    Film installation with three HD videos (30 min with sound) and photographic works.   Nestled in the remote town of Cascia, within the mountains of southern Umbrian, lies the Santuario di Santa Rita de Cascia - the resting place of Saint Rita (1381-14
    57), canonised as the Saint of Impossible Causes.   The film Ex-voto (2018) examines the legacy of Santa Rita through the daily activities of the nuns currently resident at the convent in Cascia. It also draws on the twentieth century French conceptual artist Yves Klein's connection to the saint. Klein was deeply fascinated by Santa Rita and left several ex-voto's at the convent. The resulting film explores expressions of faith in material and visual culture whilst offering a meditation on the nature of spirituality itself.   Santa Rita has a global following and Born Schwartz is the first film-maker to have been granted access to the cloistered areas of the convent. Over the course of two years, hosted by the Mahler & LeWitt Studios residency program in nearby Spoleto, she became acquainted with the nuns, making intimate interviews and recording their lives on film.   The film incorporates other locations near Spoleto which have spiritual connotations, including Tomaso Buzzi's folly complex in Montegabbione, 'La Scarzuola', and a submerged church used by Russian film-maker Andrei Tarkovsky in his film 'Nostalghia'.   Julie Born Schwartz lives and works in Copenhagen. She studied at Goldsmiths and the Royal Academy Schools in London. She has exhibited and had screenings across Europe. Recent exhibitions and screenings include:Vermilion Sands, Copenhagen; Code Art Fair 2017, Copenhagen; Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt; Royal Academy of Arts, London; The Theatre Museum at the Court Theatre, Copenhagen; Theatre Museum, Düsseldorf; Socle du Monde Biennale 2017, Herning; Museum of Religious Art, Lemvig; Union Pacific Gallery, London; Photographic Center, Copenhagen; The Sunday Painter, London. For a full list and information about her films please visit her website: http://www.juliebornschwartz.com/.   The exhibition is supported and made possible by the Danish Arts Foundation and Mahler & LeWitt Studios residency program.

    Screen Shots: Desire and Automated Image is a group exhibition and symposium curated by Associate Professor at Aarhus University, Magdalena Tyzlik-Carver. Screen Shots investigates the contemporary image culture: It has never been easier to snap a picture
    , but the click of the camera is often followed by complex digital post-processing. The images are edited in Photoshop or apps, and uploaded to networks like Facebook and Instagram, where algorithms, and not humans, handle our images. The exhibiting artist are: Zach Blas (UK/USA), Petra Cortright (USA), Sebastian Lütgert a.k.a. Robert Luxemburg (D), Winnie Soon (HK/DK), Sarah Shorr (USA/DK), Michael Mandiberg (USA), Anna Ridler (UK) and Kristoffer Ørum (DK).Photo: Zach Blas, im here to learn so :))))), 2017

    Picnicking is far from a simple affair in eastern India. In a land where the fleeting months of December to February offer the only time to ‘enjoy’ the otherwise unbearable tropical sun, picnicking is a winter pastime that’s taken very, very seriously. B
    uses and cooks are hired as groups of families, friends, neighbors and colleagues travel far to claim the perfect picnic spot, preferably around the innumerable rivers traversing the landscape, from the Ganges downstream to the Rupnarayan, Icchamati and myriad other tidal rivers close to the Sunderbans. Vats of freshly slaughtered chicken, sacks of vegetable and an arsenal of pots, pans and gas cylinders are lugged along, taking cooking en plein air to a whole new level. Yet the most curious detail is, by and far, the extravagant loudspeakers that come with nearly every picnic group. Transported in their own hand drawn carts or mini-vans, separate generators are also brought along to pump up the electricity in the great outdoors. Songs from recent Bengali and Hindi blockbusters blare high above permissible decibels. Drunk on whiskey and rum, men of all ages brawl, dance their hearts out or pass out, as wives, girlfriends and children watch. PIK-NIK by Arko Datto, with work done between 2013 and 2015, takes a look at these yearly picnics as a phenomenon, their cultural meaning, and the environmental imprint that is left on the nature after each event.Read more about Arko Datto: http://www.arkodatto.com.
