Jamie Maxtone-Graham – In a Green Island at Nha San Collective, Hanoi, Vietnam: November 7 – 10, 2017
As part of this year’s Hanoi DocFest – Hanoi DocLab’s annual showcase of the moving image and all things documentary – Jamie Maxtone-Graham will be premiering his recent five-channel video installation In a Green Island, the footage for which was filmed at Hanoi’s Botanical Gardens.
With a keenly-observing camera and an ambient sound environment, the five screens frame sleepers within a public landscape that they at once inhabit and are yet not conscious of. The bodies, male and female, can be seen as both a natural part of the landscape and vulnerable within it. There is disquiet in the ambience of it.Share Email
