LUX Scotland presents: Habiter le Monde (Inhabiting the World)

Description

Habiter le Monde or, Inhabiting the World, navigates the paths crossed and inscribed by refugees, designed and serendipitous alike: harbours, enclaves, deltas, and borders, spaces transformed into places of desolation and detention. The work draws on ancient and modern mythologies of walking - from pilgrimages and diasporas to flâneurisms and derives - as part of its effect. As the artist’s trail presses itself into the grass, into the dust and along the borders of territories and gardens, the film reveals a state in which the mind, body and the world are aligned, as though they were three characters finally in conversation together. Habiter le Monde reveals an immediate method for unfolding stories, of hope, love, play and despair, in order to reclaim the hostile territories and transform them back into fertile ground for life and creativity. Each walk containing its own measure, complete at every point along the way.

Hamedine Kane (born in 1983 in Ksar, Mauritania) is a Senegalese and Mauritanian artist-director. He lives and works in Brussels and Dakar. For the past two years, his work has focused on the subjects of exile and wandering. His artistic practice evolves in relation to the context in which his work is situated, leading him to take a more acute look at public spaces and to consider them as places where interaction and encounter take place.

This screening is presented in partnership with LUX Scotland and will be accompanied by a specially commissioned artist’s response.
