Make News Instead of
0 | dv | couleur | 22:0 | Allemagne | Autriche | 2008

La double projection vidéo « Make news instead of » est basée sur la double projection diapositive d?une exposition de l?artiste, « More Opportunities », à l?Arts Center de Plymouth (Royaume-Uni) en 2007- 2008. Cette ?uvre traite de la question de la transformation de la ville de Plymouth, comme un exemple de changement d?une ville industrielle mise au service de l'économie, dans le contexte de la mondialisation. Il traite du changement d?identité rapide et radical d'une ville et ses habitants, dans un docu-fiction réalisé à partir du collage de matériaux divers, notamment « A Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea », film de Science-fiction de Irwin Allend (1961), un film-documentaire en 16 millimètres sur la grève du chantier naval de Plymouth du Southwest Filmarchive Plymouth (1969), « The Way We Live », documentaire de Jill Craigie sur l?architecte Abercrombie (1946), ou « More Opportunities », une manifestation mise en scène de Barbara Holub (2007).

Parallèlement à son travail d'artiste, la carrière de Barbara Holub comprend notamment la Présidence de la Sécession de Vienne depuis 2006-2007. De 2004-2007, elle a été membre du Comité d'Art Public de Basse-Autriche. En 1999, elle a créé la compagnie d'architecture et d'urbanisme Transparadiso, avec son associé Paul Rajakovics. Leur travail expérimental reflète l'architecture et le développement urbain dans le contexte des questions posées par la mondialisation, en même temps qu?il développe de nouveaux outils pour ce que Transparadiso appelle l?« urbanisme direct ». Parmi les récentes expositions de Barbara Holub, signalons notamment « This is a Gallery and a Gallery is Many Things » à l?Eastside Projects de Birmingham (Royaume-Uni), « Orientierungen » au Regionale 08 de Styria, « Periscope Elevator » à Amsterdam/Ijburg (Pays-Bas), « Ganz nah so fern » à Vienne (en collaboration avec Grita Insam Gallery), ou « More Opportunities » à l?Austrian Cultural Forum du London Festival of Architecture.

Friday Market
Installation vidéo | betaSP | couleur | 8:0 | Autriche | Egypte | 2008

LONG SHOT: In one long shot the camera travels along the section of Cairo?s Friday market that is set up on railroad tracks. Here, framed by the highway and the Al-Imam As Safi?i cemetery, every Friday locals and vendors from all over the city offer their products for sale, set up on tables or spread on the ground. The camera moves at a steady, slow paste along the tracks, like a train passing a closed down station. The people inhabiting the market ? the sellers and buyers, and the people living at its edge become the protagonist of the film, collapsing the borders between performance, documentary and fiction film. The slow paste of the shot allows the viewer?s attention to oscillate between the market in the foreground ? the goods for sale, the dynamics between sellers and buyers, and the many (informal) architectural layers of the housing area and cemetery directly behind. I am equally interested in the complex and multilayered architectural constructions as in the informal economy of the market. The range of products for sale questions our western concepts of what holds value, and the very notion and definition of a ?product? in itself: What we easily label as trash - useless or broken parts - are being recycled and offered for sale, a sign not only of desperation and economic need, but also of faith in the creativity of the buyer to find a possible new use for these items. MAKING-OF: The making-of documents the film shoot during the course of the day (from 6 am to the early afternoon when rain and a sandstorm hit the market) and offers glimpses into the socioeconomic context of the market, the location and its inhabitants through close ups of sellers, buyers and products, and short interviews with locals.

My Castle Your Castle
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 14:47 | Allemagne | 2017

my castle your castle Set up as a somewhat retro TV talk show my castle your castle operates from within the skeleton of the Prussian castle that is currently being re-built in the center of Berlin. Erected on the foundations of the dismantled GDR parliament building called Palace of the Republic, the castle is not only an imperialist architectural remake, in its future function as exhibition space for the ‘Ethnographic Collections’ of Berlins National Museums it literally embodies Germany’s legacies of colonial violence. The video engages with the building site as a stage for the material and social construction – as well as the queer contestation – of ‘nation’ and (white) ‘masculinity’: Interviewed by a talk show host over a piece of cake from porcelain dishes with reproductions of the castle and its disappeared counterpart, two construction workers evoke an opaque third in a language of structural matter. Peter Friedrich had supervised the construction (1973-76) of the Palast der Republik, and Gunter Teichert worked as the head of its deconstruction (2006-08). In the matter of fact conversation between the ‘makers of the palace’, their body of work – in other words architecture, political representation, memory – disintegrates in the builders’ jargon. However, the material and machinic vocabulary of construction site itself resonates the massive urban reconstructions, redistributions of properties and redefinitions of political meaning through architecture that have followed the disappearance of state socialisms in Europe. This vocabulary is emphasized and queered in short interludes to the talk show in which the talk show host, who is performed by the artist Kerstin Honeit herself incorporating elements of drag, appears sitting on a huge excavating machine or between metal poles that stabilize casts for concrete. (Text by Suza Husse)

Bio Kerstin Honeit was born in Berlin, where she still lives and works. She studied Fine Art and Theatre Design at the Kunsthochschule Weißensee in Berlin. Since 2014 Honeit has been teaching at the Kunsthochschule Kassel (künstlerische Mitarbeiterin, class of Bjørn Melhus). Using video works, performance and installations in her artistic research, Honeit examines worlds of hegemonic image production in the media of information technology and pop culture. Intervening at the boundaries of representation and reception, she questions the construction of social norms. Her recent work has been shown at Berlinische Galerie - Museum of Modern Art, Haohaus Taipei, Stuttgarter Filmwinter - Festival for Expanded Media, Bärenzwinger Berlin, SixtyEight Art Institute Copenhagen, Kunstverein Leipzig, International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, Arsenal - Institut für Film u.

Artiste majeur de la scène canadienne des années 70, Collin Campbell, maître du "drag" dans ses vidéos, était un provocateur du genre. Bien plus qu`un simple portrait d`un artiste et de son époque, le film est une réflexion captivante sur le désir d`images et sur l`emprise qu`exercent celles-ci. Mike Hoolboom cinéaste expérimental prolifique et passionnant nous livre ici un film à la narration innovante et d`une exceptionnelle beauté. Mais "Fascination" est avant tout un film sur vous...

Mike Hoolbloom est un vidéaste et réalisateur canadien, souvent considéré comme l'un des réalisateurs expérimentaux les plus talentueux de sa génération. Il est l'auteur de deux livres : "Plague Years" (1998) et "Fringe Film in Canada" (2001). Co-fondateur du collectif de programmation Pleasure Dome, il a été directeur artistique du Images Festival et coordinateur de la section cinéma expérimental du Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre. Il a remporté plus de trente récompenses internationales. Ses ?uvres ont notamment été présentées au Musée d'Art Moderne, au Centre Pompidou et dans des festivals majeurs. Neuf retrospectives lui ont été consacrées, la dernière à Buenos Aires.

Public lighting
Doc. expérimental | dv | couleur et n&b | 76:0 | Canada | 2004

« Public Lighting est une méditation sur la photographie et la création d'images, qui peuvent capturer, remplacer nos expériences, et leur survivre. Le film est divisé en 7 parties. Chaque chapitre est une étude de cas, de différents types de personnalités identifiés par le jeune auteur, qui nous guide dans le prologue. Le premier, homme gay, nous emmène faire la tournée des bars et des restaurants, où il a vécu des ruptures amoureuses. Il nous raconte sur le mode ironique ses histoires avec ses ex amants. Un hommage à Philipp Glass est suivi, de manière plutôt incongrue, par Hey Madonna, lettre de confession adressée à la chanteuse par l'un de ses fans, séropositif. Amy célèbre un autre anniversaire, mais avoue qu?elle n?a aucun souvenir de ce qu?elle voit à la télévision. Ceci dit, au moins elle a une caméra : "Je prends des images non pour m?aider à me souvenir, mais pour enregistrer mes oublis" . Hiro vit sa vie à distance, et s'aventure rarement au-delà de l'objectif. Un jeune mannequin anxieux raconte des événements poignants de son passé. Peu de réalisateurs se réapproprient le footage de manière aussi forte : à la fois drôles et incisives, ces images nous ramènent à des parties de nous-mêmes. Le travail récent de Mike Hoolboom a une telle empathie avec la condition humaine qu'il nous parle directement au c?ur. » Mark Webber, London film festival

Set among an isolated community in a remote landscape near the Russian border, BOUNDARY evokes a space of ambiguity, a psychogeography, an absence of personal histories. It is the first installment in a tetralogy of films based on a statement by Sadeq Hedayat: ?In life it is possible to become angelic, human, or animal. I have become none of these things.?

Born 1982 in the United States. Graduated in Art History from Columbia University in New York City. Worked for Lithuanian film-maker Sharunas Bartas on the film Eastern Drift (Indigene d`Eurasie) as a camera assistant. BOUNDARY is his first film.

Standing Nymph and Man
Doc. expérimental | 4k | couleur | 17:22 | USA | 2017

In the film Standing Nymph with Man, the Fine Arts Building in Chicago is the protagonist rather than the subject. Originally designed by Spencer Beman in 1884 as a soundproof structure for the Studebaker Company (horse carts and automobiles), the building has for many years been home to artists` studios and services for classical music. This sonic history and presence is constantly evoked in the film`s soundtrack, which brings to the forefront the reverberant acoustic qualities of the building. Another invisible yet audible presence is the occasional voice of the building`s cleaning woman who relates her personal encounters with the building. Her voice is in counterpoint to the elevator operator`s whistling, a leitmotif in the soundtrack that we hear only in reflection, since we only ever see him from behind. This insistence on an invisible yet highly palpable acousmatic presence creates a rich sonic world that embraces the film`s visual mixture of live action footage and LIDAR animation. These visual techniques focus on the details of both the surfaces of the building`s interiors and its three-dimensional forms, tying the intimate upper floors to the first-floor theater, uniting surface, volume, material, reverberation, and resonance, and articulating historical traces that surpass subjects or authors. Anonymity, in fact, permeates both the building and the film, from the anonymous painting that gives the film its title, to the cleaning woman who chooses to remain anonymous in the film`s making, to the numerous lesser known musicians practicing their craft in private behind closed doors that nonetheless allow the seepage of their intermingling music into the resonant hallways of the building.

Milad Mozari’s work moves through concepts of music, belief systems, absence, and structures. His research-based practice often starts with sound or spatial experiments, which then attempt to resonate physically, historically, and experientially. While studying for his BS in International Studies at the University of Utah, he began to make and exhibit work about language and place. He continued his studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he received an MFA in the Department of Sound. His work has shown internationally at the Hong Kong Arts Centre, International Symposium of Electronic Arts, Chicago International Film Festival, Litmus Community Space, Chicago Cultural Center, the Studebaker Theater, Roots & Culture and Experimental Sound Studio. Fellowships and residencies include Asian Cultural Council Grant to individuals, ACRE, Tsung-Yeh Artist Village and soundpocket. He currently lives in Chicago where he teaches at SAIC in the Department of Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Designed Objects.

The Night between Ali and I
Vidéo | 4k | couleur | 9:5 | Espagne | Liban | 2015

“The night between Ali and I”, is a fictional reenactment of one of the key events that happened in Lebanese and Levantine contemporary History: the highjack of 39 hostages at the Bank of America in Beirut, on October 18th, 1973. In this event four armed young fellows from the Lebanese Socialist Revolutionary Movement entered the bank, in Downtown Beirut, and asked from the authorities ten million dollars for the Arab fight against Imperialism in the region and the release of a few Arab political prisoners. They also requested that their demands and manifesto be published in the newspaper. The installation displayed as a tryptich with three main voices: Amer Farrough, one of the 4 men, Mariam, Ali’s sister and our own narration of the events. The images evoke in a particular way what happened during the night of the 26 hours that lasted the hijack but very much as we imagine things happen during the assault, and how the interaction between hostages and guerrilla gunmen in our view with a particular dance, a “deconstructed” dabke.

A collaboration between Nadia Hotait and Laila Hotait. Nadia Hotait is a multimedia artist that has exhibited her work at different international venues among others the Zolla/Lieberman gallery in Chicago, the Biennial of Young art in Moscow, Isabel Igancio Gallery in Seville and Digital Marrakesh.

Nous juxtaposons des plans, des projects et des théories d´urbanisme du magazin AA et des images de film, qui s´occupent des même sujets, avec les moyens cinématografique. A cause du format cinémascope du film nous avons coupé le magazin en trois parts. Par après nous avons pris des fotos en parcourant le nouveau magazine (avec des fotos du film de Godards et la revue AA). Sur cette base nous avons fait le film "Revue" et nous avons attribué des parts de la bande sonore du film original.

The couple artists hide neither their sources in the world around them nor their processes. They openly declare the strategy of appropriation that lies at the heart of their work unsettles by its play with these reflections or imitations of things that already exist. The art of Hösl&Mihaljevic is a delicate system of balance constructed on a logic that is never entirely clear, but one that leads us to other forms of seeing and perceiving. Felicity Lunn

In 1995, there was a human-shape balloon on the top of Chongxing Bridge in Taipei, and there was also the attempt of suspending all kinds of items in the air, such as washing machine, boiling hot pot, the statue of Chiang Kai-shek, and sex doll, trying to crash them to the ground. But the plan failed eventually; nothing was destroyed. Before everything started, it ended because of the self-explosion of the human-shape balloon. The same year under Chongxing Bridge, there was also a large scale fight. The people present there that day slashing each other with iron rod or sashimi knife. When we found the people invovled, however, they told us it was actually a fight between political factions.   Re-rupture assembles two seemingly unrelated historical fragments: "People`s Taxi riot" and "Taipei Breaking Sky." I invited five drivers who participated in the fight at the time to return to the event site, while hanging a guitarist Li Na-shao on the top of Chongxing Bridge to play music.

Hsu Che-Yu was born in Taipei in 1985.Earning his master’s degree from the Graduate Institute of Plastic Arts, Tainan National University of the Arts. Hsu Che-Yu works as an artist who primarily creates animations, videos and installations that feature the relations between media and memories. What matters to the artist is not simply the history of events traceable through media, but also the construction and visualization of memories, be they private or collective.

Narrated by Chinese Malaysian singer Fish Leong, the project ?March 14, Hong Kong Coliseum? follows her tour through different cities in Asia, including Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore, Malaysia, Beijing, Guangzhou, Kunming, and Chengdu. In Chinese world, almost everyone knows Fish Leong and her voice. Here was a huge entertainment industry with a pan-Asian approach. The tour moved from city to city, and wherever it went, the stage, lighting, and songs at each event were similar, and each concert scene was also a confrontation between globalization and local cultures. In this exhibition, I present a single-channel version and make two images juxtaposed. The video shows an empty concert scene with neither the singer nor audiences. The real event becomes an enormous and fictional scene. Here, the concerts represent globalization, but the video work makes this connection drift apart.

I live and work in Taipei, Taiwan. I am now a full-time artist. My method is a specific kind of ?Narrative? -- a way of documenting that interferes with the reality of the text, by focusing on a site?s specific and peculiar characteristics, such as memory, imagination, or identification. With these characteristics in mind, I develop a narrative, and between the reality of the text and the fictional narrative, I construct a myth or a legend. I am also one of the members from Open-Contemporary Art Center in Taipei, Taiwan. This art space consists of numerous young artist and runs over 8 years. Through practicing organizing exhibitions and writing, I try to expand art influences to the society.

Huatung Village was located in Sijhih City in Taiwan and populated by the Amis people. In 1985, there were three Amis families farming vegetables by the Dakeng River Bridge along Provincial Highway No. 5. The next year, about ten Amis families built cabins and stayed there. That is how Huatung Village started. By 1996, it became a village of 215 families. It was a huge block of illegal buildings. The villagers used abandoned iron sheets and wood to build their houses. They also used those materials to build the traditional tribal lookouts, community meeting rooms, and churches. In 1997, the government evicted the whole village and moved them to subsidized government housing. Now, the site is covered by grass, and one can only find a few ruins left behind. My work was videotaping the actual site. Juxtaposing separate audio and video tracks, the chieftain?s voiceover talks about the village?s history, while the video track shows what the village looks like nowadays. Gradually, as day turns into night, the video?s structure changes from documentation to another approach: I wanted to constantly blend the layers between the location (documentation) and the scene (narrative).

The Story of Hoping Island
Installation vidéo | hdv | couleur | 12:40 | Taiwan | 2008

?The Story of Hoping Island? was shot in a shipyard on Hoping Island in Keelung, which has 88 years of history. During the Japanese occupation of Taiwan, it was the Japanese government?s southernmost shipyard, and as such, it supported Imperial Japanese, southward expansion. After the retrocession of Taiwan, the shipyard played a key role in Taiwan?s economic takeoff. This shipyard represents a highly compressed, symbolic timeframe, from WWII to now. The shipyard reflects how the locals identify themselves based on their specific, local histories, and at the same time, how the national government encodes and directs history. To support this history, complicated traditions and myths are continually developed and developing. So Hsu, Chia-Wei shot this shipyard, a real space, and responded to the shipyard?s other historical side: the legend. The whole scene of ?The Story of Hoping Island? was shot in the shipyard in Hoping Island. Artist invited his grandmother to describe the situation in Japanese (She had received Japanese education). Through the process of narratives, this place seems remote and deserted caused of no people appeared in the video. (Actually, there are usually numerous of workers) In this work, artist regarded this shipyard as a memory crystal to develop the narratives. Through the complexity of place and memory, this place becomes an effective instrument to reproduce memory. In this video, an artist-created creature?Ni-Ku is the only element to connect to the narrative. It has weightless science-fictional characteristic: both the military detector and the luminary. Artist also put electronic music with shattered rhythms in the background. Through this tiny creature, this work responds to the grand era and so do the fictional narratives respond to the politics statement. It also permeates through history, memory and dream. Or we could say that history itself seems like memory and dream to some extent. There is many usage of ?light? in this work, including the luminous Ni-Ku in the narratives, sparkling gem-like light in the shipyard, the lighting in the end of the video, and also the physics light from projector in the space. In the illusory dimension, with its light-like non-material characteristic, this work transits the immense and heavy history to a legend. ?The Story of Hoping Island? lies in constantly-overlapped process of history and dream, image space and physical space, reality and fiction. While national governments continuously constructed its own identification, this work becomes a weightless, fictional space, and provides a breathing break.

My method is a specific kind of ?Narrative? -- a way of documenting that interferes with the reality of the text, by focusing on a site?s specific and peculiar characteristics, such as memory, imagination, or identification. With these characteristics in mind, I develop a narrative, and between the reality of the text and the fictional narrative, I construct a myth or a legend. I am also one of the members from Open-Contemporary Art Center in Taipei, Taiwan. This art space consists of numerous young artist and runs over 11 years. Through practicing organizing exhibitions and writing, I try to expand art influences to the society.

This video is an analytical montage of shots extracted from more than 60 films from the Chinese Cultural Revolution period. It exclusively studies the moments of the interpellation of the Ideology (Louis Althusser) which are represented physically by music, words, gazes, gestures and situations found in these films. Strictly speaking, Ecstasy does not lend itself to a specific synopsis, but this does not mean that there is nothing to look at in it. The multiple symbols and meanings extracted from a wide range of shots make up the narratives found in this video: The resemblance of the music in different films, the dramatic gazes with catchlights (like they are absorbed by an overwhelming feeling of great excitement, where the title Ecstasy comes from), the repetition of the words (like ‘Mao Zhuxi’, Chairman Mao), the robotic gestures (raising one’s head, turning around), the faces with tears, the symbolic objects which reincarnate the transmission of ecstasy (like needle, spanner and apple) and the exaggerated film techniques (close-up, zoom in). This video is one of a series of videos and they are not only reexaminations of the cinema of that period but also reflections of history as told through cinema.

Suite à la démolition du quartier Yanji, situé au centre-ville de Canton (Chine) qui devient une zone de chantier entre construction et destruction. Une seule maison reste aujourd`hui visible dans cette vaste zone désaffectée. Celle-ci est désormais source de nombreux récits, merveilleuse, elle détiendrait le secret du monde. Un jeune homme jette des pierres face à cette étendue et tente, de déclencher une vibration du monde, jusqu`à l`épuisement, et une femme observe le lointain avec des jumelles. Un geste ancré dans un rapport de lutte intime, incarné entre le corps et l`architecture, la modernité et la ruine, un geste pour réactiver un lien sensible avec ce qu`il reste du réel.

Une maison s'envole et se balade à pieds dans le paysage. Description: une maison implantée à Fontaine-les-Dijon, à la frontière nord entre la ville et la campagne, est soudainement soulevée dans les airs. Transportée par une douzaine de porteurs, dont on peut voir dépasser les pieds, la maison décampe en ligne droite, traverse le lotissement et finit sa course dans la campagne, en disparaissant au-dessus de la ligne d'horizon.

La fée Utopia en 4 temps : ses colères chantées, ses spontanéités et galipettes magiques ponctuées de bruits de manifestation sociales et de musiques mystérieuses. Le fond de l?histoire : « Nous sommes complexes et les apparences sont trompeuses /que savez vous de moi en me regardant ? je pourrais être terroriste, infirmière, astronome ? je te souris, mais tu me dégoûtes? La colère d?être petite et pleine d?espoir face à la fatalité médiocre. Même les fées bleues qui font des bulles peuvent être bourrées, et demain ça ira mieux?.

v.hubert, née en 1970, vit et travaille à Alfortville/Paris représentée par la Galerie Quang Paris "Depuis une dizaine d`années, Véronique Hubert élabore une ?uvre complexe qu`il ne faut pas réduire à l`humour agité qui la traverse. Travaillant dans la multiplication des compétences, sa dispersion contraste avec la rigueur et la constance de son propos. Son ?uvre se dessine dans la superposition de ses expressions ; vidéos, tracts, dessins, photographies et écrits, réalisés depuis 1995. Une connaissance aiguisée de l`histoire de l`art, du cinéma, du milieu médical, de la musique électronique ainsi qu`une curiosité sans limites fournissent à l`artiste un matériau très riche qu`elle déploie dans des constructions fictionnelles, des petites histoires ou saynètes interprétées par des personnages "prétextes" faussement enfantins, aux dérives paranoïaques.
