The Otolith Group

SAVAC is proud to co-present films by The Otolith Group

By activating media archives, histories of the future, and legacies of non-alignment and tricontinentalism, The Otolith Group’s artistic projects trace the end of utopian ideals. We present the first two installments of their acclaimed, in-progress video trilogy in conjunction with the exhibition ‘Universal Code’ at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery. Otolith (2003) concerns a 22nd-century descendant of artist Anjalika Sagar based on a space station after the human race has been forced to leave Earth’s gravitational field. Otolith II (2007), also set in the future, explores two ideas of the “city of tomorrow”: Le Corbusier’s Chandigarh of 1963 and the Mumbai of today.

 


The Otolith Group was founded in 2000 by UK-based artists Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshun. Their work has been included in group exhibitions such as the Tate Triennial, London (2006), and at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2006), and in a solo show at Gasworks and The Showroom, London (2009).
