Zo 14 augustus 2016

'Behind the redwood curtain' (2013, 70’) - Liesbeth De Ceulaer
'State of Dogs' (1998, 91’) - Peter Brosens and Dorjkhandyn Tumunk

"Behind the Redwood Curtain takes us on a mesmerizing journey through the dark and eerie Redwood forest. Seven forest dwellers – loggers, scientists, activists and Native Americans – invite us to discover their part of these impressive woods. The ancient Redwoods have always kept the region isolated but now that excessive logging is encroaching, the survival of this unique habitat is under threat. Liesbeth De Ceulaer tells a compelling story about the relationship between man and his natural environment in which she entwines her own impressions of the forest with the beliefs, dreams and fears of the forest inhabitants."

Liesbeth De Ceulaer on State of Dogs (1998, 91’) by Peter Brosens and Dorjkhandyn Tumunk:

"State of Dogs is as an invitation to another world. A world in which reality and myths, beauty and horror, facts and interpretation seamlessly merge into each other. In my work I am searching for that kind of world."
