Dust Group Screening
September 8, 2016 @ 6:30 pm UTC+1
‘Dust is a programme of short films by artists and filmmakers on the theme of histories and landscapes. Ben River’s The Coming Race is a hand-processed film capturing a mysterious ascent up a rocky mountain. Artist Basim Magdy’s The Many Colors of the Sky Radiate Forgetfulness unfolds a dark narrative on time, nature and humanity. Artist Rosa Barba builds a sci-fi like narrative around abandoned locations in Subconscious Society.
Part of the Liverpool Biennial 2016 Film Programme Another Version of Events.
Another Version of Events is the official Liverpool Biennial 2016 film programme. A selection of films influenced by genres including sci-fi, mockumentary, pseudo-documentary, mockbuster and ethnofiction is being screened every week throughout the Biennial.
After the film, there will also be a screening of Raphael Hefti’s An Aluminothermic Reaction Producing Liquid Steel, Filmed at 2000 Frames per Second (2016). The film is a new artwork by Hefti, that continues his experiments in thermite welding – an engineering process devised in 1893, still used in the assembly of high-speed railway tracks today. Over the course of two weeks in May 2016, the artist transported nearly 100 tonnes of sand to the former construction site of the Pullman Hotel, transforming it into an outdoor studio and make-shift film set. The result is an intimate, near-hallucinatory work that oscillates between the industrial and the digital.’
