F A U L T L I N E S - installation
23 - 25 September
Block 67, Folkestone

As part of
SALT + EARTH Festival of Landscape,
Seascape and the Environment

Between sedimentary lines of compression and exposure, connected under a body of water, SITE presents FAULT LINES : a multi-media installation gathering together material from site-responsive collaborative performances that took place in quarries in Kent, UK and Northern France.

Documented and offered as a witnessing of temporal images, actions, and gestures, this installation presents processes and dialogues between artists and sites where the visible process of erosion and extraction provides the opportunity to respond to the geological and anthropological histories uncovered by human and industrial scale touch.

By taking a queer ecological approach F A U L T L I N E S unfolds the potential to explore how geological connections might offer reciprocal encounters and the ways in which we might learn from the unearthing of layers of compressed histories.

The two chanel video from F A U L T  L I N E S has gone on to be included in the Cine + Perfor 2022 festival and an exhibition entitled Dawn. at UCA Cantebury’s Herbert Read Gallery.

Cine + Perf

Dawn. brings together artists whose practice uses performance, sculpture, photography and film to call to attention the connection between humans and the land.

The exhibition programme seeks to activate and awaken ideas of simultaneously beginning and returning, to new-ancient knowledge, to ancestorial stories held in the body and the desire to belong as part of the land.
