Ben Whishaw (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer) delivers a touching and nuanced performance in this affecting and intimate debut feature from writer director Hong Khaou, about finding the aspects of life which bring us together. Set in contemporary London, a Cambodian-Chinese mother is mourning the untimely death of her son when her world is suddenly disrupted by the presence of a stranger. Without a common language, the two have difficulties in trying to communicate. But through a translator they slowly piece together memories of a man they both loved and realize that while they may not share a language, they are connected in their grief. The film opened at last year’s Sundance Film Festival in January 2014.
Inspired by its Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection, Pera Museum presents a contemporary video installation titled For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones at the gallery that hosts the Collection. The installation by the artist Nicola Lorini takes its starting point from recent events, in particular the calculation of the hypothetical mass of the Internet and the weight lost by the model of the kilogram and its consequent redefinition, and traces a non-linear voyage through the Collection.
Nam June Paik was video art’s pioneer (1932 –2006). It is interesting that while Warhol and Nameth were experimenting with psychedelic happenings that combined rock, film and performance, the video art pioneers Nam June Paik, Stephen Beck, Eric Siegel and Steina Vasulka were researching in a similar direction.
