 ARTANGEL AT HORNSEY TOWN HALL

22 MAY – 1 JULY 2012

ADMISSION FREE

 

YAEL BARTANA

AND EUROPE WILL BE STUNNED

 

4 * Review here in the Evening Standard

 

http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/arts/visual-arts/yael-bartana-and-europe-will-be-stunned-hornsey-town-hall--review-7784560.html

 

And Europe Will Be Stunned, Israeli artist Yael Bartana’s powerful and challenging trilogy of films made in Poland between 2007 and 2011, will be presented by Artangel this summer in a special exhibition at Hornsey Town Hall.

 

The trilogy begins with Mary Koszmary (Nightmares). A young politician makes an incendiary speech in Warsaw’s empty Olympic Stadium. He calls for the return of 3.3 million Jews to their ancestral homeland. Responding to the callMur i Wieża (Wall and Tower) shows his idealistic followers, the Jewish Renaissance Movement in Poland (JRMiP), building a new settlement on the site of the Warsaw Ghetto. But the fences, barbed wire and a tower suggest an ominous future – a fear borne out in the final film in the trilogy, Zamach (Assassination). The politician lies in state, red and white roses on his chest, in Poland’s Palace of Culture. Struck down by an unknown assailant, he is grieved for by his wife, mourned and eulogised by members of the Movement.

 

As the trilogy unfolds it becomes increasingly unclear whether Bartana’s work is a fantasy, a hallucination or a nightmare. Her bold project blurs fiction and reality, connects traumatic pasts to worrying futures and opens up debates about nationhood and homelands in Europe and the Middle East. Who has the right to return? Who determines who belongs and who does not?

 

And Europe Will Be Stunned premiered to great acclaim in the Polish Pavilion at the 2011 Venice Biennale. The Council Chamber and other spaces will be used at Hornsey Town Hall to present the films and other materials associated with the project.

 

Opening times:

Tuesday and Wednesday 1 – 8pm

Thursday and Friday 1 – 9pm

Saturday and Sunday 12 – 6pm

22 May until 1 July 2012
