Join us for the launch of a new work by Newcastle-based artist Laura Harrington, co-commissioned by Tyneside Cinema and MIMA, alongside two linked performances by participants Ludwig Berger and Luce Choules and a discussion with all artists.
Six artists, an ecologist and two filmmakers spend five days together in an off-grid location surrounded by moorland and blanket bog. Camping on the former site of an important scientific field station in Moor House-Upper Teesdale National Nature Reserve, they collectively explore ways to comprehend, inhabit and work within the context of this remote and ‘wet’ location.
Fieldworking meditatively interweaves footage and field recordings from this journey – the direct interactions and spontaneous encounters between the meeting of artists and land – to capture the multiple adaptations and shared moments that occurred.
Created in collaboration with Chris Bate, Ludwig Berger, Sarah Bouttell, Luce Choules, Simone Kenyon, Fiona MacDonald (Feral Practice), Lee Patterson and Meredith Root-Bernstein.
Co-commissioned by Tyneside CInema and MIMA.
