Saskia Olde Wolbers in Conversation
Thursday, 22 May 2014 from 18:30 to 20:30 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Artist Saskia Olde Wolbers will be in conversation with writer and Whitechapel Gallery film curator Gareth Evans, discussing Yes, these Eyes are the Windows and her work in general.
Saskia Olde Wolbers was born in the Netherlands in 1971 and now lives and works in London. Applying a process of research into oral history, literary works and academic text to her audio installation with Artangel, Olde Wolbers brings into focus two important aspects of her work, the voice over and the composed sound track. Ordinarily known for her video work, she creates fictional narratives linked to real life events, often those that are in the public eye.
Gareth Evans is a writer, curator, presenter and Whitechapel Gallery’s Film Curator. He programmes PLACE, the annual cross-platform festival at Aldeburgh Music, is Co-Director of production agency Artevents and has curated numerous film and event seasons across the UK. He conceived and curated the major London season 'John Berger: Here is Where We Meet' in 2005 and co-curated 'All Power to the Imagination! 1968 and its Legacies' in 2008. He produced the essay film Patience (After Sebald) by Grant Gee as part of his nationwide arts project 'The Re-Enchantment' (2008 – 2011) and currently has three long-form works in production. He edits Artesian and runs Go Together Press.
