Spring Show 2
This group exhibition in the spring of 1978 was curated by Stuart Brisley.
It included Ken McMullen’s Suggestions (1978), a film in 12 parts which offered an ‘investigation into what makes a story and what motivates story telling, what are the different forms of narrative, and how these forms have come about.’ Resistance, McMullen’s earlier film from 1976, provided a background to Suggestions.
Another work presented in the exhibition was George Levantis’ Eros – Thanatos. The work was inspired by the disappearance of a captain from a ship travelling from Genoa to Piraeus in 1972. Levantis wrote: “It was my intention to make a work that punctures the silence of this incident, which has also imposed upon the works its obsessive content, that is for me inescapable.”
