The awe-inspiring power of nature and its associated weather systems as explored across a range of groundbreaking works by renowned artist filmmakers. Subtle shifts in natural light, delicate tidal movements and the terraforming power of seasonal change determine the shape and structure of several of the films here. Others reflect with great beauty on the impact that nature has on our lives as an alchemical, elemental force. A timely programme for today’s changing world.

Trilogy, Inger Lise Hansen DVD
Inger Lise Hansen is a visual artist with background in experimental film and animation who for the last two decades has produced a distinctive and acclaimed body of moving image work. This publication presents her recent film trilogy, Proximity (2006), Parallax (2009) and Travelling Fields (2009); a series of spatial deconstructions using disorientating perspective and animation to foreground landscape and architectural elements across a series of diverse locations, from a shopping centre in Linz to the deserted landscapes of north-western Russia. The films are accompanied by specially commissioned texts by Nicole Hewitt, Stefan Grissemann and Trude Schjelderup Iversen.

“Hansen’s films are fundamentally simulations; feigning naturalness, continuity and movement, (...): In them, the sky becomes sea, a low point, a base. They quite literally portray a world on the brink, a realm of condensed time and strained space.” Stefan Grissemann
