James Richards

Half_Life
Data 1

With Half_Life, James Richards (born in 1983 in Wales, based in Berlin) presents a newly produced two-part film installation at the lower exhibition at Kunstnernes Hus.

About the exhibition

The installation continues the core elements of the artist's works by establishing a connection between two spaces: a film and sound program in the cinema, exploring the boundaries of the cinematic format, and an installation in the lower exhibition hall featuring theatrical props, oversized film posters, sculptures, and objects. A central component is an experimental film and music performance in collaboration with sound artists, leaving ghostly traces in the installation.

The exhibition is a collaboration with Den Norske Opera.
