A Visit, A Ceremony, A Gift, is a new film commission curated by Kate Strain as part of the TULCA UnSelfing programme for Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture, supported by The French Embassy in Ireland.
The film focuses on the research and practice of Austrian artist and philosopher Elisabeth Von Samsonow who has been inspired by the role of the White Goddess, and the Deep Ecology movement. Elisabeth von Samsonow uses an alphabet based on trees native to both Ireland and Austria, to create poetry and uncover its’ origin in the woods.
Participating artists: Marielle MacLeman, Ruth Le Gear, Ruby Wallis and Michaële Cutaya, Michelle Doyle, Liliane Puthod, Naïmé Perrette and Sara Sadik; will contribute new work through film, sculpture, music, sound and design investigating the access to nature through poetic language.
A Visit, A Ceremony, A Gift connects distant places by investigating the enduring challenge that all people face. That is, trying to understand the mysterious languages of nature in trees, the open air and the earth.
