Weit und breit
Création sonore | 0 | | 16:21 | Allemagne | 2006

weit und breit (2006) Musique concrète pour saxophone alto, accordéon et harpe Cette pièce musicale provient exclusivement de "résidus" non utilisés de différentes musiques pour pièces radiophoniques. Dans les enregistrements pour les différentes productions, il y avait toujours des angles sonores extrêmes où le micro était par exemple adapté au corps d'un instrument, et dans lesquels des microphones de contact ou à tête artificielle pouvaient être utilisés, ou encore des Jacklin ou des microphones de tête originaux. Souvent, des expérimentations qui utilisaient abondamment des méthodes inhabituelles de création sonore ont été menées, sous la direction du compositeur. Ces produits sonores sont, en partie, presque uniquement du bruit, mais comme ils proviennent d'instruments de musique traditionnels, ils ont toujours en eux un "accord intérieur". Même dans des sons très percutants et très courts, ou dans un son presque blanc, il oscille toujours une sorte d'ambiance musicale qui permet, après l'avoir travaillée par ordinateur, d'obtenir une composition presque tonale. Il en résulte une sorte de "composition tonale de bruits". Les sons sont étudiés en 5 mouvements en partant d'une perspective purement musicale, et différentes possibilités de bruit-son harmonisé sont explorées, du son purement instrumental au bruit, en partant aussi des transitions et des transformations. Dans les espaces intermédiaires naissent toujours des petits fragments narratifs.


Thomas Gerwin Compositeur de formation classique et artiste dans le domaine du son. Il est venu très tôt à la musique électroacoustique et travaille en outre depuis 1990 de façon intensive dans le domaine de la composition d'"environnement sonore" et dans l'art radiophonique. Actuellement il compose principalement pour des concerts et des performances dans son studio à Berlin, et crée des installations sonores et vidéo. Il intègre toujours les nouveaux médias, le théâtre, la danse, le cinéma et la sculpture comme moyens d'expression dans son espace artistique. Il a reçu différents prix internationaux et bourses, ses oeuvres font l'objet d'expositions et de présentations dans le monde entier. Gerwin dirige le ?Berliner Lautsprecher-Orchester? et supervise la série de concerts ?KlangWelten? ainsi que les festivals ?klanglaborX? (Berlin) et ?KLAK!? (Kassel)

L'Arrêt
Doc. expérimental | hdv | noir et blanc | 15:26 | Irlande | France | 2012

L?arrêt est un documentaire expérimental sur le suspense et le (dés)équilibre, l?indécision et la chorégraphie de la peur. Tourné dans les Calanques à Marseille avec un groupe de jeunes adultes de La Bricarde, une cité d?habitat social des quartiers nords de la ville réputés sensibles, L?arrêt explore l?incertitude à laquelle nous sommes tous confrontés dans ce no-man?s-land que constitue la période entre l?enfance et l?âge adulte. L?arrêt montre cinq jeunes adultes s?élançant du haut de falaises vertigineuses dans la mer méditerranée vingt mètres en dessous d?eux. Mais le spectacle n?est pas le scénario ou le drame de la chute. Ce sont les moments avant qui sont célébrés : ce mélange de bravoure et de gêne, ce passage entre un regard dur et un sourire un peu trop décontracté, ces vagues de tension et de doute et le combat mené pour les dépasser qui unifie leurs corps en un étrange et beau langage de crainte partagé. Au centre social, le responsable du service jeunesse nous a dit : ?A la Bricarde, les jeunes ont du mal à se projeter?? mais ici au moins, lentement, difficilement mais joyeusement, ils le font.


gethan&myles are a creative partnership lving and working in Marseille since 2011. As an artistic double-act, collaboration is at the heart of everything they do: not only with each other, but also with the spaces in which they work and the people who occupy them. Giving a voice to communities who are misunderstood or ignored, and expressing the richness of their experience underpins many of gethan&myles? projects. Whether working in film, photography, text, sculpture or performance, ?the sublime? is of little interest to them - what inspires them is the real world and the human beings they share it with.

ANOTHER LAND
Vidéo | hdv | couleur et n&b | 3:0 | Inde | 2015

Another Land is an optical collage of memories, snatches of conversation, verses of a poem, creating a dreamlike journey. This work has been built around found materials like photographs, slides, camera footage, scribbles and drawings. The sum of this memorabilia is collected to evoke an intensely personal trancelike journey, which transports you through various vistas. I have interpreted the material to create almost a mythical space, an imaginary fable, where all that is recognizable assumes another quality altogether. This is my re-imagining of nostalgia and memory and what it means to individuals. Just as we augment and embellish memory with time; so too, this work takes fragments of remembrance and imparts another quality to them. So that, what is remembered changes and recreates new stories, new trajectories in a way that creates a fantasy - a mythopoeic fable.

Sukanya Ghosh is an artist, animation filmmaker and designer. She is an independent practitioner and enjoys working with popular imagery, poetry and the moving image. Born in Calcutta, she has a BFA in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S. University of Baroda and an AEPEP in Animation Film Design from the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad. She has been the recipient of the Charles Wallace India Trust Award, the Sarai Independent Fellowship, commissions from the Royal Commonwealth Society and Motiroti, UK. She has been Artist-in-Residence at Khoj, New Delhi; Spike Island, Bristol; and AIR Vallauris, France. Her works have been part of several shows both nationally and internationally. She managed arts programming at the Seagull Arts and Media Resource Centre, Calcutta for several years and has also been involved in various design projects including publicity design for film, book, exhibition and theatre design over the years.

Il corpo nero
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 5:37 | Italie | 0 | 2018

In physics, a "black body" is an idealized physical body that absorbs all incident electromagnetic radiation, regardless of frequency or angle of incidence. An approximate depiction of a black body is a hole in the wall of a large cavity. Any light entering the hole is reflected indefinitely or absorbed inside and is unlikely to re-emerge, making the hole a nearly perfect absorber. The film has been edited as a palindrome, and it is composed of fragments from a conversation with particle physicist Alessio Del Dotto. The scientist outlines the concept of "black body" by narrating anecdotes about it: ultraviolet catastrophes, the first moments of the universe, Borges' Aleph and the double meaning of the Italian word "spettro".

Riccardo Giacconi has studied fine arts at the University IUAV of Venezia. His work has been exhibited in various institutions, such as ar/ge kunst (Bolzano), MAC (Belfast), WUK Kunsthalle Exnergasse (Vienna), FRAC Champagne-Ardenne (Reims), tranzitdisplay (Prague), MAXXI (Rome), Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo (Turin) and at the 6. Moscow International Biennale for Young Art.

Due (Two)
Doc. expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 16:55 | Italie | France | 2017

"Due" was shot in Milano 2, a residential neighbourhood located just outside Milano. Built as a utopian city between 1970 and 1979, Milano 2 was Silvio Berlusconi`s first ambitious project. It was in Milano 2 that TeleMilano, the first private Italian TV channel, started to broadcast, which made the area the bridgehead of the media and, later, political empire of Berlusconi. Milano 2, which nowadays may seem an ordinary suburban area, has functioned as a laboratory for a form-of-life which, in the decades of the Berlusconismo’s, spread nationally and left a long-lasting mark on Italian culture. The film includes an interview with Enrico Hoffer, the architect that designed the landscaping of the neighbourhood, as well as fragments from a 1974 publicity brochure advertising the real estate project.

The Sailor
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 8:0 | Italie | Pays-Bas | 2017

A voice-over tells the story of a sailor that dreams of a homeland he has never had; day after day the sailor constructs his new native land shaping it to his imagination. Inspired by Fernado Pessoa`s static drama "The Mariner" the video deals with the notion of what each of us addresses as home and foreign and at the same time with issues related to language and its translation. Playing with the perception of who is watching, confusing it and mixing it, whilst images of landscapes trick the eyes of the viewer creating shadow play illusions, the female voice speaks Na`vi, an invented language artificially created upon commission for the movie Avatar. Like a second voice, the subtitles suggest a relation established among words, images and imagination.

Giovanni Giaretta (Padua 1983) currently lives and works in Amsterdam. After graduating in Design and Production of Visual Arts at the University IUAV of Venice, he took part in a number of residency programs including: Dena Foundation for Contemporary Art in Paris in 2010; and most recently De Ateliers in Amsterdam. Giaretta’s work has been featured in exhibitions in Italy and abroad at diverse institutions and galleries such as: La Criée (Rennes, FR); Tegenboschvanvreden, (Amsterdam, NL); Foundation Botin (Santander, SP); Musée Départemental d’Art Contemporain de Rochechouart, (Rochechouart, FR); Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, (Torino, IT); and Motive Gallery (Amsterdam, NL). His films have been shown at the International Film Festival of Rotterdam (Rotterdam, NL) and the T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival (Wroclaw, PL), among other festivals and screenings. His actual research is focusing on the relationship between perception and alteration during the night time. For the last year, to carry on such research Giaretta has been working as night porter in an hotel in Amsterdam. From 2015, he is also working as co-teacher at the Salzburg International Summer Academy.

Travel Stop
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 19:0 | USA | 2017

Shot at the World’s Largest Truckstop in Walcott, Iowa, the film contemplates the interiors of a Midwestern highway rest stop, creating an essayistic portrait of a familiar site of travel and transience. With fixed attention toward the ideological overtones pressed to the surface in the objects for sale, Travel Stop examines how identity is called upon, regressed, emptied, overburdened, or parceled when traversing the non-places along the US interstate. “ That the world of things can open itself to reveal a secret life ” indeed to reveal a set of actions and hence a narrativity and history outside the given field of perceptionis a constant daydream that the miniature presents. This is the daydream of the microscope: the daydream of life inside life, of significance multiplied infinitely within significance.

Mike Gibisser is a filmmaker and artist interested in navigating the indefinite lines between essay, narrative, experimental, and documentary work, often drawing together disparate subjects or time periods. In the past 10 years, he has completed two narrative features (Finally, Lillian and Dan and World of Facts), a feature film essay (The Day of Two Noons), as well as several experimental and non-fiction shorts. He has presented work at numerous galleries and festivals around the world, including the International Oberhausen Film Festival, the Harvard Film Archive, Tony Wight Gallery, Block Cinema, the AFI Film Festival, the Images Film Festival, the European Media Arts Festival, threewalls gallery, and the New York Film Festival. His work has been featured in Artforum, Variety, and Cinemascope, amongst other publications. He currently teaches at the University of Iowa and runs the Headroom Screening Series dedicated to bringing filmmakers to local audiences to present challenging and experimental new work.

The Neverending Story (Chapter one)
Fiction expérimentale | 16mm | noir et blanc | 5:33 | Espagne | 2011

Cette vidéo a été filmée à Talavera, une petite ville dans la région de «La Mancha» (Espagne). Tourné en 16mm et emprunter quelques plans sémantique et visuel de Chris Marker La Jetée (1962), le film atteint un point culminant en permanence, mais jamais d`une résolution, dans laquelle les endroits que je suis familier avec sont transformées en intemporel et irréel. Le film est conçu en tenant compte des codes visuels et linguistiques de 60 films de science fiction. Toutes les photos ont été prises en 2011 par des personnes réelles (amis, familiers, etc) et des lieux réels (tous à Talavera), sauf les cadres final de l`expérience de la NASA (en fonction de la confrontation même entre réalité et fiction). C`est le premier chapitre d`un film continu, sans fin. En fait, le deuxième chapitre est filmé à Coney Island (New York), avec les mêmes caractéristiques techniques (une Bolex 16 mm H16 REX-5 caméra et d`un vieux film des années soixante).

Gil & Moti / `Nasser` / 2008-2009 / 7`:08`` In 2008 the Israeli?Dutch artist duo Gil & Moti started their project Available for You. They offered their services free of charge to immigrants from Arab countries in Copenhagen and Rotterdam and documented their encounters in diary entries, photos and videos. Gil & Moti bridge the barriers of miscom-munication in an intelligent manner. At the same time, they raise themes from an artistic perspective that apply globally: themes such as sociability, integration and exclusion. On the border of the public and private domain and of the art institution and the street, they have created their project as a fascinating vision of an artistic and humanitarian practice in a changing world beset by conflict.

We Gil & Moti, are duo artists living and working together since 1994. Our work moves freely between life, the visual arts and performance. The decision to live life as a performance and to make art a way of living creates a tension, which motivates the work and is presented in the form of: installation, video, painting, writing and performance. With our work we engage in the appropriation of public space and its effect on human relationships. Our projects involve the rehabilitation of the network of associations in a given community. An analytic critique of the relationship of private life and public space constitutes an important facet of our practice. Jewish Israelis by birth, gay and immigrants in Holland we contribute with our work to the contemporary debates about being different and the rules of social coexistence. We express these concerns with vulnerable poetic narratives, suspended between reality and fantasy visualized in a range of images from mundane to highly theatrical.

Au cours d'une après-midi ensoleillée, négligeant la silhouette de Tel-Aviv qui se détache à l?horizon, un violoniste joue avec expression une composition hybride, reconstruite à partir d?hymnes tant israéliens que palestiniens. Les heures de dur travail, ainsi que de la douleur mentale, laissent leurs traces sur le cou du violoniste, comme le montre la toute dernière scène de la vidéo. Cette blessure est une métaphore de la longue et douloureuse lutte entre les deux peuples et les deux cultures. Prenant comme point de départ la nationalité des auteurs et la situation actuelle en Israël, des concepts tels que l'humanité, l'expiation et de pardon acquièrent une importance accrue, et ce sont précisément les thèmes récurrents de cette ?uvre en duo. Dans la vidéo, les artistes formulent le souhait utopique que les deux ennemis réussissent à vivre en paix côte à côte.


Gil Nader est né à Rishon LeZion (Israël), en 1968, Moti Porat à Ganey Yehuda (Israël) en 1971. Ils vivent et travaillent ensemble en duo depuis 1994, sous le nom de « Gil & Moti », et sont basés à Rotterdam (Pays-Bas) depuis 1998. Ils se sont tous deux diplômés de l'Académie Bezalel d'Art et de Design de Jérusalem (Israël) en 1997, puis ont poursuivi leurs études, en 1998-2000, au Master des Beaux-Arts de l'Institut Piet Zwart, de Rotterdam et à l'Université de Plymouth (Royaume-Uni). Parmi leurs récentes expositions individuelles, signalons notamment « Sleeping With the Enemy à Jack the Pelican Presents » à New York (USA) en 2005, « Love Grows Free » à la galerie Eric Dupont de Paris (France) en 2006, « Dating Gil & Moti » à la Mucsarnok Kunsthalle de Budapest (Hongrie) en 2006, et « Available for You » à la Kunsthallen Nikolaj de Copenhagen (Danemark) en 2008. Le gouvernement israélien et néerlandais ont soutenu financièrement leurs projets. Leurs ?uvres sont exposées dans des collections privées et publiques, telles que le Musée d?Art de Tel-Aviv (Israël), le Musée d?Art d?Haifa (Israël) ou le Mumok de Vienne (Autriche). En 2008, ils ont reçu une bourse de deux ans de la part de la Fondation Néerlandaise pour les Arts Visuels, le Design et l?Architecture.

The most physical jobs earn too little, we realized then, and that is why we tried to arrange a salary increase for Betty while confronting her boss.

From the moment we created the duo Gil & Moti, in 1998, we have explored the notion of individuality and questioned forms and norms of identity. Sharing is an ongoing experiment on a visual, mental and physical level, which includes: always dressing identically, never going apart, owning one wallet, one phone and one pair of keys. The denial of the boundaries between private and public, performance and social intervention is central in our work, which often starts small, close to ourselves and rooted in our personal life, but soon extends to a variety of important socio-political themes, such as discriminated minorities, racism, otherness and social and economical status. As artists, a gay couple, Jewish born (ex)Israelis and immigrants living in Europe, we contribute to the critical cultural discourse about human relationships, being different, and about sets of rules that are supposed to regulate social existence. Switching effortlessly between classical and contemporary artistic mediums of expression, we continuously challenge ourselves and our audience by introducing creative and refreshing perspectives. Gil & Moti are the winners of MK Award 2015. They have been showing internationally in museums and galleries.

This video rethought the role of public sculptural representations, worldwide. While often “decorative”, these sculptures are often simply objects in public spaces funded by local governments, manifesting their power in shaping both art in public realm and popular aesthetics, often giving a false perception of sculpture medium, and how it should or could be interpreted. This ongoing project was a series of video-recorded performative guerrilla actions, using sculptures located in public spaces, including the U.S., Korea, and Iran. Before performing with a given sculpture, the artist asked for advice from professional art conservators or other specialists in the field of restoration.

Wojciech Gilewicz (b. 1974) is a Polish-born New York-based interdisciplinary visual artist. The artist draws on experience in painting and video to investigate boundaries of art and space. In his recording of reality, Gilewicz uses the video camera, which can fluidly transform into a means of registering social relations, which take place “outside” his actions performed with or around his paintings or sculptural objects. Gilewicz’s art provokes reflection on the mechanisms which govern perception and its cultural conditioning. Video works by the artist were presented internationally in the framework of numerous screenings in art institutions and video festivals including Media Art Biennale WRO, Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid, CURRENTS: Santa Fe International New Media Festival, and Hors Pistes Japon. His awards include grants from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation and The Joan Mitchell Foundation, his residencies include Akiyoshidai International Art Village in Japan and Changdong Art Studio/National Museum of Contemporary in Seoul, Korea. The artist has been part for the last three years of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Workspace Program in New York, where he’s been working on his “New Paintings” series started back in 2006 inspired by NYC subway. (www.gilewicz.net) In 2017 Wojciech Gilewicz established Beach64retreat in the Rockaways, Queens, New York for creative individuals as the artist’s response to the rising precarity in arts&culture around the world. The retreat is free of charge.

When I was invited to China at the end of 2008, in my contract with Zendai MoMA in Shanghai, I was bounded to realize 6 to 8 oil paintings there. While painting, I am often using my video camera as well, which is kind of registering in a cold eye the process of the ?emergence? of my urban-based paintings. I did so also when working for the museum on this series of paintings. However, in this very project the camera is slightly drifting away from the actual paintings and is showing fragments of reality as if they were autonomous paintings themselves. The reality appears in this video quite neurotic and nervous as well as a bit hectic. It is mysterious, very much fragmented and somehow jagged. The paintings coming off the reality leave a strange tear to it or maybe rather quite a philosophic dilemma.

Wojciech Gilewicz (1974) Polish American painter, photographer, author of installations and videos. In his works, which usually combine all these disciplines, Gilewicz explores the phenomenon of illusion and the blurring of distinctions between reality and its artistic representation. He also shows how relative and changeable our perception of the surrounding world is. Gilewicz?s practice invites a reflexion on the mechanisms governing our perception and on the cultural determinants of the way we see things. www.gilewicz.net

Wojciech Gilewicz: In Practice, 2009 (video) A series of oil paintings were installed outside the SculptureCenter building. The surfaces and forms of the canvases were designed to make them appear completely invisible while they were on site. A video documentating the process of placing the works in their environment encouraged visitors to explore the periphery of the building. Using a map I prepared, visitors were invited to search for the hidden paintings in the surrounding city space. I was primarily interested in challenging visitors` perception of space, reality and their surroundings. (by Wojciech Gilewicz) -------------- fragment of InPractice review by Lori Cole (ArtForum, 02.15.2009) "(...)While artists such as Peter Simensky, Carey Ascenzo, and Amy Patton struggle to reinvent site specificity, Wojciech Gilewicz defies its logic entirely in his deadpan installations-painted imitations of everyday surfaces, intended to go unnoticed in public space. In the video documentation of his project, Gilewicz nonchalantly installs the work in broad daylight, thereby performing the slight visual shifts between the trash on the surface of a garbage can and its painted replica, between a construction panel and its crafted double, and drawing attention to the way art can undermine even its own subversive rhetoric to make site both more and less noticeable." http://www.sculpture-center.org/pressSpecific.htm?id=61697

This video rethought the role of public sculptural representations, worldwide. While often “decorative”, these sculptures are often simply objects in public spaces funded by local governments, manifesting their power in shaping both art in public realm and popular aesthetics, often giving a false perception of sculpture medium, and how it should or could be interpreted. This ongoing project was a series of video-recorded performative guerrilla actions, using sculptures located in public spaces, including the U.S., Korea, and Iran. Before performing with a given sculpture, the artist asked for advice from professional art conservators or other specialists in the field of restoration.

Metabolism
Fiction | hdv | couleur | 11:0 | France | Japon | 2015

Metabolism : “Le point de départ est la découverte d’un photomontage de Arata Isozaki intitulé “Re-ruined Hiroshima”. Cette image est une énigme : dans ce paysage dévasté, deux grandes formes architecturées se dessinent : ces structures constituées (on le suppose) par des débris récupérés dans les alentours, surplombent une ville mise à terre. Les métabolistes (un groupe d’urbanistes et d’architectes japonais autour d’une même vision : la ville du futur ) ont projeté de reconstruire ce pays, de (lui) façonner une nouvelle identité. Ce fut une sorte d’élan tendu vers l’avenir, vers un futur développement de l’espace urbain qui devait répondre aux flux des populations vers les centres urbains. Ils s’inscrivirent néanmoins dans une continuité idéoloqique ‘traditionnelle’ faisant référence à l’image iconique du temple d’Ise . Le métabolisme fût la dernière utopie moderniste du XXème siècle, cette découverte m’a passionné et a suscité le désir de faire ce film. Certains de leurs projets non réalisés sont introduits dans ce film par le truchement des techniques numériques, dans le Tokyo de 2015. Jalons historiques et présences fantomatiques inscrites dans les strates urbaines de la mégapole japonaise.


Qu’il soit filmique ou photographique, le travail de Pierre Jean Giloux débute par le stade préparatoire du dessin, phases de recherches où la pensée s’organise par strates, avant de passer à la réalisation. Ses installations photographiques composées de suites d’images peuvent être qualifiées de « storyboards agrandis ». Ces dernières -le plus souvent exposées en milieux urbains- se confrontent aux rapports d’échelles et questionnent le statut de l’image au sein même de la cité. Ses travaux vidéo sont les résultats d’associations et hybridations d’images. Il développe par le biais des techniques numériques un travail de collage, montage, de compositions visuelles et sonores qui incluent des séquences animées en 2 et 3 d. Il aime à faire cohabiter le virtuel et le réel dans le dessein d’établir un dialogue et de questionner notre rapport au réel et vice versa. En 2015, Pierre-Jean Giloux à la Villa Kujoyama (Kyoto, Japon) où il réalise le quatrième et dernier volet de “Invisible Cities” intitulé “Station to Station”. Ses installations vidéos et ses films ont été exposés dans de nombreuses institutions et festivals, notamment le Centre Pompidou, le MAC VAL, le CREDAC, Comix Home Base de Hong Kong, au Kyoto Art Center, au Pavillon de l’Arsenal à Paris.

Invisible Cities
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 0:0 | France | Japon | 2017

Comme dans le roman éponyme d’Italo Calvino, ces Invisible Cities ravivent un imaginaire utopique, qui entrelace les villes et leur mémoire, les villes et le désir, le regard, les signes. La part invisible révélée par l’artiste et qui instaure un lien de connivence entre les quatre volets de cette tétralogie évoque la vision d’une autre planification urbaine, intimement liée aux architectures prospectives des Métabolistes. À la fin des années 50, ce groupe tenta de redéfinir la ville durable, en combinant l’esthétique brutaliste et la modularité organique, en liant intimement le bâti au cycle biologique de la croissance, de la pourriture et de la régénération.


Le travail de Pierre Jean Giloux se situe à la convergence de plusieurs pratiques : l’espace / volume et les images. Ses vidéos sont les résultats d’associations et hybridations d’images. Il développe par le biais des techniques numériques un travail de collage, montage, de compositions visuelles et sonores qui incluent parfois des séquences animées en 2 et 3 d. Les interventions graphiques sur les images lui permettent ainsi de modifier la perception du réel et ainsi de créer des “ mondes reconstruits “. Il aime faire cohabiter le virtuel et le réel dans le dessein d’établir un dialogue et de les questionner.

The Mirroring Cure
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 28:0 | Royaume-Uni | 2006

Tout en retraçant la vie d'un grand chantier de construction, de la démolition à la réalisation de nouveaux bureaux, « The Mirroring Cure » met l'accent sur la secrétaire de la société, qui décide d'interroger les personnes qui travaillent autour d'elle. Elle veut comprendre leur relation au travail, leurs espoirs, leurs craintes et angoisses. Nous sommes spectateur de sa fascination pour l'un des architectes qui, découvre-t-elle, souffre d'une perte de l?équilibre, exacerbée par les grandes dimensions du site. Apparaissant tout d'abord comme un documentaire sur la complexité de l'identité formée par le fait d?être « au travail », ainsi que sur les effets de l'architecture sur le comportement, le film commence à intégrer des éléments de fiction en laissant le spectateur indécis sur le moment où commence la réalité. Dans quelle mesure les personnages sont-ils vraiment en train de jouer, cette question reste ambiguë.

Over The Bones
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 30:0 | Royaume-Uni | 2008

The film interweaves documentary and fiction to depict two characters, a truck driver and a singer. Filmed in their separate working environments their stories converge until they meet through an accident at a swimming pool. The driver witnesses the singer crashing into the end of the pool and passing out. He performs mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Waking the next day the driver discovers he has developed a desire to write music. For the next six months his singing career develops at a rapid pace. The singer temporarily looses her voice, on regaining it she discovers that it has dramatically altered in tone. Although the tale is told retrospectively no conclusion is reached. Is he continuing to sing, did she regain her career, have they permanently swapped voices? He continues on his journey. By combining voice over, interview footage and dramatic tableaux, questions arise as to whether the events are true and to what extent the cast are acting. The film investigates what happens to people once placed in front of a camera and subsequently how a filmmaker can attempt to capture individuals continually shifting performances in real life. How we adjust ?self? in relationship to ?other? and what role storytelling has in the everyday are developed into key questions. By combining voice over, interview footage and dramatic tableaux, questions arise as to whether the events unfolding are true and to what extent the cast are acting. Are the characters figments of each other?s imaginations? Or in fact each other?s alter egos? The film investigates what happens to people once placed in front of a camera and subsequently how a filmmaker can attempt to capture the subtlety of individuals continually shifting performances in real life. How and why we adjust ?self? in relationship to ?other? and what role storytelling has in the everyday are developed into key questions.

Son expédition l?a conduit des des forêts du Nord Ouest Pacifique américain, aux palais abandonnés de Saint Petersburg, jusqu?aux Goulags de la Mer Blanche. Sur la trace d?anciens vestiges, forêts primaires, fossiles de mammouths et ruines, l?explorateur est accompagné par un mystérieux nuage de fumée rouge.

Pan
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 5:45 | USA | 2014

The film Pan (2014) by Anton Ginzburg, explores the genealogy and interactions of reproduction technologies from 16mm film to video formats. It examines variations of the mechanical gaze and its disembodiment in relation to the architectural representation and historical context. The hybrid aura offers an interplay and reconsideration of temporal and spatial relationships.

Fiction expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 35:0 | USA | 2016

“Turo” is a film exploring post-Soviet geography and Constructivist architecture. It is made up four chapters and an introduction-index. Each chapter is exploring a different Constructivist building as a stage for past utopias. The buildings are landmarks of Soviet modernism: Melnikov House (architect Konstantin Melnikov), Narkomfin Building (architect Moisei Ginzburg), ZIL (Automobile factory designed by Vesnin brothers) and also recording of a “ghost mode” of a video game exploring ruins of Pripyat’ (Soviet town affected by Chernobyl catastrophe) featuring unrealized Tatlin’s Tower. Since a lot of Constructivist projects were never realized and existed as potential designs, they are placed into the virtual environments of the video game, positioning utopia within dystopia. It’s an atemporal collective territory, where past dreams coincide with current consumer culture. Modernity could be interpreted as an updated Babel Tower project where the universal tongue would have been imposed over the rest of the world. It still resonates deeply with contemporary culture, but today it exists as an archive of ruins, the record of fragmentation. Exploring various methods of representation the video’s structure combines cinematic approach with layering and digital abstraction. Each part of the film is a metaphorical tower that gets deconstructed throughout the duration of the chapter. Some parts are direct cinematic narratives, like an enormous blaze, while others show use projected images, deconstruction of an image and shaping its potential meanings on the basis of technological reproduction.

Birobidzhan Atlas
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur | 21:22 | USA | 2017

"Birobidzhan Atlas" is a film exploring Jewish Autonomous Region, an area that is located in the Far East of the Russian Federation. Founded by the Soviet government in 1934, the Jewish Autonomous Region became an official self-determined Jewish entity long before the establishment of the State of Israel. The landscape had a harsh geography and climate: it was mountainous, covered with virgin forests of oak, pine and cedar, and also swamplands festering with mosquitoes, and any new settlers would have to build their lives from scratch in this underpopulated region on the border of contested Manchuria. Birobidzhan is a town and the administrative center of the Jewish Autonomous Region, Russia, located on the Trans-Siberian Railway, close to the border with China. It is named after the two rivers: the Bira and the Bidzhan, which are tributaries of the Amur. The city was planned by the second director of Bauhaus, Swiss architect Hannes Meyer, and established in 1931. Birobidzhan Atlas employs Aby Warburg’s method of “ montage-collision ”, to build a representation of the area through combination of historical archives and documentation of today’s landscape, the relationship between the utopian and the represented landscape.

Remote
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur | 23:41 | Belgique | 2016

Remote is a suggestive story. Portrait of a tender companionship in a secluded Irish countryside. Residing in the simplicity of the moment, the waiting and the repetition of days. This is a place where there is no space for imagining a future other than the perpetual repetition of the present. This is a place for survival, to be strong, alone with the wind, eyes burnt by the light. A place of unspoken tenderness, a landscape of silence and solitude in which there will always be someone.

Eva Giolo (b.1991 Brussels) is an audio visual artist. Her practice is predominantly made of filmic portraits that weave between fiction and documentary. They focus on individuals, almost always facing a certain kind of loneliness. She mainly focus on those individuals in their daily life, scripting and observing their actions and daily gestures through the camera. They often touch upon universal human themes and explore the relationship between loss, time and memory. But also the in-between language of the camera and the subject. Presenting memories, images and portraitures as something that can be manipulated and seen with multi-perspectives. Questioning the power of images is a recurrent theme and memories often stand as a central narrative. Giolo obtained a BA and MA in Fine Arts at the Media Arts department of the Royal Academy of Arts (KASK), Ghent. She completed her music education at the Institute of Contemporary Music in London. Recent screenings and exhibitions include: Imagine Science Film Festival, New York; TAZ#17, Ostend; Côté court, Paris; International Film Festival Rotterdam; Blaa Galleri, Copenhagen; BOZAR, Brussels; Courtisane Film Festival, Ghent; Ishibiki Gallery, Kanazawa; In Out Film Festival, Gdansk among others. Giolo won the VAF Wildcard for experimental film (2016) and is a founding member of the small distribution and production platform elephy. Eva Giolo is a post-grad art resident at HISK in Ghent (2018-2020). She currently works and lives in Brussels.

A Greek TV-commercial from the 80s of a product-action racquet game- that failed to become a success in the local market, is being manipulated anew in terms of image and sound. Apart from a funny rhythmical reworking of a rather trite found footage, this work aims at presenting a comical and simplistic view of how American products and trends have been implanted on our collective subconscious through advertising.

Marina Gioti is a filmmaker based in Athens, Greece. Her film and video work has been presented at various festivals and special screenings around Europe and the United States. Her most recent video "B-alles" was an official selection at: New York and Chicago Underground Film Festivals, Cinematexas 11, Hi/Lo Film Festival, Hull International Short Film Festival, among others.

She has also programmed for Synch Festival (artistic director Synch Cinema 2005) and Cinematexas. She is the co-curator of the art exhibition "Anathena", which recently opened at the Deste Foundation (Athens, Greece).

AS TO POSTERITY
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 12:0 | Grèce | 2014

A collection of visual evidence from an Athens of the near future devoid of humans. Its inhabitants have mysteriously disappeared, leaving behind a tableau mourant of concrete, metal and plastic coexisting with with glorious marble and the local flora and fauna. Part science fiction, part archaeological mystery, the work offers a picturesque expedition of the new Greek ruins, through an apposition of findings that serve as hints for the fate of the film’s elusive protagonists, the -conspicuous by absence- Athenians.
