Aquatic Tales presents three films that merge elements of documentary, fiction and abstraction, with water and aquatic life as central elements. The night journeys from a microscopic view of microorganisms living in the Oslo Fjord, hidden to the naked human eye; to an encounter with algae in Roman baths, laboratories and a glass of water; finally zooming out to the violent destruction of oil and gas platforms that have been lifted from the sea. The films reflect upon our relationship with water and thereby express a critical view on industrial and capitalist practices that distance us from nature.
Reclaiming Vision will be introduced through the presentation of a text written by the artists. Decom by Tanja Engelberts will be introduced by PhD researcher and curator Anna-Rosja Haveman. The Two Faces of Tomorrow by Patrick Hough will be introduced by the artist, who will also be available for questions afterwards.
This film night is part of the public programme of Still Waters Run Deep, an exhibition about the interaction between humans and water curated by Marlies Augustijn. The film night is a collaboration with MACA (Moving Arts Centre Amsterdam).
