Join the core cast in the filming of a party held for Genesis, the main character in Oreet Ashery’s Stanley Picker Fellowship film Revisiting Genesis. Dress casual, no jeans or black clothing. Please bring a packet of crisps or sweets. Pets Welcome!
Staged with a participating audience, artist Oreet Ashery films her Stanley Picker Fellowship project Revisiting Genesis, a web series looking at the processes of dying, digital afterlife and legacy, outsider communities, friendships and reincarnations of women artists. Premiering in a solo exhibition at the Stanley Picker Gallery in spring 2016, and released simultaneously online, Revisiting Genesis features a nurse who creates biographical slideshows for those actively preparing for death and Genesis, an artist in need of a slideshow.
Revisiting Genesis is supported by The Wellcome Trust, public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and by The Gallery at Tyneside Cinema and waterside contemporary.
