We are kicking off 2023 with a special film program at Ellen de Bruijne Projects. Semicolons is a screening program curated by Sergi Rusca that seeks to engage different artistic practices in conversation through film and video, with the participation of 13 artists––both represented and guest artists: Pauline Curnier Jardin, Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz, Erkka Nissinen, Kasper Akhøj & Tamar Guimãraes, Falke Pisano, Dora Garcia, Su Hui-Yu, Eglė Budvytytė, Jumana Manna & Sille Storihle, Grace Ndritu, Peng Zuqiang, Ivan Cheng and Lola Gonzàlez.
Every week, two films have been paired following different lines of thought. Be it the issues they reflect on, the diverse languages they channel, their epistemological and political reivindications, or the exploration of elements like the grotesque, the irrational, or alterity. Working in juxtaposition, Semicolons presents a collection of film works in both concurrence and dissonance, conceptually and aesthetically, over the span of seven weeks.
Join us every week for a double screening, starting every Saturday, during gallery hours: Saturday 13–18hrs, Wednesday to Friday 11–18hrs.
