Screening: Trulee Hall Selects II
While her exhibition remains closed, Trulee Hall has curated a trilogy of online screenings, showcasing a selection of works by artists whose practices she admires and whose work influences or has a synergy with her own. The screenings venture through pioneering experimental animation, the complexities of female sexuality, trippy science fiction, and virtual realities, with a different programme each week.
For the second in the series, Hall offers up an alternative Valentine's Day special; a double feature of unorthodox sexuality and desire, from deep in the past to far in the future. Mary Reid Kelley's Swinburne’s Pasiphae (2014) tells the unlikely story of the mythological Minotaur’s conception. Using an existing poem by Victorian poet Algernon Charles Swinburne, the story stages an interaction between master artisan Daedalus and the Minotaur’s mother, the bewitched Minoan Queen Pasiphae, who is cursed with an insatiable wish to mate with a beautiful bull. Set a million years from now, Mike Kuchar's fantastic Sins of the Fleshapoids (1965) reveals a debased future where humanity has forsaken science for self-indulgence and erotic pleasure. A race of enslaved Androids, undertakes all labour, until a rebellious Robot, tired of pleasuring his masters, decides to join the humans in sin.
