Time Revealing Truth at Tate Modern
Unassembled Information, Tamara Krikorian

Unassembled Information, Tamara Krikorian

Dates: 27 October 2009, 6.30-9pm | Location: Tate Modern, Starr Auditorium, London

During the Summer, the world lost two important British artists who pioneered the use of the moving image in the gallery during the 1970s: Tamara Krikorian and Tony Sinden. Both artists were featured in the conference Expanded Cinema: Activating the Space of Reception at Tate Modern in April.

In this celebratory programme, friends, partners and fellow artists will share recollections, show films and videos, and introduce video-interviews with both artists, followed by a reception. The evening is hosted by Stuart Comer and AL Rees.

‘Tamara Krikorian was a founding member of London Video Arts (LVA), and instigated collaborative shows of artists’ work including the first exhibition of video in Scotland, ‘Video Towards Defining an Aesthetic’, at the Third Eye Centre, Glasgow in 1976. She also organised conferences and art forums, and wrote a number of key texts during the early period. Krikorian’s work was complex in its layering of meanings, and lyrical, often exploring the blurred edges between representation and the real; the static and the moving, and her ambient electronic installations explored technological landscapes as well as the recorded images of landscape.’ – Jackie Hatfield

Tony Sinden’s career spanned three decades of substantial production, experiment and exhibition, and was presented at institutions including the ICA, Serpentine and Hayward Gallery; Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol and Third Eye Centre, Glasgow. He worked across mediums: single screen 16mm, expanded 16mm, video, installation, slide and site related. Sinden collaborated with the artist David Hall in the early to late 1970s, participating in inaugural shows such as ‘The Video Show’ at the Serpentine Gallery in 1975 with the seminal installation 101 TV Sets.

Admission is free, first come, first served.

This event has been organised by the British Artists Film and Video Study Collection at Central St Martins, College of Art & Design, REWIND, LUX, and Tate Modern.
