Lili Reynaud-Dewar: Cleda’s Chairs
April 26—Friday, April 2
The ICA presents Lili Reynaud-Dewar’s Cléda’s Chairs (2010), a 20-minute video that links together various temporal as well as thematic narrative strands. Three disparate stories are interwoven: in this process, the Greek trilogy of tragedies, “Oresteia”, meets modern Africa from the 1960’s/70’s and is combined with a contemporary reference from the French provinces.
Lili Reynaud-Dewar lives and works in Paris. Last year her works have been shown in solo exhibitions such as Antiteater (Frac Champagne Ardennes, Reims) and Interprétation (Kunsthalle Basel). She has contributed to numerous international group exhibitions, such as The Morality Series (Witte de With, Rotterdam, 2010), Elles@centrepompidou (Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2009), Kehraus- Abschied von stabilen Wänden (Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster, 2009) or When Things Cast No Shadow (5th Berlin Biennale, Berlin, 2008).
