ICA Quickfire: Screening of Energy Dairies
23 August 2012, 7.30pm
Free, booking required
An impromptu and informal screening of Energy Dairies in honour of Franz West, introduced by Sarah Lucas and Julian Simmons. Energy Dairies is a film of a conversation between Sarah Lucas, Philipp Quehenberger, Andreas Reiter Raabe, and Franz West.
Introducing the film, Gregor Muir, Executive Director ICA, Julian Simmons (who filmed the event) and Sarah Lucas will discuss in more detail what was said between the three artists - Lucas, Raabe and West - in the face of frequent sonic disruptions by Quehenberger, an electronic musician based in Vienna. The screening not only reflects on last year's ICA presentation of West's outdoor sculptures, but Lucas' special connection with the artist who became a friend soon after his 2003 Whitechapel exhibition.
