> DESCRIPTION

The Struggle is a dynamic new series of films exploring the impact of politicised familial interactions on the formation of subjectivity in the individual – starting with Part 1 The Straggle: a study focusing on individuals whose parents were left-wing activists, and the socialist magician Ian Saville.

The evolution of the subject will be played out during the artist’s residency with Beaconsfield, supporting the commission and tour of this new work. Garfield will be available for discussion each Friday during the exhibition as she works on site, opening a public window onto the series in progress.

The debate opens in an earlier film Here There Then Now, 2009, also exhibited, in which Rachel Garfield and acclaimed experimental film maker Stephen Dwoskin engage in a conversation about the role of the artist in their generation.

Friday 25 May at 6.30pm: Artists talk with Magic by Ian Saville
