E.S.P.: New Mineral Collective
October 10th, 2020

Artist Talk at 2:00pm

Fillip and Cineworks are pleased to announce an upcoming virtual screening and conversation with New Mineral Collective as part of E.S.P., an ongoing series looking at the relationship between film and speculative modes of visuality.

Join us Saturday, October 10 for a free, day-long screening of three short films, followed by a live streamed discussion at 2pm PDT with the artists moderated by Nicole Kelly Westman. Presented in partnership with SFU Galleries, Vancouver.

Screening Program:
Pleasure Prospects (2019)
Hollow Earth (2013)
Neon Oasis (2019)

This event continues our investigation into the interdisciplinary space between documentary, narrative, and formalist film, presenting work that complicates notions of science and fiction and the binary systems of knowledge they have come to represent.

In their work, New Mineral Collective occupies a quasi-institutional space, drawing critical attention to the way land has been altered by global extractive industries. Through a counter-narrative that employs the visual language of industrial filmmaking and sci-fi, New Mineral Collective document dystopic, “perforated landscapes,” shifting the value of land and its resource and beginning the process of healing geo-trauma.

RSVP required for screening and discussion information.

About the Artists

Tanya Busse and Emilija Škarnulytė are New Mineral Collective, a platform that looks at contemporary landscape politics to better understand the nature and extent of human interaction with the Earth’s surface. As an organism, New Mineral Collective infiltrates the extractive industry, driven though the alternative forces of desire, body mining, and acts of counter prospecting.

Nicole Kelly Westman is a visual artist of Métis and Icelandic descent. She is currently the Education & Learning Programmer at 221a. As an artist, she enjoys practices of listening, watching, hosting, poeticizing, foraging, and sharing. Her writing has been published in Inuit Art Quarterly, C Magazine, and Luma Quarterly.
