Raiders of the Lost Ark, Grace Ndiritu

9 May, 2022
– 15 May, 2022

Created in the period between the two films A Week in the News: 7 places we think we know, 7 news stories we think we understand (2010) and Black Beauty (2021), Raiders of the Lost Ark (2015) forms part of the constellation of Grace Ndiritu’s ideas of non-linear time. This film highlights the places where people and energies coincide, and helps us to reflect on bigger questions beyond the timeline of human history.

The artist describes the importance of this film: 

“The film is really talking about time in a more expanded way, not only thinking about different geographies and different histories, but also thinking about ideas around mythology and storytelling that lead into ‘Black Beauty’.”

For the first week of the exhibition, viewers will be able to watch “Raiders of the Lost Ark” on LUX’s website for free. We encourage you to watch the film in advance of visiting Grace Ndiritu – An Absolute River on site at LUX. 


Grace Ndiritu – An Absolute River is curated by students from the MA Curating Contemporary Art Programme as part of the Graduate Projects 2022, Royal College of Art, in partnership with and LUX.
