Visions in the Nunnery – the Nunnery Gallery’s renowned showcase of recent moving image and performance – is back. Three programmes will present an international overview of some of the most exciting and boundary-pushing digital art, showing over 60 international artists selected from over 1,000 submissions.
For the first time, Visions presents special Saturday screenings, presenting works on the gallery’s main screen at 3pm on Saturday afternoons. A chance to see longer works or those that take to a bigger screen, the screenings are an opportunity to further explore outstanding works selected from the Visions world-wide open call.
Programme 3’s special screening brings together three works from across the world that collectively explore the fragility of environment and belonging.
Ellie Kyungran Heo The Planet (South Korea / UK)
The Planet is a quiet meditation on the creatures that occupy the spaces we inhabit. Poetic pauses focus on those that go unnoticed, in abstracted, beautiful visual vignettes.
Prapat Jiwarangsan Destination Nowhere (Thailand)
One day in Japan, a young man found out that a place he had thought his only home country rejected him.
Destination Nowhere is a film about both the artist’s process of making a new artwork, and a story about a young man who inspired the work. The story is about Thailand, Japan and the in-between world of immigration and not knowing where you belong.
Mauricio Sanhueza The House (Peru)
The House is a visual documentation of the decadence of a late 1960s Peruvian middle-class building, as well as an invisible man’s self-portrait. Trapped by the walls he lives in, he seeks help from the words of the great poet Cesar Vallejo, from which he enters into a deep abyss.
