Blain|Southern have teamed up with Vinyl Factory to debut never-before-seen works from trailblazing video artist Bill Viola’s early career. Exploring the resonances of an empty swimming pool, two works are featured, The Talking Drum and Hornpipes, forming an immersive exhibition at Brewer Street Car Park. Recordings of these performances will also be presented as a limited edition vinyl of 100, accompanied by an excerpt from a series of experimentations.
Bill Viola’s The Talking Drum runs from 13th October – 7th November at Brewer Street Car Park, London, W1F 0LA. www.thevinylfactory.com
So the worst kept secret in the art world is finally out Blain/Southern is finally over – the drip drip feed of senior staff leaving, artists in dispute, and the overstretching of the company with the opening of their New York space has reached its final destination.
