Video works at upcoming 9 Stones Artists exhibtion for Eigse

the neighbours (2012) HD video 00:34 cathy fitzgerald

Nine Stones Artists member Cathy Fitzgerald will be exhibiting some experimental film works with the The Nine Stones Artists , at Deighton Hall, Carlow, for Eigse 2012, 9-17 th June.

Since Cathy’s works to date are mostly 1-2 minute clips and are a video diary of an ongoing, slow art & ecology forest transformation project (she is transforming her conifer plantation to a permanent forest), she will make a film-reel of different short works for Eigse 2012,  with some new clips such as ‘the neighbours’ sketch above. It will show her interest in moving from conventions of overly narrated nature documentary to exploring cinematic perspectives that attempt to more sensitively attend, give more prominence to the universe of communities that make up her small forest, on which others and herself depend.  Her recent writings about ecocide and the anthropocene (the age of man) has made her aware that we must urgently extend our perceptions to encompass the more-than-human world, and  ‘yield to our neighbours, even to our animal (and plant) neighbours, the same right as ourselves to inhabit’ this land, if we are all to survive and thrive.

Cathy is currently working on a long term artistic project entitled: ‘The ecocidal eye: beyond the anthropocentric (human centered) gaze to a relational gaze in cinema’, see more at  the ecocinema enquiry
