7 - 10 April 2022 (09/04/2022)

FOCUS: Zina Saro-Wiwa followed by an in-person Q&A with Professor Sarah Perks(14:45 pm – 16:15 pm CET)

Esteemed artist and filmmaker, Zina Saro-Wiwa, presents a specially curated screening and in-person conversation on her film and video work, including a special preview of an in-development epic feature.

From founding the alt-Nollywood movement to a near-mystical obsession with food and drink, Saro-Wiwa’s oeuvre is characterised by storytelling that expands beyond belief systems, producing unique visual encounters that cross geographical, cultural, and metaphysical space. Saro-Wiwa’s films and video installations combine personal and collective emotion with pop culture, reworking global historical cinematic genres from melodrama and sci-fi to biblical epic in order to consider legacies of trauma, historical memory, and the otherworldly potential to transcend them. Here, Saro-Wiwa shares existing works including the influential cult-classic Phyllis (2010), The Deliverance of Comfort (2010), and her acclaimed Table Manners series (2014-2019), alongside the inspiration, ideas, and extracts for a new feature-length work, Eucharia. The session will be moderated by curator and film producer, Professor Sarah Perks, who has a long-standing interest in the artist’s work.
