 10.30am.
The exhibition, The Voyage Out, takes the toxic disaster in Fukushima as a synecdoche of the impending ecological disaster and the possibility of renewal. Composed of a set of short films in 16mm, a radio series, videos, cartographies and conversations, The Voyage Out is conceived as an ‘archipelago’ of connected presentations, which will grow and develop with each exhibition iteration, bringing together different articulations between its elements and partners. The exhibition is open 12 September – 7 October 2018.
Ana Vaz (1986, Brasília) is an artist and filmmaker whose films, installations and performances explore complex relationships between environments, territories and hybrid histories pushing the boundaries of our perception. Her films have been showed internationally in film festivals and institutions such as the Tate Modern, Palais de Tokyo, Jeu de Paume, New York Film Festival, TIFF Wavelengths, BFI, Cinéma du Réel, TABAKALERA, Courtisane, amongst others. Specific focuses on her work have been developed in seminars and gatherings such as the Flaherty Seminar (USA), TIFF Lightbox (Canada), Doc’s Kingdom (Portugal), Curto Circuito Film Festival (Spain) and Massart Film Society (USA). Her work has recently featured in group shows such as “Eco-visionaries” at MAAT (Portugal), “What are the Clouds?” at WKV Stuttgart, Moscow Biennial of Young Art and Espace Khiasma (France). Ana is also a founding member of the collective COYOTE along with Tristan Bera, Nuno da Luz, Elida Hoëg and Clémence Seurat, a cross-disciplinary group working in the fields of ecology, ethnology and political science through an array of cross-cutting platforms.
