The Carpenter Center in collaboration with Harvard Art Museums presents a screening of Renée Green’s new film ED/HF (2017, 33 minutes), followed by a conversation with Mason Leaver-Yap, writer and Associate Curator at KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin. This screening is the third public program of Green’s Pacing, part the CCVA initiative Institution (Building), a biennial invitation to artists to consider the institutional behaviors and practices of the Carpenter Center and Harvard University.

Commissioned by the Walker Art Center and conceived as a “film as a conversation,” Green’s ED/HF is a cinematic meditation on lived experience, writing, film and ongoing becomings. On its surface, ED/HF could be described as a double portrait of Green and artist and filmmaker Harun Farocki. But ED/HF’s primary focus is guided less by a binary comparison of these two personas, and more by the pair’s personal experiences of migration and the legacies of displacement that have affected both the artists and their work.

A palimpsestic work, Green’s ED/HF touches on the many thresholds opened while thinking about an artist’s life and work. Questions of language, history, and image reproduction technologies are rendered into a touching threnody, a mournful celebration of the power of art, film and poetry.

Read Leaver-Yap’s essay on ED/HF on the Walker Art Center’s website.

Renée Green is an artist, writer, and filmmaker known for her highly layered and formally complex multimedia installations in which ideas, perception, and experience are examined from myriad perspectives. Via films, essays and writings, installations, digital media, architecture, sound-related works, film series and events her work engages with investigations into circuits of relation and exchange over time, the gaps and shifts in what survives in public and private memories as well as what has been imagined and invented.

Mason Leaver-Yap works with artists to produce texts, exhibitions, and events. Recent work with Evan Ifekoya, Artists’ Campaign to Repeal the Eighth Amendment, Jamie Crewe, Beatrice Gibson, Leslie Thornton, Lucy McKenzie and Atelier EB, Shahryar Nashat, Moyra Davey, Pat Hearn, Sharon Hayes, Charlotte Prodger, James Richards, Beatrice Gibson with CAConrad and Eileen Myles, Marwa Arsanios, Yto Barrada, and Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz. They are based in Glasgow and Berlin.
