NOOR AFSHAN MIRZA & BRAD BUTLER THE SCAR
Feb 10 - Mar 31, 2018
Private view Fri Feb 9 6pm - 8pm
Together we are barrelling towards the scene of the accident at 120 kilometres an hour. Noor Afshan Mirza and Brad Butler’s fiction film installation weaves together conspiracy, gangster, noir, politics, fantasy and reality into a disrupted narrative and exploration of genre. Across three chapters that all end in a car crash, The Scar tells its story from the position of the female passenger, Yenge. Through her journey, we begin to address corrupt systems that hold power, explore ways to ‘get out’ of the car and begin to imagine an alternative society no longer dominated by patriarchy. Mirza and Butler work in an international context and are interested in expanded notions of art that turn to such areas as the ectoplasm of neoliberalism, state enforced violence, and women’s bodies as sites of resistance. A new HOME commission with no.w.here in partnership with FLAMIN, Spectre Productions, Delfina Foundation, Centre national des arts plastiques, Edith-Russ-Haus and Óngels barcelona.
