That Monster: An Allegory
A screening at The Institute of Contemporary Arts in London
April 10, 2019
"In a body of video work produced over the past decade, Kolbowski has explored
strategies of "re-animating" the past to pose questions about politics in the present.
In That Monster: An Allegory (2018), she returns to the genre of silent film and
Mary Shelley's fictional tale of man-made monstrosity, prompting such questions as:
how are political and psychic subjects formed now? What does art offer by way of
intervening in the mass politics and mass media of today? What forms of resistance
are possible? That Monster: An Allegory features re-edited images and sequences
from the classic horror film The Bride of Frankenstein (Dir. James Whale, 1935), and
in this screening, the looped video will play once with sound, and once in silence.
A conversation with the artist, academic Mignon Nixon and curator Kari Rittenbach
accompanies this screening with an opportunity for audience questions."
