Brimming with vibrant images of blossoms, orchards, insects and meadows, the works of celebrated filmmaker Rose Lowder explore our relation with and impact on the world. Rare gems selected by Lowder will be shown alongside key works from one of the most distinct bodies of work in French experimental cinema. Grounded in her interest in radical agriculture, colour theory and the landscapes of her adoptive home in the south of France, Lowder is committed to filmmaking as an ecological practice inseparable from her lifelong collecting and championing of non-commercial cinema. Trained as a painter and sculptor in Lima, Peru, and London, Lowder turned to filmmaker in 1977 after studying with Jean Rouch.
Her engagement with ways of living and filming will be explored alongside the meticulous design, composition and production of her films. The screenings will be introduced and followed by conversations with the artist.
Curated by Anat Pick and George Clark.
Rose Lowder is organised in association with Screening Nature, an AHRC funded project at the Department of Film Studies at Queen Mary, University of London, and the University for the Creative Arts, Canterbury.
