Previously at the ICA - Films
4 Sep 2013
The screening will include a discussion with Cytter and ICA Associate Curator of Artists’ Film and Moving Image, Steven Cairns.
Keren Cytter (b. 1977, Tel Aviv, Israel) creates films, video installations, and drawings, representing social realities through experimental modes of storytelling. Characterised by a non-linear, cyclical logic, Cytter's films consist of multiple layers of images, conversation, monologue and narration systematically composed to undermine linguistic conventions and traditional interpretation schemata. Recalling amateur home movies and video diaries, the artist's films depict intensified scenes drawn from everyday life in which the overwhelmingly artificial nature of the situations portrayed is echoed by the very means of their production.
Major solo exhibitions of Cytter's work include Avalanche, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (2011), and Project Series: Keren Cytter, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2010). Recent group exhibitions include On Apology, CCA Wattis, San Francisco (2012), and Whistable Biennale (2012).
