Hetain Patel: Don't Look at the Finger

See Het­ain Patel’s mes­meris­ing film Don’t Look At The Fin­ger’ at Tate St Ives

Hetain Patel’s mesmerising film ‘Don’t Look At The Finger’ combines dance, kung fu and sign language and follows the rituals of a West-African wedding ceremony in a church. The title references a quote by Bruce Lee from the 1973 Kung-Fu film Enter the Dragon.
This work has been chosen in response to themes, such as dance, in the Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life exhibition.

See the film in full at Tate St Ives, alongside the exhibition, until 1 May 2023
