Online exhibition: Ellie Kyungran Heo: Island

27 - 28 November

LUX: Online

LUX and the London Korean Film Festival present an online screening of Island (2015) by Ellie Kyungran Heo to coincide with her solo exhibition Plantarians (2017-2020).

A fragmentary portrait of a small island located at the southernmost point of South Korea, Island follows the everyday lives of residents marked by solitude unless interrupted by waves of tourists. At the centre is a mysterious white stray dog that drifts through fluctuating atmospheres and weaves disparate realities, drawing a psychogeographical map of an island as a site of departure and arrival, isolation and connection. Island resists closure and encourages us to pay continued attention to lives beyond the screen, full of unexplained incidents and unresolved tensions.
