As part of the Film London Jarman Award Weekend, I will be in conversation with filmmaker Margaret Salmon.
Bringing together the artists shortlisted for the 2018 Film London Jarman Award – Larry Achiampong & David Blandy, Jasmina Cibic, Lawrence Lek, Daria Martin, Hardeep Pandhal and Margaret Salmon – this weekend of events explores their different practices through screenings, talks, and performances.
Concerned with a shifting constellation of relations, such as those between camera and subject, human and animal, or autobiography and ethnography, Margaret Salmon’s films often examine the gendered dynamics of social interactions and representational forms. Following the screening, a conversation between the filmmaker and writer & curator Laura Guy will trace a line from Mm (2017) to Salmon’s forthcoming exhibition Hole at Dundee Contemporary Arts, touching upon feminist word play, pictures of women working cameras, and histories of erotica as they go.
Whitechapel Gallery, Saturday 17 & Sunday 18 November 2018, 12pm – 5.30pm
