Two films from Serbian-born, Netherlands-based artist Katarina Zdjelar are set to be screened at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art as part of the latest Film Club on Thursday 12th January, with a discussion of her wider practice also set to take place.
With films exploring language and sound in relation to cultural contexts, the videos explore the role of voice and music in establishing national identities. The two on show are 2009’s The Perfect Sounds and 2012’s My Lifetime (Malaika). The former is a unique look at an individual attending an English language accent removal class, and the latter a document of a rehearsal of the Ghanaian National Symphony Orchestra. With both set to prove to be fascinating watches.
