Review

Geologist, professor at the University of Leicester, Jan Zalasiewicz introduces the concept of “Ghost Strata” to Ben Rivers, the missing elements within the rock surfaces, that despite their absence offer hints of what was once there. The Shape of Things is a combination of film footage, sound and text elements shot in Sao Paulo, Nottingham and Thailand. Presented as “work-in-progress,” the exhibition presents the two-minute footage from January to June from the record of a whole year.

English media artist and director Ben Rivers has a special bond with Jeonju IFF ? 11 of his works were screened. Since his short films were first screened in 2007, masterpieces from Origin Of The Species (2008) to The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers (2015) were introduced in Jeonju. Crossing between documentary, fiction and essay films, he documents how isolated and forgotten places and species evolve through a natural history-based approach. In his recent works, the scenes of disconnected people become the origin of a narrative about an imagined alternative community. Rivers’ works display the media aesthetics of “cinema” through the usage of a near-antique camera and handworked 16mm film. At this year’s festival, he presents his recent films Trees Down Here, Ghost Strata and Now, At Last!.
