Fou Gallery is delighted to invite you to join the film screening of The Tree of Wooden Clogs (Watch Trailer) - a 1978 Italian film written and directed by Ermanno Olmi. The film concerns Lombard peasant life in a cascina (farmhouse) of the late 19th century. It has some similarities with the earlier Italian neorealist movement, in that it focuses on the lives of the poor, and the parts were played by real farmers and locals, rather than professional actors. The workshop is inspired by 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《木屐树》的放映活动(点击观看预告片)。《木屐树》由意大利著名导演埃曼诺·奥米编写并执导,于1978年上映。影片主要讲述十九世纪末期佃农在农场的生活。与早期的意大利新现实主义电影运动相似的是,本片聚焦于穷苦人民的生活,部分角色并非由专业演员饰演,而是由真实的意大利农民本色出演。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。
