Vivian ostrovsky
Mais ailleurs c’est toujours mieux
Doc. expérimental | super8 | couleur | 4:9 | USA | 2016

Film-hommage à Chantal Akerman, le nouveau court de Vivian Ostrovsky s’amorce avec leur première rencontre au début des années 70. Mêlant ses propres films à ceux de Chantal Akerman, la réalisatrice fait revivre quelques instants la personnalité de Chantal. Quarante années d’amitié condensées en quatre minute.

Vivian Ostrovsky, (b.1945, New York) grew up in Rio, studied film studies and psychology in Paris. When she started filming in 1980, she focused on using analog formats - especially Super8 - for experimental cinema. Her signature collage shorts and avant-garde documentaries have been shown at the main film festivals (Berlin, Rotterdam, Viennale, Tribeca) and have been part of collections such as the MOMA, NY, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Freunde der Deutschen Kinemathek in Berlin. Her moving image work is noted for its span of super 8, 16mm, video and digital media, found footage and immersive installations. This screening includes films connected to Latin America and more particularly Brazil. Whether more personal or historical projects, they are always infused with dreamlike playfulness and intimate nostalgia.

Kwang-ju son
Characters Revisited
Doc. expérimental | 4k | couleur | 18:14 | Coree du Sud | 2016

The filmmaker begins to view CHARACTERS, her first feature film made in 2011, not from the outside as a product to be consumed, but from the inside, as an engaged performance of consciousness in and through which the story is both lost and regained in the actual process of filmmaking itself. Exploring the paradoxical boundary between two worlds, she focuses on the basic conditions of existence, identity and survival of an individual in a fictional world.


Since 2003 when she received the M.F.A. in Film/Video/New Media from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Kwang-Ju Son(b.1970) has presented her varied short projects of both film and video, at diverse venues & international film festivals.

Vivian Ostrovsky se souvient de Chantal Akerman, et lui adresse ce film hommage, qui condense quarante années d’amitiés. Kwang-Ju Son revisite le long métrage qu’elle a réalisé en 2011, “Characters”, à travers une performance non narrative, et s’interroge ainsi sur les conditions mêmes de l’existence et de l’identité des personnages dans un monde de fiction. A Taiwan, île et cité globale, Liang-Hsuan Chen filme la journée d’une femme oscillant entre ses croyances et ses désirs. Avec le passage du temps, les différentes générations se confondent, ouvrent la possibilité d’une nouvelle approche de l’espace et de la temporalité de la ville. Avec Diogo Costa Amarante, nous suivons un enfant qui prend conscience de la mortalité, comme une nature morte en mouvement.

Documentaire | 4k | couleur | 30:0 | Pologne | 2016

Can a horse save a life? In Clondalkin (Dublin) that’s exactly the case. In a district with a lot of problems and not may of prospects, young people face drugs, prison and crime as their only path. But some of them manage to escape thanks to an unusual hobby. They tame wild horses and become… urban cowboys. When 14-year-old Dylan hits a bad streak in his life, he finds comfort in Shelly, a white mare that quickly becomes his whole world. Even though taming wild horses is illegal in Ireland and Shelly’s hooves are not used to the concrete streets, their unlikely friendship grows stronger.

GAS IS OVER, a boy's dreams revolve around one particular lake. His dreams seem as if they are about to come true when he sets off for the lake with his father. However, their journey is riddled with challenges and the boy’s father struggles to keep his promise.


Palestinian contemporary artist and filmmaker Shadi Habib Allah takes us with him on an unlikely journey of discovery ‘ at gunpoint across the Sinai Peninsula, led by Bedouins who will force us across an unmapped terrain whose only signposts are the small stories they tell about the stakes of living, dying, and moving through this mysterious space. Stories, itineraries, directions, and allegiances become as blurred as the status of the Bedouins themselves, who remain unrecognized non citizens of this no man’s land, through which Habib Allah is led ‘”behind the lines of military checkpoints, off the political, economic, and historical grid, a place where these desert outliers quietly continue their lineage with the help of snakes”.

Doc. expérimental | 16mm | couleur et n&b | 9:4 | Roumanie | 2016

C’est au bout du conte que la sympathique poupée Pinocchio, se transformait en homme après avoir renoncé à faire des bêtises et s’être conformé au bon sens de rigueur. D’abord il s’était réjoui de cette récompense. Mais un beau jour, Pinocchio vit une multitude d’animaux empaillés dans un musée. Des êtres du passe, mais qui en même temps représentent bien plus que ce qu’elles étaient. Plus libres que lui, Pinocchio, libres de peupler son imagination. Mais le garçon en bois réalisa cela bien plus tard, quand, à l’âge adulte, il se rappela ses larmes en rentrant du musée, où, loups et ours l’attendaient le regard fixé sur lui.

Inverso Mundus
Vidéo | 4k | couleur | 38:0 | Russie | 2015

Engravings in the genre of "World Upside Down", known since the 16th century, depict such scenes as a pig gutting the butcher, a child punishing his teacher, a man carrying a donkey on his back, man and woman exchanging roles and dress, and a beggar in rags magnanimously bestowing alms on a rich man. These engravings contain demons, chimeras, fish flying through the sky and death itself, variously with a scythe or in the mask of a plague doctor. The title of the work, Inverso – both an Italian "reverse, the opposite" and the Old Italian "poetry," and Mundus – the Latin "world," hints at a reinterpretation of reality, a poetic vision. In our interpretation, the absurdist scenes from the medieval carnival appear as episodes of contemporary life in a multichannel video installation. Characters act out scenes of absurd social utopias and exchange masks, morphing from beggars to rich men, from policemen to thieves. Metrosexual street-cleaners are showering the city with refuse. Female inquisitors torture men on IKEA-style structures. Children and seniors are fighting in a kickboxing match. Inverso Mundus is a world where chimeras are pets and the Apocalypse is entertainment.


AES+F achieved worldwide recognition and acclaim in the Russian Pavilion at the 52nd Biennale di Venezia in 2007 with their provocative, other-worldly Last Riot (2007), the first in a trio of large-scale, multichannel video installations of striking originality that have come to define both the AES+F aesthetic and the cutting edge of the medium’s capacities. The second of the series, The Feast of Trimalchio (2009), appeared in Venice in 2009, and the third, Allegoria Sacra (2011), debuted at the 4th Moscow Biennale in 2011. United as The Liminal Space Trilogy, this tour-de-force series was premiered in September 2012 at the Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin, and the Moscow Manege, the central exhibition hall of the artists’ home city. The Trilogy was shown in the Museum of Fine Arts in La Chaux-De-Fonds, Switzerland (June’September 2014). Most recently all three videos were shown at Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY (June-September 2015). In 2015 AES+F presented the new project Inverso Mundus at 56th Biennale di Venezia. AES+F received Sergey Kuryokhin Award 2011, the main award of the Kandinsky Prize 2012, the main award of the NordArt Festival 2014, and Pino Pascali Prize 2015 (18th Edition) ‘ all for the project Allegoria Sacra. AES+F were awarded Bronze Medal (2005) and Golden Medal (2013) of Russian National Academy of Fine Arts. AES Group was originally formed in 1987 by the conceptual architects Tatiana Arzamasova and Lev Evzovich and the multidisciplinary designer Evgeny Svyatsky. Exhibiting abroad from 1989, the group expanded its personnel and name with the addition of the photographer Vladimir Fridkes in 1995. AES+F’s recent work has developed at the intersection of photography, video and digital technologies, although it is nurtured by a persistent interest in more traditional media ‘ sculpture especially, but also painting, drawing and architecture. Deploying a sophisticated, poetic dialogue among these media, and plumbing the depths of art history and other cultural canons, AES+F’s grand visual narratives explore the values, vices and conflicts of contemporary culture in the global sphere.

Des gravures ayant pour thème le Monde renversé sont connues depuis le 16ème siècle, elles montrent des scènes où un cochon éviscère un homme, un enfant punit son professeur, un homme porte un âne sur son dos, un homme et une femme s’échangent leur rôle et leurs vêtements, et un mendiant en guenilles donne magnanimement l’aumône à un homme fortuné. Ces gravures représentent démons, chimères, poissons volant dans le ciel, et la mort elle-même. Dans « Inverso Mundus », ces scènes absurdes du carnaval médiéval apparaissent sous la forme d’épisodes de la vie contemporaine. Les personnages jouent des scènes d’absurdes d’utopie sociale, s’échangent leurs masques, le clochard devient homme riche, le policier voleur. Des éboueurs métrosexuels bombardent les rues de déchets. Des inquisitrices torturent des hommes sur des structures de style Ikea. Des enfants et des vieillards se combattent au kickboxing. «  Inverso Mundus  » est un monde où les chimères sont des animaux et l’Apocalypse est un divertissement.
