'Expect the transcendent at the 5th Edition of my unique, Avant-Garde, plastic art, installation, live music, popcorn, intervention, painting, Total art, Post-contemporary, exhibition, screening, live performance happening! With late bar till 2.30am' Granny Ludski, Exhibition-maker à‚  This major new addition to the exhibition landscape of East London, if not the world, continues. à‚  ‘Expect a totally surreal, totally bonkers happening across a variety of artistic platforms.' Time Out à‚  ‘At Home with the Ludskis' Burning Gran Festival (Edition #5) breaks away from the traditional art exhibition and the typical cinema going experience, to create something startling, thought provoking and even entertaining. All art genres — from painting and performance to sculpture and new media, are mixed together to produce a late night exhibition like no other. Curator Granny Ludskis pushes aside the mundane as she embraces the post contemporary with passion. ‘Your event looks lovely!' Annie Sprinkle à‚  Exhibition-maker Granny Ludski continues to pursue a true cross multi disciplinary approach to art and exhibition making that has been totally absent from the British Art scene. ‘FAB event' Divine David à‚  Is it impossible, Granny Ludski asked herself, to bring together artists working in many different disciplines, into one place, for one moment, to produce a meta-happening? ‘A truly alternative happening at this Dalston cinema space.'à‚  Time Out Curator Granny Ludski's search continues, allowing herà‚  to bring you a night of Art that is unpredictable and unusual; Smashing pigeon holes, breaking down boundaries and exhibiting Art and Performance, as varied as the audience. ‘From dada to grandma the beat goes on…' à‚ The Ludskis à‚  Info/proposals/contact/images e: theludskis@gmail.com t: +44 7425 14472 At Home With The Ludskis Rio Cinema, 107 Kingsland High Street, London, E8 2PB, UK ‘An intriguing event that smashes pigeonholes with risky ideas. If there's no future for that, there's no future for anything.' Alex Chappel à‚  http://www.facebook.com/AtHomeWithTheLudskis http://grannyludski.wordpress.com/ http://www.twitter.com/GrannyLudski http://www.riocinema.org.uk à‚  ‘I am inimitable!' Granny Ludski à‚  The Rio, the old, haunted, Art Deco cinema, in the very beating heart of the scene, sees the Ludskis return to produce a unique exhibition-screening-happening as a tribute to a special lady. In 1909 Clara Ludski, a Russian immigrant, founded the Kingsland Palace. This was the first electric picture house on the site on which the Rio Cinema now stands in all its distinctive Art Deco glory. Cinemas of this age and architectural distinction exist as rare hangovers from the MODERNIST era. These pagan temples house our Dreams, our Fears, our Love, our Madness as well as our codes of Honour. Like traditional hallowed places of worship and communion they impart to us a message about how we once lived and how we should live in the future. ‘Brilliant- such an incredible use of the cinema! Amazing atmosphere, amazing happenings - loved seeing the Rio filled with wildness.' ”¨Charlie Phillips, Sheffield Doc Fest Bored and drained by bogus exhibitions and the banal moving image screenings of cinema and gallery, Granny Ludski and the Ludskis wanted something more vital, with quality, depth and imagination. We found ourselves in direct conflict with the academic style and scholastic didacticism of Art Academy, Gallery, Museum and Biennale… This led ‘At Home with the Ludskis' to make a curation of a late night exhibition happening in the old haunted cinema in Dalston, Hackney. With a wide range of artists from different fields, providing startling moving image, surreal musicianship, eerie installation, seductive performance, every ‘At home with the Ludskis' Edition is a truly unique art event. All Art Forms Will Be There! ‘The saturated landscape of art, installations, performance and even fashion in the East London makes it easy to be dismissive, yet there's something about the Ludskis [happening] that suggests it should be taken a little more seriously than the rest. The avant-garde late night exhibition combines a number of mediums — from screenings to live music — and celebrates the rich history of the Dalston Rio's roots in Modernism. It might just be something people will be talking about for a while…' Thrill City London Ludskis or Nudniks you decide? ‘At Home with the Ludskis'à‚ is a curated programme with an open submission policy.
