Dr Davina Quinlivan (Kingston University), author of The Place of Breath in Cinema, will address the significance of air and breath to modes of spectatorship in contemporary culture. Drawing on a range of philosophical and cultural analyses, from the thought of Luce Irigaray to Steven Connor, she will consider the visuality of breath, wind, silence, especially their aural qualities, in films such as Joanna Hogg’s Exhibition (2014) and Aleksander Sokurov’s Russian Ark (2002).
All are welcome for this free public lecture.
