Hard to Be a God (2013)
In an interview in 2014, Isabel Nolan stated that, “I’m interested in the ways that people are interested in the world – the ways that scientists, poets, philosophers, artists etc. find ways to interact with and activate the world”(1). On the occasion of her solo exhibition Calling on Gravity, Nolan has selected a screening of the Russian film Hard to be a God which portrays a grotesque and anarchic alternate world in which any progression in culture and technology are violently suppressed.
