ICAT Playdate: Húnaflói

May 4 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am UTC-5

Event Navigation

Description: Húnaflói is a mulit-part video art series about searching, carbon, love, intersections, fishermen, scientists, personal memory, fish memory, and the things fish tell one another. Set in the fishing villages around Húnaflói bay, in far northern Iceland in the dead of winter, Húnaflói explores questions of loss, fluidity, and remembering at the intersection of a tiny community's cod fishermen and their work on the Greenland Sea, and the village's unlikely resident marine biotechnologists and fisheries scientists. The work is rooted in truth but plays conceptually with the forces of nature and the supranatural.

Speaker: Rachel Weaver and Les Duffield, School of Visual Arts
