SCHQ Electric presents John Bock’s 2017 feature-length film Hell’s Bells. Starring leading German actors including Bibiana Beglau, Lars Eidinger, Laurenz Leky and Frank Seppeler, the work transforms the genre of the ‘Western’ into a gothic melodramatic and meandering story of horror and romance, populated by allegorical characters.
Regen Projects presents the United States premiere of Three Sisters, a new film and installation by Berlin-based German artist John Bock.
The centerpiece of the exhibition presents a large-scale installation featuring the props and stage set for Three Sisters, the accompanying film playing in the side gallery. The film tells the story of three siblings who come together to avenge the untimely death of one of the sisters’ young daughters. Evoking tropes of slapstick and farce, the narrative explores themes of repressed desire, fear, loss, anger, and tragedy.
