Join us for the UK premiere of Deborah-Joyce Holman’s Spill I-III (2022), an experimental video work which engages with the politics of representation and explores queerness through nature.

Taking Sicily’s volcano Etna as a starting point, the three-channel film by Deborah-Joyce Holman, Spill I-III, draws on Édouard Glissant’s notion of “tremblement” in a visual poem on the motif of the eruption.

Spill I-III takes on the strategies of asemic writing, a wordless, open form of writing that conveys no specific semantic content and can function beyond a purely linguistic sense, which is underlined by the accompanying score composed by Yantan Ministry. The moving image work ruminates on queer desire, the politics of image production and the voice.

Commissioned by Istituto Svizzero in co-production with Confort Moderne Poitiers, Nottingham Contemporary and Shedhalle Zurich.


3 – 5.30pm: Screening of Spill I-III in The Space (the film installation will be played on a loop)

6 – 7pm: In-conversation between Deborah-Joyce Holman, and Canan Batur, our Curator of Live Programmes
