Speak: Tania Bruguera, Douglas Gordon, Laure Prouvost and Cally Spooner

Speak Serpentine Sackler

In dialogue with the Serpentine Gallery survey show of John Latham, Speak at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery brings together contemporary artists – Tania Bruguera, Douglas Gordon, Laure Prouvost and Cally Spooner – whose diverse practices expand John Latham’s ideas.

This show proposes Latham as an ‘open toolbox’ for artists, revealing how his concepts of time, events, language, knowledge and society resonate today.

Tania Bruguera (b.1968 Havana, Cuba) is an installation and performance artist whose works often expose the social effects of the power of political force; she lives and works in Havana, New York and Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Douglas Gordon (b.1966 Glasgow, Scotland) lives and works in Berlin. He works with video, installation and text, using found and original material, to investigate memory and the passage of time.

Laure Prouvost (b.1978, Croix, France) lives and works between Arialmorla and Moulamnbeck in Belguim. Her practice encompasses video, sound, objects and installation.

Cally Spooner (b.1983, Ascot, UK) is a writer and artist based in Athens and London. Her practice includes film, audio, drawing and live events, fiction, plays and essays.
