RUINS & ENTROPY PART 2Part 2 of a two part programme curated by Aoife Desmond. 6.30pm / Tuesday / 26th February Irish Film Institute (6 Eustace Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2)
EFC and IFI present Ruins & Entropy Part 2. Part 2 continues the thread explored in Part 1 which focused on Robert Smithson’s art practice and theory. Part 2 focuses on contemporary filmmakers; Emily Richardson, Ben Rivers and Patrick Keiller 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.
