August - October 2020
F(r)ictions pairs up with The 87 Press to bring you four films across the autumn season, melding video and poetry. The first film by Samra Mayanja, Scripted for a wayward narrator, 'borrows from Saidiya Hartman’s process of 'critical fabulation' (2008), and constructs slow fictional narratives about two members of the artist's family and their cyclical road to death and exile'.
The second installation is a short film by Sarah Gaafar: Let's go to lunch, habibi explores ideas of abandonment, anger and longing through disrupted and fragmented storytelling.
Further artists to be announced!
