Film screening: When I get home

Sydney premiere of Solange Knowles' new moving image work

The Gallery presents an extended director’s cut featuring new scenes and musical arrangements of When I get home, the latest interdisciplinary performance art film by artist and singer/songwriter Solange Knowles.

When I get home is an exploration of origin and spiritual expedition and the personal evolutions required to leave one’s place of birth. Shot in Knowles’ home state of Texas, the film honours her Houston lineage by creating a pastiche of iconic Houston locations, abstract narratives featuring black cowboys, and incorporating the work of other Houston-raised artists.

The film was directed and edited by Knowles with contributing directors Alan Ferguson, Terence Nance, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Ray Tintori. Additional art courtesy of Houston artists Autumn Knight and Robert Pruitt and collage work by Gio Escobar of Standing on The Corner. The film also features new sculptural work by the artist, Boundless body (2019), an 8 by 100 ft. rodeo arena displayed in the desert of Marfa, which sits alongside many architectural wonders in the film, such as the Rothko Chapel at the Menil Collection and the I M Pei-designed Dallas City Hall.

NB: Knowles will not be in attendance.
