DINU LI: THE ANATOMY OF PLACE
Jun 23 - Jul 14, 2018
Dinu Li’s second solo exhibition at Danielle Arnaud brings together for the first time a newly completed trilogy of films entitled, The Anatomy of Place (2018). Shot over a ten-year period, the trilogy includes: Ancestral Nation (2007), Family Village (2009) and Nation Family (2017). The films amalgamate Li’s research from the past ten years, combining Super 8 footage, video, animation, performance, found images and personal archives. They are geographically specific to China, and invite questions relating to conflating histories and the essence of place.

Sep 15 - Oct 13, 2018
Private view Fri Sep 14 6pm - 9pm
An exhibition of drawings, writings and other multimedia artworks that takes as its starting point, Koko, the gorilla’s address to the Paris United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 21) in 2015. Taught from infancy by US researcher Dr Penny Patterson Koko ‘understood’ over 2000 spoken English words and the equivalent in signs before her recent death in June 2018 aged 46. Her grasp of language was comparable to a 5-year old human child. At COP 21 she ‘spoke’ with her hands and arms, as ‘the voice of nature’. She said, ‘man stupid’, ‘nature see you’, ‘fix nature’. For this new body of work Coutts draws on five of the signed phrases Koko used during her address to look at what happens with ‘language’ when we attempt to form greater intimacies with neighbouring species.
