film Sol Archer selected for IFFR


Beeld: IFFR

On a bare rock by the ocean you will never hear anything but birds whose cries blend with the sound of winds

During his residency at Kunsthuis SYB last summer, Sol Archer worked on the project Gardening Practices. The film Sol made in collaboration with the Tropical Greenhouse in Beetsterzwaag has been selected for the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) and will be screened on Friday, January 27.

About the film:
The greenhouse as the epitome of constructed nature. A floral spectacle unfolds within the glass walls. Volunteers add to the experience by imitating the sounds of the tropics, using the system for musical notation of birdsong created by Hercule Florence. This Monégasque-Brazilian artist, photographer, discoverer and inventor had already brought nature, images and sound together two centuries earlier.

Date: Friday 27 January 2023
Time: 15:30 & 20:00
Lantaren Venster, Rotterdam
