Stones Against Diamonds

Elisabethenstrasse 14

Filmed in remote glacial ice caves in the South West of Iceland, the work has been inspired by a passage from a letter written by the Italian-born Brazilian modernist architect and designer, Lina Bo Bardi.

The artist, Isaac Julien, explores the architect’s love for semi-precious stones, believing them to be more beautiful than precious gemstones, whilst investigating the role of the subconscious in creative production.

The film explores the portrayal of some of the most beautiful objects as the least precious in a conventional sense.
