‘The Unfortunate Thing Between Us’ Premiering At Cork Film Festival
15 Nov 2012 : By Eva Hall
Phil Collins' ‘The Unfortunate Thing Between Us’ will premiere at the Cork Film Festival this weekend
The Irish premiere of renowned artist Phil Collins’ art installation ‘The Unfortunate Thing Between Us’ will be held at the Corona Cork Film Festival on November 16 and 17.

The screening will be in two parts: Part one will screen on Friday November 16 (from 7pm) and Part 2 will screen on Saturday November 17 (from 7pm). The screenings are approximately one hour long each and will run on a loop on the Factory Floor each evening from 7pm-12pm.

Originally presented in 2011 at the Hebbel am Ufer theatre in Berlin and on German public television, ‘This Unfortunate Thing Between Us’ consisted of two separate live broadcasts in which viewers were offered a choice of experiences rather than commodities at promotional prices.

Hosted by a crew of actors and porn workers, and featuring live music by Welsh musician Gruff Rhys and North Wales surf band Y Niwl, ‘This Unfortunate Thing Between Us’ follows the logic and grammar of the teleshopping channel, including pitches, sales and phone–ins.

The artwork brings together a live audience and home viewers in what may well prove to be a glimpse into the future of consumerism while providing an opportunity to face up to our contemporary desires and fears.

Admission to the Cork screening is free on both nights.

Mary McCarthy, director of the National Sculpture Factory said: “We are really looking forward to hosting the Irish premiere. We believe that [Collins’] work is unmissable and we hope that film audiences and filmmakers will come to the National Sculpture Factory to engage with Phil Collins’ work.”

Collins is based in Berlin and Cologne, and his works are held in public collections such as the Tate Gallery, London; Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York.

For all Corona Cork Film Festival events see www.corkfilmfest.org. The festivals runs from November 11-18.
