Curator: Root Canal
In the context of Every Loft Needs a Sink, curator of the exhibition, Root Canal, invited artist Jacob Dwyer, one of the artists in the show, to organise a screening program. Three of his video works were shown, among which his most recent Drawings of Suns. The screening was followed by a talk and a Q&A with the artist and curator.
Drawings of Suns documents an innocuous family outing to a defunct radio station in the middle of the Netherlands (Radio Kootwijk). As the day spills out into the surrounding sand dunes a voice behind the lens expounds on a previous experience held three years earlier in the same location. Through a conscious attempt to merge the two, we witness a desire for resolve, whilst bubbling underneath, the complex dynamics of the artists family play out.
