Nadia Hebson & others @ Arcade Fine Arts

9 June 2017 - 29 July 2017

A collaboration between Drop City and Arcade, London on CHOREOGRAPHY, an exhibition with a series of accompanying events, organised and complied by Paul Becker. The exhibition takes as its starting point the work of the French writer/director Marguerite Duras and in particular, two of her films: India Song (1975) and Baxter, Vera Baxter (1977). In both films, as in many of the novels, a central figure, herself inert, acts as the epicentre. In one film, she lies in bed all day, never leaves her house while the rest of the characters constellate around her story. In the other film, she moves ‘alone, queen like’ through various ambassadorial parties and stilted, stylised and detached entanglements with a series of beautiful young men. Both films trace the choreography of these central lacunae that delineates and encrypts desire but are themselves disconnected from any emotional life.
