Magical Surfaces at Parasol Unit, filmed by The Art Channel
The Art Channel visits an exhibition investigating the ‘Uncanny’ in Art Photography. We look at the sensation of both strangeness and familiarity in an image. Focussing on individual works by Sonja Braas, David Claerbout, Julie Monaco and Joel Sternfeld, the film explores how ‘magical surfaces’ arise from photographs which are animated, invented and staged.

William Kentridge at Marian Goodman Gallery, London.
More Sweetly Play The Dance is an eight screen film installation made using performers and drawings that borrows from the Medieval tradition of the Danse Macabre. William Kentridge creates an African funereal procession that celebrates life while warding off death. It echoes the flight of refugees seeking sanctuary today. Elsewhere in the show, Kentridge has made large ink wash paintings that blends together Chinese Marxist propaganda, traditional Chinese art and Manet’s last flower paintings.
