An audio-visual project specifically designed for the Art Pavilion, Request_reply.DM/2077 is Dalibor Martinis’ most recent work – 15 short films, created over the last few years across several international locations. There’s no obvious common thread, as Martinis continues his treasured theme of questions and answers. Seemingly random, these questions were first posed to himself, by himself, in 1978, and he later attempted to answer them in 2010. The key idea here is nonlinear time, and continuity – with this new set of questions, Martinis has set the date of reply for 2077. Aside from big breakthroughs in cryogenics, its unlikely Martinis will be producing audio-visual responses in the two-thousand-and-seventies. Instead, this exhibition encourages answers from the observer, and Martinis has put together a moving exhibition of work. This exhibition, ending on April 17, is the first tribute paid to Martinis this year – in the autumn the Museum of Contemporary Art will host a more definitive retrospective.
