An aviation field in an unknown suburb. The lake underneath the city burns the streets. The mountains throw rock into the gardens. In the crater of a volcano in Fogo, a model Brazilian city is lifted and dissolves. Two people find each other in this landscape, 50 years apart.

The rapid turning of a light draws a circle. In the space bound by its line unravels an archive of postcards sent between the island of Madeira and the former Portuguese colony of Mozambique. The figures carved into the Knife by the Sap of the Banana Trees circulates between a fictional colonial memory, and science-fiction.

Box
Vidéo expérimentale | dv | couleur | 8:0 | Finlande | Fidji (Îles) | 2004

Box is based on photographs from Tunguska, Siberia, where a large area of land was destroyed when a huge meteorite exploded above the ground in 1908. The video is a slow composition, where landscape images go through several stages of transformation. The video material which was further developed into "Box" was originally made for a stage version of Stalker, produced by Circus Maximus at Helsinki City Theater in 2003.

The Finnish duo Pink Twins, the brothers Vesa and Juha Vehviläinen, started to work together in 1997. Since then they have been exploring visual and sonic noise combined in a most physical experience. Sampling the everyday images and tearing them apart to pixels then putting them together again to a chaotic and blasting unity. In Pink Twins` music and video works "the logical and analytic thematic developments surrender to the frenetic and non-repetitive information overflow.

PINK TWINS est un duo d'artistes multimédias parmi les plus novateurs actuellement. Invité à la Biennale de Venise cette année où ils ont donné un concert exceptionnel au Théâtre de la Fenice début octobre, PINK TWINS est formé par les frères Juha et Vesa Vehviläinen, nés en 1978 et 1974. Ils vivent et travaillent à Helsinki. Ils collaborent depuis 1997. Artistes plasticiens s?exprimant au travers d?entités sonores et, parallèlement, artistes sonores qui s?expriment au travers du visuel, les PINK TWINS ont construit un tissu de connections entre leur travail sonore et leur travail visuel, essayant de joindre intimement des fragments du quotidien a priori disjoints. Ils partent de fragments d?images, de sons, de sensations auxquels notre existence est soumise quotidiennement, pour les décomposer en petites particules, et les réunir à nouveau dans des constructions audacieuses qui partent du chaos, le pulvérise et le rende abstrait, selon une sensibilité artistique unifiée. Les particules multiformes sont insérées dans des combinaisons chromatiques étonnantes et des collusions sonores fascinantes, qui, à la différence du chaos auquel nous sommes soumis quotidiennement, est abouti, et correspond à une profonde nécessité, sans aucun superflu. Ils travaillent sur l?expérience physique de perception des sons, et la sensibilité temporelle, fabriquent des sons abstraits, des bruits, qui ont une part active dans l?acte d?écoute. Ces dernières années, grâce au développement des technologies numériques, l?assemblage des sons a dépassé les limites du médium audio, pour déborder sur des espaces et des visions, modifiant ainsi la perception de l?espace lui-même. Le background des PINK TWINS dans les arts visuels, et la création du logiciel Framestein par Juha, les a certainement aidés à se déplacer vers une organisation visuelle du temps, du son et de l?espace.


Pink Twins (brothers Juha and Vesa Vehvilainen from Helsinki) have been working together since 1997. Working as computer musicians and video artists, Pink Twins perform live as well as show video and sound installations in exhibitions.

Pink Twins is a duo of musicians and video artists, brothers Juha and Vesa Vehviläinen from Helsinki, Finland. Active since 1997, Pink Twins have displayed their video works and played their music to audiences in Europe and Asia, in festivals, art spaces, clubs, churches, and outdoor events. Mostly created with their self-made software, Pink Twins' video works are abstract and painterly, from formal compositions to extremely fast shapeless pixel storms. Music of Pink Twins, based on improvisation and the brothers' symbiotic collaboration, is a chaotic whole of intense soundbursts, melodies, and infinitely detailed sounds. In their concerts, Pink Twins create a constantly changing multi-layered wall of sound, and aim for a physical, mental, and spatial experience. The live music is normally accompanied by video projections. During 2005 and 2006 Pink Twins performed actively in Europe and Asia. Their most notable performances have been the Venice Biennial Music Festival and a tour in China. Pink Twins has also had several solo and group exhibitions, for example, in Sweden, Luxembourg, China, and Mongolia. Pink Twins have released five CDs on their own label Pink Twins Media. A double DVD compilation will have been released in late 2006.

Les Pink Twins travaillent au croisement de l'art visuel et de la musique. Leur traitement par ordinateur des images et du son, qui procède souvent grâce à des logiciels qu?ils ont développés eux-mêmes, se concentre sur la perception humaine, sur ses fonctionnalités et ses limites. Dans leurs exécutions publiques, les Pink Twins mélangent de la musique électronique live à un mixage live d??uvres vidéo. La musique des Pink Twins est basée sur l'improvisation de sons, constitués de sonorités concrètes et électroniques, de bruits et d?éléments musicaux. Le mixage des sons et des projections vidéo provoque une expérience du temps et l'espace hyperactive, extrêmement minutieuse et en constante évolution.

Exhibition Talks
Doc. expérimental | 16mm | noir et blanc | 9:0 | Autriche | 2014

Wenn, wie Walter Benjamin behauptet hat, Gebäude auf doppelte Art, durch Gebrauch und Wahrnehmung rezipiert werden, d.h. taktil und optisch, dann könnte man Sasha Pirkers und Lotte Schreibers Exhibition Talks als Versuch verstehen, diese doppelte Rezeptionsweise ein Stück weit zu entkoppeln. Während auf der Tonspur vom Gebrauch der Ausstellungsräume des Tiroler Architekturforums aut die Rede ist, von den Gegebenheiten der einzelnen Räume und den Möglichkeiten, sie für eigene Bedürfnisse zu adaptieren, liefert die Bildspur fragmentarische, statische und in Schwarzweiß gehaltene Ansichten derselben Räume, die allein schon deshalb im optischen Register verharren, weil sie über die Montage zu keinem kohärenten Raumganzen verbunden werden. Anstatt die Größe der Räume und ihre gebaute Anordnung etwa über einen Rundgang durch das Gebäude zu "erzählen", fängt die Kamera Details der Fassade und der Innenräume ein, die zum einen mit ihren klar gezogenen Linien und den vielfältigen Gelegenheiten zu Ein-, Aus- und Durchblicken von der Formensprache der klassischen Moderne zeugen, zum anderen diese Formensprache einem optischen Spiel von Licht und Schatten, von Grauwerten und Schwarzweiß aussetzen, das die drei Dimensionen des Bauwerks grafisch auflöst. Bestand die Pointe der doppelten Rezeptionsweise von Gebäuden bei Benjamin in der Übertragung auf die Wahrnehmungsbedingungen am Ort des Kinos (Zerstreuung statt Kontemplation), scheint die experimentelle Entkopplung von optischer Wahrnehmung und taktilem Gebrauch in Exhibition Talks einer anderen Logik zu folgen. Obwohl vom Bild strikt getrennt, suchen die Möglichkeiten des Gebrauchs nach Wegen ins Sichtbare. "Normalerweise ist der Eingang hier": Zu sehen ist eine Öffnung, durch die Licht auf eine Wand fällt, während der übrige Raum im Schatten versinkt. Die Öffnung ist ein Fenster, sie könnte aber auch eine Tür sein bzw. ist sie gerade im Begriff, zu einer solchen zu werden. Von solchen Übergängen handelt Exhibition Talks: vom Offenen, vom Beweglichen und Veränderlichen des gebauten Raums. (Vrääth Öhner)

Paperwork

Factory and office?these two architectural poles characterize Sasha Pirker?s Paperwork. On the one hand is the paper factory in the Italian town of Verzuolo whose largely automated processes the film captures in its first and final thirds in mainly static takes. On the other hand, Paperwork leads us into, around, and through the company headquarters of the Burgo Group, located in San Mauro near Turin, whose production sites include the aforementioned paper factory. The administrative building, which has largely been preserved in its original state, was built in the late 1970s according to plans drawn up by Oscar Niemeyer, a star architect in today?s terms. The building sits in the landscape like an elegant, curved, circular space ship, bearing witness to an era in which the administrative and service sector began to overtake industrial work.

Video and video installation THINKING THE FORM at the Viennale in 2011. Sasha Pirkeris not just a filmmaker but a philosopher of space: Her architectural explorations of public and private buildings by eminent architects, such as Lautner, Schindler and Niemeyer aren?t documentaries on buildings but dialogues with these structures? social, political and societal dimensions. Pirker?s close look at detail speaks for the whole: with a downright affectionate understanding of space, she looks out from the inside (less often the other way round), foregoes the big picture of overall views for a gaze into interiors, as if into the bowels of utopias and sanctuaries cast in stone. The power of her films is frequently due to the interplay of images and sounds, when, for instance, the weird and wonderful stories told by people off camera make the architectural space come alive with astonishing tales.

Once at Miracle Mile
Doc. expérimental | dv | couleur | 9:10 | Autriche | 2009

?Once at Miracle Mile? The Pearl M. Mackey Apartment House in Los Angeles, built in 1939 by Rudolph M. Schindler, is completely compelling to Sasha Pirker. In her work, she doesn?t strive to merely capture architecture on film, nor to simply record and document what she sees, but rather to work with the building itself (albeit in a restrained and respectful way), indeed to map it. Intriguingly, Sasha Pirker takes what would seem awkward in a conventional feature film and makes it her own: the idiosyncratic use of cross dissolves in this short film becomes in fact its main stylistic principle, and ? stunningly ? it works. In ?Once at Miracle Mile,? several calm, steady and yet at times even hesitant circular camera pans are intertwined, playing with the gaze and the expectations of the audience. Into the background of one pan enters a second, although this one refuses to displace the first ? at least not initially ? but rather, the two camera pans exist simultaneously, allowing the viewer?s attention to move between the coming and going of the images, jumping ? no, gliding ? back and forth. A slow-motion dance through the building, a dance with the building, a fusion of inside and out, a simultaneity of views ? as if we were passing the house and just happened to catch a glimpse of ourselves in one of the windows. Why not? Everything is possible at Miracle Mile on this mild Californian afternoon. This film is a declaration of love, made with solemn and tender affection for the house it?s also a remembrance of: Once ? (Bernhard Seiter) Translation: Janet Grau

Documentaire | 0 | couleur | 19:16 | Autriche | France | 2010

At the end of the 1960s, when there was still a future, Oscar Niemeyer, living in France, designed the headquarters of the French Communist Party. Sasha Pirker`s film studies the relationships between this building, with its futuristic qualities, and the contemporary situation of political projects, economic realities and aesthetic attitudes. The cinematic means employed are chosen so as to provide various ways of viewing this unusual building as a physical space, an institution or a historical document, thus looking into its aesthetic effect, its practical use or its political and symbolic meaning. The Future will not be Capitalist alternates between sober insights into the everyday working life of those employed at the party headquarters and shots which make reference to the modernist effect of the shapes and materials of Niemeyer`s building. Off-camera, comments and memories related by the administrator of the headquarters lead the viewer through the building, painting a picture of the current politics of a shrunken party constantly reminded of its ideal state by its magnificent headquarters.

THE FACE - Storefront for Art & Architecture
Vidéo | 16mm | couleur | 4:30 | Autriche | USA | 2011

The face is usually the expressive surface which marks a person`s identity. "Face" does not, however, just refer to the human face, but could also mean the face of a building: the façade that "adorns" a building. In Sasha Pirker`s so-named short film, shot on 16 mm using a hand-held camera, these two meanings come at one another from diametrically opposed positions. On one hand Pirker is trying to show the building as a whole, plucking out individual fragments in an entirely subjective manner; fragments which the viewer then has to piece together. One clue to this interpretation is a quote by the artist Birgit Baldasti which flashes up right at the start: "If I was a poet I?d say that pleasure lies in other people refining your own imagination." On the other hand Pirker selects the clips of the building such that the individual faces of the passers-by remain hidden. In THE FACE all entities, both architectural and human, exist without their primary identifying feature: their face. Metaphorically only the eyes, mouth, nose and ears of the architecture can be seen, while people are generally cut off, or are filmed in silhouette from behind. The framing means that each image in the film just shows a clipping: here, there is no longer any suggestion of anything being shown as a whole. In Sasha Pirker`s view, the architectural elements are also given sculptural accents. At the same time, Pirker juggles with views from within and without, bringing out the limited, snippet-like view and precisely thus firing the imagination. Almost incidentally she also succeeds in connecting the gallery space and the street ? the primary aim of the two men of action Vito Acconci and Steven Holl when they renovated the façade of the Storefront for Art and Architecture (NYC) in 1993.

Les Formidables
Documentaire | hdv | couleur | 29:51 | Luxembourg | 2014

Documentaire sous forme d`extraits de témoignages autour des peurs et des angoisses de cinq jeunes. Quatre d`entre eux sont demandeurs d`asile et doivent conserver l`anonymat (prénoms d`emprunt). Ils ont entre 18 et 21 ans et ont tous endossé les enjeux de la vie d`adulte. Par hasard, ça se passe au Luxembourg. Il y a plus de 90 nationalités différentes qui se croisent, au Luxembourg, dans nos écoles, nos lycées, nos foyers, avec toutes ces histoires bien particulières : de guerre, d’après-guerre, de manque d’argent, d’exil. Ce sont ces couloirs des exilés auxquels fait référence le sociologue français, Michel Agier. Le documentaire, en trois chapitres donne la place à quelques uns de ces couloirs - quelques uns de ces récits.


Karolina Markiewicz (1976), diplômée en sciences politiques, philosophie et théâtre, et Pascal Piron (1981) diplômé en arts plastiques, travaillent tous deux dans l’enseignement au Luxembourg. Parallèlement, ils développent des travaux artistiques (peinture pour Pascal et mise en scène et écriture pour Karolina) - indépendamment jusqu’en 2013, où démarre leur parcours commun avec l’exposition Everybody should have the right to die in an expensive car réalisée pour le Kiosk de l`Aica Luxembourg. La collaboration qui en découlera permettra aux deux d’envisager leurs travaux artistiques différemment. Pascal ne verra plus l’image de façon bidimensionnelle et reprendra des travaux portée sur la vidéo, quant à Karolina, elle se tournera vers un théâtre d’images, plus abstrait. Tous deux s’intéressent désormais à l’image comme trace qui évolue dans le temps. Ainsi, les travaux s`axent autour de l`installation, la vidéo, du théâtre et des arts plastiques. Plusieurs projets en découlent, notamment le documentaire Les Formidables ainsi que Kulturstuktur /audio+video blog (le projet d’entretiens). Ces projets observent l`individu comme faisant partie d’une communauté humaine, quelque peu résignante d`apparence, mais qui aux travers de certains événements ou objets: film, œuvre d`art, pièce de théâtre, réalisation architecturale ou composition musicale, s`avère être lucide et forte.

During the Second World War, the story goes, eighteen Jews hid above the lion’s cages. The Nazis, who loved the zoo, cared about the lions and bought them the best meat, usually lamb. The old lions couldn’t eat all they were given, so they left some of it to their new “roommates” for three years.

Karolina Markiewicz and Pascal Piron’s collaborative work creates links between film, visual arts and theatre. At the center is the individual person as part of a human community, oscillating between resignation and hope. Karolina Markiewicz studied political science, philosophy and theatre and works as a film and theatre director. Pascal Piron studied visual arts and works as an artist and film director. Both work as teachers. Their cooperation started in 2013, with an exhibition for Aica Luxembourg entitled Everybody should have the right to die in an expensive car. In 2014, they made a first documentary called Les Formidables, which tells the story of five young migrants in Luxembourg. In 2014, they found the video blog kulturstruktur.com. In 2015 they worked on the project Philoktet, which includes the homonymous play by Heiner Müller and an exhibition relating the Greek tragedy to Robert Oppenheimer and the atomic bomb. At the same time they released their second documentary Mos Stellarium, produced by Tarantula and supported by Film Fund Luxembourg. Part of this project is the installation of Mos Stellarium, which offers different parts of the movie simultaneously, thus giving a non-linear reading of the film. Their current work includes a video series entitled Side-effects of reality. It consists in a number of short films and video installations. Our reality is a vague and imprecise thing, hardly accessible. The core idea of Side-effects of Reality is to push this inaccessible reality to a poetic level, thus creating through video and text a new image of reality. This image is not the same as its content, it has its own mythology, and by this offers a different take on understanding our reality.

Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 8:41 | Luxembourg | 2018

Europa im Herbst - Polska Rodzinka (Europe in Autumn - Polish family) is a short portrait of a tormented Poland, a tormented and conflicted Europe in 2018. Not only populists raise their brutal voices but also right extremists reappear in a very quick rhythm like in the 30s. This experimental short documentary is the result of a journey through Poland where several families co-exist and argue: our own family, the one of the anti-fascist and pro-European protesters, the one of the police, the one of the musicians... The last ones reinterpret old pre-Second World War songs, written by polish Jews, in which people dance and die. Europa im Herbst - Polska Rodzinka is a short merry-go-round ride of our stay in Poland and in Europe in the summer of 2018.

VR expérimental | 0 | couleur | 8:0 | Luxembourg | 2019

FEVER (8-10 minutes) is an experience in virtual reality. For both adults and children, a high fever can mean hallucinations — mainly auditory and visual, lucid and in dreams. As a VR experience, FEVER refers to this brief hallucinatory state, acknowledging and interpreting the metaphysical process that occurs when one is within and yet removed from one’s own body, and the limits presented herein vis-à-vis body/environment and self/other. FEVER is also a virtual poem about illness and body fictions. FEVER is written and created by Karolina Markiewicz and Pascal Piron, in technical collaboration with Fabrizio Palmas, Antoine Thiry and Stefan Laimer (D). The music is created by Kevin Muhlen (L) joined by the voice of Ásta Fanney Sigurdardottir (IS) and by the narration of Elisabet Johannesdottir (L/IS).

Be A Pattern For The World
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 5:48 | Danemark | 2018

Be a Pattern for the World is acollaboration between artist group Piscine (consisting of Mark Tholander, Jens Settergren & Ida Thorhauge) and the artist duo Aeron Bergman & Alejandra Salinas. Be a Pattern for the World circulates around the concept of the chameleon. The chameleon as an abstract machine: "The chameleon, maybe. It hovers, as a turbine. An object can be monitored better by the turbine. These days anything can be imitated." The chameleon most of all stands for shape-shifting and adaptability. Adapting patterns of a given environment, while at the same time creating new patterns in the given space. The ability of changing one's appearance as a response to one's surroundings. What can be seen and what cannot; blending in and standing out; becoming distinct while also becoming part of the given space. The chameleon is the abstract machine which initiates a production of subjectivity in the relation between the individual and the surroundings, the figure and the background, the shape and the pattern, as well as the singular and the univocal.

Piscine is an exhibition phenomenon that handles solo, group and collaborative situations: a hybrid apparatus that sometimes acts as an artist group and at other times acts as a curatorial unit. Current members are: Mark Tholander, Ida Sønder Thorhauge, and Jens Settergren. Aeron Bergman and Alejandra Salinas are an artist duo who co-founded Institute for New Connotative Action: an artist run initiative, and INCA Press.

La Moderna Galerija (Musée d?Art Moderne) est l?institution nationale slovène pour l?art moderne et contemporain. Un musée qui a une double vocation, explorer et présenter l?art moderne slovène et sa tradition depuis le début du XXème siècle, explorer et exposer l?art contemporain, sa pratique et son contexte. Situé dans la ville de Ljubljana, la capitale de la Slovénie, La Moderna Galerija opère sur trois sites différents, un bâtiment principal, la Moderna Galerija proprement dite, une ancienne caserne de l?Armée Yougoslave, le Metelkova et la Mala Galerija. Une telle organisation, une telle délocalisation géographique, permet à la Moderna Galerija de spécialiser chaque bâtiment. Le Metelkova est un haut lieu de la culture alternative slovène. La Mala Galerija est un espace d?innovation où sont réalisées des expositions personnelles. Quand au bâtiment principal, il héberge la collection permanente du musée, des expositions temporaires, une bibliothèque et un centre de formation. La Moderna Galerija se voit comme un intermédiaire entre le national et l?international, entre local et global. Un lieu où se cristallise les réalités de la société moderne, à mi-chemin entre les différentes réalités géopolitiques et culturelles de l?Europe contemporaine, entre Est et Ouest, entre Nord et Sud.


Née en 1970, Bojana Pi?kur a étudié à la Faculté de Philosophie de l?Université de Ljubljana, en Slovénie, et à la Charles University de Prague, en République Tchèque, où elle obtenu un PhD en Théorie Artistique. Elle est commissaire d?exposition à la Moderna Galerija, le Musée d?Art Moderne de Ljubljana et elle effectue des recherches sur le phénomène de l?art contemporain.

Concrete Coast (Costa de Cemento)
Vidéo | dv | couleur | 25:0 | USA | Espagne | 2009

The documentary film "Concrete Coast" is about the social, cultural and environmental effects of the last bit of un-urbanized Spanish Mediterranean coast being built up for residential tourism in the Region of Murcia. Agriculture is disappearing along this 230 km long coastline and is being replaced by 60 golf courses, marinas, freeways and new large scale planned communities with 1,000,000 residences, mainly sunseeking British retirees, doubling the population of Murcia within few years. Every hour 2 hectares of land are being urbanized in Spain. The impacts of these large-scale economic and political forces are illustrated by a Spanish farming family being expropriated of their land and a retired British couple embarking on their new life in a country where they do not even speak the language. How will all of this change the culture of the region? Will the populations integrate? Will these and other Spanish farmers have to emigrate? How will the global economic crisis affect the region?

Robert Harding Pittman grew up in Boston and Hamburg, the son of a German mother and American father. After taking his undergraduate and graduate degrees in environmental engineering (U.C. Berkeley), an area of concern that continues to inform his work, he received an M.F.A. in Photography and Film/Video at the California Institute of the Arts (Cal Arts). His main interest is how different cultures interact with the environment and how they manage ?development?. Currently he is living between Germany and Spain. In Germany he is making the second film about the 750 year old east German village of Heuersdorf which is being demolished for the expansion of an open pit coal mine. In Spain he is at work on ?Concrete Coast?, a photography and documentary film project about the impact of tourism on the culture and environment of Mediterranean Spain. He is working on a new photography project, "M - 50 (Madrid)", about new suburbs being built around Madrid. He has begun work on a photography book, "Anonimization" (working title), with curator Celina Lunsford (Fotografie Forum Frankfurt), compiling his work from various countries over the past years.

Yutupis
Documentaire | hdv | couleur | 46:55 | Pérou | 2019

Yutupis starts off with the filmmaker undertaking a ritual. It evokes images, memories of a village in the Peruvian rainforest. From felling trees and fishing during the day to dancing and drinking at night. Influences from the past and contemporary times are clear: the colonization of the 16th century initiated the cross-cultural mixture that is further amplified by the ongoing of globalization.

The director, Luis Pizarro, is originally from Lima, Peru. He studied Communication Science (in Lima) and went to film school (in Ghent, Belgium). He made several short films and contributed (direction, editing, sound) to various productions (short films, documentaries, video clips etc.)

Rethinking the Raven
Création sonore | 0 | | 60:0 | USA | 2004

"In a more Cagean mode, the sound collage "Rethinking the Raven" presents echo-treated field recordings of a suburban smart guy spouting increasingly ridiculous, palsied nonsense syllables into fast-food driveup intercoms. ("Sir, can you drive to the window so we can take your order, we can`t understand you.") The track is funny on a mean spirited Jerky Boys level, but also seductive, with the sound manipulations turning the baffled or bored utterances of the franchise employees into quasi-world music. One clerk`s digitally twinned "I don`t know/I don`t know (I don`t understand what you`re saying)" becomes poignantly melodic through repetition, resembling an eerie call-and-response chant. In "Dr. Octobongopus" a bored lounge MC introduces the stage act of a polyrhythmic, multi-armed, but basically lame bongo player in a routine that is pure deadpan surrealism."

The Old Fashion
Vidéo | dv | couleur | 16:7 | Afrique du sud | 2010

The Old Fashion, is an adventure in humour, love, loss and longing for something more? a mélange of The Third Man, an advertisement for Prince Barrack Hussein?s sports water/ penis combo, strip club dance montages, mysterious villains and co-conspirators, and a certain fast food restaurant on Asstropolis. It pays homage to movie remakes and sequels, franchise food, dumbed-down politics, and mundane beauty. It is a portrait of contemporary South Africa, through the eyes of a deranged cat dictator bent on world domination.

Cameron Platter (born 1978 Johannesburg) His work is an intoxicating vision of Good vs. Evil, documenting contemporary morality through the telling of simple stories drawn and appropriated from the media, TV, films, art, history, pornography, battle scenes, politics, music, and religion. His targets and influences include Lamborghinis, Kawasakis and beautiful women in fishnets; megalomania and the mass media; James Bond and Richard Pryor; corrupt politicians; penis extension machines and strip clubs; children?s stories, crime fiction and gangster films; Southern African woodcut and craft masters; tabloid horror stories; wildlife, real life and things falling apart? Mixing traditional and new mediums, Platter creates a tableau that is a sincere homage to historical themes, an ironical take on contemporary Africa, and an ultra primitive, anti-aesthetic view on what it means to be alive today in South Africa. Recent projects include: Hard Times Great Expectations, Whatiftheworld Gallery, Cape Town; I Am Lonelyness, Hilger Contemporary, Vienna; The Old Fashion, Volta NY, New York; Black Up That White Ass II, Youngblackman, Cape Town; Dak?Art, Biennale de Dakar, 1910-2010: Pierneef to Gugulective, South African National Gallery and Art 39 Basel, Switzerland. His work is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) New York.

A video made up of a collage of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome?s sermon on the ?Power of Thoughts? as well as use sources such penis extension advertisements, visionary fast food chicken outlets, sex websites, eternal happiness, instant cash, waterfalls, abdominal machines, life solutions international, dancing dolphins, mass builder, fireworks, slogans, sub-tropical bondage, and celestial landscapes; all directed in my crude, minimalist filmic technique. The video should be viewed as an expanded, absurdist, collage; part documentary and part commentary.

Cameron Platter was born in 1978, Johannesburg. Recent exhibitions include ?Imaginary Fact, Contemporary South African Art and the Archive?, 55th Venice Biennale; ?Impressions from South Africa, 1965 to Now,? Museum of Modern Art, New York; Le Biennale de Dakar 2010, Dakar, Senegal; ?Coca- Colonization,? Marte Museum, El Salvador; and ?Absent Heroes,? Iziko South African National Gallery. Platter fills the ordinary and marginal, with incendiary new meaning. Working from everyday experience with subjects overlooked or considered delinquent, sordid and lowbrow, he reconnoiters notions and concepts on the outside fringes of South Africa?s popular culture. His work appears in the permanent collection of MoMA, New York; The FRAC des Pays de la Loire, France; and the Iziko South African National Gallery. His work has been highlighted in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Vice Magazine, NKA Journal of Contemporary African Art, Artforum, and Art South Africa.

Zona (Fragment I und II)
Fiction expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 51:16 | Autriche | 2012

The topological narrative follows the routes of an itinerant photographer and a young philosophy student, their searching movements in-between the fractures and folds of the spatio-temporal fabric of the contemporary city. These fragments started with a rereading of Andrei Tarkovsky and the brothers Strugacky’s concept of the zone, as depicted in their late 1970s science fiction script Сталкер (Stalker). We suggest that the zone — a structure outside and closed off in Сталкер — has now entered the very heart of the urban fabric. We aim to explore the precarity, porosity and violence of this biopolitical space-time, as an immanent part of the city, our bodies and desires. The narrative presents itself as an open structure, in which staged miniatures, image and sound collages, dialogue, and different searching movements meet each other; open, rampant, unresolved and contradictory — oscillating constantly between poetic meditation and discourse, diversion and gravity, quotation and philosophical speculation.

Michael Poetschko explores narratives of living/laboring/traveling/resisting within post-fordist and transnational realities, working with experimental forms of filmmaking and installation. His work has been exhibited and projected internationally, most recently at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, the Uferhallen in Berlin and Temp Art Space in New York City.

Reframing the Artist
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 35:0 | Allemagne | Pays-Bas | 2010

REFRAMING THE ARTIST deals with the stereotypical representations of visual artists in movies. The role of the artist both in fictional films and in biopics, classics of the twentieth century or recent popular films, is focused on the artist?s idiosyncratic behavior, his love affairs, his self-destruction associated with a mystification of his creative production or on encounters with other protagonists of the art world such as the collector, the art dealer, the model or the art student. Artists are almost solely painters, which reconfirms a predominant inadequate representation of visual artists in movies. In the video REFRAMING THE ARTIST fragments from approximately 50 different movies such as ?The Moderns? ?Surviving Picasso? or Vincent and Theo? are reset in the Dafen Oil Painting Village. Dafen, situated in Shenzhen, China, is the world`s largest producer of mass-produced handmade oil-on-canvas copy paintings supplying a global market. The video takes place in unmodified settings of the painters` own homes, studios, shops or galleries. There we see Dafen painters re-enacting movie scenes, in which they take over the role of a Picasso, a Van Gogh, a Pollock or several fictional artists, art collectors, critics, muses and lovers. In the ?Reframing the Artist? mass reproduction of oil paintings from Dafen and the recurrent use of artist stereotypes in the mass media film converge to a new narrative overlapping fiction and documentary. The Chinese painter is neither represented as a mere copyist nor does he apply to the notion of the ?original? artist according to our predominant definitions. REFRAMING THE ARTIST raises questions about authenticity in the context of global cultural exchange and it challenges the view of the ?exotic? Other, both the visual artist and the Chinese copy painter. The video is structured into five chapters: Artist and Authenticity, Artist and Market, Artist and Crisis, Artist and Student, Artist and Model. Painting props taken from the same original movies re-appear as copies in REFRAMING THE ARTIST.
