MURMUR #7 Reading Series
Sunday 9th December | 7-9pm
Free entry




ED ATKINS is an artist who makes videos, writes and draws, developing a complex and deeply figured discourse around definition, wherein the impossibilities for sufficient representations of the physical, specifically corporeal, world — from computer generated imagery to bathetic poetry — are hysterically rehearsed.

Recent solo presentations include Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin; MMK Frankfurt; DHC/ART, Montréal (all 2017); Castello di Rivoli, Turin; The Kitchen, New York (both 2016); Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2015) and The Serpentine Gallery, London (2014). Ed last appeared in Manchester for Performance Capture, his exhibition at Manchester International Festival 2015.

An anthology of his texts, A Primer for Cadavers, was published by Fitzcarraldo Editions in 2016, and an extensive artist’s monograph from Skira was published in 2017. Forthcoming projects include solo exhibitions at Kunsthaus Bregenz and K21, Düsseldorf, and a novel, Old Food.

Ed is currently guest professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He lives and works in Berlin and Copenhagen.

In 2012 she was awarded the Murphy & Cadogan Contemporary Art Award from The San Francisco Foundation.

Fatema’s first narrative short documentary, Heidi, had its world premiere at Locarno Film Festival, won Best Debut Film at Cinalfama Lisbon International Film Awards, and went on to screen in competition at film festivals including Sundance: Hong Kong, L’Alternativa Festival de Cinema Independent in Barcelona and Bushwick International Film Festival, New York.
