People who have saved this event:



Showing alongside Jonathan Owen's sculptures and drawings, will be a screening of avant-garde British filmmaker John Smith's seminal film 'The Girl Chewing Gum'. Shot in a single take on a street corner in Hackney in 1976, it presents Smith's brilliant and de-stabilising direction of ordinary life, opening up a fascinating conversation with Owen's work on the nature of authorial control, the presence and absence of subject and the structural balance between the real and the constructed.
