Press Release

The exhibition is set around Tamara Henderson’s most recent film Seasons End: Out of Body (2018). Through a hypnotic succession of landscapes, atmospheres, voices, characters and textures that appear and disappear, the film oscillates between the common and the extraordinary, to approach something completely intuitive inside us, and unearth it. Alongside the 16mm film, the exhibition includes a selection of textiles belonging to the Seasons Endseries in which, subconsciously and associatively, Henderson assembles the rhythm of the seasons, the observation of atmospheric phenomena or ritual processes through their material qualities.

Out of Body aims to recreate a mood or state of mind that floats between sleep and wakefulness. As a whole, the exhibition conveys a dreamlike and suggestive atmosphere in which, through a profoundly personal and poetic film narrative, memory and daily life are intertwined. In this suspended space, Henderson speculates on other ways of channeling consciousness and subjectivity; at the same time, it registers dynamics that float between hypnosis, sleep and altered states of consciousness.
