Reviews

When artists D (Viv Albertine) and H (Liam Gillick) decide to sell the home that they have loved and lived in for two decades, they begin a difficult process of saying goodbye. The upheaval has caused anxieties to surface and D struggles to control the personal and creative aspects of her life with H. Dreams, memories and fears have all imprinted themselves on their home, which exists as a container for their lives and has played a pivotal role in their marriage. How will their relationship - and their art - exist without its confines?

A stark, challenging and multi-layered film, shot through with penetrative insight and rigorous integrity, this new, uncompromising work by Joanna Hogg (Archipelago, Unrelated) has secured her place at the vanguard of not just British but international arthouse cinema.

This is not a film that grabs you. It creeps up slowly - very slowly, almost hypnotically.
This is a snapshot of the life of middle class artists, both of whom work from their home, in separate parts of the house, largely communicating by phone. The third and most powerful character in the film is, in fact, the home itself, a large, hard surfaced, door sliding set upon which the characters are portraying their own hard and soft surfaces, to themselves and each other.
At the outset, I had anticipated a film depicting the slow revelation of internal conflict between this couple, who were in the process of selling their beloved home - also the studio for their work - and moving elsewhere, in the manner of Joanna Hogg's previous films.
What I saw here, however, was how an intelligent, enlightened, artistic couple cope with loss and change and how that impacts on the couple's art and on the relationship with themselves and each other.
This film shows how we identify with our houses, particularly if we also work there. They become an extension of ourselves: the mother who keeps us safe and contained. It also demonstrates the conflict between the desire for something new and exhilarating, and our love and need of the familiar.
What was also fascinating, was how this couple managed their separateness and desire, while living and working together, one scene showing the female partner's masturbation and also the couple's lovemaking, all in the marital bed. It also shows how they managed their separate approaches to art and how they also came together on this.
On the whole, this film shows a slow unfurling of a couple's life in the midst of change.

Format: Blu-ray
My first thought after watching this film and trying to formulate a review is how the production team and director Joanna Hogg managed to get funding for it. The subject matter - an upper-middle class professional couple living in an expensive town-house in what looks like Shoreditch or some other gentrified part of London - would probably appeal to the sort of people (Londoners?) who go to see art films on the big screen, but would have no relevance at all for anyone else. Maybe that's the point. The plot, such as it is, involves said couple, highly-strung artistic types who call each other only by their initials, experiencing some strain in their relationship whilst they sell their apartment. The female, D, has a habit of meditating in odd places and doesn't like going out. Her partner, H, has an office on the top floor and calls D on the internal phone when he wants sex or someone to talk to. Despite the weird and austere setting, I found Exhibition strangely compelling - like its title, this is a film that works best as a think-piece rather than as a conventional movie. It's quite beautiful to look at, with much use made of static camera positions and photographic framing, and the careful sound design demands a decent audio set-up, or at least quiet neighbours. You'll have to appreciate art films though to forego the lack of dramatic tension. As for the blu-ray, I've no complaints about the pristine HD transfer, typical of digital cinematography. As with most Artifical Eye releases there is a decent selection of extras, with interviews with cast and the director.

The previous reviewer must have wandered in to the wrong film as they should not have been trying to have a night out with a film like this. Joanna Hogg's Exhibition is a wonderful movie and if not much happens, then good. What does happen is awkward, funny, blank and always fascinating. if you want the usual them there is plenty on at a multiples to satisfy you, if you want something else then choose this. it's a liberating few hours and Viv Albertine is just a goddess.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
English screenwriter and director Joanna Hogg`s third feature film which she wrote, is inspired by the house and works of a 20th and 21st century architect named James Melvin (1912-2011). It premiered in the international competition section at the 66th Locarno International Film Festival in 2013, was screened in the Dare Gala section at the 57th London Film Festival in 2013, was shot on location in England and is a UK production which was produced by producer Gayle Griffiths. It tells the story about someone named D and H.

Distinctly and precisely directed by English filmmaker Joanna Hogg, this quietly paced fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints though mostly from the protagonist`s point of view, draws a dense portrayal of an artist couple`s relationship and how it is affected after they decide to sell their house. While notable for its naturalistic and atmospheric milieu depictions, distinct cinematography by cinematographer Ed Rutherford, production design by production designer Stéphane Collonge, film editing by film editor Helle Le Fevre and use of sound, colors and light, this character-driven and narrative-driven story about a lifestyle, the human condition, self-expression and regaining trust and chemistry, depicts an authentically humane and internal study of character.
