Madyha Leghari ‘Choose Your Own Father’

on http://delta.flattimeho.org.uk/

The commission derives from extensive archival research into John Latham’s early history in Zambia, drawing upon his father’s involvement in an educational travelling film programme in the 1930s.

The work, which is re-edited through code each time it is played, presents the viewer with a unique version whenever the web page is refreshed.

18/12/2020

Choose Your Own Father, the first UK project by Pakistan-based artist Madyha Leghari is available to view now on Flat Time House's new online platform, delta.flattimeho.org.uk. The commission derives from extensive archival research into John Latham’s early history in Zambia, fictionalising personal histories of Latham’s father and interweaving these with those of Leghari's own father. Ultimately, she uses the figure of the father as a metaphor to speak about paternalistic order, the fantasy of “The West”, myths of origin and whether one can ever be free to choose one’s own fathers.

Produced as an outcome of the Delta (Δ) Research Placement, the film is anchored by a consistent voiceover but is edited afresh through code each time it is played. It has an exact mathematical number of permutations but these amount to far more than what is possible to view. In this sense, the film is poised between control and fatalism, akin to how one might imagine one’s influences.

Padraig Robinson: Five Short Stories on Fire

on delta.flattimeho.org.uk

Daily screenings at 8pm local time (all time zones)

The film takes place in one day in the life of The Novelist (Anne von Keller), who is beginning the first day of writing a book called Five Short Stories on Fire. The day follows her through her domestic space; sleeping, eating, writing and researching, where she encounters the environmental historian Stephen J. Pyne (played by himself). During the course of the day the Novelist seems haunted by ‘The Wanderer’ (Francesco Vellei), who may in fact be a fictional character she is writing, one whose relationship with fire is very different from her own. The film begins with the Novelist waking up, and ends with her falling asleep.

Posted @withregram • @art360fdn A Tribute to prolific artist and activist, Barbara Steveni, by close collaborator and friend, Laure Prouvost, can now be read on our website and issuu page: art360foundation.org.uk/barbara-steveni-tribute.

Our thanks to Laure Prouvost for sharing the following texts, and to the Estate of Barbara Steveni for their involvement in the Tribute,

I, A Letter to Barbara Steveni from Laure Prouvost & ‘Man’

II, A Conversation In the Garden about the connection of everything at the same time with Laure Prouvost, Barbara Steveni and Anna Goertz.

This Tribute, generously shared by Prouvost, is a testimony to the extraordinary life and legacy of an artist whose archive, work and ideas continue to inspire creators and thinkers across generations. The life’s work of Barbara Steveni is an invaluable resource for the present and future, and we are grateful to have been able to support the development of Steveni’s archive in her lifetime through our programme.

Barbara Steveni is renowned for having conceived and co-founded the Artist Placement Group (APG) in London in 1966. APG actively sought to reposition the role of the artist within a wider social context, including government and commerce, while at the same time playing an important part in the history of conceptual art in the 1960s and 1970s.

Steveni’s most recent work before sadly passing away in February 2020, I AM AN ARCHIVE, gathered artists and professionals across three generations in a series of participatory and documentary walks, taking place in the site of the original APG placements, exploring the potential to reactivate and re-contextualise APG methodologies today.

Padraig Robinson’s Five Short Stories on Fire encounters John Latham’s deployment of books and fire as temporality and event, using the broadcast format as a way to talk about the screen itself as a territory of attention. The commission sees Padraig Robinson experiment with a new direction, drawing on the domestic context of Flat Time House.

OPEN CALL

Flat Time House in partnership with UP Projects is delighted to announce the open call for Constellations 2020-21, a free artist development programme that supports eight uk based artists to explore socio-political issues, community orientation practice, and public contexts.

This years iteration will also consider the digital realm as a platform for collaboration, engagement, and exchange as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are looking for artists who are interested in experimenting with alternative forms of learning and exploring the challenges and opportunities of the digital realm.

Starting in July, the programme will be structured around a series of artist-led and self-led workshops taking place both online and offline over the course of 8 months.

SUNG TIEU | FORMATIVE YEARS ON DEARTH
Opens Sat 20 April 6-9pm

Organised with Parrhesiades

Continues to: 11 May

Sung Tieu has collated, staged and reinterpreted a selection of material from extensive research of the John Latham archive. Selected documents mesh and interweave Tieu’s personal histories with those of John Latham creating a visual essay throughout Flat Time House. This intuitive personal account uses Latham’s voice to entangle the private and the personal with global social and financial narratives.

Formative Years On Dearth acts as the inauguration of our partner Parrhesiades, a multi-platform project for artists working with language, either written, spoken or otherwise performed.

The project takes place over three physical venues in Camberwell and Peckham. These are identified as The Yard, The Room and The Institution. The work also appears online.

The Yard and The Room are walking distance from FTHo and open from 12-6pm.

Thanks to Lynton Talbot
