Dancing with “Purple” by John Akomfrah, a 62-minutes film broadcast on 6 simultaneous screens.
“Purple is an immersive, six-channel video installation exploring man’s relationship to nature and the planet, created by British artist and filmmaker John Akomfrah. At a time when greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are reaching historically high levels and glaciers are melting, Purple poses the question of human responsibility.”
