Tereza Buskova & Matthew Cowan: Experiments in Ritual

Friday 30 November 2012, 6-8.30pm
November LAST Fridays

Tereza Buskova and Matthew Cowan share a common passion for folklore. Buskova often draws specifically on her native Czechoslovakian tradition while Cowan has the distance of a New World perspective on European tradition.

Earlier this year Buskova and Cowan joined Tamsyn Challenger in her ongoing investigations into Monoculture. The three set out to cross-fertilise each other’s practice.

This special screening will premier new screen works from this engagement.

Buskova presents her new film Baked Woman of Doubice, for which both Cowan and Challenger made costumes and Cowan presents The Barbers Pole and The Devils.

Baked Woman of Doubice and The Barbers Pole are single screen video works made in response to notions of monoculture. Both works are filmed in agricultural settings where, paradoxically, idiosyncratic practices often linger on in the presence of a homogenized culture of cash crops.
