IFI AND EXPERIMENTAL FILM CLUB: A BREATHCRYSTAL

This film screened on Friday 24th April 2015.

This dynamic and investigative screening programme is concerned with ideas around contamination, cross-pollination, symbiosis and infestation. It accompanies A Breathcrystal, an exhibition curated by Mihnea Mircan at Project Arts Centre. A Breathcrystal was originally inspired the Gwion Gwion/Bradshaw paintings, ancient Australian cave and rock drawings that are eternally regenerated by a fungus that inhabits them. By conventional standards these paintings would be considered contaminated but in this instance, through this constant transformation, they carry new meaning. This screening programme will show work from Pierre Huyghe, Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll & Claire Loussouarn, Sven Johne, Susan Schuppli, Nicola Martini and Saskia Olde Wolbers.

A Breathcrystal runs at Project Arts Centre from April 24th to May 30th.
