For a limited time only, the first five episodes of Shezad Dawood’s Leviathan Cycle will be streaming online, at Art Review’s Art Lovers Movie Club and Modern Form’s Film Platform.
The ambitious ten-part project explores some of the most urgent issues of our times: weaving together possible interconnections between marine welfare, migration, borders, the environment, and mental health.
The first instalment, Leviathan Cycle, Episode1: Ben (2017), is available to view online from 21st – 28th May. Following episodes will be released every Thursday alongside virtual conversations between the artist and selected scientists, curators, and critics.
Leviathan Cycle, Episode1: Ben was co-commissioned by the University of Salford Art Collection with Outset Contemporary Art Fund and Leviathan-Human & Marine Ecology, with support from The Contemporary Art Society. Courtesy: the artist and UBIK Productions.
