CHISENHALEHz presents "Merging the Layers"
"Merging the Layers is an evening of audio and moving image works which explore the perceived hierarchies of art forms, devised by ChisenhaleHz in response to Mandy El-Sayegh’s new commission. Programmed in association with First Thursdays, when galleries across east London stay open until 9pm on the first Thursday of each month.
Films include: Hito Steyerl Lovely Andrea (2007); Soda Jerk The Was (2016) and Mahdi Fleifel 20 Handshakes for freedom (2014). The programme also includes a performative reading by Polina Paniak, member of ChisenhaleHz. To see the full programme, click here.
ChisenhaleHz is a collective of young people who meet regularly at Chisenhale Gallery. Using ideas and themes raised through the gallery’s 2019 Commissions Programme, the group will present a series of public events throughout the year. Following the first meeting, the group collectively decided on the name ChisenhaleHz, which reflects the multiple frequencies and voices brought together in the group.
ChisenhaleHz are: Francis Carmody, Dita Hashi, Lena Lewis King, Jude O’Shaughnessy, Polina Paniak, Bianca Rawlinson, Leda Sadotti and Ramune Valanciute."
