Triple Harvest is a collection of new online video work by Ikran Abdille, Martha Cattell, Amy Cutler, Marie Chantal Hamrock, Sapphire Goss, Amanda Loomes and Vaughan Pilikian. As part of our In Steps of Sundew programme, exploring the push and pull between nature and human presence and the effect that extracting resources from the landscape has upon those living within it, the artists were invited to remix four Corby heritage films to create new narratives through the extraction of archival film material. Ikran Abdille‘s film, titled Triple Harvest, combines found footage of pre-war Somalia with extracts from Peter Paul’s original 1960s documentary film Double Harvest, connecting her current home in Northamptonshire to the place her family fled due to violence.

Sunday Supplement: Sculpting Conversation by Mark Bleakley, 12pm, 6 Sep
This online Sunday Supplement will introduce artist and choreographer Mark Bleakley whose connected projects and practices, that Dance4 has been supporting remotely, would have had a physical presence at iC4C. The outcomes from the remote participatory project, A Body Under Pressure will be shared by Mark and some of those who contributed from home. Join us to reflect on humans’ relationships to the material world and to hear about the physical experience of being part of Mark’s work. Mark invites you to think about how and why we place value upon the objects around us and how our bodies are transformed through their interactions.
