IFI & EXPERIMENTAL FILM CLUB: RUINS & ENTROPY PART II

Director: EMILY RICHARDSON; BEN RIVERS; PATRICK KEILLER


The IFI and Experimental Film Club present the second of a two-part programme curated by Aoife Desmond.

Ruins & Entropy Part II continues the thread explored in Part I which focused on Robert Smithson’s art practice and theory. Part II focuses on contemporary filmmakers: Emily Richardson (Memo Mori and Cobra Mist); Ben Rivers (I Know Where I’m Going); and Patrick Keiller (The End); and their exploration of decay and impermanence within the contemporary landscape.

A selection of four films from these filmmakers combines architectural residue and history with a wandering or drifting protagonist and his/her poetic overview. The locations range from Hackney in London and Oxford Ness, a disused military site in England, to a wide ranging European tour and a fragmented tour of Britain ending up in the Isle of Mull.

Dr. Declan Long (co-director, MA Art in the Contemporary World, NCAD) will introduce this programme.
