Rhubaba is proud to present a screening of the work of artist duo Louise Hervé and Chloé Maillet in collaboration with Filmhouse. A presentation covering five years of their work together, the four films on show will lead us through different aspects of their practice which concerns science fiction, time travel, historical reconstruction and the progress of human potential. Moving between the roles of amateur geologists, tour guides and time travellers, Chloe and Louise lead the viewer through multifarious impossible possibilities, off-planet potentials, speculative methodologies and a science of imaginary solutions.
