THREE COLOURS BLUE, 4 - 29 June 2013
Acclaimed Polish film director Krzysztof Kieslowski made Trois Couleurs: Bleu in 1993. It was the first chapter in a trilogy built around French Revolutionary ideals of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity and won the Venice Film Festival's Golden Lion for its director and lead actress Juliette Binoche.
In the movie Binoche's character tries unsuccessfully to purge the remnants of her former life, and to live in isolation, following a car accident that killed her husband and young daughter.
Twenty years later, in Three Colours Blue, Tim Melville Gallery artists respond both to the film's title and to the premise that human connections are impossible to escape or deny.
