Kerry Tribe: There Will Be ________

29 March–17 May 2014

Curated by Anna Zammit

There Will Be_______ is centred around a 30 minute film by Los Angeles-based artist Kerry Tribe. The piece addresses one of the twentieth century's most shocking and mysterious society murders. Filmed on location at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, in the very rooms where the killings took place, and using only dialogue appropriated from dozens of Hollywood feature films that were shot within the storied estate, There Will Be_______ proposes a series of explanations for how a Los Angeles oil tycoon and his personal assistant were killed. The official finding was murder-suicide—the assistant killed his boss in a fit of paranoia and then shot himself. Of course, other theories abound. When the mansion was sold in 1955 it became a popular Hollywood filming location. Over sixty feature films have used the mansion as a set. The Los Angeles Times says of Tribe's film: 'The dialogue is both uncannily familiar and awkwardly stilted, as if the actors are skipping lines or reciting from different pages ... the script both propels the narrative and fractures the illusion, reminding us that we don’t in fact know what really happened'.
