Ecologies of Perception: Film Screening of Chloe Charlton's "Tide X" (2022) and "Memories of the Shoreline, 1-4" (2021

Chloe Charlton, faciliated by Jess Holdengarde

See Facebook event

oin us for a screening of works by the Glasgow based moving image artist Chloe Charlton. The evening will investigate methods of image making of and with coastal landscapes, exploring wider questions of our relationship to the natural world. 

As part of Ecologies of Perception, artist-in-residence Jess Holdengarde has invited Chloe Charlton to screen two works. Both artists share a research interest and processes that explore sustainable and alternative methods of lens-based making, considering what it means to explore sustainable art making in the age of the Anthropocene.




Tide X (in-progress)

Scotland, 2022, 3' 


Filmed across multiple coastal locations and developed using organic matter from the site, Tide X (in-progress) investigates nonhuman self-portrait making and eco-processing image production. 


These excerpts are the beginning of an experiment in mapping the transitional space of the ever-swelling tide in a time of rapid instability. Tide X (in-progress) exists as a collection of inquiries in image making with the landscape and should not be viewed as a completed work.

Memories of the Shoreline, 1-4

Scotland, 2021, 4’41 

Four films transverse the coastline, offering mini studies of marine and flora life, whose images are composed frame-by-frame in the camera whilst filming.

The individual titles of the films are:

restless quarrels between closest companions

the mutterings of maritime lichen

chlorophyll lessons on rays and rhythm

Chloe Charlton is a moving image artist and film programmer living and working in Glasgow. Her works have screened at Alchemy Film & Arts Festival (2022), Transmission Gallery (2021) and Oberwelt Gallery (2021) in Stuttgart. 

Through montage and image witnessing, Charlton's work addresses the materiality of the geological world transmitted from the camera’s animating eye. Emerging from an ecological stance, she is directed by the sensual entanglements of the lived experience.

This event is part of the Ecologies of Perception project, which is a period of research and exchange exploring collaborative methods of lens-based making that are rooted in developing sustainable practices, culminating in a series of public workshops and events at Ilali Collective in Berlin. The project is part of Jess Holdengarde’s artist-in-residence with Ilali Collective where she has been developing her research interest in ecology, the human relationship to the environment and human/non-human interdependency. Supported by Creative Scotland and Ilali Collective. 

Jess Holdengarde (b.1991) is a South African artist based in Glasgow, Scotland who works predominantly in photography, film and auto fictional narrative. Concerned with our entangled relationship to the natural environment and themes of precarity and impermanence, Jess’s current practice considers the role of the artist in environmental ruin. Through plant-based chemistry and alternative methods of lens-based production she explores the natural environment as subject and resource, applying lenses of queer ecology and autoethnography. Jess holds an MFA from the Glasgow School of Art and is a founding member of Fix Photography Collective. This is her first residency in Berlin.
