Surprise

Five artists are invited for a film screening of ‘Maya Deren, The Divine Horsemen. The Living Gods of Haiti (1947-51)’ at E:vent. After the screening participants take a cab to an offsite location for the second part of the evening, this is the surprise bit. The group then return to the gallery for informal discussion around ideas of surprise, chance, possession.

This evening event is part of CØDEshop - in its present form CØDEshop is a series of interconnected events and activities initiated by Verina Gfader and Colm Lally that emerges out of a concern with event-structures; These are conceived as fundamental to address contemporary issues on the sites of cultural producers, audience, institutions. While the separation of these different nodes in an expanding network does not operate any longer, the mutation and becoming of other sites opens out a discussion of re-addressing the context, the parameters and conditions in which these new or variable sites operate.
