Screening Blue Rose

9 dec 2021    20:00   /   Film@Nest

screening van een film van Olya Korsun

Blue Rose’ stelt complexe vragen die nauw aansluiten bij de tentoonstelling ‘Is it possible to be a revolutionary and like flowers? De film toont voorbeelden van hoe planten en bloemen verschillende betekenissen kunnen dragen en hoe ze ook gezien kunnen worden als symbolen van schoonheid, taal of macht. Op 9 december ben je uitgenodigd om samen met de kunstenaar deze vragen te onderzoeken en te ontvouwen. De film zal worden ingeleid door Barbara Visser, en na de vertoning is er tijd voor een Q&A.

Dit evenement is Engels gesproken.

While some people think of flowers as something purely decorative, the author of Blue Rose believes that flowers can become a powerful source for reflection on the nature of beauty and its commodification. This essayistic documentary film takes us on a compelling journey: from an international flower auction in the Netherlands, crazy science experiments of Japan to pagan festivity in a remote Spanish village, and nostalgic Soviet archives of a family garden. Blue Rose leads us through the world of flowers, reminding us that flowers, being seemingly ephemeral, might give us an important lesson about the world we live in.
