Curated by Granny Ludski

Edition 9 of ‘At Home with the Ludskis’ Avant-Garde, plastic art, installation, live music, popcorn, intervention, painting, Total art, Post-contemporary, exhibition, screening, live performance happening!… curated by Granny Ludski.
Bringing together Artists from all over the world, at all career stages and levels of fame and from as many creative fields as possible to create Avant Garde Art for the Cinema!

‘At Home with the Ludskis’ breaks away from exhibition tradition to explore an art gallery / cinema hybrid that aims to at a communal experience of Art that is thought-provoking, visually stimulating and emotionally involving. The pedestrian and mundane is pushed aside to passionately embrace the Post-Contemporary.

‘Your event looks lovely!’ Annie Sprinkle
‘A truly alternative happening at this Dalston cinema space.’ Time Out

Doug Aitken
Widely known for his innovative fine art installations, Doug Aitken is at the frontier of 21st century communication. Utilizing a wide array of media and artistic approaches, Aitken’s eye leads us into a world where time, space, and memory are fluid concepts.
Ryoji Ikeda
Japan’s leading electronic composer and visual artist Ryoji Ikeda focuses on the essential characteristics of sound itself and that of visuals as light by means of both mathematical precision and mathematical aesthetics. Ikeda has gained a reputation as one of the few international artists working convincingly across both visual and sonic media. He elaborately orchestrates sound, visuals, materials, physical phenomena and mathematical notions into immersive live performances and installations.
Cory Arcangel
is a computer artist whose work is concerned with technology’s relationship to culture and the creative process. He is a founding member of BEIGE, a group of computer programmers and enthusiasts who recycle obsolete computers and video game systems to make art and music, and a member of RSG (Radical Software Group).
William Wegman
By the early 70s, Wegman’s work was being exhibited in museums and galleries internationally. In addition to solo shows with Sonnabend Gallery in Paris and New York, Situation Gallery in London and Konrad Fisher Gallery in Dusseldorf , his work was included in such seminal exhibitions as “When Attitudes Become Form,” and “Documenta V” and regularly featured in Interfunktionen, Artforum and Avalanche.
Pipilotti Rist
As an Artist she’s danced topless to the Beatles, made a chandelier from pants and filmed inside the human body.
Yoko Ono (オノ・ヨーコ )
artist and peace activist, known for her work in avant-garde art, music and filmmaking and for her marriage to John Lennon (1969–1980). Ono brought feminism to the forefront in her music. Lennon called her “the most famous unknown artist in the world.
Stefan Holderlein
is a video and installation artist based in Germany who collects objects, people, sounds and themes. For Hoderlein, the future means loss of things past, and this is part of his motivation for saving items from his life.http://www.warhol.org/edu_additional.aspx?id=7030
Moreno Solinas
has worked as a performer with Bonachela Dance Company (The Land of Yes and The Land of No, apprentice), DV8 Physical Theatre (restaging of To Be Straight With You), Stan Won’t Dance (creation and touring of Babel) and Earthfall (creation and touring of The Factory).Since 2007 he has created dance works in collaboration with Igor Urzelai. Moreno and Igor are amongst the founding members of BLOOM! Dance Collective,
Loulou Reloulou
performer /designer aka Lisiane Brunet is from Paris, lives in London and makes the most incredible garments. They are hard to describe but the idea is a sort of loose garment with different sleeves and neck holes incorporated. You are meant to share them with one or several people.
Kei Ishikawa
Butoh dancer…. crazy about classical ballet from when she was 4 years old until she met Daisuke Yoshimoto, Butoh master, when she was 21. She has performed in Japan and overseas as a solo and part of TENKU YORAN dance company.
Joelle Taylor
began performing as a solo poet after her band lost interest in themselves half way through a song. Never one to be described as observant, Joelle continued speaking over a non-existent backing track – and her spoken word career was born. She was 17 at the time, and by the end of the gig had procured an anarchic manager who quickly set her up to support the Pogues on tour.
Eleanor Clare & Kam Wan
Performer Singer Film-maker: ‘the Baroque never offers us perfection or fulfilment, or the static calm of being, only the unrest of change and the tension of transience.’ Heinrich Wolffiln
http://www.eleanorclare.com/
Meg Mosley
Performer film-maker bringing her A-game to a fierce launch of her #partofme lip-sync music video. Megastar’s reality tv show #mylife, is currently showing at Jerwood Visual Arts Project Space.www.megmosley.co.uk
Aymeric Ayral
Film-maker based in France. 2013 MASTER 2 Ecole supérieure d’AudioVisuel – Toulouse
Shali Liu

Artist, Film-maker, Writer & Curator.
https://houseofodwyer.wordpress.com/
Emie Elg
Swedish Artist & Film-maker
Makikio Watanabe
is an Art Event Creator based in Tokyo and London.
Sue Frumin
Performer Writer Film-maker based in London.

‘Brilliant! Such an incredible use of the cinema! Amazing atmosphere, amazing happenings – loved seeing the Rio filled with wildness.’ Charlie Phillips, Sheffield Doc Fest
Is it impossible, Curator Granny Ludski asked herself, to bring together artists working in many different disciplines, into one place, for one moment, to produce a meta-happening? A true cross/multi disciplinary approach to Art and exhibition making is totally absent from the British Art scene. Granny Ludski smashes boundaries and avoids the herd to bring work as varied and complex as the audience and the world itself.
‘An intriguing event that smashes pigeonholes with risky ideas. If there’s no future for that, there’s no future for anything.’ Alex Chappel
‘The saturated landscape of art, installations, performance and even fashion in the East London makes it easy to be dismissive, yet there’s something about the Ludskis that suggests it should be taken a little more seriously than the rest. The avant-garde late night exhibition combines a number of mediums – from screenings to live music – and celebrates the rich history of the Dalston Rio’s roots in Modernism. It might just be something people will be talking about for a while…’ Thrill City London

Notes to Editors
History >>> the Ludskis return to the Beautiful Art Deco, Rio Cinema, in the very beating heart of the London Scene, to produce a unique exhibition/screening/happening in their ongoing tribute to Clara Ludski, a Russian immigrant, who in 1909 founded the KINGSLAND PALACE, the first electric picture house on the site on which the Rio Cinema now stands.
Like traditional hallowed places of worship and communion they impart to us a message about how we once lived and how we might live. This pagan temple is a shrine to our collective Dreams, Fears, Loves, Madness and codes of Honour.
Bored and drained by bogus exhibitions and the banal moving image screenings of cinema and gallery, Granny Ludski wanted something more vital, with quality, depth and imagination. We found ourselves in direct conflict with the academic style and scholastic didacticism of Art Academy, Gallery, Museum and Biennale. This led to the creation of ‘At Home with the Ludskis’ and the production of a late night exhibition/screening/happening with as wide a range of artists from different fields, providing, eerie installation, seductive performance, startling moving image, surreal musicianship. All the Art Forms that Cinema relies on will Be There!
