Sharon Hayes – 'Ricerche: three' (2013) Online Screening
11 May 2020 until 31 May 2020
This month, we are pleased to announce the next of our online artists’ screenings, a film by Sharon Hayes whose project we were due to present during this year’s Glasgow International, now postponed to 2021. The first in a suite of works, ‘Ricerche: three’ (2013), is now available for viewing at thecommonguild.org.uk from today until 31 May.
‘Ricerche: three’, first exhibited in the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013, is part of a long-term and currently ongoing investigative film series observing attitudes around sex, relationships, gender and nationhood in contemporary American society. The word ‘ricerche’ – Italian for research – is borrowed, along with Hayes’ frank methodological enquiry, from Pier Paolo Pasolini’s 1964 film ‘Comizi d’amore’, a documentary investigation into the sexual attitudes of Italians during the 1960s.
Buzzing with dialogue, chatter and the joy of animated discourse ‘Ricerche: three’ offers liveness and interaction. Real physical embraces, gesticulations of emotion, expressions of disagreement, laughter and the pleasure of talk, even during the film’s silences. Whilst we are unable to experience crowds and participate in the immediacy of debate, Hayes’ film is an invitation to gather together, to listen and to exchange values.
