Tatiana Macedo: "Seems so long ago, Nancy"

4 Windmill Street is proud to present the full UK premiere of Portuguese artist Tatiana Macedo’s film debut, Seems So Long Ago, Nancy (HDCAM | 45” | 2012). Shot on location at Tate Modern and Tate Britain, London over the course of three months, the film fluctuates between the subject of gallery assistant and the neoclassical and postmodern architectural spaces they occupy.

Separated from the curated programme surrounding the employee and the uniformed visitor service role they are positioned to operatein; Seems So Long Ago, Nancy acts as a passive lens without a‘countershot’, or point of view shot, as if the gallery is looking from within. This introspection is compounded by chasmic moments of reverberation in background chatter, met equally head on with moments of silence and contemplation.

Seems So Long Ago, Nancy premiered at the international film festival Doclisboa, Portugal in October 2012 and extracts have been screened at Tate Britain, London (2012) and the Stedelijk Museum Bureau Video Programme, Amsterdam (2012). The screening at 4 Windmill Street is accompanied by a supporting photography exhibition and a limited edition production still selection.

Opening 21 N 6PM-9PM UNTIL 15 DECEMBER, 2012.
