A Visitor
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 13:44 | Allemagne | 2017

A Visitor, 2017, takes as a starting point the modernisation of a somewhat neglected memorial site at a former mass killing site in Germany. The video documents the replacement of older information panels and the changes to the landscape over an extended period of time. The video also draws on both a chance encounter with a beekeeper sent to contain and collect a “ stray ” swarm of honey bees at the site, and an archive interview conducted by historians at the nearby home of Maria Seidenberger. Seidenberger was a teenager at the time of the mass killings. She secretly helped concentration camp prisoners to smuggle and hide items that included clandestine photographs, letters, a heart and a death mask. The emerging portrait of the site exposes a multiplicity of narratives and reflects on themes such as subversion, guilt and remembrance. The persistence of material objects is questioned while resisting a linear view of history and memory.

Jamie Buckley is an artist who is originally from Kerry, Ireland but is now based in Munich, Germany. He completed an MFA at the University of Ulster, Belfast in 2012. Screenings and exhibitions include: LUX, London (2018); AMINI, Belfast (2017, 2015); Rencontres Internationales, Paris/Berlin (2014, 2012); Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast (2013); Bloomberg New Contemporaries, Institute of Contemporary Art, London and Liverpool Biennial, Liverpool (2012).

Laura J. padgett
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur et n&b | 2:19 | Allemagne | 2017

We see Max Horkheimer buying newspapers, we hear Hannah Arendt speaking about the mother tongue and making the invisible tangible. We also see Frankfurt am Main during the great (re)construction boom of the 1960s. We see demonstrations on the Römerberg and the presence of the American Forces in the Federal Republic of Germany during the cold war as well as scenes after the apprehension of members of the Red Army Faction. Housing shortages, urban development, youth and their future, guest workers, consumer society: these topics are repeatedly presented and discussed in the Hessen Schau news program from this period. The film deals with the concept of democracy, of having a voice and the contiguity between private and public space. These boundaries, which are in the process of dissolving, are made clear the storytelling in this film as fundamental strands of our social being. Laura J. Padgett’s found footage film SOLITAIRE is made from documentary film material and radio broadcasts of the late 1950s until 1972. It was culled exclusively from the Hessian Broadcasting Corporation’s (hr) archives.

The artist’s work explores unoccupied spaces, both real and imaginary, to reveal truths that are often overlooked. Like her subject, her work itself occupies the spaces between photographic storytelling and installation, between language and image, between history and current affairs. While she uses photographic media the results are always more than photographic objects. Since the nineties Padgett has produced a wide-ranging body of work, adopting various genres such as architectural photography, still life and urban street photography while exploring our ideas of communal and cultural identity. Laura J. Padgett’s work is often displayed in public spaces and plays with scale, material and the way we interpret images and their relation to history. The breadth of her work demonstrates an ability to move fluidly between genres, based on her background in painting, art history and architecture. Born in Cambridge, USA, Laura J. Padgett studied painting, film and photography at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn New York. Her conceptual approach to her projects stems from this background. Her further studies in film and art history, with Peter Kubelka at the Städelschule and at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, respectively, broadened her approach. Laura J. Padgett exhibits internationally, and her work can be found in state and corporate collections such as the DZ-Bank ArtCollection, Frankfurt am Main. Her work is in the permanent collections of Museo Museion, Bolzano, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, Museum Wiesbaden and the Städel Museum, Frankfurt am Main. She is the 2017 recipient of the Marielies-Hess-Art Award. Laura J. Padgett lives and works in Frankfurt am Main.

Ghost Shelter/6
Vidéo expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 5:49 | Nouvelle-Zélande | 2017

Ghost Shelter/6: encompasses a variety of significant post-industrial structures all at the edge of metropolitan regions in various states of ruin. They are created from 3D scans and drone footage, rendered and animated in 3D as discrete virtual entities simulating islands of memory (as in Tarkovsky’s Solaris). 1.Chemiewerk Rüdersdorf, an abandoned chemical factory in the former German Democratic Republic 2.The Teufelsberg, a NSA listening station in Berlin built on top of a man-made hill constructed from the rubble of WW2 Berlin. 3.Immerath, a ghost town in western Germany removed in 2017 by the energy giant RWE for the expansion of their open cast coal mine, Garzweiler. 4.The Martha Project, a NZ open cast gold mine whose mining operations ground to a halt due a major landslide collapsing the north wall of the mine. 5.Domes of Case Grande, an incomplete and abandoned futuristic computer facility in Arizona. 6.The Sleeping Beauty Castle, the centrepiece of the California Disneyland Park, modelled on the late 19th century Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany.

Brit Bunkley’s current art practice includes public art, sculpture, installation, and the creation of “impossible” moving and still images and architecture designed using computer 3D modelling, video and image editing programs, with content emphasizing majestic landscapes, human revelry and an oblique sense of apocalyptic anxiety tempered with whimsy and irony. Brit is represented in numerous international collections and has completed a dozen permanent and temporary public art projects. In addition, he has received several grants and fellowships including a Wallace Trust grant in NZ; a New York State Fellowship (CAPS) grant, a New York State Council on the Arts project grant, a USA National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and the American Academy Rome Prize Fellowship. Recent international group exhibitions and screenings include Sanctioned Array-Other2 Specify at the White Box gallery in NYC, Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid at the Centre Pompidou and at the Reina Sofia National Museum, Madrid, Spain; The Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; FILE 2012 at the SESI' Cultural Centre Sao Paulo, Brazi;, the Berlin International Director?s Lounge 2014 and the Moscow Museum of Modern Art where he won an award. Bunkley?s most recent solo exhibition, Social Realism opened at the Sanderson Contemporary Art, Auckland, NZ November 2014- with forthcoming solo exhibition November 2015. Recent video exhibitions and festivals include FILE 2015; Fiesp Cultural Center, Sao Paulo, Brazil; the International Video Art Festival “ Now&After ” MINI VIDEO'15, Schusev Museum of Architecture, Moscow, Russia, and International short- and longfilm videodays 2015 and 2016, G.A.S-station, Berlin, Germany

Thadeusz tischbein
Schneewittchen (Snow White)
Vidéo | hdv | couleur et n&b | 19:40 | Allemagne | 2017

What role can culture play, when dead bodies are not burried after death, but being used for other purposes “Snow White” examines this question, using stalinist Mausoleums, preparated animals in Natural History Museums and relics in churches. What form of story telling is being used to hide actions and translate them?

Thadeusz Tischbein is a Germany-based video artist. He studied between 2008 and 2016 in Leipzig, Braunschweig (Germany) and Bucharest (Romania) with Candice Breitz, Clemens von Wedemeyer and Günther Selichar. His 2017 video essay SNOW WHITE (2K Cinemascope, 19:40 min) is a journey to the dead bodies in mausoleums, churches and museums. In THE ATLAS OF THE WOUNDED BUILDINGS (HD, 12:56 min, 2016) he is trying to examine narrations written in bullets holes. INVENTORY (HD, 16:9, 5:49 min) from 2015 is talking about the strange living room of so called office plants.

Jonathan perel
5-T-2 Ushuaia
Doc. expérimental | 4k | couleur | 4:0 | Argentine | 2016

Adolfo Scilingo was the only military officer to confess the dictatorship crimes. Among the details he gave of the way the genocide worked, throwing prisoners from planes into the water to their death, Scilingo specifies the model that was used in the flights he participated in: an Electra. Of the eight Electras that belonged to the Argentine Navy, five of them were bought in 1982. Only the three bought in 1973 could have been used in the flight that Scilingo describes. Those three Electras are at present in Argentina. This film of Jonathan Perel searches cartographically the traces of those planes.

Jonathan Perel, born in 1976, lives and works in Buenos Aires. He attended a degree in Arts at the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters (University of Buenos Aires). He directed the feature films Toponimia (2015), Tabula Rasa (2013), 17 Monumentos (2012) and El Predio (2010), and the short films Las Aguas del Olvido (2013), Los Murales (2011) and 5 (cinco) (2008). Two times awarded with the Metropolitan Fund for the Arts, his films have been screened and awarded in numerous international film festivals, such as: Viennale, IFFR Rotterdam, FIDMarseille (Prix Camira), BAFICI, YIDFF Yamagata, Rencontres Internationales Paris/Madrid/Berlin (Palais de Tokio & Haus der Kulturen der Welt), First Look (Museum of the Moving Image), Porto/Post/Doc, Underdox, La Havana.

Deux faisceaux blancs groupés et rotatifs
Fiction expérimentale | 4k | couleur | 24:41 | France | 2017

Il est dit que certaines tribus indiennes pensaient que nous marchions vers le passé avec l`avenir derrière nous, parce que le passé est quelque chose qui est en face de nous, nous pouvons le voir, alors que l`avenir serait derrière nous, comme un point aveugle, invisible et inconnu... Ils disaient que les tâches blanches (les étoiles) que nous apercevons dans le ciel étaient des trous par où la lumière de l`univers entrait et que l`obscurité n`y existait pas. La première chose que nous voyons, si nous arrivons depuis l`Amérique en bateau, est le sémaphore de Créac`h. nous pouvons voir une lumière qui annonce la terre proche, ce sont les yeux de l`ancien continent, le faisceau d`une étoile artificielle qui toutes les 10 secondes jette des éclairs de lumière pour montrer la voie aux voyageurs de la mer, qui viennent souvent du Nouveau Monde, ou de la fin du monde, le Finistère... L`autre bout du monde... Ces lumières indiquent la terre ou la fin de celle-ci, elles sont les signaux de référence du monde, les différentes constellations qui portent en elle la mémoire de leur propre lumière, indiquant leur passé et leur avenir... Dans le présent.

Audrius mickevicius
Pavyzdingas elgesys_2 (Exemplary Behaviour_2)
Installation vidéo | 4k | couleur | 10:0 | Lituanie | 2017

A few years ago my elder brother was killed by two men. One of the murderers escaped punishment while the second, who alone took the blame for the crime, was later released from prison for an exemplary behaviour. This made me decide to start a socio-artistic research regarding what “exemplary behaviour” means in the case of a murderer, when and how killers behave exemplarily. In summer 2014 I started to develop feature-length creative documentary “Exemplary Behaviuor”. Logline of the documentary says: The documentary explores the paradox of exemplary behaviour in murderers currently serving life sentences in Vilnius’ Lukišk?s prison and hoping to return to society. “Exemplary Behaviour” is a journey of transformation for the author, the murderers, and society who are searching for tolerance among humans. Now the documentary developed into a big scale socio-artistic transmedia project. “Exemplary Behaviour” is a project that seeks to create an emotionally and visually strong, thoughts provoking spaces that are meant to encourage tolerance to murderers. Tolerantia in Latin means ability to bear hardship, to be patient. Today many Europeans still tend to lack tolerance towards other ethnicities, immigrants, prisoners, unorthodox thinking, etc. In this project, the prisoner becomes a metaphor for “the other”. The main goal is to encourage tolerance of “others”. Video installation “Exemplary Behaviour” is an extended format of the documentary of the same title. It concentrates on a film element called healing sequence. Film’s healing sequences are hypnotic episodes, that are meant to awaken viewers’ imagination and are related to scientific phenomenon called “Prisoner’s Cinema”. Prisoner’s cinema is mainly reported by prisoners kept in dark cells for long periods of time. It’s an experience of seeing light without light actually entering the eye. It is a visual hallucination of light created by human brain that tries to compensate for lack of stimuli and the resulting monotony

Audrius Mickevi?ius is a Lithuanian film director, interdisciplinary artist (video art, photography, architecture, installations, graphics, sound, writing), and a professor in the Department of Media Art at the Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts, a guest lecturer in European universities. He completed his architectural sudies in Vilnius (1988) and visual communication studies in Copenhagen (1996). Audrius became obsessed with cinema at a young age. In 1983 he made his first 8 mm film “Requiem for Quartet”. Since then Audrius has made 17 more films. In recent years he created several experimental, documentary, and fiction films, which were screened in various international film festivals and MoMA, New York. Since 2010 the film director has been a member of the Lithuanian Filmmakers Union. He works and lives in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Elias heuninck
Doc. expérimental | 4k | noir et blanc | 11:11 | Belgique | 2015

Curious about creating a new image quality, Elias Heuninck made a digital camera. A very simple one. Instead of using a complex sensor to capture the whole image in a fraction of a second, it builds up the image pixel by pixel by making one simple measurement at a time. The camera starts at the top left corner and works its way to the bottom right one, just as you are reading this text. To get the information for each position, the camera shoots a short pulse of laser light towards its subject and waits for the light-echo to return. It is then able to find the distance between itself and the object that reflected the light. The collected measurements do not show anything recognisable yet. The data has to be translated first in order to be visible as a greyscale image. With an exposure time of four days (and up to four weeks), it is not the most practical camera around, but it allows Elias to work directly with the building blocks of the picture itself. The resulting images are digital by nature, yet the visual resemblance with prints from the early days of photography is striking. Whereas the conventional camera is a darkroom that captures light, this camera is more like a lighthouse. Since every point in the image is a distance measurement, the image becomes a map. The video is a slideshow of scenes and letters. The letters are selected from an archive of the correspondence of William Henry Fox Talbot, a pioneer in negative-positive photography.

Elias Heuninck (1986) studied media art at the School of Arts in Ghent. He got interested in the use of a contemporary form of the landscape-image for various experiments. His works do sometimes involve different media, but they always touch on the material of film and the notion of cinema. He gently disorients the audience by changing the perspective in space, on paper, or in a digital data file.

Deep Dive
Création numérique | 0 | couleur | 7:35 | Pays-Bas | 2016

Deep Dive offers an endless zoom into a picture, revealing an infinitely detailed imaginary world that emerges from the original image. While zooming, the image is constantly being refined in real-time, and the viewer can steer this process by tracking points of interest with the cursor. Each new `dive` starts with a randomly downloaded picture from the online WikiMedia archive.

The artists couple Driessens & Verstappen have worked together since 1990. They attempt an art in which spontaneous phenomena are created systematically. Art that is not entirely determined by the subjective choices of a human being, but instead is generated by autonomously operating processes. In addition to working with natural processes, the couple develops computer programs for artificial growth and evolution. An important source of inspiration are the self-organising processes in nature which continuously create original forms. Works of Driessens & Verstappen are in collections a.o. Centre Pompidou Paris, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam. They exhibited at museums and galleries a.o. Kröller-Müller Museum Otterlo, IVAM Institute Valencia, Neue Pinakothek München, Eyebeam New York, Young Projects Los Angeles. The artists couple gave presentations at conferences such as Siggraph Los Angeles, Second Iteration Melbourne. In 1999 and 2001 they have won the VIDA award with their Tickle robot projects in an international competition for Art & Artificial Life. In 2013 the couple received the Witteveen+Bos Art+Technology Award for their entire oeuvre. Driessens & Verstappen are represented by DAM gallery Berlin.

Pasajes IV
Vidéo | mov | couleur | 25:0 | Argentine | 2017

In Pasajes IV the idea follows the same narrative, concept and structure as in the other videos from the series. In the previous three Pasajes video works a formula repeats on different backdrops: a character unites places through gateways, doors, stairs and roads which are otherwise spatially disconnected from each other. This is the geography of a story expressed in an alteration of normalcy. In this formulation of Pasajes IV, the video explores the landscape of Patagonia. Crisscrossing this territory in search for differences within the landscape, a character as a guide, unites different territories disconnected in their geography, as essential pieces of a puzzle to understand this region’s present topography and history.

Sebastián Díaz Morales was born in Comodoro Rivadavia, Argentina, in 1975 and now lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He attended the Universidad del Cine de Antin in Argentina from 1993-1999, the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam from 2000-2001 and Le Fresnoy Studio des arts contemporains in Roubaix, France from 2003-2004. He has had solo exhibitions in the USA, Mexico, and numerous cities in Europe, and his work has been supported by a number of grants and awards. Díaz Morales uses a number of different formal strategies to create his videos, ranging from the digital manipulation of appropriated news clips to lengthy, film-like narrative works made from footage filmed by himself. Díaz Morales explores the relationship between large-scale socio-political power dynamics and individual action in works which create a sense of uneasiness for the viewer. His films are often somewhat surreal, establishing a tension between a depicted social reality and its representation in a visually abstract or fantasy-inflected way. Throughout his works, multiple forms of dependence are explored, including dependent relationships between people, the environment, and social structures.

Skulptur21 is an 8 meter long sculpture made of wood, wire, carbon fiber and acrylic paint. It consists of individual hollow elements that are loosely assembled together, partly elevated on wires, on a specially constructed table. The different elements are painted white, light and dark grey, and black. The sculpture is a structural visualisation of Hans Richter‘s experimental film Rhythmus 21. The film, created around 1921, is considered a milestone in film history and is one of the first abstract films ever made. It consists of varying geometric elements that move within the pictorial frame of the screen and change in shape. The elements also change in size, giving the impression of movement towards and away from the viewer, thereby creating a feeling of depth. Skulptur21 shows this movement in space. In the sculpture, every element of the film is shown as a three- dimensional object. Size, position and colour of the elements correspond to those shown in the film. The viewer can physically retrace the elements of the lm by walking along the sculpture. One second of the 3-minute lm corresponds to about 5 cm of the 8 meter long sculpture. The lm can be seen in its entirety at one glance. The sculpture reveals relationships between the elements over the entire duration of the film. However, the translation of the film Rhythmus 21 into sculpture goes beyond a mere reinterpretation of the lm. Skulptur21 creates a connection between the time present in film and the space of architecture. In his paintings, Hans Richter was concerned with studying movement and rhythm. Taking as a basis musical theories, he started developing horizontal rolls depicting geometric elements that gradually change in shape and thus suggest movement. Skulptur21 can likewise be read as a musical score, a linear experimental notation that visualises dynamic proportions and progressions. In addition to o ering a new way of looking at the film Rhythmus 21, the aim of Skulptur21 is to enable the viewer to make their own personal discoveries and experiences, no matter what background or field they come from.

The Number 9 Sessions
Animation | hdv | noir et blanc | 8:36 | Pays-Bas | 2017


Les dessins et vidéos de Robbie Cornelissen illustrent un univers parallèle au parfum de mondialisation où se mêle le familier et l’étrange. Il dépeint des structures architecturales extrèmement détaillées qui tant impressionnent de par leur immensité, présentent des perspectives vertigineuses ou étourdissent de par leur complexité. De ces espaces se dégage un vide angoissant que l’occasionnel ajout d’un personnage sans visage ne rend guère plus chaleureux, mais d’autant plus fascinant. Née Utrecht, au Pays-Bas, en 1954, Robbie Cornelissen est reconnu comme l’un des dessinateurs néerlandais les plus importants de sa génération. Son oeuvre a récemment fait l’objet d’un catalogue (The Capacious Memory, 2011) ainsi que de deux expositions majeures, soit au Gemeentemuseum Den Haag (La Haye) et au Centraal Museum (Utrecht)

Pierre-jean giloux
Invisible Cities
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 0:0 | Japon | 2017

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

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

Vollendete Zukunft (Future Perfect)
Fiction expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 9:0 | Allemagne | 2016

Eight protagonists distributed over Marls central Rathausplatz in front of the Skulpturenmuseum use megaphones to call out everyday phrases to each other as if they were carrying out a conversation: “ Do you think he will have won the Lotto ” or “ You will have told me much about your experiences“. Formulated in future perfect, these shouts play with the expectation that certain events will have happend by a certain time in the future. This construction has a distancing effect on the here and now and on the ease of normal everyday conversation, showing the extent to which a present experience is determined by expectations of the future. The use of megaphones seems antiquated today and thus deals ironically with present-day forms of communication. Like on the Web, banal experiences from one`s own life are communicated to an imaginary public without controls or personal contact. Marl`s Rathausplatz and the Skulpturenmuseum were constructed in the 1970s and document the city`structural rebirth, carried out with the goal of turning the urban core into a vibrant place and optimally combining diverse functions. Previously regarded as amuch lauded model solution, it is now obvious that the utopian promise of a city that radically deviates from traditional urban structures has not been fulfilled in the long run.

Born in Duisburg, Germany, lives and works in Braunschweig. From 1986 to 1989 apprenticeship as a carver (diploma), Michelstadt, from 1989 to 1996 studies at the Hochschule für Gestaltung (Academy for Visual Communication), Offenbach, as well as at the Kunstakademie (Art Academy) in Düsseldorf (1995 Masterstudent). Since 2009 Professor for Film/Video at the University of Art Braunschweig.

CHANTIER 3 - Pascal Battus-Bertrand Gauguet-Eric La Casa
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 25:27 | France | 2017

Musiciens, Pascal Battus, Bertrand Gauguet et Eric La Casa engagent des sessions improvisées sur des sites de chantier depuis 2010. Ces sessions ne sont pas destinées à être données devant un public, elles se caractérisent plutôt comme des instants de recherche intuitifs avec le milieu dans lequel ils se trouvent alors. Jouant avec la rumeur des espaces, avec les multiples sons des machines qui tournent, avec les gestes produits par les ouvriers et les paroles entendues, ils suivent une ligne indéfinie qui peut pencher d’un côté ou de l’autre de l’approche acousticienne, psycho-acousticienne, du paysage sonore, de la musique ou encore (mais plus rarement) de l’anthropologie. Ils espèrent ainsi concevoir un dispositif d’attention à partir duquel intervenir. En 2013, ils ont exploré le site de la Philharmonie Cité de la musique à Paris. S’écartant d’une approche documentariste, le film Chantier 3 déplie davantage une cartographie subjective donnant à voir et à entendre des moments de “ présence discrète ”. Ou comment, en ouvrant des interactions avec une architecture en devenir, l’écoute et l’improvisation sont à même de proposer d’autres seuils perceptifs du chantier.

Bertrand Gauguet chemine dans une pratique impliquant sans hiérarchie le sonore et le musical : comme saxophoniste improvisateur, comme compositeur de musique électronique et comme collecteur de sons. Il est engagé depuis 2010 dans une recherche intuitive aux côtés d’Eric La Casa et Pascal Battus en conduisant des sessions improvisées sur des sites de CHANTIER. Ces sessions ne sont pas destinées à être données devant un public, elles se caractérisent plutôt comme des instants d’improvisation avec le milieu dans lequel les trois musiciens se trouvent alors. En 2018, deux albums (Chantier 1 et Chantier 4), un texte (Chantier II) et un film (Chantier III) constituent les marqueurs cartographiques de ce projet.

Eleonore de montesquiou
Doc. expérimental | hdv | noir et blanc | 29:39 | Russie | 2017

Olga et Olga vivent du côté russe de la frontière entre l`Estonie et la Russie. Les deux femmes sont meilleures amies depuis des décennies, depuis que les usines ont fermé dans le pays et qu’elles se sont retrouvées à faire les marchés. Le film est un double portrait des Olgas et tout particulièrement de leurs rapports aux hommes. Notre sujet favori est l’évolution de la situation spécifique des femmes lorsque l’environnement politique et économique du pays a radicalement changé. Héroïnes du film, elles se complètent parfaitement, l’une dramatique et pessimiste, l`autre beaucoup plus drôle. Ensemble, elles donnent une image complète des femmes de cette génération.

Mauro santini
Alkaid (Vaghe stelle)
Vidéo expérimentale | 4k | couleur | 6:12 | Italie | 2017

“ Vaghe stelle ” is a seven-chaptered film, conceived as a musical album and composed of seven movements, which can be watched singly (like songs), or in the established order (like a record) or also mixing the films creating new combinations or possible narrations. The “ songs ” are seven as the principal stars of the Ursa Major. It will be a nocturnal wandering with the starry sky as a reference: an earthly pilgrimage looking for epiphanies or the drift of a hypothetical interstellar trip.

Since 2000, Mauro Santini (Fano, Italy, 1965) has composed a series of video diaries, stories told in the first person about time, memory and the search for oneself. One of these, “ Da lontano ”, won the Italian competition at the 2002 Torino Film Festival. He has participated at the international film festivals of Locarno, Venezia, Oberhausen, Jeonju, Annecy, Rencontres Paris/Berlin, DocLisboa, Cinémas Différents Paris, Montpellier, Pesaro etc In 2006, he made the feature film Flòr da Baixa and participated in 2008 with different works at “ La cité des yeux, une saison italienne ”, about Italian avant-garde cinema from 1968 to 2008, which was organized by the Cinémathèque Française in Paris and curated by Nicole Brenez and Federico Rossin.

Tir dans le miroir
Performance | hdv | couleur | 0:0 | France | 2010

Jean-François Lecourt est né dans le Perche le 3 Novembre 1958, au sein d’une famille d’agriculteurs. Il entre à 17 ans à l’école des Beaux-Arts du Mans où enseigne Gina Pane, une des artistes fondatrices du mouvement de l’art corporel. Parallèlement, il suit l’éducation d’un Maître d’Arts Martiaux en Karaté Do (la voie des mains nues) de l’école Shotokan, et s’adonne assidûment aux pratiques du Tir à l’arme à feu et du Tir à l’arc. Sa démarche est basée sur l’analogie et l’identification. Une méthode qui le conduit à la découverte de l’aspect cyclique et symétrique des processus de tir et de photographie ; d’où le concept majeur de son œuvre : Le Tir dans l’appareil photographique.Cet acte artistique est un cérémonial immuable qu’il pratique depuis 1977. Il ne s’agit pas pour lui d’illustrer une névrose autodestructrice mais de tenter, en un retour immédiat, d’abolir l’arrêt fatal du cliché. La photographie est donc ici un Art martial. Comme dans le Kuy-Do, la cible à atteindre est soi-même, le but étant la réalisation au présent de celui qui pratique. Une nouvelle création vidéo de 2010 implique une série de films qui mettent en jeu l’autoportrait, la détonation, effondrement et la renaissance du paysage, ce travail s’intitule « Les tirs dans le miroir ».

Kai kaljo
Isegi nimi on mõnikord sama (Even the Name Is Sometimes the Same)
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 1:55 | Estonie | 2017

Among others, Kai Kaljo(1877-1906) lives on in my video "Even the Name is Sometimes the Same"(1877-2017). I don´t know if we are related or not, but does it really matter? The video was made in cooperation with the photo collection of the Tallinn town museum. In the corner of a very old photograph (made in 1877) of the Tallinn Old Town Harbor, there is a person sitting, very tired. For some unknown reason, I was overwhelmed by that person. She (or he) had no idea that photography existed so she never suspected being accidentally captured by someone´s camera, neither did she suspect that, for some reason, she would become so important for somebody after 140 years.

Kai Kaljo is an artist living and working in Tallinn, Estonia. She studied painting at the Estonian Academy of Arts. Since 1997, when she completed her first video "Loser", she mainly works in video. In 2006 and 2017, she used to work at Tallinn University as a professor for contemporary art. Her video work was often described as poetic, social, humorous/tragic. In recent years, she had been working with archival images and texts.

Louidgi beltrame
El Brujo
Film expérimental | 4k | couleur | 17:29 | Pérou | 2016

El Brujo, qui signifie “ le sorcier “ en espagnol est aussi le nom d’un site archéologique mochica. C’est sur cette plage de la côte péruvienne que l’artiste a tourné une partie de son film : le guérisseur José Levis Picón y rejoue la séquence finale du film de François Truffaut Les Quatre Cent Coups (1959) où le jeune héros Antoine Doinel, interprété par Jean-Pierre Léaud, s’enfuit vers le rivage. Le célèbre acteur français prend lui aussi part à l’oeuvre de Louidgi Beltrame, filmé à la dérive dans les rues de Paris. A travers ces transpositions, l’artiste orchestre une série de déplacements, une migration des personnages, des motifs et des époques : “Antoine Doinel est déplacé dans l’espace et dans le temps, mais aussi dans le langage. En Aymara, langue indienne vernaculaire, le passé se situe devant le locuteur et le futur derrièrere lui. “ Aux lignes géométriques du paysage péruvien fait de pyramides et d’excavations répond la structure du montage filmique composée de travellings et de plans panoramiques sur la musique modulaire et synthétique du morceau Triangle (1979) de Jacno.

Louidgi Beltrame est né en 1971 à Marseille. Il vit et travaille actuellement à Paris. Il a étudié à l’école supérieure d’art et de design à Marseille, au Fresnoy-Studio National des Arts Contemporains et à la Villa Arson de Nice. Dans son travail salué par le prix SAM en 2014, Louidgi Beltrame examine les processus de constitution d’archives et de documentation de l’organisation humaine à travers le 20ème siècle, en utilisant la fiction comme une possible façon d’appréhender l’histoire. Le travail de Louidgi Beltrame se développe autour d’une déconstruction des structures formelles et narratives du cinéma, envisagé comme médium avec sa syntaxe spécifique mais aussi comme force politique qui a influencé le développement du siècle dernier et d’une documentation de l’architecture moderniste et de ses vestiges. Il filme ainsi dans des endroits définis par leur relation paradigmatique à la modernité : Hiroshima, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Chandigarh, Tchernobyl, ou Gunkanjima, île abandonnée au large de Nagasaki, vestige d’une ancienne cité charbonnière. Son travail, récemment exposé au Palais de Tokyo (2016), a été montré au Centre d’art Contemporain de Chelles (2010), au Musée d’art Moderne et Contemporain de Strasbourg (2008), au Pinchuk Art Center de Kiev (2007), à l’Atelier du jeu de Paume (Paris, 2006), au Musée d’art contemporain du Val-de-Marne, (France, 2005), au Centre Georges Pompidou, (Paris, 2005).
