The UK premiere of two recent works by John Gerrard. Cuban School (Community 5th of October) 2010 and Cuban School (Sancti Spiritu) 2011 are meticulous slow-moving virtual portraits of schools constructed in the 1960s Cuban countryside that are now decaying functional ruins. Both works are infinite in duration based on a continuous real-time 365-day solar cycle, and powerfully mark the melancholic demise of a political vision.
