DOP WITH SOPHIA AL MARIA FOR WHITECHAPEL GALLERY Sophia Al-Maria: BCE 12 January 2018 – 28 April 2019 Galleries 5&6, Free Entry #BCE Working on This project with Sophia Al Maria was transformative, I thoroughly enjoyed. Thursday 15 November 2018 –Marking the culmination of a year-long collaboration as Whitechapel Gallery’s Writer in Residence, this new project from artist, writer and filmmaker Sophia Al-Maria (b. 1983, US) draws on feminism and radical queer politics to consider themes of history and narrative. BCE presents two distinct creation myths side by side – one ancient, one new. In an ongoing collaboration Al-Maria has invited London-based artist, writer and performer Victoria Sin (b. 1991, Canada) to conceive of a new creation myth in a film work specially-commissioned for Whitechapel Gallery and on show for the first time. Sin performs the myth to camera, interrogating the patriarchal dimensions of sex, race, gender and fertility.
