Bodil Furu
This bird has flown (ii)

10 July - 10 August,
Wednesday - Saturday, 11am-5pm

Bodil Furu is interested in the social and economic dynamics that bind communities together and tear them apart - the world over.
Projected in the Upper Space, Den Gamle Kinoen premiers here in London and is the latest in a body of work by one of Norway's most respected artists. These politically charged moving image works tackle environmental issues and the agenda of globalization with subtlety and through a variety of international locations.
This bird has flown... is a season of films embracing key themes running through the work of Bodil Furu. The artist's interest in the way existential questions surface in diverse circumstances leads her to interrogate subjects close to home (such as the future of Oslo's Alna river) as well as to make intercontinental investigations into pollution and sustainability.
The five films showing at Beaconsfield over the summer take us from the remote islands of the Arctic Circle to urban China and chart the artist's subversion of the tropes of Documentary video. The season of films includes Den Gamle Kinoen, 2013, Opera, 2008, Misty Clouds, 2011, Alnaelva, 2012 and Fjell som Faller (Where Mountains Fall), 2012.


Simon Tyszko
The Unfun Fair Too

10 July - 10 August,
Wednesday - Saturday, 11am-5pm

The Unfun Fair expands in our Arch Space as Simon Tyszko develops new pieces within the second half of his sonic sculpture exhibition.
Tyszko's mixed media practice constructs narratives that originate in the joys and tragedies of his colourful personal life. The expression of poignant emotional experiences finds form through a variety of physical materials. Discarded machines are rejuvenated and linked to other objects creating new hybrids animated by sound or light. Through its evolution, the original core impulse acquires gravitas as a reflection of the experience of the wider social body.
The composition of sound and light currently exhibited in the Arch is bound together by neon - a core symbol of consumer culture - and 10,000 volts.
