The Douglas Hyde is delighted to present the sixth of the screenings of Art from the African Diaspora as part of Alice Rekab’s multi-platform project FAMILY LINES.
Aiming to platform the voices of other artists of colour and to represent intergenerational legacies of self-representation in the production of film, writing and visual art, Alice Rekab and The Douglas Hyde have invited Larry Achiampong to co-curate the screening series by selecting a film that influenced and/or inspired him. Achiampong has invited London-based artist Jennifer Martin to screen her work TEETH (2019).
In TEETH a couple interrogated by UK Home Office agents endures a series of assessments that become progressively performative to evidence their relationship’s legitimacy. The office space becomes a theatre stage for a gruelling audition of acceptability. Awkwardness quickly escalates into surreal horror.
We will also have a special in-person screening of The Expulsion by Larry Achiampong and TEETH on 10 March at 6pm. For more details see the event page here.
Considering the crossovers between his film The Expulsion and TEETH, Larry Achiampong has created the below introductory sound piece to accompany both films.
Artists present us with new perspectives on the world we live in. Explore the exciting ideas behind our programmes, hear more from the artists we work with and discover new ways of engaging with art.
