Event description

Description

In the culminating event of her three month residency serving as the Goethe at LUX Artist in Residence, Liz Rosenfeld will present a new film work entitled, Fuck Tree.

After spending time in LUX film archive, Liz came across Luther Price's film, Sodom (1989.) At the time of its completion, Sodom was questioned by the far left and far right for its depiction of the AIDS Crisis and reflections of 'pre- AIDS' gay culture. After extensive research into the history, methodology and imagery of Sodom, Liz decided to create a new film which portrays an infamous tree in the cruising area of Hampstead Heath and reflects on her own questions relating to queer historical public space and shifting ecologies.

While in residence at LUX, Liz has been conducting creative research regarding questions dealing with queer dystopia, a positive embrace of apocalypse, invisible genocide, and drawing parallels between the way information was publicly disseminated in the early days of the AIDS/ HIV crisis, and the current spread of information about climate change and environmental destruction. She has made Fuck Tree as a companion piece to Sodom, specifying that it can only ever be screened publicly alongside Luther Price’s film.

Following the screening Liz Rosenfeld will be in conversation with Performer/ Producer/ Lecturer R Justin Hunt.
