Els Dietvorst [BE/IR]
I watched the white dogs of the dawn
04.12 – 10.12.2016
In this video installation, Els Dietvorst allows the residents of a small Irish fishing village to speak. The pressure caused by European fishing quotas threatens the village’s survival. Dietvorst sets the deeply human individual stories against the backdrop of the wider European political and economic situation. The installation is a first step towards a new film, which will follow on from The Rabbit and the Teasel (2014) as the second part of a trilogy about the relationship between humans and the natural world, and about how our food chain is shaped.
