THG presents two immersive film installations by international artist Mikhail Karikis

About

The works share the experience of two very different communities; fisherwomen from the haenyeo community on Jeju island, Korea, and children brought up by the geothermal powerplant in Devil’s Valley, Tuscany.

Both communities have a unique relationship to their environment which is rich in natural resources. As processes of extraction evolve, this way of life is increasingly threatened. Through sounds of labour and community, Karikis encourages us to think about legacy, resistance and possible sustainable futures, across the generations.

  • Children of Unquiet (2013-14)

This film was created with a group of forty-five children living in Devil’s Valley in Tuscany, a volcanic landscape and home to the world’s first geothermal power station. The area has become depopulated following the automation of the process of generating energy. The children take over the empty spaces, recreating the noises of both the natural and man-made landscape: the hissing of steam, the bubbling of water and groaning and rumbling of metal work.
