Hysteresis is a solo exhibition featuring an eponymously titled trilogy of three films by artist and filmmaker Morgan Quaintance including: Another Decade (2018), Anne, Richard and Paul (2018), and Early Years (2019), an account of one woman’s first generation diasporic experience in Britain newly commissioned by KARST.
Each film deals with how past events have informed our socio-cultural present. From art world debates of the 1990's to experimental music and developments in a British postwar family's life, the trilogy's ostensibly disparate subject matter is unified through a shared aesthetic language of 16mm film, standard definition video, archival footage and a commitment to progressive thought and action.
Morgan Quaintance is a London-based artist and writer. His moving-image work has been shown recently at LIMA, Amsterdam, Kunstmuseum, Bonn, Jerwood Space, London, the 14th Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, London Film Festival 2018, November Film Festival, the Palace International Film Festival, and Videonalle.17.
