ARTPROJX and STEVENSON are pleased to present four short films by Penny Siopis at the Prince Charles Cinema in London as part of the Frieze Art Fair VIP programme. The screening will be introduced by writer/curator TJ Demos in conversation with the artist.
Based in Cape Town, Siopis has been exploring ‘the poetics of vulnerability’ in various media, including painting and installation, since the 1970s. Siopis combines sequences of found 8mm film with sound and text (appearing as subtitles) to shape stories about people caught up, often traumatically, in larger political and social upheavals. Siopis writes: ‘The elemental qualities of these stories appeal to me as they speak to questions far beyond their specific historical origins.’
