Co-presented by the PHI Foundation for Contemporary Art and Film POP:
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Relic Traveller: Where You And I Come From, We Know That We Are Not Here Forever by Larry Achiampong, this screening reunites the works of Gillian Dykeman, Larry Achiampong, and long-term collaborator David Blandy.
In Finding Fanon Trilogy, Larry Achiampong and David Blandy recount a disastrous past. In these films, the human condition is pieced together from personal narratives set in a fictive future. Inspired by the lost plays of Frantz Fanon, Achiampong and Blandy consider Fanon’s ideas and examine post-colonial politics, in order to understand how these societal issues affect their own relationship. In Dispatches from the Feminine Utopia, Gillian Dykeman experiments with the idea of a future feminist utopia led by major earthworks. In her fictive future, these earthworks play a part in alien technology, which guide us all into a feminist utopia.
