MOR HO! COLLECTIVE PRESENT A WEEK OF 'RURAL' AT THE RED GALLERY 27/07/2013 TILL 02/08/2013


  • RED GALLERY 1-3 Rivington Street London, England, EC2A 3DT United Kingdom

ART/ SLOVAK & BRITISH FILMS / SEEDS OF MUSIC: in collaboration with RCA, DocHeads and Fest Anca

“Mor ho!” Collective would like to invite you to a weeklong event consisting of a group exhibition, film screenings and seeds of music. The interlinking theme and inspiration source is “rural” – something that is outside of the urban (dis)comfort zone.

The exhibition will present collaboration between “Mor ho!” Collective and MA Photography students from theRoyal College of Art. Most of the works shown here came into existence during a collective retreat to a farm called La Trousse in Burgundy.

Three film nights will offer a mixture of Slovak & British films consisting of three different genre evenings. The first evening will be devoted to Czechoslovak New Wave Cinema, the second to animation and the third evening to documentaries; all curated through collaboration with various partners.

During the opening and closing nights, there will be music provided by “Mor Ho!” Collective members, friends, and special guests.

EXHIBITION

“Mor ho!” Collective in collaboration with MA Photography students at the Royal College of Art and Red Gallery

The main part of the work shown in the exhibition came into existence during an escape to the French countryside. Most of the artists spent together ten days on a farm called La Trousse in Burgundy. At this isolated location, they explored the romantic influences and worked both around and within the limitations of their environment.

Exhibiting artists:

Alix Marie, Tereza Zelenkova, Petra Kubisova, Katarina Hruskova, Peter Watkins, Lucia Scerankova and Marian Grolmus

FILM NIGHTS

Come float into ‘rural’ through our selection of award winning Slovakian and British films chosen in collaboration with DocHeads and Fest Anca. Spread over three days, on each of the evenings there are different genres, such as fiction, animation, and documentary. We also invited a few directors to share their experiences with you.

All Slovak films will have English subtitles.

MUSIC

This time music will stand right at the periphery of events. Live performances and DJ sets will play to celebrate the opening and closing of Rural events. The selected sonic landscapes will all meet up on the rural stage offering a unique chance to escape from the (dis)comfort zone.
