Camden Arts Centre exhibition
You'll find two new Ben Rivers films alongside two older works at Camden Arts Centre this autumn. Look out for What Means Something (2015) centred around the painter Rose Wylie and her life as a creative in Kent. You'll also love There is a Happy Land Further Away (2015), which explores the landscapes – both physical and cultural – of the Republic of Vanuatu archipelago in the South Pacific. Two important earlier films will also be played include the enigmatic Phantoms of a Libertine (2012) – which probes into the mysterious life of an abandoned flat – and Ah, Liberty!, where viewers are invited to delve into the capricious innocence of a child’s imagination.
While you're there don't miss Edgelands - a group show curated by Ben Rivers alongside his solo exhibition. Featuring works by Catherine Opie, Max Ernst and Ralph Eugene, it is themed around the social, political and imaginary peripheries of cities and societies.
Dive into the strange and surreal world of Ben Rivers' films, which are so innately personal that the artist often lives alongside his subjects before each project begins.
