A Place We Call Home
Fiction expérimentale | dv | couleur | 8:0 | Suisse | 2006

A Place We Call Home nous entraîne au c?ur des relations intenses et particulières qui unissent deux personnages féminins. Le décor qui les entoure, à la fois urbain et sauvage, physiquement mangé par la végétation, absorbe et réfléchit leurs rituels.


Emmanuelle Antille est née en 1972 à Lausanne où elle demeure et travaille. Elle étudie à l'Ecole supérieure d'art visuel de Genève de 1991 à 1996, puis, de 1997 à 1998, à la Rijksacademie à Amsterdam. Elle use d'un langage parfois minimal parfois emphatique. Elle ausculte le dedans et le dehors et se voit de l'intérieur et de l'extérieur. Cette discipline de l'analyse systématique permet à tout un chacun de faire l'épreuve à son tour de son soi. Ses ?uvres ont été exposées notamment lors de festivals de vidéo comme ceux de Zurich, New York, Le Caire, Vilnius, Salamanque. En 2005 elle présentait « Rollow » au festival de Locarno et obtenait le prix Jeune créateur de la fondation vaudoise pour la promotion et la création artistique.

Even if we fall
Fiction | dv | couleur | 9:21 | Suisse | 2007

"Even if we fall" aborde la question des relations au sein d'une famille et des rôles joués par chacun de ses membres. Dans une maison silencieuse, un père, une mère et leur fille sont assis dans le salon, immobiles et silencieux. La mère prend soudainement sa fille par la main, et ils quittent tous les trois la pièce pour aller s'isoler dans la chambre des parents. Ils vont y exécuter un rituel unique : la fille a décidé d'offrir ses cheveux à sa mère. Le film montre la relation forte qui unit la fille à ses deux parents, et le lien très particulier qui existe entre les parents et pose une nouvelle fois la question de l'amour et du sacrifice au sein de la cellule familiale .

Barricata
Fiction expérimentale | dv | couleur | 19:52 | Suisse | 2007

Barricata est une vidéo en trois actes se jouant autour de quatre personnages féminins : la grand-mère, ses deux filles et sa petite fille. Axée sur le thème de l?abandon (de soi, des autres, de ses biens, de son corps ou de sa mémoire), cette vidéo présente les relations intimes entre les membres d?une même famille. Dans le premier acte, les quatre femmes, cloîtrées dans la cuisine, attendent et guettent l?arrivée de deux inconnus. Ceux-ci pénètrent dans la maison, l?inspectent, barricadent la pièce principale, puis repartent aussi soudainement qu?ils sont apparus. Dans le deuxième acte, les quatre femmes sortent de leur isolement et reprennent possession des lieux. Elles effectuent de petits rituels intimes et obsessionnels, ensemble ou séparément. Ces rituels leur permettent d?établir une tension avec leur environnement, de reprendre le contrôle ou de lâcher prise. Ainsi, ces femmes rejouent et réinventent les relations qui les unissent, jusqu?à l?hallucination parfois. Dans le troisième acte, les deux inconnus reviennent. Les femmes sont alors prêtes à les rencontrer, prêtes à leur livrer une part de leur histoire. Ils se retrouvent alors tous ensemble dans le salon barricadé.

Strings of Affection
Vidéo | dv | couleur | 9:41 | Suisse | 2009

"Strings of Affection" montre la relation particulière d?une femme à son espace domestique. Munie d?une pelote de ficelle, celle-ci tisse des fils dans tout son appartement. Ainsi se matérialise une étrange géométrie interne. L?appartement devient un espace mental, un espace miroir de la psyché du personnage. L?architecture apparaît comme un lieu de transformation s?ouvrant à la fois sur l?extérieur, tout en se refermant sur lui-même comme un piège. Prise dans cette toile, le corps de la femme se trouve contraint, tandis que son esprit s?échappe.

Beyond the white boundary of wired fences, birch trees and snow, men living in solitude as the world crumbles.

Lorenzo Apolli was born in a small city in the North of Italy, where he studied music and visual arts. After graduating in architecture he entered a documentary film-making institute, focussing on visions from the past and trying to explore the possible, mutual contributions among sound and image in the use of archival materials.

Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 3:0 | Royaume-Uni | 2012

DIE is a collaboration between Turner Prize winning artist Martin CREED who made the song "Die" and feature filmmaker Josh APPIGNANESI who created a response to the song. The film brings into play multiple notions of being exposed and yet remaining mysterious; rendered utterly naked under the spotlight with reference to torture imagery and Abu Ghraib, and yet withholding the mystery of the interior, with reference to papparazzi photos of celebrities holding up their hands. The result is strangely joyous. In terms of the ongoing collaboration between the artists, the piece crosses over between experimental film and music video and in so doing makes reference to Creed`s own previous video work in this vein, as well as to Appignanesi`s feature film work such as Song Of Songs (2005.)

Josh APPIGNANESI is a writer/director based in London. He directed the feature films The Infidel and Song Of Songs. Working across genres, he has also made short films, video art, music videos, documentaries, commercials and artworks, working with cast such as John Malkovich, Richard Schiff, David Tennant, Omid Djalili, and Tom Hiddleston. He teaches internationally. www.joshappignanesi.com Martin CREED is a renowned British artist and musician working internationally. He won the Turner Prize in 2001. www.martincreed.com

Birds
Film expérimental | super8 | couleur | 6:31 | Italie | Royaume-Uni | 2012

The film shot on Super 8 was filmed at the Zoology museum in Bologna. The museum was founded in 1860 part of the University of Bologna and is the largest and most significant in Italy. Rows and rows of cabinets filled with strangely shaped animals. It traces its roots all the way back to the very first cabinet of curiosity and the collection of Ulisse Aldrovandi, who allegedly coined the word Geology and is undisputedly one of the fathers of natural history. The film follows Arancio?s fascination with the human? s preoccupation to bring order to the world around us and the aesthetics related to the systems of classification used for this purpose. With this work the artist presents us with a subjective vision of the ornithological collection created by Zafagnini-Bertocchi in the first half of the 20th Century. Through the juxtaposition of deep gravitational rumbling sounds by LA cosmic cult music project Expo 70 and Arancio? s precise editing, still close ups and slow camera panning, the film exposes the sinister and uncanny nature of the displays, resulting in an ambiguous temporality, a visionary experience that transcends and transforms the original scientific illustrative purpose of the cabinets.

Born in Catania, Italy in 1974. Lives and works in London. He received his MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art. His artistic signature is photo-etching, but he works across a range of media such as sculpture, collage, animation and video. Arancio?s main interest lies in the potential of images. Departing from their literal meaning, he creates new juxtapositions that are both beautifully evocative and deeply disquieting. He looks to nature and science for his sources of inspiration, while unsettling any hint of the sublime by re-framing the images and the viewer?s experience. His constructed landscapes contain a sense of both the familiar and the unknown that enhances their symbolic readings and implications.

The film focuses on the New York's State Pavilion, an iconic building and one of the few surviving structures of the New York World`s Fair, held in Flashing Meadows in 1964. In Arancio's timeless abstract film, the camera slowly panning from the ground to the top end of the building, presents us a subjective reading of its architectural elements. Shot on Super 8 in one take, the film aims to juxtapose the construction's original utopian visionary aesthetics with Arancio's interest in apocalyptic representation and fascination for transient beauty.

EVERYTHING NEAR BECOMES FAR
Fiction | hdcam | | 11:0 | Colombie | 2012

Everything Near Becomes Far follows a day in the life of a couple living in a cabin nestled deep within the Andes mountain range in Colombia. They begin their day as usual, but something seems strange to the woman. A fearsome group of men awaits them. An atmosphere of dread develops gradually through the sounds and silences, a looming landscape and the threatening visions of wild animals observing the main characters from the distance. The film`s title is inspired by an observation the poet Borgues made on Goethe: ?Alles Nähe werde fern, everything near becomes far. Goethe was referring to the evening twilight. Everything near becomes far. It is true. At nightfall, the closest to us seems to move away from our eyes. So the visible world has moved away from my eye, perhaps forever. Goethe could be referring not only to twilight but to life. All things go off, leaving us. Old age is probably the supreme solitude -except that the supreme solitude is death?.?

Mauricio Arango was born in Colombia and lives and works in New York. He is an alumnus of the Independent Study Program at the Whitney Museum (New York, 2007), was a resident at the International Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg (2005), Austria and earned an MFA from the University of Minnesota (2003). He is a fellow at the MacDowell Artist Colony, USA. His films and works have been shown in multiple festivals and screened in more than twenty countries including New Directors/New Films at the Lincoln Film Society and The Museum of Modern Art in New York, Kino Der Kunst in Münich, VideoBrasil in Sao Paulo, IndieLisboa in Portugal. He has received support from the Foundation for Contemporary Art, New York; Rooftop Films, New York; and The Bush Foundation for the Arts, USA, among others.

Hereditas
Vidéo expérimentale | dv | couleur | 12:0 | Portugal | 2006

Hereditas, this piece confronts us with a paradox. The action is intriguing, and the location suggests something strange, yet magical. A child comes out of the forest?s depths and, with guileless steps, leads us into a dilapidated sanatorium?s long, empty corridors, in a timeless, lonely, sometimes spectral itinerary. The paradox lies in the simple, straightforward way the mountain?s findings are handled. It represents an encounter with something essential, thought hidden, and which may reveal itself with a surprising cruelty, harsher than death itself. Hereditas it is a work on childhood, loneliness, pain, love, death and the desire for knowing and understanding the great enigmas and interrogations of our human, all too human condition.

So Happy
0 | 0 | | 60:0 | Belgique | 2007

Une sélection de joyeux actes de rébellion tirés du catalogue de distribution d?Argos par Anke Buxmann et Maria Palacios Cruz. Lorsqu?on leur a demandé d?élaborer un programme de projection à l?occasion des premières Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin à se tenir à Madrid, au Circulo de Bellas Artes, Argos a décidé d?emprunter de titre du film de Joëlle de la Casinière de 1973, ?So Happy? dans lequel de la Casinière se promène pieds nus dans un environnement métropolitain abandonné et ravagé pour promouvoir son livre Absolument nécessaire dans les rues de New York. Rien n?est vrai, tout s?en va. Sa joie, sa liberté et son engagement social se retrouvent dans les trois vidéos qu?Argos présentera à Madrid. Les ?uvres qui ont été sélectionnées, de Charley Case, Sarah Vanagt et Joëlle de la Casinière elle-même, sont toutes trois de joyeux actes de rébellion ayant la rue comme arrière-plan commun. Les vidéos de ce programme s?avèrent d?une grande sensibilité en ce qui concerne le débat politique et social et elles militent pour la liberté d?expression et de mouvement d?une manière quelque peu naïve mais tout à fait joyeuse.


Argos (www.argosarts.org) est un centre pour l?art et les media basé à Bruxelles fondé en 1989. Au fil des ans, l?organisation s?est développée, au départ elle distribuait des vidéos et des films d?artistes puis elle s?est transformée en centre artistique avec des fonctions plus variées comme l?organisation d?expositions, de projections et d?événements, la production, le conservation et la préservation, la publication et le développement d?une médiathèque publique. En tant que centre interdisciplinaire pour l?art et les media audiovisuels, le but d?Argos est de créer une plateforme de production, de présentation, de distribution et de préservation de l?art audiovisuel et de l?art visuel contemporain belge et international, et de façon plus générale, toutes les formes d?expression artistiques qui ont un lien avec les media audiovisuels. Dans un paysage socioculturel qui évolue rapidement, Argos veut suivre les développements caractéristiques de l?art visuel et de l?art audiovisuel ? et de la culture visuelle et médiatique en tant que phénomène social dans son ensemble ? de manière critique, fournissant ainsi au public un cadre de référence et d?interprétation.

Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 5:16 | Colombie | Espagne | 2014

Cette vidéo a été tournée à Barcelone, près du rond point de Christophe Colomb, à coté du port. Pendant la nuit, Ivan Argote a "enflammé" à l`aide d`une bouteille d`absinthe et du feu une statue représentant un évêque indiquant la voie à un indigène. Cette statue, qui fait environ trois mètres d`hauteur, reste presque invisible parmi tous les monuments touristiques de Barcelone. Ivan Argote l`a découverte et, avec une intervention à forte puissance symbolique affirme son idée en désaccord à avec la vision européenne de l`histoire de la colonisation, qui voit le colon comme une sorte de héros.


Ivan Argote is Colombian artist who lives and works in Paris, Argote (31) deals with the way that man relates with the myriad changes that take place daily in the historical, economic, political and moral realms. His aim is to question the role of subjectivity in the revision of these concepts. Argote involves the body, and emotions in the construction of his thinking, and develops methods to generate reflexion about the way we construct certainty in relation with politics and history. By creating interventions and performances for the public space, which are sometimes further developed in the format of films and installations, the artist explores the city as a space of transformation. His works has been shown in several cities all around the world, including: Intersections, Cisneros Fountanals Foundation, Miami, 2015; Between the Pessimism of the Intellect and the Optimism of the Will, 5th Thessaloniki Biennale, Thessaloniki, 2015; Levitate, Museum Quartier, Vienna, 2015; L’éloge de l’heure, MUDAC, Lausanne, 2015; Reddish Blue (solo), DT Project, Brussels, 2014; Let’s write a history of hopes (solo), Galeria Vermelho, Sao Paulo, 2014; Strengthlessness(solo), Galerie Perrotin, Paris, 2014; La Estrategia (solo), Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2013); Un millon de amigos (solo), Galeria ADN, Barcelona (2013); Tectonic, Moving Museum, Dubai (2013); Los irrespetuosos, Museo Carrilo Gil, México DF (2013); 30th Sao Paulo Biennial, Sao Paulo (2012); Sin heroísmos, por favor (solo), CA2M, Madrid (2012); Girarse, Joan Miró Fundation, Barcelona (2012), among others.

Piedad faces the pass of time through the memories of the love story and execution of Milagros, her best friend.

Born in Valladolid in 1977, he studies Music and Fine Arts in Madrid. He works at the area of painting, installation, videoart and new technologies. From 2005, he co-manages Calipsofilms, a platform of audio-visual experimentation in several fields, such as videocreation, video clips, spots, documentaries, digital image, internet projects... He has taken part in individual and collective exhibitions, in different spaces, as Mirador (Madrid 2003), Photoespaña (Madrid 2005), Loop Festival (Barcelona 2007), Baluarte (Pamplona 2007). One of his most recent exhibitions is Líneas de mira (Lines of sight), at Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno (Gran Canaria 2007). Fernando Arrocha investigates the diving of contemporary man in the incessant flow of images of all kinds in which he is submited. His work is based on image recreation and intervention, specially propaganda content in historical films and documents. That process of recreation and intervention invites to think about manipulation, not only technical but also political and sociological, as well as about the psychological derivations of such procedures.

LABADI RISING
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 3:33 | Autriche | Ghana | 2014

Labadi Rising an urban sprawl, a gigantic, close-knit urban conglomerate along the westafrican coast from Abidjan to Lagos? The prediction of urbanist Mike Davis ( planet of slums) for 2050 could easily become reality long before. Labadi, located at the periphery of Accra where the city just merges with neigbouring portcity Tema is fitting exactly into this scheme. Thats where Daniel Aschwanden, Conny Zenk und Mat Hurtl meet the performancegroup GOLOCAL around visual artist Serge Attukwei Clottey, all of them inhabitants of Labadi. They demonstrate a new african self-consciousness through their way of trashy posing and improvise in public space along the beach. "The digital gaze belongs to all!" they seem to say, looking back through the displays of their gadgets, creating their own images. They stand for many young Africans facing the challenges of everyday life: poverty, violence , environmental pollution, rivalry, corruption and exploitation through global capital and own elites. The collage as a principle of life, seemingly omnipresent tool to appropriate symbolic and real territories serves as a matrix also for the videoshooting. The big themes are to be found in microspaces and depict themselves in surprizing transitions; locations, things, humans, actions, smells, realities, sounds, continuously measured, built-in, destroyed, rearranged and applied again, the construction of a future.

Daniel Aschwanden is experimenting with transdisciplinary methods in urban contexts departing from body related agendas applying a choreographic gaze to urban surroundings. His works articulate themselves in a wide range of formats reaching from interventions in public spaces to installations and performances in Gallery spaces and theatres and relating social with art agendas.

Oblique
Film expérimental | 35mm | couleur | 13:0 | Norvège | 2008

Les environnements urbains et leurs sites hétérogènes sont les lieux des explorations de Knut Asdam, qui s?intéresse au design social, aux modèles de comportement et aux modes de subjectivité en mettant l?accent tout particulièrement sur les troubles de l'identité et les pathologies spatiales. Asdam perçoit la ville comme une machine à désir, sa géographie comme un système de désir et son architecture comme un générateur pour pratiques désirantes. « Oblique », dont la première a eu lieu à Manifesta 7, est un récit hybride cinématographique et architectural, qui révèle des espaces publics ou semi-publics à l?intérieur de la ville. L'artiste invite le spectateur à un voyage à travers une « ville » en mouvement, construite à partir de villes et de régions de divers paysages politiques, économiques, culturels et sociaux. Asdam parle de lieux intensément chargés au niveau psychologique : des banlieues nouvellement construites en périphérie, des chantiers de construction, des immeubles institutionnels, des bureaux, des lieux de transition, entre construction et effondrement, marqués par les processus presque contradictoires de progrès économique et de développement des bidonvilles. Cependant, en même temps, il construit un espace critique objectif sur l?urgence politique.


Knut Åsdam est né en 1968 à Trondheim (Norvège) et vit actuellement à Oslo (Norvège). Il est actif sur la scène internationale depuis plus de dix ans, avec ses expositions, ses publications et ses émissions. Il a largement exposé à la Tate (Grande-Bretagne), à la Biennale de Venise (Italie), à la Kunsthalle de Berne (Suisse), à la Biennale d'Istanbul (Turquie), au Museum of Contemporary Art, au Moderna Museet, au PS1, et au Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (France), entre autres. Des articles de fond sur son ?uvre ont été publiés dans la revue « Artforum », « Gray Room », « Le Monde Diplomatique », « Untitled Magazine », notamment. D?une manière très visuelle et spatiale, Åsdam se sert du son, du film, de la vidéo, de la photographie et de l?architecture pour travailler avec la politique de l'espace et les limites de la subjectivité. Souvent, ces préoccupations sont liées au thème du désaccord, ainsi qu?à l'analyse de l'espace en termes de désir, d'usage et d?histoire. Il existe quatre catégories essentielles dans l??uvre d?Åsdam : le « Discours », la « Vie », la « Sexualité » et la « Lutte ».

Abyss
Fiction expérimentale | 35mm | couleur | 43:0 | Norvège | Myanmar | 2010

Abyss portrays an urban reality characterised by migration and change ? the movement of people, the movement of money and power, and the drift of the imagination. Filmed in East London, including the 2012 Olympic construction site the film is set within spaces of the modern city ? markets, gyms, parking lots, parks, squares, streets and stores. The main character, O, negotiates her material world but the city?s economical, political and social demands appear to have been absorbed into her movements, speech and psychology. The film drifts between a material world and its psychological effects.

Knut Åsdam was born in Trondheim (1968). He currently lives and works in Oslo. Åsdam established his international work as an artist through the New York context where he lived from 94-04 and attended the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, NYC (94-95). Previously he studied at the Jan van Eyck Akademie (92-94), Goldsmiths College, London (89-92) and Wimbledon School of Art, London (88-89) after preparatory studies in Psychology, Philosophy and Linguistics at the University of Oslo and Maui Community College, University of Hawaii (86-89). Though expressed in very diverse forms, the main interest of Åsdam?s work remains a consistent concern for the manner in which each individual constructs and negotiates his or her identity in relation to the change and organizations of contemporary society. This sensitivity to the instability of the self often expands on the merits of queer theory and feminism, as well as psychology of language and (lacanian) psychoanalysis. His investigation of the relationship between language, the body and the usage and perception of public urban spaces, includes a look at structures of political power and authority, and has taken the diverse form of audio, film, video, photography and installation. The themes in Åsdam?s work can be seen through four categories; ?Speech?, ?Living?, ?Sexualities? and ?Struggle?. These concerns are often related to themes of deviation or crisis and to analysis of space in terms of desire, usage and history. The idiosyncracy of Åsdam?s approach to the cinematic field is created by transposing the resources of the discussions of place and subjectivity and the keen attention to the politics of language from the Fine Arts context into film. Åsdam has been active with exhibitions, publications and broadcast internationally for the last 15 years at i.e. Tate Britain and Tate Modern, London; Venice Biennial; Künsthalle Bern; Istanbul Biennial; Bergen Kunsthall; MACRO, Rome; The Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo; Manifesta7; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; P.S.1 MOMA, NYC; FRAC Bourgogne, Dijon and Musee d?Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, among others.

Tripoli
Fiction expérimentale | 0 | couleur | 24:0 | Norvège | 2010

A Tripoli, ville du nord du Liban, se trouve ce qui reste de l?un des projets architecturaux les plus distinctifs au monde : un centre international d?exposition, conçu par l?architecte brésilien Oscar Niemeyer en 1966, et laissé à l?abandon depuis le déclenchement de la guerre civile en 1975. Dans une forme qui oscille entre le documentaire d?architecture et une représentation théâtrale incohérente, le film décrit tout à la fois le lieu et, comme un sous entendu, l?histoire violente qui a laissé ce site dans un état d?inachèvement et de délabrement. Les vestiges modernistes apparaissent déboîtés, et fonctionnent comme un monument à une époque optimiste au Moyen Orient, qui semble maintenant bien distante.


Knust Åsdam est né à Trodheim en 1968. Il vit et travaille actuellement à Oslo. Knut Åsdam s?est imposé comme artiste international à New York, où il a vécu de 1994 à 2004. Il a suivi dans cette ville le Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, NYC (94-95). Auparavant, il a étudié aux Pays-Bas, à la Jan van Eyck Akademie (92-94), au Goldsmiths College de Londres (89-92) et à la Wimbledon School of Art, Londres (88-89). Il a par ailleurs étudié la psychologie, la philosophie et la linguistique à l?université d?Oslo et au Maui Community College de l?université de Hawaii (86-89). Exprimée sous de multiples formes dans son travail, l?attention de Knut Åsdam est constamment tendue par la manière dont chaque individu construit et négocie son identité, en relation avec l?organisation et les modifications de la société contemporaine. Cette sensibilité à l?instabilité du soi est nourrie des valeurs portées par les théories queer et féministes, aussi bien que de la psychologie du langage et la psychanalyse lacanienne. La recherche de l?artiste sur les relations qu?entretiennent le langage, le corps, la perception des espaces publics urbains et l?usage qui en est fait, inclut un examen des structures du pouvoir et de l?autorité, et prend des formes diverses : audio, film, vidéo, photographie et installation. Les thèmes du travail de Knut Åsdam peuvent être vus au travers de quatre catégories : le discours, la vie, les sexualités et la lutte. Ces préoccupations sont souvent reliées aux thèmes de la déviance, de la crise, et à l?analyse de l?espace, en termes de désir, d?usages et d?histoire. Le caractère idiosyncratique de l?approche de Knut Åsdam du champ du cinéma est créé par la transposition des ressources de l?analyse des lieux et de la subjectivité, par une attention soutenue au caractère politique du langage, le déplaçant du contexte des beaux arts vers le champ du film. Ces dernières années, le travail de Knut Åsdam a été exposé, publié, et diffusé, notamment à la Tate Britain et à la Tate Modern, Londres; à la Biennale de Venise; à la Künsthalle de Berne; à la biennale d?Istanbul; au Kunsthall de Bergen; au MACRO, Rome; à l?Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo; à la Manifesta7; au Moderna Museet, Stockholm; au P.S.1 MOMA, NYC; au FRAC Bourgogne, Dijon et au Musée d?Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.

EGRESS
Fiction expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 41:0 | Norvège | 2013

Egress is a narrative set in a gas station in the edgelands of Oslo. The main characters work at the bottom of the oil company hierarchy and are engulfed in the everyday and the dark economic and psychological shadows of their society. Egress is the story of a young woman who deals with her every day work situation with independence and stubbornness in her work and life in the periphery of the city. The film shows relationships between control and independence, about labour, class and work, but it is also a poetic film about a socially insecure edgeland of the city—and about a psychological flipside or cost of the everyday, somewhere near the bottom of the huge economic ladder of the oil industry which secures Norway's stability. Egress' world is a world of social instability and economic insecurity as part of a society undergoing major changes. Egress is shot entirely on "location" in Oslo's Groruddalen, mainly between an apartment complex and a gas station. The film is an experimental fiction built up from documentary material which mixes the environment- and character-based to talk about contemporary society.

Knut Åsdam (1968) is a filmmaker, installation artist and photographer. Åsdam established his international work through the art scene in New York after finishing studies at Wimbledon School of Art (London, 88-89), Goldsmiths College (London, 89-92), Jan van Eyck Akademie (Maastricht, 92-94) and at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program (NYC 94-95). Expressed in diverse forms, the main interest of Åsdam’s work remains a concern for contemporary society and its psychological and material effects, and the toll of every day life; e.g. how individuals constructs and negotiates his or her identity in reaction to the rules and organizations of contemporary society. Åsdam investigates the usage and perception of public urban spaces, including their structures of political power and authority. The themes in Åsdam’s work can be thought of relating to four essential categories; ‘Speech’, ‘Living’, ‘Sexualities’ and ‘Struggle’. These concerns often relate to themes of dissidence and to analysis of space in terms of desire, usage and history. The idiosyncrasy of Åsdam’s approach to the cinematic field is created by transposing the resources of spatial and place-oriented discourses from the Fine Arts context into film. Furthermore, he uses a plotless narrative and an oscillation between documentary and fictional narrative elements in the films. Åsdam´s work has been shown widely at i.e. Tate Modern; Bergen Kunsthall; Tate Britain; Boijmans van Beuningen Museum, Rotterdam; Venice Biennial; Kunsthalle Bern; Istanbul Biennial; FRAC Bourgogne; MACRO, Rome; Museum of Contemporary Art, Oslo; Manifesta7; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; P.S.1 MOMA, NYC: and Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, among others.

Finally
Vidéo expérimentale | dv | couleur | 18:0 | Norvège | France | 2007

"Finally" traite d'histoire et de violence et explore les limites entre le film narratif et l'histoire. Le film a été filmé dans un contexte historique à Salzbourg en Autriche. Dans "Finally", les trois personnages principaux se battent violemment et répétitivement sans que de causes ne soient données dans la narration. Cette violence semble d'ailleurs être une réaction envers, ou bien une demande de, un lieu qui est aussi bien historique que contemporain. Le film fonctionne plus comme un jeu entre le placement architectural et spatial et le langage utilisé par les protagonistes, plutôt qu'une histoire linéaire.


Knut Åsdam vit et travaille entre New York, Paris et Berlin. Depuis 10 ans, ses oeuvres sont exposées, projetées et diffusées dans le monde entier. Il a notamment exposé à la Tate Britain, à la Biennale de Venise, au Museum of Contemporary Art, au Moderna Museet, au PS1 et au Musée d?Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.

Le court-métrage "Revolution after Revolution" a été tourné dans trois villes roumaines (Sibiu, Pitesti, Bucarest). Il montre comment les stratégies des médias sont assimilées et intégrées dans la société et font ainsi partie de la vie de tous les jours. L'architecture moderne des années 1960 est le scénario dans lequel les habitants agissent en tant qu'acteurs. Les idéologies d'une célébration utopique donnent un contenu aux formes, qui représentent la vie moderne et sont l'allégorie de la "révolution".

Grandeur et décadence d?un petit commerce de cinéma. Cinema Mundial 1957-2007 is a 21-minute short film that reflects the life of the celluloid via a digital camera and reveals the real essence of cinema. Cinema Mundial 1957-2007 shows the magnanimity and decadence of a small commercial movie theater in Sant Celoni, a village located in the province of Barcelona. In the projection room, Félix, the projectionist, and Juan, his assistant, carry out their work using traditional methods. They keep on working even though they know that it might be their last showing due to the warnings on the imminent closing of the movie theater. Some months later, we can still appreciate the demolition of this movie theater and its marks recall a history and a memory of cinema.

Carles Asensio Monrabà, was born on September 30th 1979 in Sant Celoni, a village in the province of Barcelona His studies and audiovisual works were carried out between Barcelona and Madrid. In Barcelona, he studied Direction in the Centre d?Estudis Cinematogràfics de Catalunya (CECC); after that, he got a grant by the Escuela de Cinematografía y Audiovisuales (ECAM) to study in Madrid. Among his fiction short films stands out Revival (finalist in the Fifth Edition of Notodofilmfest), Kiss me, fool or For Ever Lola (a false documentary that pays tribute to Basilio Martín Patino.) Other audiovisual works fall within the category of experimental documentaries, such as the short film Cinema Mundial 1957-2007 or 01 one, a feature film project inspired in Abbas Kiarostami´s film-making experience with his film Five. His artistic interests led him to study at the Col·legi de Teatre in Barcelona; in connection with theater, he establishes the group called Irma Vep in 2007, together with the actress Clara Macías Carcedo, who also takes an active part in his audiovisual works. In 2008 he takes the Documentary Master?s Program at Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona. The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York city has just acquired Cinema Mundial 1957-2007 for its Permanent Collection. This short film was selected by New Directors/New, organized by MoMA and the Film Society of Lincoln Center to be screened in the last edition which took place in April 2008. As a result of his participation in this Film Festival, the Museum showed its interest in acquiring a copy of his work for its Permanent Collection, where we can find some of the most representative works from the world history of film. MoMA was the first museum that acquired films as works of art for debating and broadcasting purposes. In its collection we can find films by Charles Chaplin, Eisenstein, F.W. Murnau, John Ford, Carl T. Dreyer, Fritz Lang, Orson Welles, Roberto Rossellini, Federico Fellini, Yasujiro Ozu, Jean-Luc Godard, Andy Warhol, Stanley Kubrick, Francis F. Coppolla, Lars von Trier, Jia ZhangKe, David Lynch or Jim Jarmusch. Up until now, the only Spanish film-makers included in this collection were Luis Buñuel: El perro andaluz, La Edad de Oro, Los Olvidados, Belle de jour and El discreto encanto de la burguesía and Pere Portabella: Vampir cuadecuc and El silencio antes de Bach. In March 2009, his short movie was selected to be screened at the International Film Festival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Canary Islands) as part of the Cinema Cycle DGeneraciones II. Presently, Carles Asensio is writing a script for a fiction feature film and is working in the creation of video art works based on 20th Century Painters such as Francis Bacon and screen-art.
