FERRIE = DIFFERENTIEEL (Ferrie Maaswinkel)

[Born in: Netherlands / Live in: Netherlands / Male]

ferrie = differentieel is a pseudonym of Ferrie Maaswinkel (1947, Amsterdam)
differentieel means a ‘switching mechanism‘ in Dutch
but also means ‘variation‘
the greater the variation, the more the brain is challenged, are his thoughts.
this variation can be found in his background
first as a painter and designer,
but since 2007 as a sound-designer, arranger and composer. meanwhile he also has an impressive list of compositions to his credits.
he has strong preference for collaborations with other artists from varied disciplines.
music and sound according to him, gives an extra dimension to a movie, a picture, a work of art
the imagination of the visitor is thus in many ways stimulated. in short, the brain is challenged.
although his music as cinematic is circumscribed,
it does not make music for the masses.
his music is for the curious listener, for those who are open to a different interpretati... (read more)

Elisabetta Di Sopra is an Italian video artist working and living in Venice. After completing her first degree in painting she began her Masters in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice. Her videos and installations intend to investigate the most sensitive dynamics of the daily dimensions of life, expressing the hidden narratives within everyday life. Behind the clean and minimal style of Elisabetta’s videos, lays a hidden density of thought and a unique approach to research. Most of them are focused on the female body viewed as an embodiment of memory. The theme of motherhood plays a crucial role in Elisabetta’s videos. As a digression from this topic, all of her works speak to ideas of humanity, commenting on the cyclical movement of everything that exists on a scale greater than the individual, continuously renewing itself. The imagery is tied to the repeated sense of being reabsorbed into the cycle of life and death.

'Operating out of an ‘arte difettoso’ mindset my process-led practice treats defects in filming, (or even glitches in rendering) as springboard creative opportunities to create a bigger potential than would otherwise occur. In simpler terms it is creatively stimulating to face the challenge of failure/flaws and reconcile them.'

I create video installations to explore the autobiography and the narrative potential of new media. By juxtaposing narrative devices found in other media such as literature, comic books, videogames and music, I am progressively creating a narrative structure that reflects my past, personality and influences. By revisiting my childhood misinterpretations, I can gradually pose questions to the audience about my upbringing while connecting my experience to their own. It is in this connection where I find my purpose for making autobiographical work, allowing me to develop new relations in order to gain a further understanding of how I came to be.

Andreas Mares is a passionate artist, a trait that shows not only in the motvation that drives his art but also in the way he goes about his work and more than anything it shows in his work itself.
His work, drawings, objects and videos, are far from pompous; on the contrary their reduced and clear aesthetics have an elegant quality to them.
Beneath their luring surface lies a passionate, wild intensity that moves and stirres us.
In his work he deals with primary topics -birth, death, fear, the artist's fragile self; and in his work the spectators find themselves reflected.
Andreas Mares' videos, I'd rather call them filmed performances, have a meditative character.
The videos' repose only serves to intensify the poignancy of his work; a work which allows him to question the very existence thus creating emotions that get under one's skin.

Based on a site-specific point of view, I am extremely interested in observing the bare cultural aspects. To precisely pursue my pure impression of the site, I do not have a predetermined method, but adds a symbolic form to the cultural peculiarities I experiences and represents them as a site-specific art piece. It is similar to an unusual interpretation of a usual sensation, somewhat like a cultural sketch.
To cover the temporality of the site-specific works, I employ the art of video. Not only for archival purposes, but also as independent works of art providing different perspectives and angles of the physical work itself.
