  • Preview Screening: Declan Clarke, The Most Cruel of All Goddesses and artist’s talk

    Preview Screening: Declan Clarke, The Most Cruel of All Goddesses and artist’s talk

    FREE ADMISSION: Digital Performance Lab- University of Salford, MediaCityUK

    The Most Cruel of All Goddesses has been co-commissioned by HOME and the University of Salford as part of The heart is deceitful above all things, the opening exhibition at the new HOME. The exhibition will explore the theme of ‘Transactions of Desire’: What is passion, what is ambition and what motivates our desires and manipulates our relationships? The exhibition was inspired by Ödön von Horváth’s classic play Kasimir and Karoline which has been adapted by dramatist Simon Stephens into The Funfair.  It will premiere at HOME on
    Thursday 14 May.

    After the exhibition The Most Cruel of All Goddesses will enter the University of Salford Art Collection.

    Following this preview screening of The Most Cruel of All Goddesses artist Declan Clarke will talk about the film and discuss his art practice.


    The Most Cruel of All Goddesses
    Artist/director: Declan Clarke
    Original Media: 16mm film
     
    A covert agent is following a line of investigation that seems to lead him back to the life of Friedrich Engels. The trail leads him to through locations particular to Engels: Manchester, Salford, London and to Wuppertal, his hometown. The agent is led to the Oktoberfest and his ultimate fate. The film, shot on 16mm, unites Clarke’s relationship with the loss of history and the haunt of grand narratives with the impending doom and critique of playwright Horváth. Clarke’s signature style of a lingering camera, long takes and sole narrator is expanded upon by use of sound and exploiting a fictional narrative. The film reimagines Kasimir and Karoline’s story as a contemporary allegory for the failure of the promises of previous centuries
