Berlin-based artist Haris Epaminonda investigates anthropological forms in her film and paper-based work, often recontextualising existing material. For this screening she presents a new composition of her films alongside a recent work edited for this event. Epaminonda’s films will be accompanied by a live score performed by musicians Kelly Jayne Jones and Pascal Nichols.
Haris Epaminonda (born Cyprus. 1980), lives and works in Berlin. Solo exhibitions in 2013 include Chapters, Point Center for Contemporary Art, Nicosia and Modern Art Oxford, and South of Sun, Künsthaus Zürich, Switzerland. Recent group shows include Preis Der Nationalgalerie Für Junge Kunst 2013, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; Everywhere But Now (2013), 4th Thessaloniki Biennale, Greece; and The Order Of Things: Cinematic Moments (2013), CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco.
Kelly Jayne Jones and Pascal Nichols employ flute, percussion and electronics alongside a vast cache of sonic artifacts that they have collected over the years (field recordings, found objects, old media), they conjure up a bold and evocative ancient/modern sound spectrum. Their compositions/performances traverse epic contours, veering from moments of spare, poetic beauty to unhinged rural psychedelia, unified by an acute awareness of time, space and silence.
They are currently working on a multi-speaker installation which will tour four venues across the UK.
