 The artist behind the video 

A new program of interviews to video artists

This week we launch a long series of interviews with international video artists, that will go under the title: "The artist behind the video".
All the questioned artists answer to the same eight question, so we can draw a wide overview over some defined themes. The interviews will be published weekly, and the order is simply that of reception.
We hope this will offer new sparks of reflections for all videoart lovers...
The interview of this week is with:

Wojciech Gilewicz, Rockaway

ROCKAWAY is Wojciech Gilewicz's third exhibition at the Foksal Gallery, after solo shows in 2005 and 2009. Gilewicz's trademark performative paintings are (not always legal) interventions in public space. Now, rather than displaying these paintings after the fact, Gilewicz has moved into interrogating the meaning of these performative interventions through the medium of video. Gilewicz's video practice began around 2000, when he began using it to document his performative painting projects—today, though, he uses video to create autonomous, visual artistic narratives.
His new exhibition at Foksal consists of three videos, Rockaway, Cuboids and E22. Together, they form a triptych, made in and around New York between 2001 and 2015, paying homage to Gilewicz's creative origins as a painter as well as the complexity and value of (artistic) work. The three films ask questions about artistic fulfilment, production and over-production of art in a global economic slowdown and the roles of critics and art institutions—and ultimately, the limits of artistic activities themselves and the part they play in a wider social context.
ROCKAWAY is named for the peninsula that lies between the ocean and Jamaica Bay in the New York borough of Queens. It is also the name of a residential neighborhood there which began life as a beach resort for Manhattanites in the mid-1930s. Rockaway is ethnically and socially diverse, and bore the brunt of Hurricane Sandy, which hit the New York area in 2012, depriving many residents of everything they owned. It is also the home of Gilewicz's mother, who left her native Poland for America more than 30 years ago to start a new life there. Her house, where Gilewicz also has his studio, was partially destroyed during the hurricane, and the artist documents the cleanup with his camera.
Through the story of his mother and the natural disaster which has redefined her life, Gilewicz examines immigrant life in the United States and disenchantment with the American Dream. He also silently observes the living conditions of artists in New York—a city with the world's most powerful galleries and art institutions and where more artists live than anywhere else on the planet. He draws attention to contemporary artistic production and distribution, the actors engaged in it and the contexts in which it functions—contexts without which it can, in truth, rarely function at all.
The New York-based nonprofit Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space will present Wojciech Gilewicz's solo exhibition in a slightly altered form later this year (24 October–29 November), with the primary emphasis on Cuboids, a video about his peformative painting and the three eponymous spatial, painted objects.
Both exhibitions will be accompanied by a catalogue with new critical pieces by independent film critic Ela Bittencourt (based in New York and São Paulo), Sara Reisman from The Shelly and Donald Rubin Foundation (New York) and Todd Shalom of Elastic City (New York).
Wojciech Gilewicz (b. 1974) is a painter, photographer, installation and performance artist and video-maker. His recent solo shows include the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts in Taipei (2013), the Zacheta National Gallery Project Space in Warsaw (2013), the Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology in Krakow (2012) and the Flux Factory in New York (2012). His latest group exhibitions include the Infecting the City festival organized by the Africa:Centre in Cape Town (2015), The Boiler / Momenta Art in New York (2014), the Queens Museum of Art in New York (2013), the Beit Ha'ir Museum of Urban Culture in Tel Aviv (2013), the Wroclaw Contemporary Museum (2012) and NURTUREart in New York (2012). In May 2015 Gilewicz is participating in the IDEAS CITY festival organized every two years by the New Museum in New York, under the title The Invisible City. He will also participate as part of a group show in Test Exposure, the 2015 edition of the WRO Art Centre's Media Arts Biennial at the National Museum in Wroclaw, Poland. In June he will take part in the third Japanese edition of the Centre Pompidou in Paris avant-garde Art & Image Festival HORS PISTES Tokyo.

Videoart at Midnight #65: Erik Bünger

Friday, May 29th, 2015, 24:00 | midnight
BABYLON, Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, Berlin, big cinema hall
Accompanying the show "Re-discovery: Peter Rose, Erik Bünger and Katarina Zdjelar“ curated by Inke Arns at AUTOCENTER (http://www.autocenter-rediscovery.de/peter-rose-eric-buenger-and-katarina-zdjelar/) we are very happy to welcome Erik Bünger with his live lecture performance The Girl Who Never Was.
In 2008 an American researcher rediscovers the lost traces of the first recorded voice ever: the 148-old voice of a little girl singing the French lullaby ‘Au Clair de la Lune’. One year later another researcher experiments with the playback speed and manages to prove that what the fragment actually contains, is the voice of a full-grown man. This exact same lullaby is the song sung by the artificial intelligence HAL in the French version of Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001 A Space Odyssey’. As HAL dies his voice performs precisely the same glissando as the voice of the non-existent girl: a high-strung, insistent voice is gradually slowed down into a deep, sleepy and harmless one. The Girl Who Never Was takes us on a winding trip through history. A history where a voice echoes forwards and backwards through time, retroactively changing history and changing the present from the vantage point of the past. The more we try to shut her voice out, the more persistent her song becomes.
The Girl Who Never Was is the third and final part in a trilogy began with A Lecture on Schizophonia and continued in The Third Man. The project is a coproduction with the Impakt Foundation, Utrecht in the framework of Impakt Works 2013 and has been made possible with the support of the City of Utrecht; the Mondrian Foundation.

Observaciones Sobre los Colores

June 6 - June 27, 2015
Opening Reception: June 6th, 6-8pm
Roberts & Tilton is pleased to announce an exhibition by renowned American artist Gary Hill. Presented for the first time in the United States, Observaciones Sobre los Colores (1998) was filmed and produced in Caracas, Venezuela and subsequently smuggled out the same year.
Observaciones Sobre los Colores consists of a single video projection in which a boy reads a Spanish translation of Wittgenstein’s Remarks on Colour, Part 1 (1951), consisting of 88 segments, in real time over a period of 78 minutes. Hill provided a modified version of the book with all proper names, philosophical terms and scientific language replaced with phonetically spelled versions.
A reaction to Goethe’s Theory of Colours (1810), Wittgenstein’s Remarks on Colour remains famously impenetrable on account of its complex fragmentation; despite great effort, the boy’s reading is laboriously staggered and uncomprehending. Unable to comfortably understand the auditory content, one’s attention shifts to the visual: a young boy with black hair clothed in a yellow shirt reading from a white book, superimposed against archival footage produced by the non-governmental association Active Citizenship documenting the 2002 Venezuelan protests directly against the government of President Hugo Chavez.
The body, as is language, remains a central feature of Hill’s practice. Here, Hill deftly utilizes language as a system of bodily gestures. The viewer consciously ‘reads’ the imagery on screen as one might with written text: scanning left to right, up to down, with the hand moving to turn the page once the eyes fall still. Confronting this hyper-awareness of the body - the very physical nature of how we communicate - is seen how, from our position of view, the child does not look up from his reading. Stuttering, pauses, gaps – he is difficulty and effort embodied.
The child at the foreground, positioned against the more distant, moving protestors, becomes a tangible experience unfolding in real time and space. His out-of-sync utterance drives the rhythmic editing and progression of images. Further complicating this layering effect is the representation of specific intervals of time; the page number count, visible on the upper right screen, increases as the reading unfolds. Shaped by flexibility and interruption, under this perceptual simultaneity, time stretches: lurching forward and hanging back, while paradoxically standing still.
Reflecting on the language used in Hill’s video, it is important to view the usage of text as embodying human lack of comprehension; this substitution closely parallels the historicized interpretation of color as representing the transcendent or ‘beyond definition’ as posited by Goethe’s origin theory.
In Observaciones Sobre los Colores, Hill constructs a temporal, psychological, and cultural space negotiating the gaps between the visible world and our actual vision of it. In perceiving the world through visual, phonic, and etymological cues, it remains significant that is not what one sees or hears, but how one sees it and hears it.
The end result is a subjective experience of the relationship and confrontation between images and words mediated through language, as opposed to a meditated experience.
Gary Hill’s intermediary practice investigates the relationships between words and electronic images, exploring a wide array of issues ranging from the physicality of language, the space between ontological linguistics and viewer consciousness, and synesthesia.
Originally a sculptor, Hill began working in video in 1973 and has produced a wide array of video works, mixed-media installation and performances.
Exhibitions of his work have been presented at museums and institutions worldwide, including solo exhibitions at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Guggenheim Museum SoHo, New York; The Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, Washington; Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Basel; Museu d’Art Contemporani, Barcelona; and Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg; Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Los Angeles; MIS - Museu da Imagem e do Som, São Paulo, Brazil; Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal, Montreal, Quebec, Canada; Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv, Israel, among others. Commissioned projects include works for the Science Museum in London and the Seattle Central Public Library in Seattle, Washington, and an installation and performance work for the Coliseum and Temple of Venus and Rome in Italy. Hill has received multiple fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Rockefeller and Guggenheim Foundations, and has been the recipient of numerous awards and honors, most notably the Leone d’Oro Prize for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale (1995), a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Fellowship Award (1998), the Kurt-Schwitters-Preis (2000), and honorary degrees from The Academy of Fine Arts Poznan, Poland (2005) and Cornish College of the Arts, Seattle (2011). He was recently awarded the Genius Award in Film by The Stranger, Seattle 2011.
Recent projects include directing Beethoven’s opera Fidelio which premiered at the Lyon Opera House and Feedback Path, a monumental multi projection installation in the Grotte du Mas D’Azil, France.
Gary Hill lives and works in Seattle.

Traverse Vidéo 2016

The Atypical Trouble(d)
19th edition - March 2016 in Toulouse
To see is to recognize, and recognize is reassuring. The word 'like' as a comparison, stays active in the different arts' approaches and critics. Such an approach is continuing to believe in the transparency of the comprehension and in an unfolding artwork, or story.
Experimental art, as it is defined, run away from the obedience to the codes and formats. It refuses to follow the type, the model. However, it shakes the habits and excites the mind's potentialities and capacities to not restrict just to the invention, or just to the new for the new, which is just the inverted accomplice of the word 'like'. And it prefers the advention -invented word for a thing which appears, happens, new and not just found-
This words association disturbs the unicity of the reading. The atypical as a subject, troubles the one that founds it, the atypical as a noun is a trouble because it dismantles the wait.
The atypical is the link between something so close and something so far away, it is worrying just like what 'connects the things we know for a long time, and familiar since forever'
The fact that the experimental art likes strangeness, atypical and practical, there's always suspicions about its legitimacy. The other scares, the atypical troubles.
Traverse Vidéo programs experimental films, art video, installations, photography, and performance.
A registration form, specified for each medium, is printable on our website, it indicates general conditions to follow to participate to the selection.
We hope a lot of responses, and will receive your propositions until Thursday 15th of October 2015 included.

Oliver Laric

20.05.2015 - 18.07.2015
In May 2015 the Center for Contemporary Art in Tel Aviv will present Oliver Laric’s first solo show in Israel.
Difference and repetition are common subjects for Laric, especially when looking at the productive potential inherent to reproduction, or the process of change from one thing to another. His work can broadly be read as exploring the multiplicities contained within a single entity, especially in a world of digital reproduction and dissemination.
Laric’s long interest in variation, in how an image, object, or idea is altered according to its user’s needs or context is presented through two videos and one sculptural project. The newest video has been on view at ar/ge kunst Galerie Museum, Bolzano and is included in the 2015 New Museum Triennial. It is a meditative study of metamorphoses comprised mostly of scenes of character transformation in animated videos that ultimately address the mutability of gender and identity and the ability to transcend oneself.
The second video on display is “Versions” (2012), one of an ongoing series that features sundry references to copies and various reproductions that consider change, repetition, replicas, and variation in an age of digital reproducibility. And finally, “Yuanmingyuan Columns (2014) is comprised of 3D scans of ancient Chinese columns that are available for download on Laric’s website so that anyone can view or use them.
Whether through morphing or copying, it is the distinctions and translations in the process of transforming from one thing to another that Laric uses to examine the formation of contemporary image culture. This process is intimately tied to his intuitive, idiosyncratic brand of scholarship that takes the form of appropriated objects and images, all of which are conceptually layered and often make use of technologically sophisticated methods of fabrication.
Accompanying the exhibition will be a catalogue with texts by acclaimed philosopher and feminist theorist, Rosi Braidotti, and the exhibition curator, Chen Tamir.
Oliver Laric Artist Talk: May 21, 7pm
In conjunction with his exhibition, Oliver Laric will discuss previous works and his sources of inspiration.
Moderated by Chen Tamir, the talk and following Q&A will be in English.
The Center for Contemporary Art at the Rachel & Israel Pollak Gallery 2a Tsadok Hacohen St. (Corner of Kalisher), Tel Aviv.

Video Art Showing in Venice Festival

A collaborative video-art work entitled Mary, produced by Paul Lorenz (musical score) and Glenn Hall (video director), has been accepted into the festival SELF in Venice, Italy at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House. The festival SELF runs May 9 through November 22, 2015, and features a rich program of different events. The May 9 opening coincides with the opening of the legendary Venice Art Biennale, the oldest and most prestigious art exhibition in the world.
Paul Lorenz, of STUDIOmars in Paducah’s LowerTown Arts District, is a professional artist who uses the visual to explore sound and music composition. Lorenz has carved an intriguing niche in the international art world-bridging the principals and immediacy of painting and drawing with the logic and detail of architecture. Glenn Hall, based in the Southern Illinois and Western Kentucky area, has more than thirty years’ experience as a professional photographer/filmmaker. Hall works with a diverse client base, from commercial advertising to editorial portraiture.
The birth of this collaborative narrative art video began when Lorenz composed and engineered a strong, hauntingly minor musical score while working on art in Mérida, the capital city of Yucatán, Mexico. After seeing his photographer friend Glenn Hall’s film in Paducah’s 48 Hour Film Festival, Lorenz knew he had found the perfect videographer to create the visual content for this score. “This is what is sounds like,” he told Hall. “What does it look like?”
Hall listened to the score for 6 months before creating the short film. Hall knew Lorenz, an abstract painter, would be hesitant about using reality as the visual content; however, his storytelling talent took hold when he met Mary Remy, a professional dancer who recently became a Paducah resident. “It was just a matter of location…and being in the right place at the right time,” recalls Hall. Filmed in Kentucky in a vacant home by the river, the collective end result is a provocative and simple 3:21 minutes video about a woman in crisis.
“The SELF festival extends all summer and autumn, but the segment our video is being shown in is called WHY SELF-Adventures of Social Identities, which runs May 9th through 30th,” notes Lorenz. “This will be the world premiere of Mary, which explores the struggles of solitude and change, the known and the unknown, the human relationship to place and the challenge of expectation and need.”

The event quicks-off with a 3-day training-program. During training, the 28 selected Scriptwriters, Writer-directors and producers will participate in a managed by 4 Experts.
On the following days, participants will pitch their film projects in front of a panel of 44 Experts divided into 4 sessions: Feature Film; Short Film; Documentary and TV Series.
At the end of each pitch, there will be 10 minutes for feedback and discussion from the experts. At the end of FEST - Pitching Forum, each participant will partake in an exclusive meeting with all the experts, for more private feedback and counseling about their project.
Each of the 4 sessions will have immediate awards at FEST Pitching Forum. The most valued projects will have the opportunity to be tutored and helped develop by one of the experts, who will surely help the project get to a new level, otherwise hard to achieve.
The list of awards is the following:
- 1st Place – 3 months tutoring, and project development by Camille McCurry (United Agents).
- 2nd Place – A weekend training for a FEST FILM LAB Workshop of their choosing.
There is far much more to be gained apart from the immediate awards at FEST – Pitching Forum.
Firstly, each of the board of experts can select projects that they would like to develop/tutor/finance/produce.
If your project doesn’t win any of the immediate awards, or isn’t selected individually by any of the experts present to be developed/tutored/financed/produced, there is still something extremely valuable you will take home: The feedback from some of the most experienced people in the film industry.
This will be given to you immediately after your pitch, and privately at the end of the session. This will be constructive feedback that will help you to significantly improve your project, and will stay with you for the coming years.
Submissions are open since March 6th and will close on May 20th.
This is the Extended Deadline period, so no projects will be accepted after May 20th.
The Extended Deadline fee is 60 Euro.
Out of all the submitted projects, 28 will be chosen to be part of FEST Pitching Forum, and will feature in the event’s Book of Projects.

A new generation of Indigenous video artists is breaking away from painting, which has dominated Indigenous contemporary art for the last 30 years. The artists are now using the screen in a powerful new way to connect with contemporary Indigenous issues confronting urban communities in Australia today.
BLAKOUT is a new exhibition opening today at the University of Sydney's SCA Galleries, featuring video art by five highly-acclaimed Indigenous artists: Vernon Ah Kee, Richard Bell, Megan Cope, Julie Gough, and R E A. On show are thirteen videos made over the last decade, which explore the diverse and complex experiences of engaging with white Australian history and culture as an Aboriginal.
Nicholas Tsoutas, BLAKOUT curator and Zelda Stedman Lecturer in Visual Arts at Sydney College of the Arts, said: "Their use of video is confronting, politically charged and socially engaged.
"Video has become an active, political channel for artists to not only challenge the post-colonial social narratives and histories of Australia, but confront the endemic racial and discriminatory attitudes that still exist in institutions and social structures.
"In their own unique way, these artists are activists who are rewriting their cultural histories, but do so unfettered and free from the constraints of society. The BLAKOUT artists speak out loudly, without fear, and knowing that what they say and show in their art is about the need for social change and transformation."
The subjects and stories of the videos range from historical and modern day events of white settlement, white popular culture and the tragic stories of Indigenous individuals - to intimate tales and triumphs as well as new perspectives of Aboriginal people, who are just not seen as equals, but as leaders in society.
"By using video, which has the power of mass circulation and wider audience reach, the artists are able to develop a greater framework for dialogue between those that possess power and those who have been excluded from it," said SCA's Nicholas Tsoutas.
"BLAKOUT is about reclaiming identity, empowerment and self-determination for Aboriginal communities, both urban and traditional. It will emphasise different ideas and attitudes on the role and function of film as a way of critically and politically interrogating social power structures of Australian society," he said.
Join the University of Sydney and the local community for a week-long celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture during National Reconciliation Week from 27 May to 3 June.

FILE São Paulo 2015

The new e-motion
From June 16th to August 16th
FILE 2015 – Electronic Language International Festival takes place this year from June 16th to August 16th at Centro Cultural FIESP – Ruth Cardoso. In its 16th edition, the festival occupies the Art Gallery of SESI-SP, the Digital Art Gallery (the facade of the FIESP building) with the FILE LED SHOW, and the Mezzanine Floor, where a series of workshops takes place. The festival exhibits the interactive installation “Solar Pink”, by the North American group Assocreation, in the sidewalks of Avenida Paulista, and the installation “Arart” in the subway stations Trianon-Masp and Consolação. Created by Japanese artists Takeshi Mukai, Kei Shiratori and Younghyo Bak, this work creates dynamics in iconic art history paintings using an app for mobile devices.
The FILE 2015 exhibition, that takes place at the Art Gallery of SESI-SP, gathers artistic proposals in several forms such as interactive installations, games for multiple platforms, animations, video art, GIFs, WebGLs, web art and electronic sounds.
The festival also exhibits a projection subtitled in Portuguese of the award-winning movie “Shirley – Visions of Reality”, directed by Austrian filmmaker Gustav Deutsch, a contemporary cult cinema icon. Never shown before in Brazil, the film is based on 13 paintings by American painter Edward Hopper.
The participation in all activities of FILE 2015 is free
Gustav Deutsch – Shirley – Visions of Reality – Austria
Launch and single presentation on June 16th, 2015, 8 PM, at SESI-SP Theater.
13 of Edward Hopper’s paintings are brought alive by the film, telling the story of a woman, whose thoughts, emotions and contemplations let us observe an era in American history.
Alexandra Dementieva – Breathless – Belgium
In this installation, the ribs surrounding the viewer react to the data, lighting up as results render matches with the alternating words related to the concept of fear and desire found in the RSS and web feed. When he blows on the sensor, the pattern of illumination changes, and the words on display begin to fade. The simple act of breathing becomes visible and important as a symbolic resistance to the power of the mass media.
anno lab: Sadam Fujioka, Takeshi Usami, Nariaki Iwatani & Masahiro Ihara – A Tail of Spacetime – Japan
In this installation you can interact with your past self by touching a monument in the center of the room, which represents a tail of space-time. If you want to shake hands with your past self, you have to imagine that your future self wants to shake hands with you.
Assocreation – Solar Pink Pong – United States & Austria
“Solar Pink Pong” is a hybrid of street and video game. Players of this game can interact with an animated pink sunlight reflection on the street using their bodies and shadows.
Bego M. Santiago – Little Boxes – Spain
“Little Boxes” shows tiny people projected onto wooden boxes. Towards the giant spectator the mini crowds could hang out when no one’s around, move into a “fear area” when someone comes close, start to run, hide from a new “attack”, and escape in groups.
Christin Marczinzik & Thi Binh Minh Nguyen – Swing – Germany
“Swing” makes a dream of flying come true. While swinging you leave the drab monotony of everyday life behind, find a place to ease your mind and regain your strength. The use of a 3D oculus enhances this experience with virtual reality, creating a unique immersive adventure and sending you to a crafted watercolor world.
Donald Abad – Fated Ascent – France
By looking at a pile of rocks through a tablet or a smartphone, visitors can reveal the presence of one of them, virtually linked to the rocks. Mixing land-art, performance, and psycho-geography, Donald Abad’s installation reveals the memory of what is inanimate.
Håkan Lidbo & Magnus Frenning – Big Beat – Sweden
“Big Beat” is an interactive, choreographic, social giant drum machine, that is also a game. Stretch out in unknown bodily positions to reach the buttons and create rhythms. Make new friends to create even funkier beats together.
Índice: Jonattas Poltronieri, Luis Mello, Pedro Venetucci & Rofli Sanches – Phantom Limb – Brazil
“Phantom Limb” provides an interaction similar to one of the main treatments to phantom limb, a phenomenon that afflicts people who have suffered amputation of limbs or organs. Just like the original mirrored box, the installation is a rectangular unit where the user inserts his arm and is urged to move it in different ways.
Kenny Wong & Chloe Cheuk – Iris – Hong Kong
“Iris” is a pair of hands that communicates with participants by hand gestures solely. Through interacting with the work, the audience will then discover and create the language to “talk” with her, which leads to the investigation of human’s behavioral codes by manifesting hand gestures.
Lea van Steen & Raquel Kogan – Futuro do Pretérito – Brazil
“Futuro do Pretérito” transports us to the universe of the visitor through customized glasses. We see what he has seen and the time he used them. At the same time, a sound intervention and a device that makes him see what’s behind him act over the visitor.
Minha Yang – Meditation – South Korea
Numerous symbols are expressed in irregular patterns of sound through the three audio-visual installations. The sound is transformed, resulting in the image of waves sinking inside. Through these processes, this installation can be the right tool for meditation.
Nika Oblak & Primoz Novak – Border Mover – Slovenia
“Border Mover” is a pneumatic mechanism that enables a 2D video image to be transferred to a 3D space. The installation explores physical and psychological borders, and deals with the contemporary individual being, who is trapped in overwhelming technology and the routine of their everyday existence, which resembles the monotony of operating machines.
Oli Sorenson – Video Pistoletto – United States/Canada
Large scale LCD video screens are pierced, producing cracks on the glass surfaces. The liquid crystals splash within the fragments and give the impression of organic forms trapped under light boxes. This work confronts us with a paradoxal twist: an absurd action forged in the same relentless flight of obsolescence and waste as our current consumerist media feeding frenzy.
Ozge Samanci, Blacki Li Rudi Migliozzi & Daniel Sabio – Plink Blink – United States
“Plink Blink” allows three participants to make collaborative music by blinking their eyes. In contrast to its quiet nature, blinking is rhythmic and a resourceful input for sound generation.
POLYMORF: Marcel Van Brakel & Frederik Duerinck – Hardwired – Netherlands
“Hardwired” consists of around 18,000 LED-lights that symbolize the transfer of knowledge. Individual luminous pixels connect and then disappear. In a process of constant transformation, new patterns, interrelations and complexities emerge.
Rejane Cantoni & Leonardo Crescenti – PAREDE | WALL – Brazil
“PAREDE” is a kinetic and interactive structure made from 45 mirror finished aluminium sheets which, in a chain reaction, rotate 180°. The chain reaction happens according to the visitors’ actions. Just like domino, when someone passes by one of the installation’s extremities, they trigger an action mechanism; the sheets turn, one by one, until they rotate.
Rejane Cantoni & Leonardo Crescenti – TRAÇA | BOOKWORM – Brazil
“BOOKWORM” is a reading-talking machine, an automaton book designed to perceive the environment and express what it sees via fragments of literature.
Ronald van der Meijs – A Time Capsule of Life – Netherlands
“A Time Capsule of Life” is an interactive sculpture created from plastic bags, which form a transparent structure of cells and conduits. Connected to air tubes, the bags are pumped up depending on the movement of the audience, which becomes part of the system. Without the presence of an active spectator the sculpture falls back slowly. Supported by Mondriaan Fund.
Zoro Feigl – Detour. A long and winding road to nowhere in particular – Netherlands
A machine that constantly combs a green tape over the floor and so creates constantly changing patterns while the green material is moving the machine in return. A constant dance between machine and material emerges. Supported by Mondriaan Fund. Collectie Voorlinden, Wassenaar.
Zoro Feigl – Poppy – Netherlands
As a giant poppy flower, this piece of tarpaulin unfolds itself above the viewer to show an elegant dance of waves and curls while within this dance a violent battle emerges between gravity, friction and centrifugal forces. Supported by Mondriaan Fund.
Paloma Oliveira & Mateus Knelsen – Monomito – Brazil
“Monomito” is a multimedia performance in which the performer crosses the public space wearing an apparatus that recognizes visual patterns of human faces, “kidnapping” them and projecting them in the mask of the performer, as well as other places in the space he crosses.
Vitor Freire – IJO – Brazil
“IJO” was born with the objective of reframing the place of dance and a re-appropriation of the public spaces. By positioning themselves in front of the work, the participants have a visual representation of their bodies exhibited in real time on the Fiesp building. Dance to tell who you are.
Takeshi Mukai, Kei Shiratori & Younghyo Bak – ARART – Japan
“ARART” is an application that breathes life into objects. It links reality with the expressions delivered through mobile devices adding new stories and values to the real environment.
This year, FILE Anima+ presents 107 short films from innovative and experimental artists who work with different techniques and approach various subjects.

Andrea Inocêncio was born in Coimbra, Portugal in 1977​.
Assistant Professor of Visual Arts at ESEC - Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra (2010 - 2012).
Winner of the artistic projects competition of "Serralves em Festa" (Oporto, 2010); grant by the INOV-ART program of DGArtes (Barcelona, 2009); grant by the Internationalization Support program of the Camões Institute (Argentina, 2009) and grant by the Eurodyssée program (Paris, 2008).

She exhibits and performs in group and individually since 1996. Her artistic practice extends to photography, performance, installation, drawing, set and costume design for theatre, etc. ​Her pieces have a social and political approach through a critical and ironic dialogue. Reflects around cultural borders, identity, gender, stereotypes, behaviour, social prejudice and the difficulties that it entails in human relationships. Also questions the figure of the woman artist, heroin and migrant in transit, social violence and the constant struggle to survive in a hostile environment. Her work is based in an observant and active participation, with a continuous process of research and creation both collective and individual. She develop collaborative art projects with both Portuguese and international artists whose practices range from different disciplines. Through these encounters she search for enriching her practice as well as to explore trans-disciplinary art practice. She is one of the founders of the performance collective Malparidas together with Valeria Cotaimich (Argentina) and Melina Peña (Mexico).

Kung Fu Panda

25 April - 23 May 2015
Kung Fu Panda is a new video work by Swedish artist Jacob Dahlgren in which he films the reflected ambient light on an adjacent white wall at home, whilst his children are watching the eponymous animated feature film. Filmed in High Definition from a fixed camera position and projected as a single work in a gallery context Dahlgren’s Kung Fu Panda becomes an absorbing and constantly changing digital colourfield painting that manifests a subtlety at odds with the apparent chaos of the original film dubbed in Swedish, and the surrounding scenario as the artist’s children watch whilst carrying on their own everyday conversations.
In an adjacent room Dahlgren presents a readymade series entitled When The Sky Is The Limit. Consisting of framed double page spreads from in-flight magazines collected by Dahlgren, each image is selected, isolated, and framed according to its inherent relationship to abstraction.
Dahlgren's work is concerned with a dialogue between the authoritative singularity of pure formal abstraction and its position within a variable, complex and social shared culture. His repetitious collections of ubiquitous and ordinary objects, often domestic, industrially manufactured (and frequently, knowingly Scandinavian); stand in their gestalt form as proxy for High Modernist Abstract Painting and for all of the ideological territory that Twentieth Century Art Theory has staked out for it. The contributing objects, however, signify a collective and human aspect of society, each representing an individual choice, used in a unique way by its consumer. Together these objects stand for the group or community, and as such they become democratic rather than authored. Through endless ingenious amalgams of pattern, abstraction and mass-produced objects, Dahlgren's recent works purposefully inhabit modes of modernist painting, deliberately playing with the inherent autonomy of the source material.
Jacob Dahlgren was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1970. Dahlgren represented Sweden in the Nordic Pavilion at the 2007 Venice Biennale. His work has been exhibited at, KIASMA Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki, Finland, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center/MoMA, New York, USA, Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden, Turner Contemporary, Margate, UK, and Tramway, Glasgow, UK. He lives and works in Stockholm.

Public space_s

In our times, the notion of public space appears to be one of the most contradictory concepts. With the rise of network and communication technologies, our experience of public space has changed. Public space is not only characterised by physical space and architecture but also by networks and knowledge distribution.
While public space is mainly being interpreted through urban planning, digital public space is organised through IP locations, URLs and protocols. Their cartographies, as distinct as they may seem, are both informed by network dynamics that add new layers of interpretation. Squares, parks, streets and the Internet are all potential public spaces that are activated through participation and engagement in order to acquire meaning.
The multiple interconnected spaces within which we act have redefined and affected our perception of everyday life as well as our social and cultural imaginaries. On the other hand, real-time data circulation and information exchange have created new patterns of communication allowing communities to surpass their localities and explore new modes of engagement and collaboration.
However, inhabiting at the same time a plethora of spaces that are potentially public the question that arises is: how open and free are these spaces? Have the visions regarding open access to public space and eventually public data been fulfilled?
