Two Years at Sea, directed by Ben Rivers


In collaboration with the British Council, UCCA presents a series of video art pieces by British artists, ranging from classical experimental films to new works by young artists. The screenings be introduced by Gil Leung, head of programme at LUX. LUX is an international arts agency that supports and promotes video artists. The screening program is curated by William Fowler (British Film Institute), Gil Leung (LUX), and Xie Meng (UCCA).



GAZWRX: The Films of Jeff Keen
Jeff Keen's unique and imaginative filmmaking has outlived the various scenes in which it thrived, such as 1960s counter-culture and punk. This series of short films from the 1960s to the 1990s reveals the astonishingly tireless talent of a filmmaker not afraid to grapple with sex and war, or to experiment with visceral soundtracks and brutal animation techniques.


Two Years at Sea, directed by Ben Rivers
Using old 16mm cameras, artist Ben Rivers creates works from stories of real people, often those who have disconnected from the normal world and withdrawn to the wilderness. Two Years at Sea won the FIPRESCI Award at the Venice Film Festival 2011 and the top prize at CPH:DOX 2011.


"New Materials, New British Artists'Video"
This series of four works by Elizabeth Price, Ed Atkins, Mark Leckey, and Laure Prouvost represents a new sensual engagement with HD, as well as convergent technological histories in British artists'video works.
