OFF-SITE at Brunel Goods Shed, Stroud, GL5 3AP

OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY 4th May 6-9pm

INDEX is proud to open the 2013 SITE Festival, with a newly-commissioned installation by renowned artist

Siobhán Hapaska. Curated by Helen Kincaid.

In Hapaska’s dramatic new work, the sky has to turn black before you can see the stars, made specifically for the Brunel Goods Shed in Stroud, five uprooted olive trees are suspended within a scaffolding cube, each tree yoked to a motor, creating unsettling yet magical vibrations. The trauma of uprooting clashes with this exuberant and abundant movement – a continuous ecstatic last gasp, extending the possibility of change and hope.

OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY 3rd May 6-8pm

ARTIST TALK: THURSDAY 9th May 7 pm – 9pm (free)

INDEX is proud to show Jordan Baseman’s acclaimed 2011 film Green Lady, together with the British premiere of his 2011 film Tokyo = Fukushima.

Green Lady is a visual and emotional assault: a bombardment of colour and light. The visual material is syncopated to the narrator’s speech patterns, mirroring her emotive tale of watching her mother die.

Tokyo = Fukushima is a time-lapse, stop-frame animated film of the city of Tokyo, six months after the nuclear meltdown at Fukushima.
