Hedwig Houben Others and I

Dutch artist Hedwig Houben makes sculptural works that are mediated by film, performance and language. This, her first solo exhibition in the UK, will include a number of key works made over the last five years, encompassing film, performance, sculpture and text. At 8pm during the preview Houben performs Personal Matters and Public Affairs.

Roman Štětina and Miroslav Buriánek Instructions for use of Jiří Kolář

Czech artist Roman Štětina’s work investigates the ways in which broadcast media including film, television and radio are created. At Spike Island, Štětina presents a new feature-length film made in collaboration with Miroslav Buriánek—a long standing director of radio drama for Czech Radio—which traces the process of recording a series of poems by the Czech poet, artist and translator Jiří Kolář (1914-2002).

Hedwig Houben’s exhibition is supported by the Mondriaan Fund and Outset.

Roman Štětina and Miroslav Buriánek’s exhibition is organised in partnership with the Czech Centre London. Instructions for use of Jiří Kolář is commissioned by Jindrich Chalupecky Society. The exhibition Návod k použití Jiřího Koláře was presented at PLATO, Ostrava from 23 June to 19 September 2016.
