1395 Days without Red
The College of Architecture, Art and Design in collaboration with Sharjah Art Foundation present: 1395 Days without Red ejla Kamerić & Anri Sala | In collaboration with Ari Benjamin Meyers | A cinematic project comissioned by Artangel UK
1395 Days without Red draws on the experience of the siege of Sarajevo between 1992 and 1996 and the trauma of the besieged citizens as they made their way through the city. The title refers to the fact that, during the siege, the Sarajevans were advised not to wear bright colours that might alert the snipers in the hills above to their movements.
1395 Days without Red is a cinematic project by ejla Kamerić and Anri Sala in collaboration with Ari Benjamin Meyers. Commissioned by the internationally-lauded UK-based organisation Artangel, 1395 Days without Red comprises two separate works made from material developed and filmed together in Sarajevo. This is the Middle East premiere of this film and Artangel's first project to be hosted in the region.
1395 Days without Red is commissioned by Artangel with Manchester International Festival, Whitworth Art Gallery (Manchester), Fundació Museu D'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (Rotterdam), enabled by Han Nefkens, H+F patronage, Festival d'Automne (Paris), Arts Council England, European Cultural Foundation, Film Fund Sarajevo, Marian Goodman Gallery (New York), Hauser & Wirth (London & Zurich).
