THOSE THAT, AT A DISTANCE, RESEMBLE ANOTHER d. Jessica Sarah Rinland, 2019 + Q&A with the director & Natural History Museum Curator of Mammals, Richard Sabin at ICA (14 AUG 18:30).

  • “The ICA presents the debut feature by Argentinian-British artist-filmmaker Jessica Sarah Rinland, a meditative contemplation on conservation, preservation and authenticity through a singular prism: the gradual fabrication of a replica elephant’s tusk. Rinland offsets the sterility of the multiple laboratory settings with a sumptuous colour palette (filmed on Super 16mm), hypnotically capturing a series of hands as they undertake a series of delicate tasks with care and precision in a process that falls midway between science and art.”
