Weekend popped up on the wall on Whitworth Street last year (2010) for the Cornerhouse exhibition Unspooling. Stefan Zeyen’s work features 80 site specific fly posters from the Godard film, Weekend (1967). The exhibitions aim was to explore cinema out of its space.
Stefan Zeyen freezes Godard’s infamous ciphers of car-crash capitalism on their murderous mission to Oinville. Tracking the outside wall of Cornerhouse, Weekend is a static spatial rendering of screen time at one of Manchester’s most traffic-laden junctions. Unspooling website
