Indian Summer 2017: artist talk Ben Rivers
Ben Rivers (b.1972, Somerset, UK), lives in London
The films of experimental filmmaker Ben Rivers are imaginations of alternative existences in marginal worlds of wilderness. The artist uses near-antique cameras and hand develops the 16 mm film, the materiality of the medium forming part of the narrative. Recent exhibitions took place at The Renaissance Society (Chicago, 2016), Kunstverein (Hamburg, 2016), Camden Arts Centre (London, 2015), Artangel (London, 2013), Temporary Gallery (Cologne, 2014), The Douglas Hyde Gallery (Dublin, 2013), Hepworth (Wakefield, 2012) and Matt’s Gallery (London, 2011). The artist is represented by Kate MacGrarry (London).
