GráNite Presents: Last Things + Vicky Langan.
3 November, 2023Time
GráNite is a series of events celebrating old stones and the history & folklore that surrounds them.
Inspired by iconic megalithic monuments; stone circles, cairns, passage mounds, dolmens, and portal tombs, GráNite aims to explore the rich geology, history, folklore, and cultural significance of ancient stones through music, art, film and discussion. These old stones, often overlooked, many still uncovered, can tell us a lot about the past and our connection to the land. The project seeks to foster a deeper appreciation for the stones themselves, their shapes & forms, landscapes, discoveries, stories and energy. GráNite started in 2022 by Rachael Campbell-Palmer. @granite_belfast
We are delighted to work with GráNite on this special screening of Last Things (2023) by renowned artist/ filmmaker Deborah Stratman. Her film is a meditation on the permanence of rock and stone, which exists all around and underneath us. It is a reminder of the processes of formation happening on earth for millennia, but also acts as a kind of salve for current fears of climate crisis and extinction.
The screening will be followed by a ‘stone’ inspired DJ set from artist and filmmaker Vicky Langan. Vicky Langan is a Cork-based artist whose practice operates across sound, performance, and film.
