Projection 27 / Experimental Film Club presents Ruins and Entropy Part I
Irish Film Institute / January 30th /6.30pm
EFC and IFI present the first of a two part programme curated by Aoife Desmond. Ruins and Entropy Part I focuses on two seminal film works by Robert Smithson;Spiral Jetty 1970 and Mono Lake 1968-2004 ( made with his partner Nancy Holt). These two stunning films document Smithson’s working process, his major land sculptureSpiral Jetty, and informal site visits with friends to the alkaline Mono Lake in North America. Smithson’s critical writing on entropy and ruins are a huge influence on art and theory since the 60’s. This programme takes Smithson’s projects as a starting point and explores their relevance for a new generation of filmmakers, who explore and critique the contemporary landscape.
Dr Francis Halsall (co-director, MA Art in the Contemporary World) will introduce this programme.
