This special event takes placeat the Whitechapel Gallery on Wednesday 7-9pm in the Zilkha Auditorium.
Ailbhe Ní Bhriain presents her recent film Inscriptions of an Immense Theatre (2018). With a distinctive blend of film and computer generated imagery, Inscriptions of an Immense Theatre explores ideas of imperial legacy, human displacement and the Anthropocene. Transforming three distinct locations into states of dreamlike strangeness, this work conjures a disorientating vision of a future destabilised by climate change. While drawing us into a space of quiet estrangement, it asks us to consider the interconnected systems of the past and present that have led to this point of crisis. The film’s heightened visuals are accompanied by a voiceover, performed by Eileen Walsh and a commissioned soundtrack by Susan Stenger.
