Dilston Grove, London until 17 April 2016
Hours: Thursday – Sunday 11am – 5pm (until 7pm on Saturday 16 April as below)
Join us on Saturday 16 April to mark the final weekend of Brink with special timed screenings of Priit Pärn’s Hotel E (1992) at the gallery from 3-7pm (looped on the half hour).
Brink will be open over at our Dilston Grove gallery from 11am – 7pm.
Produced in Estonia at the time of independence during the collapse of the USSR, Pärn’s acclaimed animation sits in an ambivalent position switching between a sterile pastel-coloured vision of the american dream and a grim dystopic vision of Eastern European drones:
“Hotel E a resident moves into an adjoining room at the Hotel E. One room is dark and gloomy while the other is colourful and wonderful. This was made as the cold war came to its halt and serves as a warning to our society” Priit Pärn.
Free admission, no booking required.
Last admission 6.30pm
Refreshments will be available between 3-7pm at the gallery.
On Sunday 17th April we will be open from 11am – 5pm as usual.
Hotel E is presented with thanks to Priit Pärn and Eesti Joonisfilm, Tallinn.
Curated by Matt Carter
Brink explores limits, extremes and the unease caused at the point of shifting perception. Exhaustion, perpetuity and frustration feature prominently, resonating with the frenetic landscape of contemporary London. For more information on brink please click here.
