Material Thinking: public programme at CCA Derry-Londonderry

17 May 2014
[opposite]<br/>Agnes Varda, The Gleaners and I (2000)

CCA are pleased to present a discussion and screening event on May 17th from 2pm until 4:30pm as part of the public programme for Sarah Browne’s exhibition, Hand to MouthBrowne will be joined by philosopher Aislinn O’Donnell to discuss the research and decisions made in the production of the works in the exhibition. Returning to the exploration and representation of subsistence economies, the talks will be followed by a screening of The Gleaners and I (2000). This lo-fi experimental documentary by Agnès Varda, shot on digital video, follows a number of ‘gleaners’ or scavengers in rural and urban France. It also positions the filmmaker herself as engaged in a process of ‘gleaning’ ideas, materials and images.

A bus will depart from Golden Thread Gallery at 12:15pm and will leave Derry at 4:30pm. The bus is free but places are limited and booking is essential. Please email us at info@cca-derry-londonderry.org to reserve your seat.

Hand to Mouth continues at CCA Derry~Londonderry until May 24th, 2014.
