DRAF x Art Night
Artists: Neil Beloufa, Cyprien Gaillard, Lars Laumann, Nicolas Provost, David Shrigley, Frances Young Video Screening

This evening of screenings of video works from the David Roberts Collection brings together a wide array of artistic positions which oscillate between the factual and the fictional. The works document a setting or construct an imaginary one, to depict ideas of belonging and observation. The programme starts with a humorous tone, as we strain to see the room in which David Shrigley turns the lights on and off. Our quest then follows Nicolas Provost through the casinos and streets of the wild west, as his curious narrative unfolds with intrigue and suspicion. Frances Young’s abandoned entertainment park proposes a gloomier atmosphere, which crescendos into the silent night time demolition of a high-rise block in Cyprien Gaillard’s work. Taking a twist in tone, Neil Beloufa presents a speculative tale of a terrorist group inhabiting a lush Modernist villa. The blurring of fiction and documentation is furthered by Lars Laumann’s spurious mapping of seemingly unrelated references into an unlikely re-framing of an infamous event. Through this sequence of video works, we walk through current and historic, real and fictional interiors and built environments, and reconsider the emotional structures of public and private spaces.
