Part of the program

Presented on the occasion of the exhibition Ser Serpas: Hall at Swiss Institute. Hall features works by Ser Serpas made in the decade since the artist moved from her hometown of Los Angeles; a study of bodies, movement and constructions with unfixed futures, an outcome of years of travel.

As a prelude, Serpas and artist Rafik Greiss will show their collaborative video, Untitled (VHS Tape), which depicts Serpas constructing temporary sculptures in Paris and its outskirts. The program will be introduced by Ashley Darrow, a critic and co-host of the podcast Horror Vanguard.

The Ring is one of the most iconic modern-day horror films, a smash-hit thriller on release that continues to haunt over 20 years later. It begins as just another urban legend — the whispered tale of a nightmarish videotape that causes anyone who watches it to die seven days later. But when four teenagers all meet with mysterious deaths exactly one week after watching just such a tape, investigative reporter Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) tracks down the video… and watches it. Now, the legend is coming true, the clock is ticking and Rachel has just seven days to unravel the mystery of The Ring.
