Rosalind Nashashibi and Lucy Skaer have, alongside their individual practices, been making films together since 2005, these collaborative films invoke images that attempt to enact transformations among actors, objects and contexts. This is the first time all of their collaborative films are presented together.

WE (Not I)
Beginning with a week of events across South London Gallery, Flat Time House and Raven Row, the discussions and presentations of WE (Not I) will revolve around the topics of: accumulation in collaborative art practice, the development of a “we” (non-singular) voice in art authorship, the gendered nature of art historic genius, female value, piracy, empathy as a radical position, and the edges of the self in relation to both circulated imagery and the medicated body.
Daily private work meetings between the female participants will evolve in a way that both reflects and enacts the idea of the 'non-singular' voice of artistic production. Sharing and discussion throughout the week will be the principal mode of practice, acting as a site of productive space for each of the participants.
We (Not I) is supported by the Mondriaan Fund.
