On Friday 24 Sep at 19.00 and 20.30 we continue our Tate Lates series with 2 free screenings of Belgian artist Hans Op de Beeck's Staging Silence 3. Programmed in dialogue with the Sophie Taeuber Arp exhibition, this imaginative video takes us inside an intricate world of miniature dioramas created using everyday materials, dramatic lighting and tricks of perspective.
All of Hans Op de Beeck's Staging Silence videos, the final of which is screened at Tate, were realised through similar principles, capturing two pairs of anonymous hands constructing fictional environments on a miniature film set just three square metres in size. They take the viewer on a visual journey through depopulated, enigmatic, but nonetheless playful places, which are built up and taken down before the eye of the camera. As illusions and disillusions take shape, viewers are pushed between material reality and dreamlike stories.
We hope that you can join us for these exciting screenings, which both include video introductions by the artist. The screenings require a free ticket, available to collect from the Starr Cinema on a first-come first served basis.
Join us after hours for a mix of art, music, film and food
