Fou Gallery is delighted to invite you to join the film screening of Fire at Sea (Watch Trailer) - a 2016 Italian documentary film written and directed by Gianfranco Rosi. As the winner of Golden Bear for Best Film at the Berlin Film Festival, Rosi spent months living on the island of Lampedusa and captured the daily life of the islanders. Focusing on 12-year-old Samuele from a local fishing family, the film concerns the complicated reality during the European migrant crisis. The screening accompanies Fou Gallery's current exhibition Morgan O’Hara: LIVE TRANSMISSION in the Dark. During the screenings, Morgan O’Hara will watch the film with the audience and create LIVE TRANSMISSION drawings on-site.

About the Exhibition:

O’Hara’s 30-year practice of the LIVE TRANSMISSION series is related to her residency in Italy in 1989 when she was invited by Italian collector Carlo Cattelani to do a commission for his collection. Sitting for hours at dinners with many people and not yet fluent in Italian, she began to make small drawings, tracking the buoyant gestures of the Italian speakers. This small process grew into a 3000-drawing practice over many years. In Morgan O’Hara: LIVE TRANSMISSION in the Dark, Fou Gallery presents 10 drawings from Morgan O’Hara’s LIVE TRANSMISSION series and several site-specific wall drawings that interact with the architectural elements of the gallery’s brownstone space.

纽约—否画廊诚挚地邀请您参加电影《海上火焰》的放映活动(点击观看预告片)。《海上火焰》是一部2016年由意大利导演吉安弗兰克·罗西执导的108分钟的记录片,荣获第66届柏林电影节最佳影片金熊奖。为拍摄本片,导演罗西在兰佩杜萨岛上生活数月,记录原住民的日常生活。电影跟随十二岁男孩赛缪勒的视角,交替展现了岛民宁静质朴的生活和非法难民颠沛流离的旅程。此次电影放映活动与否画廊目前的展览《摩根·奥哈拉:黑暗中的场境转换》相结合,放映期间,艺术家摩根·奥哈拉会与您一同观影,并现场创作场境转换绘画。

关于展览:

奥哈拉长达30年的“场境转换”系列作品的创作与她1989年在意大利的艺术家驻地项目有关。当时她受收藏家Carlo Cattelani委托,在博德納创作。夏日的意大利晚宴耗时漫长,当时意大利语并不流利的奥哈拉感觉被隔绝于人群之外,她开始寻求另一种表达方式,在觥筹交错的餐桌底下偷偷开始用纸和铅笔跟踪记录记录意大利人讲话时夸张的手势。被主人发现的她本以为会受到责备,而Cattelani却称赞“能够重新见到这样的古典绘画真是太美好了”。此后,奥哈拉创作了3000余幅的场境转换系列绘画。否画廊的展览《摩根·奥哈拉:黑暗中的场境转换》呈现艺术家奥哈拉著名绘画系列“场境转换(LIVE TRANSMISSION)”中10幅关于表演艺术的绘画,以及艺术家本人根据否画廊的传统褐石建筑结构绘制的墙画。
