THE VOICE AND THE LENS

https://www.facebook.com/events/300988746731456/

The Voice and the Lens is a festival exploring the treasures of the human voice, conjured up for our eyes through film and performance. Over three days, the programme features works by 55 artists, musicians and film-makers, ranging from classics to recent and brand new works.
For the festival finale, the Whitechapel Gallery hosts an afternoon of films and performances by 20 artists. Highlights include: Bill Viola’s Anthem; Bruce McLean and Adam de la Cour’s Drumstick; Anri Sala’s Answer Me; Robert Ashley’s classic Atalanta Strategy; recent work by Imogen Stidworthy, Helen Petts, Laure Prouvost and Lina Lapelyte; and specially-made new work by AMAE and Pier Giorgio De Pinto with philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy.
The relationship between the voice and the camera is a filter through which we explore a number of linked ideas, in particular: sound and image; original and copy; liveness and mediation; presence and absence. And it ultimately stages the relationship between different ways of experiencing and constructing individual and collective self-identities.
