Description

Ambika P3 presented a major exhibition of work by the internationally celebrated filmmaker and artist, Chantal Akerman. Entitled NOW, this was the first large scale exhibition in the English-speaking world of Akerman’s installation work and coincided with the UK premiere of her new film, No Home Movie (2015) at our new Regent Street Cinema. There was seven installation works at Ambika P3: the centrepiece was NOW (2015), a powerful seven channel video installation with surround sound.

Chantal Akerman (born 6 June 1950, Brussels, died 5 October 2015, Paris) was one of the most unpredictable, farsighted, indefinable, rigorous and playful film artists of her generation. While showing the troublesome complexity of human existence, Akerman’s works are filled with beautiful imagery, music, magic of chance, yearning and hope, yet she also investigates hot-button themes such as racism in the American South, illegal immigration, and terrorism in the Middle East.

Chantal Akerman NOW was jointly curated by CREAM’s Michael Mazière and A Nos Amours (Joanna Hogg and Adam Roberts) and presented in association with Marian Goodman Gallery. It was supported by Arts Council England, Marian Goodman Gallery and the University of Westminster.
