An interactive screening of two short films featuring in-depth conversations on the themes that brought them to light.
The RSA Fellows Artists' Network presents ‘Hymns to Women’, an evening with filmmaker/artist Elinor Rowlands introduced by Mark Power FRSA.
Everyone is welcome to join this screening and discussion night. Elinor will show her following two films:
1. ‘The Forest’ 2018
2. ‘At the Window' 2017
About the Director:
Elinor Rowlands FRSA uses new technologies combined with storytelling and performance to disseminate her experience as a neurodivergent woman navigating the world through intersectional identities. Feelings of ‘otherness’ stem from lack of access that many autistic and neurodivergent people encounter, and are offered through the prism of ritual. This gives her digital and performative work a phantasmagorical feel; it is overwhelming and immersive, and secretive yet particularly revealing to diverse audiences. As a feminist neurodivergent artist, she makes comment on identity politics and highlights her innate compassion for tradition and natural forces. Through dream-building and ancient sensibility, her work asks questions about where new technologies and live performance meet and breaks new ground.
