Klaus Lutz: Performances for Screens
Wed, 11 Mar 2020, 7–8.30pm, Leeds
Shot almost entirely in Lutz’s tiny East Village apartment in the 1990s and 2000s, the films – which harness performance, animation and intricate multiple exposure on 16mm film – speak to the earliest origins of cinema, while folding in the legacy of twentieth-century performance work. For this special event we present both single-screen films and Lutz’s unique double-projections onto both the screen and a large white balloon, creating convex, circular images.
Despite having shown worldwide, including solo shows in Zurich, New York and elsewhere, Lutz’s work has never before screened in the UK.
Curated and introduced by Lutz’s friend and peer, artist Hannes Schüpbach.
