                  from Forma Arts / Added

                  On 7 March 2014 Forma and Beamish presented a special live performance of The Miners’ Hymns at Easington Social Welfare, County Durham. Here's a glimpse of the event and a few words from the Welfare Centre's Manager and Chair. http://theminershymns.com #TheMinersHymns The Miners’ Hymns is a film that commemorates the labour, endurance, vibrant community and rich culture of mining communities from the Durham Coalfield. Created by American filmmaker Bill Morrison and Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, the film was made using over 100 years of archive footage filmed in the area. Jóhannsson’s score for the film is influenced by the area’s brass music heritage and will be performed by the celebrated Iskra String Quartet and an 18-piece brass ensemble including players from the NASUWT Riverside Band. The film has been performed around the world, to rave reviews, however this one-off performance will bring the film back to its routes in East Durham and has been programmed to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the beginning of the 1984-5 Miners’ Strike. Filmed and edited by Chris Greenwood of Kliq Creative Media

                      2012 HD video/stereo sound/variable dimensions Full RT: 18:32 This work is also exhibited as a dual channel installation Every year, forty-three million tons of coal is taken from West Virginia through Mountaintop Removal mining. Most of us outside of West Virginia probably imagine this is done by miners working deep underground at tasks they have done for generations, however, since the Eighties, coal companies have used far fewer miners and far more explosives to blast through the top of mountains to their coal seams within. In this world, the immediately recognizable rolling tips of the Appalachian Range are called “overburden”. The overburden is dumped into the valley streams that abound in the American rain forest. The results have been profound and irreversible to the topography and eco-systems of Appalachia. For the pro-coal West Virginians, the flat industrial use land left behind is perfect for development of commercial ventures. They would also argue that the areas most affected are sparsely populated and grateful to have any work. Environmentalists and locals opponents argue that even sparsely populated places are nevertheless populated with living people, some who have lived in harmony with the land since the original pioneers came to America. Currently, because of Mountaintop Removal, many families have been forced from their land by dust, poisoned ground water and encroaching noise. Cancer is ubiquitous. Their elected representatives on the state and federal level are heavily lobbied and their connection to the wooded hills has been permanently broken by the massive land holdings ceded to coal companies and their policy of prohibiting trespassing on these lands. Opponents also argue that if this can be done to them, in a democracy, in America today, then it can be done to any disenfranchised community. Overburden is comprised of footage of active and abandoned mines juxtaposed with video portraits of activists, local residents, and miners. The video images reflect the conflicting realities of life in West Virginia: the lushness of the landscape and the desolation of the mines. The work is documentary in style but contains no commentary or interviews. My goal with this work is to create a durational work of open narrative that presents no single agenda other than exposing the complex issues surrounding energy production in the United States. All politics in this country right now are so polarized that it has become difficult to treat each issue at hand as specific to a specific place and time and affecting specific people. Without these specifics, it is impossible to feel the permanence in our decisions. In Overburden I would like to create a space where the viewer can simply look at and take in the human and natural elements of this one issue. Through extended video portraits viewers can reflect on the people and through landscape portraits viewers are given the natural, eternal environment around them. This is not a case where some people are evil and others are good, but where everyone has specific influences informing them, specific concerns of their own, and specific ways of being a citizen in today’s world.
