Moyra Davey, Still from My Saints, 2014
Moyra Davey | My Saints
Apr 18 – Aug 8, 2021
Kestner Gesellschaft
Hannover, Germany

With its project space, the Kestner Gesellschaft is establishing another new format. The space will mainly present films by international artists alongside the exhibitions. The first artist to be featured is Moyra Davey from Canada, who works in photography as well as film and makes writing her artistic practice.

Moyra Davey’s films consist of loosely connected, moving images and contain personal narratives that resemble internal monologues. By relating her own experiences to those of well-known artists, writers, and philosophers, Davey’s films are also reflections on the nature of existence, thought, and the human condition. In the film My Saints (2014), for example, she asks her family and friends about The Thief’s Journal, the radical, semi-autobiographical novel by the French writer Jean Genet.

    International

    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)
