‘Its origins are indeterminate’ premieres at Whitechapel Gallery and Close-up Film Centre

The screening series ‘Its origins are indeterminate’ features an array of international artists in four programmes, curated by Erik Martinson – the recipient of our Special Projects Award. Three of the programmes are premiering at Whitechapel Gallery, and the fourth, a feature length work, screens at Close-Up Film Centre.

‘Its origins are indeterminate’ examines the concept of ‘language-as-a-virus.’ As carriers of meaning, words and images are vulnerable to intervention and corruption. The works presented test and bend the limits of language, send out new versions of media to spread, and breakdown systems of controlling grammar.

On Wednesday March 14, Anne McGuire’s feature length video work ‘Strain Andromeda The’ will be presented at Close-Up Film Centre. Details and ticket information through the link below:


Then, on Saturday March 17, three programmes of artists’ moving image works will be presented at Whitechapel Gallery. Details and ticket information through the link below:
