Mox Mäkelä’s Host Sapiens (2018) was screened at Swedenborg Film Festival, held in November 23, in the Swedenborg Society, London.
Mox Mäkelä’s Host Sapiens is an experimental ecocritical video art poem. “Mass extinction is here. Our plate will be soon bigger than our planet. Our choice.”
Mox Mäkelä (b. 1958) is a conceptual artist active since 1978. Mäkelä’s art has been shown widely in different venues and contexts, e.g. in the Maritime museum of Finland and at international film and art festivals. In her ecocritical films and installations, Mäkelä examines the clash between nature and human nature within the marine milieu. Another part of her oeuvre is “idiot ibidem”, a long-term extended project that studies a literary historical chain of events with full methodological freedom and diversity.
