Sasha Litvintseva

Every Rupture

We are delighted to present the eighth iteration of our online screening series. On this occasion, to acknowledge the crucial role artists play in inspiring and supporting other artists, we have asked currently exhibiting artist Steve Bishop to co-curate the series by inviting an artist that influenced and/or inspired him. Steve Bishop has invited London-based artist Sasha Litvintseva.

Working across film and research, Litvintseva’s work juxtaposes politics and leisure, remembering and forgetting, the monumental and the pictorial, the global and the personal, the human and the geologic and ultimately the infinite and every day at the intersection of media, ecology and the history of science. Her 2020 film, Every Rupture, interweaves those concepts through a very personal and expressive exploration of three “spaces”: a cruise ship during the Brexit referendum, a colony of birds unwittingly killing the forest they call home and a world in a pandemic.
