UK premiere and panel discussion


This November, Phillip Warnell presents a screening of his latest short film work, made in collaboration with French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy. Outlandish: Strange Foreign Bodies premieres at the South London Gallery as part of its Live Art & Film programme. In the 20 minute film (35mm, French with English subtitles), the eminent philosopher and heart transplant recipient Jean-Luc Nancy meditates on the history and integrity of bodies: their secrets, their touching, their annihilation and strangeness. The film presents a number of visual and literary passages, each exploring the correlate between a narrative by Nancy, his on screen presence, a surgical organ in search of a body and an unaccounted for, displaced invertebrate at sea.
