Overview

As part of WE (Not I), a week of events and seminars hosted at the South London Gallery, Raven Row and Flat Time House, the SLG hosts a screening that spans the work of Nashashibi/Skaer. 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.

Ambassador, (HD 2 screen composite) ProRes Quicktime file

The screening is followed by a discussion with the two artists on their collaborative practice, arising from their preparations and discussions around production of their upcoming new film during the WE (Not I) sessions.

Rosalind Nashashibi (b. 1973 Croydon, UK) and Lucy Skaer (b. 1975 Cambridge, UK) have collaborated under the moniker Nashashibi / Skaer since 2005. Previous exhibitions include; Jones, Koester, Nashashibi/Skaer: Reanimation at the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh in 2010; the traveling exhibition For the blind man in the dark room looking for the black cat that isn’t there, which originated at the Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis in 2009; Art Now: Pygmalion Event at the Tate Britain, London (2008); Pygmalion Workshop, CAC Bretigny, France (2008); and When Things Cast No Shadow – The 5th Berlin Biennial (2008). Both Skaer and Nashashibi have also exhibited extensively as individual artists. Nashashibi won the Beck’s Futures prize in 2003, and Skaer was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2009. In autumn 2016 they will exhibit their work at Tate St Ives.  

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) has been organised by the artist Melissa Gordon and the writer Marina Vishmidt, who have together previously, with Kaisa Lassinaro produced the publications LABOUR (2011) and PERSONA (2013). WE (Not I) will also take place at Artists Space, New York with a different group of participants in September 2015. The content developed during both sessions of WE (Not I) will be published in a series of magazines in 2015/16 edited by Vishmidt and Gordon. 

We (Not I) is supported by the Mondriaan Fund.
