Coming back to Wide Open School (programme of lectures & workshops running @ the Hayward Gallery till July 12), yesterday’s lecture by Jane & Louise Wilson was really fascinating. The artists duo talked to writer/critic Brian Dillon about the theme of ruin and which role does it play in their work. In case you’re not familiar with their work, take a look at this short movie, where they describe their latest projects: Atomgrad (2010), series of photographs shot in Pripyat, an abandoned, demolished town just outside of Chernobyl and a short film Face Scripting (2011), which was inspired by the assassination of Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh.
