Geomancers Screening Programme: Inspiration for sustainable future
IHME Helsinki presents a free screening of video works offering perspectives on the future of humanity and our planet at 17:30 on 5 October 2022 at Finnkino Maxim in Helsinki.
Geomancers features nine video works that share a concern about the accelerating environmental crisis, the sixth wave of extinction, the marginalization of indigenous communities, and the loss of traditional knowledge. The film programme has been curated by Anna Lovecchio and Magdalena Magiera, curators at NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore, a research centre of Nanyang Technological University. The video works were originally selected as part of the multimedia exhibition Free Jazz IV. Geomancers (NTU CCA Singapore, 14–23 January 2022).
The works take the viewer from the shores of Panangatan in the Philippines to the Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway, they give voice to the consciousness of indigenous peoples and their folk tales, and show the complexity of the relationship between the human-shaped world and the natural environment. Together, they offer an opportunity to expand our ways of looking at the world outside the lens of scientific rationalism. The creators of the video works are award-winning artists working around the globe.
The screening is free of charge and does not require advance registration but seats are limited and will be filled in order of arrival.
The screening is also a part of Frame Contemporary Art Finland’s Rehearsing Hospitalities programme’s satellite events.
