A special screening as part of the exhibition A Special Arrow Was Shot In The Neck…, on display at DRAF from 13 June to 2 August 2014.Medium Earthis a film that attunes itself to the seismic psyche of the state of California. It listens to its deserts, translates the writing of its stones, and deciphers the calligraphies of its expansion cracks. Its intensive surface readings offer the cinematic survey of a techtonic upheaval to come.Within this volatile present, Californian ‘earthquake sensitives’ arise as corporeal self-instruments of premonition, prediction and preemption. Their bodies resonate in radical collusion with the geo-techtonic event sphere. They decode a symptomatology that implodes corporeal and chronological time as well as the global architecture of techno-industrial earth sensing.Commissioned by REDCAT, Medium Earthis the first work produced by The Otolith Group within an American context.PLEASE NOTE: Seats for this event are free but places are limited – please arrive by 6pm in order to be seated. This event will take place at Rio Cinema, 107 Kingsland High St, London E8 2PB, London.DRAF Curators’ Series is supported by Arts Council England. Screening in association with LUX.
