The Separate System
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 23:9 | Royaume-Uni | 2017

At the end of 2014 the Ministry of Justice released an announcement stating that from January 2015, “ every prisoner coming into custody will be asked if they have been a member of the armed forces ” and that “ prisons will be given new guidance about helping them during their sentence”. The announcement followed wide debate over the percentage of veterans in prison. Behind these policy contexts there also sits a wider public perception of the identity of the “ veteran ” which exists in tension with the notion of the “ offender ”. The Separate System was collaboratively produced by veterans through workshops at two local prisons with artist Katie Davies. The piece investigates the spaces of the military, custody and “ civilian ” life through the notion of work, an everyday activity that unites these worlds and is familiar to us all. The film communicates what we, as a civilian audience, perhaps do not understand about the unique set of relations, actions and responsibilities held by the people within these spaces. Created through FACT`s Adults Learning Programme, our work within the criminal justice system aims to approach the context of the prison system from a critically engaged position.


Katie Davies is a video artist exploring the construction of identities, their reflections and manipulations. Nationalism, violence and democracy form a central critique for her videos and installations, often focusing upon individuals and communities whose identities are dictated by the state; their agency to self-identify snared between political agendas and Sovereign violence. Katie is a Royal West of England Academician and was nominated for the 2016 Paul Hamlyn Award. She is a Jury member for the International competition, Short Film Festival Oberhausen, 2018 and has exhibited nationally and internationally including FACT Liverpool 2018, Kassel Dokfest, Bratislava International Film Festival and Oberhausen International Film Festival 2017 & 2015, Sarajevo Film Festival 2015, Border Visions, Connecticut, USA 2012 and The Istanbul Biennial 2009. She has contributed to several publications and her writing on practice-led research has been included in US and British publications. Katie is Senior Lecturer in Media & Cultural Production at The University of The West of England.

Bertrand dezoteux
Picasso Land
Animation | hdv | couleur | 11:6 | France | 2015

Ce projet a pour origine le célèbre ballet Parade (1917), dont les costumes et décors avaient été créés par Picasso, sur un texte de Cocteau, musique de Satie, et chorégraphie de Massine. En 1980, ce monument de l’avant-garde européenne est adapté à la télévision par Jean-Christophe Averty, réalisateur héritier du surréalisme, et pionnier de la technique d’incrustation (chroma key) en France. Picasso Land tente de perpétuer cet esprit d’avant garde en proposant un troisième opus, en 3D. Décors et personnages ont été modélisés à partir de peintures et sculptures de Picasso, formant un petit peuple hétéroclite et dansant. Pour mettre en action ces corps singuliers, leur donner vie, une chorégraphie a été créée en collaboration avec le danseur Yaïr Barelli. Il a développé un vocabulaire de gestes, de pas et d’attitudes qui furent numérisés puis injectés dans les personnages. Cette relecture de l’oeuvre de Picasso dévoile un “ Pays “, qui se construirait d’oeuvre en oeuvre, qui aurait ses propres moeurs, sa culture, son territoire.

Bertrand Dezoteux. Né en 1982, formé au Fresnoy Studio national des arts contemporains, il développe sa pratique autour de nouvelles formes audiovisuelles. À la frontière du documentaire, de la fiction et de la science-fiction, ses films s’inspirent des logiciels de modélisation 3D, pour créer des objets visuels hybrides. Il réalise ainsi “ Le Corso ” en 2008, “ L`Histoire de France en 3D ” en 2012, “ Animal Glisse ” en 2015, “ Picasso Land ” en 2016 ou encore "Super-règne" en 2017. Présenté en France et à l’étranger, le travail de B. Dezoteux interroge notre rapport aux autres, au travail ou au quotidien, notre imaginaire du futur et notre désir d’ailleurs. En 2015, il est lauréat du prix Audi talents awards pour le projet “ En attendant Mars ”, mené en collaboration avec l`Observatoire de l`espace du CNES (Centre national d`études spatiales). En 2017, l’artiste a été exposé au Palais de Tokyo (Paris) et à la Station (Nice), ses films ont été montrés au New York Film Festival et au Toronto International Film Festival. En mars 2018, il est programmé au théâtre des Amandiers (Nanterre) ; en avril, la galerie Édouard Manet (Gennevilliers) lui consacre une exposition personnelle.

Do You Speak Peking Opera?
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 6:5 | Royaume-Uni | 2017

How post-contemporary critique of post-truth post-index post-everything could look or sound like? What tools are available when language renders meaning sense-less? Do You Speak Peking Opera? is an enquiry in the state of pre-emptive post-contemporaneity, open ended, delivered to you by artificial intelligence, provoking genuine physical reaction.


Natalia Skobeeva is an internationally recognised award winning artist, based in Deptford, whose hybrid experimental practice explores ideas of transnational and multicultural existence in the post-truth society. She is a graduate of MA Fine Art, Royal College of Art, London, UK Solo shows include ” This Territory is Time ” Espronceda Art Centre, Barcelona, “ Horrors of Archiving ” in Objectief Exhibitions, Antwerp, “ Carpets in St Petersburg, former Leningrad, former St Petersburg”in the State Museum of Political History of Russia, St Petersburg, Camera Club London and Viewfinder gallery London, solo projects in Moscow, Istanbul, Brussels, Berlin and London.

Laure prouvost
DIT LEARN
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 15:44 | Royaume-Uni | 2017

In 'DIT LEARN' the viewer is enticed into an abstract, pre-verbal condition from which to rediscover the learning of language, words and their associated meanings. With a fast-paced procession of objects and images, an accompanying aural and written narrative directly implicates the viewer.


Née à Croix en 1978, la vidéaste française part à Londres pour étudier au Central Saint Martins college of Art and Design, puis au Goldsmiths College où elle obtient un MFA et s’établit dans la capitale britannique. Elle devient l’assistante de l’artiste conceptuel John Latham, qui a lui-même enseigné à la Saint Martins jusqu’en 1966. Gagnante du Turner Prize (2013), Laure Prouvost est connue pour ses films et installations multimédias luxuriants et envoûtants. Intéressée par la confusion entre les récits linéaires et les associations attendues entre les mots, les images et les significations, elle a pu dire que dans ses œuvres «fiction et réalité étaient réellement enchevêtrés». A la fois séduisants et discordants, ses films sont constitués d’un riche et presque tangible assortiment d’images, de sons, de phrases lues et écrites, qui apparaissent et disparaissent dans une succession de plans rapides. Ces plans sont souvent nichés au coeur d’installations où prolifèrent un ensemble vertigineux d’objets trouvés, de sculptures, de peintures, de dessins, de meubles, de signes et d’assemblages architecturaux, construits sur les thèmes et l’imaginaire de ses films. Prouvost n’autorise pas de contemplation passive. A travers son travail, elle s’adresse souvent directement aux spectateurs, les précipitant dans ses visions imaginaires et indisciplinées. Elle expose en 2011 à la Tate Britain puis en 2012 à la Whitechapel Gallery de Londres ainsi qu’au Festival Paris Images de Toronto. En 2013, son œuvre est présente à la Biennale d’art contemporain de Lyon et à l’Institute of Contemporary Art de Londres. En 2014 elle met en place une performance au Grand Palais à l’occasion de la FIAC. Son œuvre sera aussi présentée aux Etats-Unis au Danspace de New York ainsi qu’au Laboratorio Arte Alameda de Mexico City la même année. En 2016, son œuvre fait l’objet d’expositions au Kunstmuseum Luzern en Suisse, au MMK Frankfurt en Allemagne, au Red Brick Art Museum à Beijing. En 2009 elle remporte l’EAST International Award. Elle gagne deux années de suite l’Oberhausen Short Film Festival. En 2011, elle remporte le Max Mara Art Prize for Women, grâce auquel elle effectue une résidence à la British School à Rome et à la fondation Pistoletto de Biella. En 2013, c’est le Turner Prize qu’elle remporte pour son film Wantee.

Avalanche
Vidéo expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 16:40 | USA | 2017

Avalanche is an enhanced water beverage filtered through a human pipeline that traces the flow of water through a city and through the body. A live performance presents municipal water usage as a literal concert of bodies, a system that is improbable, arduous, and flawed. The Avalanche bottling process begins with an ice cap harvested from the Never Summer Mountain Range. The ice melts and travels through a series of human filters, eventually collecting in crystal singing bowls. The sound of this filtration is performed as a concert for a live audience, while at the same time being live broadcast back to the mountain range, causing an avalanche from the vibration of sound waves. The avalanche is bottled for consumption, while also providing new ice to begin the process again. The project consists of a one night live performance, multi-channel video and vending machine stocked with Avalanche water, all of which work together to create a mythology of the product’s source. Passing water between the city and the mountain in an endless feedback loop, IfNf`s filtration process equates the mountain spring with the trickle of water across a dirty windshield, the tears of two middle-aged men, the gargle and spit from a teenager’s mouth, juxtaposing trivial everyday gestures with the looming, dark future of a changing climate.


The Institute for New Feeling is a collective founded by Scott Andrew, Agnes Bolt, and Nina Sarnelle, committed to the development of new ways of feeling, and ways of feeling new. As a group, our identity is always shifting. Borrowing aesthetics and language from wellness and tech industries, market research, speculative design, political propaganda, we assume a familiar yet fragile voice of authority. IfNf has recently shown work at The Getty Center, LA, Ballroom Marfa, TX, MoMA, NY, Istanbul Modern, Turkey, MAAT, Lisbon, Whitechapel Gallery, London, Hammer Museum LA, Fundacion PROA, Buenos Aires, Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart, Jardin Essential, Bruxelles, Recess, NY, and Mwoods, Beijing. IfNf has been featured in Frieze, Art in America, Vogue Italy, Huffington Post, SFMoMA, Creators Project, FlashArt, and Hyperallergic.

Moon Over Da Nang
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 15:0 | Allemagne | 2016

Towards the end of the 1960ies the world witnessed the war in Vietnam through what can still be called one of the largest ever TV war spectacles. At the very same time American astronauts looked down on Earth from the moon for the first time in human history. Although initially intended as affirming American dominance in the cold war this first view on the blue planet as whole created an image that quickly became the icon of ecological thought and central to a whole movement of counter culture. MOON OVER DA NANG draws these two contrasting media events together in Melhu’s own quirky and experimental quest to come to grips with the country’s post-socialist present in the throughway between the past and the future. Interviews with residents and dreamlike associative sequences are mixed with the documentation of the production process of a life-sized marble sculpture in Da Nang, a city in central Vietnam, which, 40 years after the end of the war in Vietnam, is being discovered by international investors for the tourism business. Traces of the past and of the war are gradually covered up by the construction of hotels and luxury resorts. At the end of the film the marble sculpture receives its finishing touches and turns out to be an Apollo astronaut.


Bjørn Melhus was born in Kirchheim unter Teck in 1966 and studied Fine Arts with a major in Film/Video at the Braunschweig University of Art from 1990 to 1997. He was a fellow of the DAAD at the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles and of the federal state of Lower Saxony in ISCP, New York. He participated in exhibitions at the Whitney Museum in New York, the 8th International Biennial of Istanbul, the Venice Biennial in (1998/2011), the FACT in Liverpool, the Serpentine Gallery in London, the Sprengel Museum in Hanover, the Ludwig Museum in Cologne, the ZKM in Karlsruhe, the Denver Art Museum, as well as others. Bjørn Melhus has been a professor of Fine Arts/Virtual Realities at the School of Art and Design Kassel since 2003. Bjørn Melhus has been living and working in Berlin since 1987. In his short films and installations, Bjørn Melhus focuses on general global ideas and trends, the critical reception of mass media, as well as the direct effects they have on people. He uses footage from film and television excessively and deconstructs stereotypical themes, figures and patterns of perception through means of exaggeration. At the same time, he breaks up a seemingly fixed relationship between media and audience, thus opening up the view on the essentials of human interaction.

Mauricio saenz
The Origin of Stones
Vidéo expérimentale | hdv | couleur et n&b | 4:53 | Mexique | 2016

“ The origin of stones ” questions the ideals of the past and their validity in the present through the decay and fall of monuments built to preserve a historic memory. With a text based on a debate that puts in doubt the efficiency of a scale used to document the proportion and appearance of archaeological remains, this work looks to ruins as elements of live content linked to the present and emphasizes the powerful yet fragile nature of the narratives of history. Thus, it mirrors the impossibility to imagine the promises of a future on the ruins of the recent past, representing in this way a model of a fallen utopia.


Mauricio Saenz (b. 1977, Matamoros, Mexico) is a visual artist and filmmaker with a practice between experimental and docufiction. He obtained a master`s degree in artistic production from the Polytechnic University of Valencia in Spain and has exhibited his audiovisual work in festivals such as Stuttgarter Filmwinter and European Media Art Festival in Germany where he was also nominated for the Dialogpreis of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He was recently nominated for the LOOP Discover Award in Barcelona for outstanding international video artists.

A Feeling for Leaving
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur et n&b | 9:28 | USA | 2017

Thinkof anybody who goes anywhere or stays at home and is an American and you will realize that it is something strictly American to conceive a space that is filled with moving. "Gertrude Stein" Stay all night, stay a little longer, Dance all night, dance a little longer, Pull off your coat, throw it in the corner, Don`t see why you can`t stay a little longer. Lyrics by Bob Wills and Tommy Duncan In this video we see a world from a rearview mirror, passing along 19th century settlement trails, monuments, gas stations, deserts, dinners, postwar suburbs and a movie motel drive-in. Our histories are visible, mobile and vanishing. Landscapes rush by Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah. Destinations include a dinosaur along a highway, a ranch converted into a UFO observation park, an abandoned movie drive-in, a western parade in Wyoming and lonely stretches of road. There is music and radio along the way, communities floating among the airwaves. Ferde Grofé’s musical sunrise over the Grand Canyon accompanies a tourist’s panoramic journey meandering westward to the Westlake District of Daly City, California. Meanwhile, an immigrant embarks on a train trip across Amerika toward employment, belonging, and The Nature Theater of Oklahoma.

Sokun Al Sulhufat (Turtles Are Always Home)
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 11:39 | Liban | 2016

I left Lebanon in 2006. For the past 10 years I lived in 7 countries, 10 cities, and 21 homes. I slept in 21 beds, cooked in 21 kitchens, cleaned 21 bathrooms, wrote on 21 desks and locked 21 doors behind me. I packed all of my life into two suitcases and a backpack. The rest stayed behind. Somebody somewhere uses my bed, somebody somewhere has my shoes, somebody somewhere maybe remembers me in those fragmented traces of mine. I was there. But now I am here. In Qatar. In a fake Venice with colorful houses. Houses have memories too. They hide them under their windowsills, tuck them in layers of paint and sometimes whisper them to birds passing by. I wonder whose memories will these houses keep. I live here but I am unable to leave a trace. I try to attach myself to the walls, dirty them, mark them… but I fail. They are constantly cleaned, watched and protected. I caress them instead. And I film them, lest I forget. Home is where the heart is, they say. I disagree. My heart is everywhere. It left with the music. Like a turtle, I am always home.


Rawane Nassif is a Lebanese/Canadian filmmaker and anthropologist. She works in research and films often addressing subjects such as space, traditions, identities, displacement and memory. Rawane has directed social documentaries and wrote a book on the politics of memory in Lebanon, worked with immigrants and indigenous people in Canada, conducted visual research on nomadic traditions in Kyrgyzstan, taught anthropological courses in Tajikistan, wrote children’s books based on oral histories in Honduras and worked as a film researcher with the Doha Film Institute and the National Museum of Qatar. Her short film, “ Turtles are Always Home ” screened at numerous film festivals including the Berlinale, AFI Docs, Toronto, Camden, and RIDM. She is currently completing a mentorship with the “ Masters in Experimental Cinema, Creative Documentaries, and Video Creation ” Program at the Transforming Arts Institute in Madrid.

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 builder’s 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)


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.

Fragile
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 7:46 | Italie | 2016

The video, Fragile (2016) produced by the Museo Reale Galleria Sabauda in Turin, staged a young man`s visit to the gallery halls in the presence of a peacock. Walking among the masterpieces of antiquity, symbolic objects of archetypal beauty, the presence of the peacock underlines the essential precariousness of the living animal and its impairment that renders it inapt to represent its nature. The image is highly suggestive because it’s made even more dramatic due to the emptiness of the halls, facing the perpetual immobility of the painted characters. The main theme of these works is the concept of "cure": the old animal, object of the care of its master, is a metaphor of the combination of a faded vanity and the eternal journey into beauty, a trip defined by Rainer Maria Rilke as "the tremendous at its beginning." The fragility of art, to which the title of the work refers to, engages the observer`s gaze and warns of the necessity to provide protection of art and cultural heritage. A metaphor that reminds us of the need to preserve and care for our artistic and cultural heritage as a form of resistance to time and carelessness of man. In 2018, when Europe dedicates itself to Cultural Heritage, encouraging public institutions to celebrate their relevance and value for the cultural development of society, the artistic discourse by Masbedo is consistently aligned with this theme, showing how contemporary artists relate themselves with the art of the past and how history of art can be a source of inspiration for new generations.


MASBEDO (Nicolò Massazza, 1973, Milan - Iacopo Bedogni, 1970, Sarzana) started their journey in 1999, focusing on the potential of video art and video installation. Developed around the theme of incommunicability in contemporary society, their research has produced both, intimate works and more socio-political and anthropological-cultural productions. Their aesthetic approach presents pictorial aspects and the realization of their videos pursues the goal of involving the viewer in the space created by the moving images through immersive installations. Their work, in fact, is a synthesis of theatre, performance, space, architecture and video / cinema. They have been included in solo shows in important museums and foundations both in Italy and abroad, as well as in various film festivals, and their works are included in relevant private and public collections: MART, Rovereto, Italy; Fondazione Merz in Turin, Italy; GAM - Galleria d’Arte Moderna in Turin, Italy; MACRO - Museo di Arte Contemporanea in Rome, Italy; DA2 - Centro de Arte Contemporáneo, Salamanca, Spain; CAAM Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderna, Las Palmas, Spain; CAIRN Centre d’Art, Digne-les-bains, France; Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel.

Things Stay for a While
Documentaire | hdv | couleur | 10:0 | Egypte | 2017

Ahmad Ali Badawi is a writer, translator, researcher and self-described ” eternal student ” who lives in Cairo. `Things Stay For A While` (2017) shadows Ahmad, inside his downtown apartment as he researches the evolution of bird wings. In pursuit of more particulars, he treks the streets, passing politically charged murals from the aftermath of the revolution to the city’s Agricultural Museum, which houses an array of taxidermied birds and other winged specimens. As he drifts from one display to the next, a visual analogy for the “ eternal student ”“ meaning, one who has an insatiable desire for knowledge and intrigue”comes to pass: one specimen unexpectedly takes flight.


Bryony Dunne (1984) is an Irish Visual Artist based in Athens. Before relocating to Greece she lived and worked in Cairo for five years. Building on her background in documentary photography and visual anthropology, she explores the intersections between humanity and the natural world often merging documentary and fiction.

Another Day after Eternity
Installation vidéo | 4k | couleur | 8:38 | Canada | 2017

L'oeuvre rend visible une forme de résurgences de l'expèrience traumatique au sein de la création d'environnements 3D représentatifs de la vie domestique. Sans jamais montrer l'horreur des évènements, elle participe de processus de recontextualisation et réinterprétation d'archives web d'attentats terroristes, ceux survenus notamment à Paris (2016), Bruxelles (2016) et Istambul (2017). Elle engage l'expression d'une temporalité humaine écartelée entre la réalité de l'événement et sa médiation faisant signe quelque part entre la vie, le son et l'image.

Martin Beauregard est artiste professionnel et professeur-chercheur-créateur à l’Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue. Martin Beauregard est diplémé de l’Université du Québec à Montréal (PhD en études et pratiques des arts) et de l’Université Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne (PhD en arts plastiques et musicologie), ainsi que de l’école des Beaux-arts de Bordeaux (Master en arts et médias). Son travail artistique a été présenté dans de nombreuses institutions, notamment au Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal (Montréal, Canada), Location One (New York, Etats-Unis), au Capc Musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux (Bordeaux, France) et à l’Asahi Art Square (Tokyo, Japon).

Where Did It All Start?
Animation | hdv | couleur | 1:10 | Suède | 2017

The simplest of questions. An overwhelming silence. The conundrum of existence.


Born in 1971. Grew up on Gotland in the Baltic Sea. Education includes the University Collage of Arts Crafts & Design as well as the Royal Collage of Art, both in Stockholm. Lives in Nacka just outside of Stockholm. Working mainly with video and animation and moving between narrative and non-narrative works. Has created around 40 films. Also experimenting with different forms of music and sound installations. Notable exhibitions include P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York, Kunst-Werke Berlin, CaixaForum in Barcelona and Museo de Colecciones ICO in Madrid, as well as solo exhibitions at MMC Luka in Pula Croatia, ak28 in Stockholm and Uppsala Art Museum in Sweden.

Una investigación interrumpida de R (An Interrupted Investigation of R)
Fiction expérimentale | 4k | couleur | 13:50 | Argentine | 2017

"An interrupted investigation of R" is an epistemological sci-fi detective short film. This project is an adaptation of Stanislav Lem`s “ The Investigation ”. The work pretends to contribute to the regime of Extra Science Fiction, as was developed by Quentin Meillassoux. A synopsis of the book that I found at Goodreads: "An officer at Scotland Yard is assigned to investigate an eerie case of missing-and apparently resurrected-bodies. To unravel the mystery, Lt. Gregory consults scientific, philosophical, and theological experts, who supply him with a host of theories and clues". I used that minimal narrative as an excuse to address some of this questions and ideas. What would happen if experimental science became impossible and cannot deploy its theories? What exactly guarantees for us, but also what convinces us that natural laws will still be valid in the next moment? How is the bound in between science and fiction? It seems like the science allows the construction of a storyline because stories happen in ordered worlds. The way the merger of the virtual and the digital elicits a context of indetermination. How will the construction of different models of representation affect our perception of a specific phenomenon?


Alan Segal (AR), born in 1985, he studied at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Program for Artist and Curators, Universidad Di Tella, and is currently completing his master in Fine Arts at The Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College. He uses drawings, video, coding and sound to design works that reveal alternative systems of communicative convention. “Tutorial ” was his last solo show at Zmud. Recent group exhibitions include "A word is a shadow that falls on a lot of things" at Ausstellungsraum Klingental (Basel, Switzerland), “Praising the surface ”at the Hesell Museum of Art (New York, USA) and “ To push an ism ” at MAMBA (Buenos Aires Museum of Modern Art). He also shows his work in international biennials; "Visual Resonances" at the BIENALSUR (the South America contemporary Art Biennial) and "Draft Systems" at The WRO Biennale (Wroclaw, Poland).

Re-rupture
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 15:19 | Taiwan | 2017

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.

Mountain Plain Mountain
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 21:33 | Espagne | 2017

Deepening confusion becomes a delightful experience watching this collaborative film by Daniel Jacoby and Araki Yu. The documentary observes the idiosyncratic sounds and rhythms of Ban’ei, a rare kind of draft horse race that takes place only in Obihiro, Japan. Capturing the behind-the-scenes operations of the race, the film gradually twists itself into a knot as the excited voices of the commentators merge into a frenzy of gibberish.


Daniel Jacoby (1985, Lima, Peru) and Yu Araki (1985, Yamagata, Japan) met in 2010 during a residency at Tokyo Wonder Site (Tokyo). Both their works have been highly influenced by their journeys. Fiction is often used by them as a tool to comprehend the puzzling cultural and socio-political differences across destinations. Their first film made as a duo is Mountain Plain Mountain (2017). This premiered and was awarded at the Ammodo Tiger Short Competition at IFFRotterdam in 2018. Daniel Jacoby graduated in fine arts from the University of Barcelona and furthered his education at the Städelschule in Frankfurt. Recent exhibitions include venues like Fundació Joan Miró (Barcelona), CRAC Alsace (Altkirch), EYE Film Institute (Amsterdam), The Banff Centre (Alberta), Kunsthal Chalottenborg (Copenhagen), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof (Hamburg), 1646 (The Hague), Trafó (Budapest), and the 11th Cuenca Biennial (Ecuador). His films have been programmed in festivals such as 25FPS (Zagreb), BIM (Buenos Aires), MIEFF (Moscow), Go Short (Nijmegen), Sheffield Fringe (UK), Videobrasil (Sao Paulo), Les Rencontres Internationales (Paris), and Cairo Video Festival (Cairo). His film Jagata won the National Competition at Lima Independiente (Peru) in 2016. Daniel has participated in residency programs at Delfina Foundation (London), Jan van Eyck Academie (Maastricht), Casino Luxembourg (Luxembourg), Tokyo Wonder Site (Tokyo), among other places. Yu Araki received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture from Washington University in St. Louis, U.S.A. in 2007, and completed his Master of Film and New Media Studies from Tokyo University of the Arts in 2010. In 2013, he was selected to participate in Tacita Dean Workshop hosted by Fundacio´n Boti´n in Santander, Spain. His films have been programmed in international festivals such as NIFF (Thailand), BFI London Film Festival (U.K.), The Weight of Mountains (Iceland), International Short Film Festival Oberhausen (Germany), Dong Fang (Italy), and MIFF (Russia). Recent exhibitions and screenings include Okayama Art Summit (Okayama, Japan), Yokoha- ma Museum of Art (Yokohama, Japan), The Benaki Museum (Athens, Greece), JIKKA (Tokyo, Japan), The Container (Tokyo, Japan), Washingtown (Mito, Japan), ZKM (Karlsruhe, Germany), CAST (Tasmania, Australia), Tate Modern (London, U.K.), A*DESK (Barcelona, Spain), no.w.here (London, U.K.), Alternative Space LOOP (Seoul, South Korea), and Para/Site Art Space (Hong Kong). Araki has participated in residency programs at SNEHTA (Greece), Nes Artist Residency (Iceland), and Tokyo Wonder Site Aoyama (Japan), among other places. He lives and works in Tokyo, Japan.

Summa summarum
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur | 5:46 | Lituanie | 2017

The characteristics of our subconsciousness has its own model of reality. Human-being is trying to distinguish where simulation starts and ends. But the self-reflection of consciousness is full of absurdity itself... What is REAL? And what is REALLY happening?

It Was Still Her Face
Film expérimental | hdv | noir et blanc | 8:0 | Allemagne | 2017

Portraits of women. And men, who are spellbound by them. The painted portraits, a recurring motif of film noir as well as European postwar cinema, aesthetically stand in a tradition of an outmoded academic style that is bent on striking likeness with the model. They are revenants, omens of absence, metaphors for loss and death, objects of desire and fixation, which mesmerize both the viewer in the movie and in front of the screen.

Working almost exclusively with animated art, mostly as single channel videos. Through animating my own drawings, I am mediating tales of human relationships and not shying away from life’s darker and more destructive sides. Since 1994 I’ve created over 30 videos, works that generally are narrative and deal with issues like domestic violence, power structures and human behaviours. My works have all been screened at numerous occations worldwide and I’m represented at several art institutions, among them Moderna Museet in Stockholm and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.

Overlook
Animation | hdcam | couleur | 5:27 | Finlande | 2017

Impossible architecture, an ancient burial ground and a lure for psychotic janitors were the building blocks of Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. In this story vignette, chaos animators Pink Twins add zero gravity and a rupture in space-time continuum to the mix and serve a taster of subtle cosmic horror.


Pink Twins is a duo of visual artists and electronic musicians, brothers Juha (b. 1978) and Vesa Vehviläinen (b. 1974), based in Helsinki, Finland. Active as Pink Twins since 1997, their videos work on the crossing of visual art and music. Live Pink Twins deliver improvised digital soundscapes, often combined with video screenings. Pink Twins have shown their works in exhibitions and festivals in all continents and performed audiovisual live shows through Europe, Americas, Asia and Australia.
