In the framework of her solo exhibition at Lumiar Cité, Judith Barry talks with the researcher and philosopher Giovanbattista Tusa, under moderation of curator Jürgen Bock.
All the light that’s our to see is an elegiac meditation on our changing viewing habits and how we are being transformed by the evolving forms of media surrounding us. Visually, this project is a palimpsest of images presented across two screens that cinematically interrogates viewing spaces – from the medieval period to present-day environments. The physical array of the cinematic surround, and its location-specific installation, allows the viewer to slip between the range of historical moments and question the changing social situations they have encouraged, alongside the relationships among lost media histories, and ever-evolving audience behaviours.
Judith Barry lives and works in New York. She has exhibited internationally and participated in numerous exhibitions, including the Berlin Biennale, CAFA Triennial, Carnegie International, Documenta, Nagoya Biennale, São Paulo Biennale, Sharjah Biennial, Sydney Biennale, Venice Biennale(s) of Art and Architecture, and the Whitney Biennale. A survey of her work travelled across Europe and was shown at the Berardo Museum, Lisbon, in 2010. Public Fantasy (1991), a collection of Barry’s essays, was published by the ICA in London. Other publications include Projections: mise en abyme (1997), The Study for the Mirror and Garden (2003) and Judith Barry: body without limits (2009). Her awards include the Kiesler Prize for Architecture and the Arts (2000,) and Best Pavilion and Audience Award at the 8th Cairo Biennale (2001). Currently, she is Director and Professor of the MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology Cambridge, MA.
Giovanbattista Tusa is a philosopher and media researcher based in Lisbon, where he is currently a Researcher in Philosophy and Ecology at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa. He is the author, with Alain Badiou, of The End (Polity Press, 2019). His current multidisciplinary research examines radical politics, art, cinema, eco-criticism, ontological realism and animal studies.
