KILLING DETAIL: A JOURNEY THROUGH BARRY FLANAGAN’S WORK

Director: CARINE ASSCHER

FRANCE • 1986 • COLOUR • 16MM • 14 MIN


TO COMPLEMENT BOTH THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED BARRY FLANAGAN RETROSPECTIVE AT IMMA AND THE MONTH-LONG EXHIBITION ALONG O’CONNELL STREET OF THE SCULPTOR’S LARGE-SCALE PIECES, THE IFI IS PLEASED TO SCREEN CARINE ASSCHER’S SHORT FILM ABOUT HIS WORK.
Flanagan often produces lithe, supple forms exuding all the majesty of the marble and bronze he uses. Carine Asscher employs intertwining snails (brown garden snails, livelier than their Burgundy cousins) to capture the movement reminiscent of Flanagan’s work in this remarkable interpretation. Barry Flanagan’s infamous bronze hares have been exhibited in many outdoor spaces, most notably on Park Avenue in New York and at Grant Park in Chicago. He has exhibited recently at Liverpool’s Tate Gallery, the Kunsthalle Recklinghausen, Germany, and the MusÈe d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain, Nice.

The screening will be followed by a talk with the director and the sculptor, hosted by Bruce Arnold. Flanagan’s sculpture ‘Bird Bath’ will be exhibited in the IFI atrium space throughout June.
