no–body’s room Online Video Art Screening

The Room Projects, Paris. 8th - 10th January 2021. Created and Curated by The Room Projects in collaboration with LUX 

no — body’s room investigates, researches, and brings together video artworks that reflect on the idea of the “cannibal image”. The image is seen as a “living body” that nourishes itself with other images. The screening will show works that establish a dialogue between the representation of the human body and the moving images, following three sub-categories: Skin, Biting and Chewing, Viscera. Each category will screen works of contemporary artists alongside three “guest” archive video artworks of LUX that will be announced one day before the screening.

Back home, Kypselian Salon - Snehta, Athens

29th Dec 2020 - 10th January 2021. Online exhibition 

Given the social constrains we are all facing, Snehta decided to develop a virtual version of its annual Salon exhibition to make it accessible to every single one of you. While it was difficult to showcase new artworks in the exhibition, the team selected works from the depot to present you a well curated experience. The exhibition takes place literally in a Kypselian Salon, that being Ag.Zonis’ apartment where some of the participating artists and former residents have lived and stayed there during their residency at Snehta. 

Artists Irini Bachlitzanaki, John Bicknell, Amalia Charikiopoulou, Aristea Charoniti, Florent Frizet, Catriona Gallagher, Ioanna Gouma, Steven Harvey, Elsa Henderson, Eva Isleifsdottir, Ismene King, Vasiliki Koukou, Dimitra Kousteridou, Vasiliki Lefkaditi, Eleanor Lines, Theodora Malamou, Nikos Mantzios, Tommaso Mauriello, Zoi Moutsokou, Pantelis Pantelopoulos, Sofia Papapolyzou, Iris Plaitakis, Lucas Recchione, Joseph Stokes, Augustus Veinoglou, Su Wang, Apostolos Zerdevas, Stathis-Alexandros Zoulias

Laterale Film Festival - World Premiere of They met under a ceiling of sky

Laterale Film Festival, September 28-29-30th 2020 Cinema San Nicola, Cosenza, Italy. 

‘Have you ever heard the wind blowing through some uninhabited houses? It changes the perspective and they seem not so empty anymore; something has left a trace, but you have arrived just a moment too late. And yet, who can say that what we believe to be lost is something apart from ourselves? This is the meaning of a visitation to a lonely house by a woman. The knowledge of that trace changes, little by little, her way of living; it is a slight but decisive perceptible slipping. Along with her, we go after a ghost who lives in a written page. This recollection switches from the paper to her thought. They will be able to meet, the woman and her followed spirit, where the wind has disappeared, under a ceiling of sky.’ - Laterale Film Festival

This event will take place on Weds 30th September, 10am-11am. Please email to register your interest. On registering, you will also receive access to an exclusive showcase of Catriona’s films.

ENTWINED Residency - VARC, Northumberland July 2020 - April 2021


Over the ten months in Northumberland, I will be researching perceived categorisations of the natural, manmade and wildness. I will be looking at systems of knowledge, control and management of nature locally, identifying such traces in the landscape alongside more collaborative practices and rituals performed on the land. Working with local people will be key and I’m hoping to develop collaborations with performers to include local voices, dialects and bodies. Mapping such patterns, whether physical or informational, will constitute my beginnings in drawing and writing, which I anticipate will progress into moving image over the course of the residency. I plan to begin with an open ended approach to the Ecology of Place and see what strikes me as pertinent and holds my interest when immersed in the locality.

Russian Premiere of Perdikaki - New Holland Island International Debut Film Festival

 14-28 August 2020 Online edition 

“A poetic journey through the concrete cityscape of Athens in search of a mystery that may not exist, though the journey is no less real for it. Catriona Gallagher has a rare attentiveness to the environment: few directors, even those working in the travelogue essay genre, would be able to build an entire film around the search for an urban weed which everyone has seen but no one knows the name of. Here, poems, as Akhmatova wrote, grow shamelessly in trash.” - NHIFF
