No End to Enderby

Director's Programme
Exhibition
Screening

Two films, made collaboratively by Glasgow-based artist Stephen Sutcliffe and theatre director Graham Eatough, invite the viewer into the world of Mr Enderby, often considered the greatest literary figure to come from the mind of A Clockwork Orange author Anthony Burgess.

Enderby is a poet, and also Burgess’s alter ego. The first film depicts a school trip, visiting from another time to study and assess the trappings and worth of Mr Enderby in his 1960s apartment. The second film, a further feat of time travel and literary investigation, shows a young literary historian from the future on a mission to meet Shakespeare and interrogate him about the veracity of his writings.

Showing in the former Govan Town Hall, now Film City, the films, and their accompanying sets, theatrically disorient and cajole our notions of what comprises both the stuff of authenticity and the character of the artist.

Presented by the Contemporary Art Society, 2015, through the Annual Award, funded by the Sfumato Foundation. Commissioned by Glasgow International 2018, The Whitworth, The University of Manchester, Manchester International Festival. With funding from the National Lottery through Creative Scotland. Co-produced with the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester. Supported by Outset Scotland, Lion Eyes TV and The Den. Developed in partnership with LUX / Artists’ Moving Image.
