Emerald Green by Carolin Koss will be screened in the World of Nature edition of Another Experiment by Women Film Festival, New York, on Tuesday, May 9. Koss will be present in the artist talk as well. The screening and the artist talk take place in the Anthology Film Archive, East Village.
Emerald Green (2016) is a three-channel video installation about a dystopian world, where obscure forces steer the global fate, nature has been rendered extinct, breathable air has become scarce, and the sun has vanished due to the human error and the exploitation of natural resources. The work focuses on three people who try to survive and escape into their sub-consciousness in order to re-imagine and re-build the contaminated world they live in.
Carolin Koss is a Helsinki based artist and filmmaker originally from Germany. Koss works with various mediums and often creates contemplative and aesthetic works, which embody internal landscapes or call for environmental deliberation. Her works recurrently have a dreamlike nature and captivate through symbolic language and stylized imagery. She completed her MFA degree at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki in 2014. Her films and video works have been shown on various international exhibitions and film festivals e.g. in Helsinki, Stockholm, Riga, Berlin, Athens, Venice, London and New York. Koss was recently nominated for the “Young Achiever’s Award” at the Golden Women Awards in Helsinki, she won the 1st price at the Screen & Sound Fest in Kraków and she was granted with the “Hope Award for arising new talents” at the Unprecedented film festival in Tallin.
