James Richards’ artist talk will include a compilation video made specifically for this single occasion and shown ‘for one night only.’ Titled, Some Rushes, it re-appropriates a selection of his earlier works, as well as work from other artists with whom he has had a continued dialogue with.

In that spirit, one of Richards’ long-time conversation partners, artist Martin Gustavsson, who is a senior lecturer in the Art department at Konstfack, will lead a question and answer session, weaving in his own relationship to Richards’ work.

James Richards (born Cardiff 1983) is an artist living and working in Berlin, Germany. Through archival research, found footage and extensive collaboration, his video, sound and curatorial projects examine themes of obsession, desire and technology.
