sadescription "Dear"
2mn49   color   stereo   2015   France
by Thomas Boulmier
self-production
self-distribution
"(...) I AM COMING FOR ART OF SMOKE OF SEWER WINTER MOUTHS. I AM FOR AN ART THAT BREAKS WHEN WALKING ON FROZEN slush. I AM FOR ART WORMS IN APPLE. I AM FOR THE ART OF SWEAT THAT IS BORN BETWEEN TWO LEGS CROSSED (...). I AM FOR AN ART POLITICOÉROTICO-MYSTICAL THING THAT MAKES ANOTHER TO REMAIN ON HER ASS IN A MUSEUM. I AM FOR AN ART THAT MIXES THE DAILY AND SHIT THAT EXTRACT. I AM FOR AN ART THAT IMIT MAN, THAT IS COMIC IF NECESSARY OR VIOLENT (...) ". Claes Oldenburg "DEAR" I do not know how to present "Dear" I think the term of art "politicoéroticomystique" I footprint to Claes Oldenburg can be used to present. " "Dear" or as "dear", "expensive", "darling" address is someone enjoyed in respectful terms, "dear you ..." appears letterhead and assumes either the distance between callers or the evocation of a subject that orality could not bear. In "Dear," the character is alone for the scene. The character of this solitude is not accustomed, he continues to maintain a relationship with his / her "dear" missing). There is something comic and grotesque at the same time to maintain this relationship with partner is lacking in the scene. Coitus / flat I think that is the fundamental lack of respect "Dear" and that he / she makes political accents in the great misery of its shape. The art is missing. It is the decline.

sadescription Ana
65mn   color & b/w   stereo   2015   Canada
by Frédérick Maheux
self-production
self-distribution
ANA is an experimental video about the darker zones of the Internet. It is a moodboard of the imagery shared by underground communities exposing their self-destruction: more precisely pro-ana/pro-mia (pro-anorexia and pro-bulimia). From those extremities is a discourse about modern day mortification and the spectacle of self-hatred enabled by web communication. Real physical performances re-enact visuals found on hidden forum and social media accounts. They are linked together by the thread of creepypasta (the web answer to an urban legend), going progressively deeper… These performances were remixed to represent the aesthetic of Internet culture. Glitch art, analogic distortion, selfies, references to occultism and others are integrated in the discourse. Video artefacts are voluntary. The spectator takes the place of an individual investigating the disappearance of several female identities from the Internet. The missing women appear in encrypted and hidden videos over the web, leading the protagonist in an esoteric puzzle he tries to decipher.

sadescription As glass is warm ice so autumn's fresh fire
4mn29   color   stereo   2015   Italy
by Boris Contarin
self-production
self-distribution
The main theme of the video is the dualism blind/perspicuous, which through texts, images and thoughts about body, conscience and world, resolves itself in the final image, an illuminated stone, a glass allegory and the mere seeming possibility of discovering life and clarity in the black of matter. That brute matter be self-conscious is exactly a logical mistake, obscene in the meaning it has to be out of the scene; it's not a rhetorical paradox, it is exactly an error. A question seems to join: why is this error beautiful?

by Martina Testen & Simon Serc
production : Pharmafabrik Recordings
distribution : Pharmafabrik Recordings
Sometimes he didn’t know whether this image was the result of his reasoning from the long-term observations of events or a terrible magnification of his own inner self.(Vladimir Bartol)
The premonition of spore power and fragility of giants creates a feeling of weakness and a fear of being trapped into multilayered systems. The stringing of events almost runs out of time to make an impression. The connection of particles is not interrupted by the jeopardy of solitaires. What is the place of man in this sequence, characterized by the destruction of the environment, genetic engineering and perception of life as a very short period of time?

by Giulia Grossmann

According to the tradition of the Huichols Indians in the north of Mexico, the deer was the first of animals; it appeared on Earth as offering to the gods and the ancestors. Sacred victim, immolated at the dawn of times, its blood was the consecration of the gestures and the creative activities of the gods and divine heroes. Today still, it retains a very large ritual importance. It was later on that the peyotl appeared, plant allowing to reconnect with the blue deer. It germinated from the horns of the Paritzika deer when it was touched by the arrows of the Sun and fell on the divine ground from Wirikôta.nThis movie is the immersion, for one night, within the Huichol community during their traditional pilgrimage.

sadescription BPM 37093
1mn14   color   stereo   2014   Canada
by Julie Tremble
self-production
distribution : Groupe Intervention Vidéo
BPM 37093 is a dead star that was very similar to the sun. Scientists have discovered that in dying, the star has almost completely transformed into a diamond, as the sun will, billions of years from now. The video is a fantastical depiction of this scientific phenomena made using 3D modeling, a tool often employed in realist documentary and cinematic work dealing with the subject. The animation diverts this technique to illustrate the way in which our understanding of natural phenomena that is imperceptible to the eye rests on fragmentary information, representations, and hallucinatory associations.

by Coalfather Industries
self-production
self-distribution
"Cant" is an absurd theater piece composed of seemingly meaningless dialogue culled from actual transcripts of U.S. political debates.

Places are invested as representations of mental limits. A detail of the place echoes the shape and structure the world view of the individual, he adjusts that detail at the size of his body, the possibility of it moving, and reproduced in the same loop rides the same merry-go-rounds. The progressive acceleration of the process, the counting of steps, a paradoxical speech which becomes clearer, lock him while giving the illusion of progress.

sadescription CODE Europe I, Melilla Beach 2014 or Homage to "La Plage" by Patrick Bokanowski
3mn16   color   stereo   2014   Spain
by Rrose Present
self-production
self-distribution
Europe is like a "site specific" where there is a juxtaposition of the physical space, the geopolitical space and network virtual media. A journey through sound and image processing referencing filmic imagery of the cultural construction of Europe, imagery that contrasts with the “visual” content of moving images which are extracted from the virtual network of those crossing the borders of Europe “without permission” (Melilla, 2014). In turn, such images are interfered with by visual noise from a “TV” without broadcast. As a found-footage piece I recompose the image no longer with the “matter” of the film, but with pixels of the media that mediate us. I experimented with the materiality of the rhythmic interferences that textualize the image, transforming the “objective” media perspectives into “subjective” auteur perspectives that ironically play with visual and audible “noise” to deconstruct the memory judgments of the informational present. P.D. ODE Europe is a Work posthumously dedicated to all those who have died crossing our borders...

by Rrose Present
self-production
self-distribution
The images of riots in Istanbul online (2013) (those they allowed to change a political system) here are transformed into colored blocks, as the minimum unit of representation “the pixel”. Atom of this new world we live, from each of our specific cultures. They are as the graphic charts in motion, that become (paradoxically) invisible the tangible reality of what they represent behind the informational codes ready to be scattered through the visual network insensitive to the "senses." These codes reveal parts of source images together with sound quickly recognize and gives them meaning. Sounds that speak directly to our "emotional body" and will cause "feelings" from "senses" to return to "feel" the cold-date information in the world in which we live. (Project: “Sentir des dels sentits”)

When I was in Morocco for 6 months I also went to Ceuta to have my passport and my daughter’s stamped to stay longer in the country. These images were taken in Ceuta one Sunday. I had a camera and filmed. Before I crossed the border between Morocco and Spain I looked around me into the hills. I saw migrants looking at the borders from the top of the hill. I realised that they live in those hills, in the woods for weeks or even years: waiting. Waiting for the right time to cross.

Mónica is, in theory, anything. Therefore, her portraits are born from the juxtaposition of sounds and of images taken from the audiovisual archive that is YouTube. Copyrights are neglected, the purposes of those who are neglected are usurped and (im)possible truths are tested. Thus, Mónica’s Portrait isn’t intended as an inflexible document – which informs and certifies –, but rather as an audiovisual montage able to suggest the inevitable and multiple identity of things: of sound, of image and of mankind.

The island as a symbol of anonymity, the center of nothingness or a non-place. The relationship generated between the own environment against what is not known, suggests a series of questions without answers due to the inability to see beyond our own perspective. The idea of “island” creates a panorama showing two distant points, each one producing its own sense of fiction and reality. This way, emphasis is made on the concept of the isolated as a territory where utopic thinking functions as ideology, limiting what can be seen to only that which is at hand.

Oil, ghost towns and dust devils are aligned as tropes of climate change. Tornado-like dust devils, as canaries in the coal mine, are increasingly common in hot, barren deserts and in drought stricken areas of the world. I imagined spilling flower petals into the path of dust devil so that it would create a colourful vortex of swirling petals. I recently found a few dust devils during each of my 3 trips to the California desert, but they are fast, dissipate quickly and mostly too far off the road to catch…always just ahead of my car. When I was ready to give up looking after my third desert trip and was focusing my camera on abandoned school, a well-formed small dust devil appeared about 10 meters to my right.

I start from a rereading of Alain Resnais' documentary "Toute la mémoire du monde" to reflect on the different ways in which collective memories were stored in the past and at present. In the documentary, Resnais shows us the tangible, laborious process of the building’s stomach when it swallows, distributes and classifies all documentation coming into the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris. This contrasts with the rapid distribution of information and documents in the present, when before they are catalogued, they have already been spread out worldwide. This way, at the moment an event is taking place, it has already been established as an intangible collective memory of the present.

Sans titre (attraction) is a ‘dance’ performance shot in video with three cameras in a long take. Taking her experience as a dancer as a point of departure, the artist has sought to capture in all its complexity the instant when the body yields to its own weight and then regains its composure. In the seeming motionlessness of the beginning, the body’s ‘mechanical’ infra slowly reveals itself to our gaze. The dancer then leaves the balance of verticality to undergo the risk of unbalance and falling.

Where does the image come from? From the inside or from the outside? Is it broadcast light or reflected light? Is it TV or cinema? Image and voice recorded during an interview with Kubelka at the (S8) Mostra de Cinema Periférico in 2012, the year of the “death of cinema”, as the Austrian filmmaker put it. His face was projected on the dead surface of a picture tube and then refilmed from that surface, which was never designed as a projection screen, but to receive the image from the inside. This contradiction between screened image and broadcast image is the contradiction between celluloid cinema and digital cinema. Life (heartbeats) and death (worms).

It is an "aesthetic experience" of the "information ethics" that misinformates by saturation and converts any event into a "show" of the real. This piece started as "video in progress" during the events that took place in Gaza in 2014. I extracted images from the network of two antagonistic "visions" of the same conflict to be re-signified from the "island edition " or digestion. Not with a "hard" nor "soft" assembly (as claimed Farocki) where the images dialogue between them, they are mounted with the overlap here. The images scream them all at once because every war is a failed dialogue. Building a temporal palimpsest with the aesthetic recreation extracted from information bombing until arriving to almost total abstraction, and invite us to contemplate this spectacle of light and color, as pure reality.

I mix the social absurdities, which can be read off in these actions, with the European view of a far and strange culture.

When a state phantomizes a population, creating another reality. When history disfigures the face of truth. When my story meets another story. When women disappear without trace. While white and privileged, I witness a repetition of stories. When violence against women's bodies equals violence from the use of words. The bodies of those we do not want to see or hear. From my studio window, I look out and my life crosses theirs.

Let us agree that without us you are fundamentally boring, tedious. You can navigate your way through all of life's situations considerably well, but you need help for that special thing. Only when interacting with us do you gain the deepest understanding of certain parts of yourself.

Originating in the Parisian suburbs, Parkour is a "kinetic" art form that involves jumping walls and other obstacles in urban environments. It also evokes the feeling of weightlessness inherent to big cities but which is gradually disappearing. Schwerelos follows a group of Parkour “tracers" from Vienna and slam artist Fatima Moumouni, who pens a poem on the city and young people’s attitude to life.

[video]: I see, I seized by sight. What I see is transmitted by a media that code/transcribe the visible and the audible in a signal to transmit and restore as just as possible the original message. But in the encoding and retransmission occurs errors and interpretations. Errors are corrected by assumption and habit. But what if errors were considered as a new signal, a new creation from the media? Let us consider that the act of looking modifies and influences the nature of the object itself: is what I see and hear really identical to the original message ? Is this the authentic one? And if not: what is it? What I see and hear is not an obviousness.
