The first in the new series of Filmarmalade Presents… is a screening of Ralitza Petrova's By the Grace of God.

About

By the Grace of God follows the tragic odyssey of the character Jürgen whose attempts to make contact with his imagined mother, the Queen of England, leads him to a sense of personal crisis, of aporia. Petrova's film portrays Jürgen as a tormented outsider, ill at ease with the travails of contemporary life, who is destined to be 'a man of the time', a nobody searching for his illuminated heroes. The evening will also include a round table discussion between the artist Ralitza Petrova, Elena Crippa and Gordon Shrigley.

Ralitza Petrova recently exhibited work at the Pompidou, Paris, the Cannes Film Festival, the San Sebastian International Film Festival, the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, the Bargehouse Gallery, London and at the Freunde der Deutschen cinema, Berlin. She was born in Bulgaria and lives and works in London.

Thoughout 2011 IMT Gallery will be screening the following artists film and video works published by Filmarmalade: Aukje Dekker, Kristian De La Riva, Emily Russell, Luciano Zubillaga and Ralitza Petrova.

Filmarmalade is an artist run project established to publish on DVD selected artistsʼ films and video works, so as to encourage a wider access to the moving image and to allow a greater understanding, through specially commissioned interviews of how each artist situates their work, in relation to the history of art and contemporary fine art practice.
