John AKOMFRAH, Four Noctures

📍The Tower, Luma Foundation, Arles

▪️ Installation iDzia : triptych video projection, 7.1 sound

The three-screen video installation Four Nocturnes is the third installment in a trilogy of films including Vertigo Sea (2015) and Purple (2017) that explores the complex and intertwined relationship between humanity's destruction of the natural world and our destruction of ourselves. Using the decline of African elephant populations as a narrative backbone, Four Nocturnes unfolds as a set of impressionistic meditations. The work questions mortality, loss, fragmented identity, mythology and memory through poetic visuals that survey the landscape of African cultural heritage.
