Event overview

SLOW DANS is the acclaimed film trilogy by Turner Prize-winning video artist Elizabeth Price – made available to view for free for the first time exclusively online for two weeks – and featuring FVU commission FELT TIP.

Fusing the crispness of pop with the complexity of weaving, Price’s dazzling trilogy delves deep into social and cultural histories, from the decline of the coal industry to the sexual politics of the office, narrating visions of past, present and future. In KOHL, synthetic voices track the movement of an inky fluid as it travels along the flooded tunnels of abandoned coal mines and seeps into underground car parks. FELT TIP features neckties from the 1970s and 80s and links their motifs to emerging information networks and subversive fashion. The final work in the trilogy, THE TEACHERS is a futuristic ghost story that imagines an epidemic of muteness that has spread through the professional classes.
