Patrick Hough: The Two Faces of Tomorrow
- This event has passed.
Patrick will introduce the conceptual shift in his practice away from history represented in cinema, to new ideas around deep time, ecology, technology and the Anthropocene. In the creation of this new work, The Two Faces of Tomorrow, to be premiered at Cork Film Festival 2020, he examines algae (or specifically cyanobacteria) as actors that have shaped all life on earth, from the deep past through to the near and deep future.
Patrick Hough predominantly uses digital media in order to investigate various historical and contemporary narratives and often uses props or artefacts to reference specific incidents from a range of cultural histories. Hough is a recipient of a 2019 Film London FLAMIN Productions commission and the 2017 Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards. Recent exhibitions include Artist Film International, Whitechapel Gallery, London & MAAT Lisbon, Portugal; False Starts, Solstice Arts Centre, Navan, Ireland; Jerwood / FVU Awards, Firstsite, Colchester and Jerwood Space, London, UK.
