Berlin-based artist Keren Cytter screened her film The Great Tale of The Devil’s Hill and The Endless Search For Freedom (75min, Digital Video, 2008–2009), followed by a performance Artism or Autism? with Andrew Kerton.
Cytter’s films are characterised by a non-linear and cyclical logic, her poetic montages of images recalling amateur home movies and video diaries. This distinctly analytical approach to film-making challenges the way in which the strategies and clichés of the media permeate our reality.
Park Nights 2009
Park Nights is an annual series of events staged every Friday night in the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion. The 2009 programme included music, theatre, performances, talks and film screenings. The season culminated in October with Poetry Marathon, the latest in the Gallery’s acclaimed series of Marathons, conceived by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Serpentine Gallery Co-Director.
All events were held in the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2009 designed by Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of SANAA.
