A free evening of artists’ films on the theme of environmental disquiet, exploring the anxious line between the natural world and our interventions within it. Burn/Out addresses our current global preoccupation with climate and environmental degradation, a preoccupation that has immediate urgency and relevance in Cork in the context of the OPW’s proposed flood prevention measures. The curated programme will bring together canonical work documenting 1970s land art, performance and body art with contemporary animation and new work by Cork based artists, each addressing the increasingly fraught relationship between the self and environment.

The programme is presented by Pluck Projects who are commencing as visual arts curators-in-residence for Cork Midsummer Festival in May 2019. The residency is supported by the Glucksman who will offer mentorship expertise and other resources to the curators.
