16th – 19th July 2010


This collection of artist’s film and video showcases a variety of work that offers a surreal, dark and unforgiving view of nature and the landscape. The films have an alternative take on the sentimental view usually attributed to these themes.The title ‘Nature is the Church of Satan’, comes from a line in the Lars Von Trier film 'Antichrist', 2009. The film depicts a sequence of events that reveal the main female character becoming seduced, andeventually driven mad, by her intense relationship with nature, in particular the woods. Curated by Louise Colbourne and Paul Burgess.
