Event Details

'Zaum Tractor' is a 2-screen video work filmed throughout Southern Russia as part of David Chesworth and Sonia Leber's recent 3-month residency in Rostov-on-Don. 'Zaum Tractor' addresses notions of freedom and collectivity though a series of architectural stagings of transrational 'zaum' poetry written by Russian Futurists one hundred years ago. The work also presents contemporary social spaces of athleticism and risk-taking, annual tractor races, displays of faith and patriotism, the machine-like playing of church bells and the resurgent modern-day Cossacks in Russia's south.

A parallel exhibition upstairs in Fehily Contemporary's Loft Gallery will feature a selection of prints
from a recent video work 'We Are Printers Too' .

From 30 January to 22 February - opening Saturday 1 February from 3pm to 5pm
