The Dutch artist Guido Van der Werve makes films based on his personal interests, including extreme sports. For Nummer Vierteen: Home (exhibited in the Melancholia exhibition), he completed an epic 1000-mile triathlon between the Church of the Holy Cross in Warsaw, where Chopin’s heart is preserved, and the cemetery of Père Lachaise in Paris, where the composer’s body was laid to rest. Here Van der Werve will discuss this film and his other more recent work, alongside a screening.
This free discussion will take place from 6.30-8pm in the Screening Room, Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 1LA.
Places are limited. For further details and to book visit https://guidovanderwervetalk.eventbrite.co.uk
