IBT21 The Rupture

Winterage: Last Milk

Description Details

Online screening & live Q&A

The thousand-year history of a farm in rural Derbyshire, entangles with the life of queer Chicago-based artist, Mark Jeffery.

Returning to his childhood home in December 2019 to memorialise personal loss, and extending his body via the wearable sculptures of Grace Duval, Mark’s choreography brings forward the mineral and animal in all of us within a film composition that considers connections between place, language, loss and movement.

You are invited to a screening of Winterage: Last Milk followed by a live Q&A with artists Lucy Cash and Mark Jeffrey, with Facilitator & Host Sara Jane Bailes.

"Uncanny and unlike anything I’ve experienced before. The film brings so many different agencies together and distributes them (human/nonhuman, physical body, animated body, physical landscape, animated landscape, text, physical sound, mediated sound, song). These are all inseparable from personal/social history, pop cultures and hidden cultures, queer cultures, wild/unbounded space, confined space, climate change..." Lin Hixson (Every House Has A Door)
