the poetics of mountains, their mutations and multifarious things

Selected by David Gryn

A Screening in Verbier, Switzerland 27 July 2013
Verbier 3-D as part of its ‘Mutations’ programme

Artists include: Darren Almond, Sanford Biggers, Janet Biggs, Ulu Braun, Louise Camrass, Eli Cortinas, Shezad Dawood, Kota Ezawa, Clare Langan, Melanie Manchot, Takeshi Murata and Billy Grant, Mariele Neudecker, Johanna Reich, DJ Spooky, Jaan Toomik, Fabian Weber | Aubert Vanderlinden | Paul Gladstone-Reid.

The poetics of mountains, their mutations and multifarious things is a reflection on the place of this screening and how an audience engages with it’s own reflection.

A programme of mountain, snow and mutation inspired and related films. The selection includes artists’ films and videos that explore how we see and react to the world via the imagery, aesthetics, icons of mountains, snow, ice and indeed their ever-ending mutations. This reflects back on the location and creates a landscape of works that feel as though they belong and are at home in Verbier.
