IMPAKT TV Episode #2: Wednesday 21:00
With Hannah Toticki and Patrick Bosse
Location: IMPAKT TV from Koepelzaal
For this IMPAKT TV episode we interview Danish artist Hannah Toticki about her work and perspective on the exhibition Modern Love (or Love in the Age of Cold Intimacies). Hannah Toticki’s works presented in the exhibition, all newly commissioned, are garments, accessories and furniture which all point to the relationship between technology and body. You can experience the exhibition Modern Love at the IMPAKT [Centre for Media Culture] and the Centraal Museum from 3 November 2021 to 6 February 2022.
After the conversation with Hannah Toticki we will screen the filmwork Anatomy (2013) by Patrick Bosse. This short film is a starkly pure evocation of the senses. In a white room we see the aging bodies of actors Gilles Pelletier and Françoise Graton. They testify to a love that has triumphed over time and engage in a captivating dialogue of desire, defying inertia, old age and death. The screening is followed by a conversation with the artist.
This episode is hosted by Marijn Bril.
