For one month Sadie Coles HQ will be filled with FILMS. The exhibition presents an expanded notion of film and is a celebration of this exceptionally diverse and detailed medium, beloved of artists, now being superseded by new digital technologies. Works will be shown on a variety of formats, specifically 35mm slides, video, 8mm and 16mm film. Each week will showcase work by a different artist:
Sausage Film, 1990, Betacam SP
he first and only film by Lucas is the epitome of her confrontational style: the artist saucily skins, slices and eats a sausage and a banana.
Thursday 17 – Saturday 19 January

‘It was in the '70s that they found this tomb. It was guarded by these terracotta warriors and now they have found ten thousand of them...’
