In "SONE S/S 2014: Chase ATM emitting blue smoke, Bank of America ATM emitting red smoke, TD Bank ATM emitting green smoke /// Invisibility-cloaked hand gestures in offshore financial center jungle", both parts deal with transparency and opacity in relation to finance and multimedia software. The ATMs emitting branded smoke could suggest either an incorporated terrorist act or a sign of distress. The hand gestures evoke Adam Smith's concept of the invisible hand of the market, but bring it back down to earth by locating its operations and breakdowns in an offshore financial center. This video circulates on both the art/film circuit and the stock media market through sites such as Getty Images.

Sparks
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 0:0 | Pologne | 0 | 2019

Sparks is a multidimensional portrait of a forgotten but still raging contemporary European conflict: the war in Ukraine. Ukrainians are fighting each other, with government forces on one side and pro-Russian separatists on the other. Wiktoria Wojciechowska went in search of combatants and victims to recount its impact on the lives of ordinary people. The title, Sparks, refers to incandescent shrapnel that mercilessly pierces the walls of houses. Civilians living near the front call it ??????? or iskry, in Ukrainian. Looking up at a hail of burning fragments, they know it is already too late to seek shelter. The "sparks" signal death and fear. Combining photographs, collage, film, symbolic images of armed conflict with pictures and words collected from combatants, Sparks offers several perceptions of war.

Wiktoria Wojciechowska is a multimedia artist, working with photography, video, collage, installation and books. Born in 1991 in Lublin, Poland and graduated with honors from Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Lives and works in Lublin and Paris. Wiktoria Wojciechowska was the 2015 winner of the Oskar Barnack Leica Newcomer Award for Short Flashes, portraits of drenched cyclists captured on the streets of Chinese's metropolis.

This series received several awards, such as Les Rencontres d'Arles 2108 New Discovery award's public prize, Madame Figaro prize and the Prix pour la Photographie, Fondation des Treilles. "Sparks" has been featured in numerous exhibitions such as Les Rencontres d'Arles 2018 in France; Jimei X Arles festival in Xiamen, China; Krakow Photomonth in Poland, The Museum of Photography in Riga, Latvia, Exhibition Bureau in Warsaw, Poland.

In Camera Proceedings
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 4:0 | Allemagne | 2017

In Camera Proceedings is an intervention that challenges Googles Earth`s practice of scanning, modelling and storing our world. Google’s process involves a combination of aircraft imagery and satellite photos. These are pushed through image analysis and photogrammetry softwares that reconstruct 3D models of the area photographed. The 3D models created are stored on Google’s servers, they are not available for download. Our cities have been modelled digitised and then locked away. Google`s algorithms erase all inhabitants from these models. The digital world is not meant for human habitation. We can not change it edit it, or rebuild it. We can only passively observe. In Camera Proceedings challenges this. It does not accept Google`s policy. The work visualises the technical process of taking back our space, it`s a tutorial in how to take back our virtual world. A virtual drone is programmed to fly through Google Earth taking hundreds of pictures of the digital terrain. These photos are then run through the same algorithms as the images taken by Google`s aircraft. We scan the scan and then upload it to a server where any one can download it, own it and change it.

Kolonie
Installation vidéo | 4k | couleur | 24:32 | Australie | Allemagne | 2017

One of several videos made for the 2017 HIGHNESS performance and video series. Kolonie is an experimentation with the immobilising effects and machinations of the production of iconic images. Working with two bee-keepers and their bees to create a living crown on top of the artist`s head, Kolonie seeks to critically render visible the fact that a queen's image is often only fierce through the work of many hands. And a desire to rule can rot very quickly.

Melanie Jame Wolf is an Australian born artist who lives and works between Melbourne and Berlin. She makes work about economies. Sometimes solo, sometimes with friends. Always exploring systems of value and exchange, particularly as they occur in the murky field of immaterial capital… the social, the cultural, the affective. She investigates these flows as they are produced through ideas of ghosts, of gender, of pop, of myth, of morality, of sensuality, of class.

Possessed
Création numérique | hdv | noir et blanc | 9:20 | USA | 2010

With my film film, Possessed. I had a strong, slightly illicit, urge to commandeer the original train sequence from the 1931 film Possessed and make it move in such a way as to give the girl (Joan Crawford) what she thought she wanted: a position on the inside. To do that, I had to create my own (all encompassing) vehicle. By my count, the original sequence provides three orders of motion: the motion (and stillness) of the passengers on the train, the motion of the train itself, and finally the motion of the girl (Joan) outside of the train. By injecting my own additional level of motion, I was able to move Joan from her position on the outside looking in (played melodramatically as desire?s longing for the just-out-of-reach) to a position inside, looking around (played as pure vision). But maybe that?s really just my fanciful imagining and, as such, pretty much situates me in Joan?s original position: projecting desire onto a handy passing vehicle. In the end, at least this much is true: we both love staring into this passing train. In fact, we never seem to tire of it.

Untitled Elsewhere
Performance | dv | couleur | 0:36 | Nouvelle-Zélande | USA | 2008

Workman prend une voie peu orthodoxe, en bas de l'escalier ? en partie « parkour » (art du déplacement), en partie graffiti physiques.


Le travail de l'artiste consiste principalement à introduire des gestes, des textes et des objets dans l'espace public. L'artiste s'intéresse à l?introduction subtile d?interventions minimales et calmes dans le flux de la vie quotidienne. Il essaie de ne pas différencier l?« art-pratique » de la « pratique de la vie ». À cette fin, il a créé des interventions sur son lieu de travail, dans des espaces de vente au détail, dans les trains, les parcs, sur le trottoir. Ces interventions sont poétiques, éphémères et souvent à petite échelle, c?est pourquoi, il arrive que seul un petit nombre de gens les remarque. Le souhait de l?artiste est de réussir à obtenir un sourire, une pause, un moment de désorientation chez ce petit nombre de personnes. Son travail est intuitif et exploratoire. Il cherche des opportunités par lesquelles s?engager, en jouant, dans les aspects de notre réalité quotidienne.

The old Gypsies love Elvis, but they don?t understand his lyrics, many of them don?t know English. So it was a gift for them. Elvis in my very own way, with my own words, in my language, in Gypsy.

Casarsa della Delizia, novembre 2010. Un voyage sur la tombe d`un cinéaste, la découverte de la terre du grand-père, un pays où l`on parle une langue locale; est-ce cela qui fait de moi un immigré? Les récits des lieux viennent se mêler à ceux portés par la mer. Mais la mer n`est pas un pays. "Je vais vers un pays que je ne connais pas. Mais je sais que ce pays est important. Il m?attire comme quelque chose d?indispensable. Mais un doute persiste. Ce voyage est la traversée d?une part de moi-même, à découvrir. Mais peut-être qu?en arrivant là-bas, il n?y aura rien. Rien d?autre à découvrir que le fascisme. Mais je ne parle pas de politique, je parle de la nécrose d?une pensée, de la confrontation avec un réel sans histoires, sans mythes."


Né en 1987 à Toulouse (France), Luca Wyss est un cinéaste basé à Paris. Il a étudié à l`Ecole National Supérieur d`Arts de Paris-Cergy. Depuis plusieurs années, il est membre de l`atelier de cinéma expérimental "L`ETNA", avant de fonder le collectif "Les inquiets" avec Félix Albert. Le collectif travaille autour de l?espace méditerranéen, dans le but de tisser des liens de sens et d`images entre les rives de cette mer. Ce travail a amené le collectif à filmer à Pristina (Kosovo), à Alger (Algérie), à Belgrade (Serbie), à Téhéran (Iran) dans une démarche hybride entre documentaire et art contemporain. En parallèle de ce travail de co-réalisation, Luca Wyss développe un travail d`expérimentation narrative, cherchant dans les récits mythiques et les témoignages personnels de nouvelles manières de percevoir l`espace du possible. Ce travail l`a amener à filmer à Beyrouth (Liban), à Toulouse (France), à Bienne (Suisse), à Cazarsa (Italie). Il cherche à faire du mythe une vision du réel. Son dernier film appartient à cette recherche.
