Three films investigate geography and politics, followed by the artist in conversation with film theorist Rachel Moore.

About

Travelling Amazonia (2006) centres on the artist's attempt to reconstruct the straight line of the Transamazonia road, a 2,500-mile long highway cutting through Brazil's vast Amazonian region. The Last Tour (2004) takes as a point of departure the laws that increasingly regulate our access to and perception of nature in tourists' visits to national parks. The viewer embarks on the last tour on a hot-air balloon flight over the iconic Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps. Her 2003 film Ariana charts the journey of a western film crew to the Pandjsher Valley in the North East of Afghanistan to investigate how this unique landscape has determined its history. This event accompanies the Whose Map is it? exhibition at Rivington Place. Nine artists provide individual insights that inscribe new, often omitted perspectives onto the map. Exhibition open until 24 July and open late until 9pm on Thursdays. bookings@rivingtonplace.org or call 020 7749 1240
