For 30 days this summer, Doug Aitken’s project Station to Station: A 30 Day Happening, takes over the Barbican Centre with more than 100 free events over 30 days, with special ticketed events every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
This ‘living exhibition’, brings together a fusion of leading international and UK-based artists from the world of contemporary art, music, dance, graphic design and film in a jam-packed programme.
For Station-to-Station, Forsyth and Pollard make a new work inspired by John Milton’s Paradise Lost, using the architecture and atmosphere of the Barbican. Forsyth and Pollard can be seen working on the film sporadically and film rushes will be randomly screened in the gallery during the latter half of Station to Station. The finished piece will premiere in the Gallery on the last day of the project with an opportunity to hear Forsyth and Pollard talk about their latest creation.
The film features actor Sean Harris as Satan and a score by Warren Ellis (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds).
