With Ditch Plains, Fahrenholz paints a dystopian scene in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, populated only by the flickering and jagged movements of dancers performing an acrobatic streetstyle called Flexing throughout the hollow, devastated streets.
The Berlin-based artist and filmmaker has made a career out of films that explore or reveal true socio-political conditions through fictionalized events: “nods towards our interpersonal connections of the near future”.
The screening and subsequent Q&A run as part of the Artists’ Film Club at the ICA, a programme of screenings and events concentrating on emerging artists and rarely seen works by established ones that will run until January 31, 2015.
See the ICA event page for details. **
