" For the past several decades environmentalists have foreseen an impending disaster of epic proportions if and when the planet becomes truly unable to sustain life. The artists in this exhibition are focused on healing our relationship with the living eco-system, recognizing that our very existence depends upon its survival. Their works attempt to bridge the gap between art and life by raising an appreciation of the natural world and by engaging in a collaborative or nurturing process with nature. This exhibition will focus on various spiritual or ethical traditions in relationship to our care of the planet, what Christianity terms “stewardship”, Tikkun Olam or “repair the world” in Judaism and in Buddhism, “compassion for all sentient beings”."

Panel discussion after screening at MoMA with curator Candida Paltiel and Catherine Van Campen.
Alchemy was screened in duo with Eternal Mash by Catherine van Campen (http://www.zuidenwind.nl/films/?taal=en&id=69). The films complemented eachother really well, both dealing with the poetry of life and the dying connection between nature and culture. New Yorkers make great and observant audiences with poignant questions. The response was constructive and delightful! Thanks to curator Sally Berger and Candida Paltiel for a great event.http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/films/660
