Pearl Lam Galleries is also delighted to be participating for the first time in the Film sector of Art Basel in Hong Kong with a film by Turkish artist Inci Eviner (b. 1956). Eviner’s three-minute short film Nursing Modern Fall (2012) will be shown on 26 March at agnès b. CINEMA as part of Art Basel in Hong Kong’s ‘Human’s Theater’ (Part 2), a series that explores onstage-backstage relationships. Eviner’s work forms a tension between the space and performing bodies, dealing with issues of identity; in particular female identity through social, cultural, historical or political perspectives.
