Summary:
Tonight the World' is Jarman Award-winning artist Daria Martin's new commission for Barbican Art Gallery. Martin stages a series of encounters in The Curve drawing from the dreams of artist Susi Stiassni, Martin's grandmother, who fled the Holocaust. Stiassni's extensive dream diaries become the point of departure and return, as Martin reconceptualises The Curve as a space where memory, time and place clash and blend. Martin created two films 'Refuge' and 'Tonight the World' for this installation, captured in this full-colour hardback publication. The book also features an interview with exhibition curator, Florence Ostende and essay by writer and art critic Dr Maria Walsh. Exhibition: Barbican Art Gallery, London, UK (31.01.-07.04.2019).
