Kutlug Ataman Opening Reception Thursday, 12 March, 6-8pm Exhibition Dates 13 March – 18 April, 2009 Thomas Dane Gallery is delighted to present fff a new ten-screen video installation by Kutlug Ataman with original music by British composer Michael Nyman. fff will be Ataman’s first major exhibition in London since Kuba (2005), his acclaimed Artangel project and his first commercial exhibition in a London gallery. fff, an abbreviation of ‘found family footage’, consists of images drawn from home movies of the 1950s and 60s . This footage was borrowed by Ataman from the archives of two British families, the Fryers and the Howards, whose fathers were pioneering researchers into the effects of flight and g-force on pilots. Ataman has appropriated this material and overlaid it with original music composed by Michael Nyman, to create 10 short films, each with its own individual score.
