New Work: Carla Andrade & Gerard Ortín Castellví
Sun 15 Sep 2019 / 7pm - 9pm
We are delighted to present the films of Carla Andrade and Gerard Ortín Castellví in the context of our New Work screening series, showcasing recent work by artists based in the UK.
Carla Andrade and Gerard Ortín Castellví are two Spanish graduates from the MA Artists’ Film and Moving Image degree at Goldsmiths, University of London. Their work is concerned with ideas of landscape, but whereas Andrade is drawn to non-domesticated nature for its unattainability and unownability, Ortín Castellví’s work problematizes the idea of “nature” itself as well as its imagery, often looking at human and more-than-human relations. They both work across media, with a focus on the moving image.
At LUX, a selection of recent works by both artists will be screened followed by a conversation between them and María Palacios Cruz (LUX).
With thanks to the Instituto Cervantes, London.
