This comprised the second instalment of a two-part solo show by The Otolith Group (the first held at Gasworks), a series of events, including a seminar with the artists and discussions with filmmaker Eyal Sivan and Bidoun magazine, and a new monograph designed by Will Holder.
The show was the premiere of Otolith III, a single screen projection that replayed Satyajit Ray’s unrealised science fiction film The Alien as a series of competing past potential futures. It was the first exhibition at The Showroom’s new site in the Church Street area.
The Otolith Group received a nomination for the Turner Prize 2010 for their A Long Time Between Suns project and the respective exhibitions at Gasworks and The Showroom.
A Long Time Between Suns is a two-part project organised in collaboration with Gasworks, London.
