OFFICIAL SELECTION
Queen


Country: United Kingdom
Year: 2019
Duration: 13'
Direction: Kathryn Elkin

Sinopsis

In "Queen", bodily labour, performance, leisure and domestic work are drawn into comparison via an irreverent musical memoir. A bowling alley, a gallery, a studio, a pregnancy and a pop song. Kathryn Elkin tackles, with her characteristic sense of humour, issues around labour, creation, biography, being an artist and the transforming pregnant body. The film was conceived and shot during the artist’s pregnancy and first months of parenthood.



Bio

Kathryn Elkin (Belfast, 1983) is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art and Goldsmiths College and former LUX Associate Artist. Elkin's performance and video works reflect on shared cultural memory (as produced by popular music, television and cinema) and the melding of this information to biography. She is interested in gender role play, interviews, humour and improvisation. She has shown work throughout the UK, including ICA, Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Collective Gallery, Transmission, LUX and CCA Glasgow. She has screened works at London Film Festival, Union Docs, Courtisane and Visions du Réel. She completed a solo exhibition at LUX, London in February 2019.
