John Akomfrah / Purple
Bildmuseet presents the most ambitious work to date by the British artist and filmmaker John Akomfrah. Purple is an immersive six-channel video installation addressing man's relationship to nature and to the planet. At a time when greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are at historically high levels and glaciers are melting, Purple poses the question of human responsibility. The work is about the extinction of animals, the memory of ice, the world's oceans filled with plastic, and about global warming. In this epic film work, shown on six monumental projections, archival material is combined with newly staged footage and a hypnotic sound score. Purple is a sequel to Vertigo Sea, which was exhibited at Bildmuseet in 2015. In the creative workshop we will create with inspiration from the exhibition's theme. More information is coming soon!
