You and your friends are invited to a special Sunday afternoon screening of:

Abigail Sidebotham:
I came like all the ghosts at once

Sunday 25 March 2018 2–4pm

Including a gallery talk with artist Abigail Sidebotham and film narrator Rachel Marshall.

I came like all the ghosts at once is an oral and visual retelling of the Sea Empress oil spill that occurred off the coast of Pembrokeshire in 1996. It brings together research, verbal accounts, archival material, people and places encountered by the artist during her 2016 ‘Sea Empress’ Project.

Filmed across Pembrokeshire the narration, written by Rachel Marshall and recited by poet Gillian Clark, represents a collection of people’s memories of the oil spill. Describing an immediate physical and aural shift of register after the disaster, the work explores the deep symbolic and allegorical richness of the landscape and imagines new interpretations and alternative, ‘more-than human’, ecological states of being for the future.

The film is also being screened in the gallery 22–25 March 10am–5pm.
