Breath Taking, 21 January 2017

Pavilion presents Breath Taking, a new work by artist Sarah Cole and filmmaker Annis Joslin with a group of women and their children. Set in the Golden Valley, Ashridge Estate designed by Capability Brown, the 6-minute film brings poetic play into the natural landscape. Referred to posthumously as ’the omnipotent magician’, Capability Brown’s tropes of distraction, deception and sleight of hand are evidenced in the film: a card shuffle, stem of broccoli and Mylar fabric serve to trick the eye.

A discussion with the artists and Pavilion producer Linzi Stauvers will follow a screening of the film. As part of the event art historian Griselda Pollock will also give an introduction to her recent thinking on 'new maternalisms’.

21 January, 2–4pm at The Tetley, Hunslet Rd, Leeds LS10 1JQ
