sadescription "Fractured"
3mn04   color   stereo   2013   Australia
by David Anthony Sant
self-production
self-distribution
Decisions about what to film within the confines of the specific parameters of the camera frame were determined as much by the decision to avoid filming what lay outside the periphery of that frame. This film explores and reworks perceptions of urban peculiarities found in an Inner Western Sydney landscape through ever shifting camera movements and unconventional editing techniques. Human artifacts in this landscape include such peculiarities as the desolate rooftops of multistorey car parks, street signage, telegraph poles, power lines, empty construction sites and shop front awnings. The re-working is a fractured spatio-temporal continuity that pursues, in the visual and auditory realm, a new mode of expression that seeks to expand cinematic thought.

by Daniel Nicolae Djamo
production : independent producer
self-distribution
These videos ("Menu", "The fat lamb" and "3") are part of a larger project, named “Buni”, which is a journal of the last words. I started it in the middle of 2009. It’s decomposition, mental agony and self loss. This is not a documentation of death, but a mere projection of what really matters. The photos are trying to underline the immortality of the human experience with everything that surrounds him, their interior value, that is never forgotten or lost, becoming the legacy of those who are near to us, those who we love. “Buni” is not a two year study of degradation, but everyone’s story, even if it appears in rather different shapes, written or rewritten with more or less talent. Buni raised me. Although we are not related, she was more than a mother to me. I started photographing her when I saw that he is poor in health. I felt I must do it. I couldn’t stay inert. In the summer of 2010 I felt that the photographic medium is poor, considering what I felt I would like to transmit to others. That is why I chose to continue what I felt I must do through video. It is obvious that a feeling cannot be transmitted in the sharpest, truly human and real form through the use of photography, film, or text. Nothing that is inside of us can be made VHS or DVD. “Buni” can only offer photocopied images of a story distorted by our own memories, becoming a reflection of ourselves in deformed mirror. It is a continuous project, putting together more than 180 hours of filmed material and more than 1600 photographs. This work is part of this larger project, alongside other videos made out of the filmed material that I have gathered.

by Tessa Garland

"Above the skyline" presents a deserted stage set depicting a grim prospect of a lonely, future with nothing but memories. Built entirely in miniature, the detailed film set invites the viewer to piece together the profile of an absent person. With its use of scale and filmic devices "Above the Skyline" plays with illusion and explores the tension between theatricality and reality. Light and sound have been fused together to create an external energy that leads the camera through the model and creates an atmosphere of surveillance and menace. B Movies and early science fiction films that work with notions of the everyday and collective fear have influenced the work.

by Daniel Nicolae Djamo
production : independent producer

The video is an anachronic story, a song that I heard on a train, in Paris, in August 2011, sung by a Romanian begger, on route to Bercy train station. The images were taken on my way from Sibiu to Ploiesti, from noon to afternoon, trying to return him to the one he loved. The story speaks of adaptation and, possibly, regret of an inability to readapt (maybe to a physical space, like its homeland). It could be seen as an impossible return to something that one loves, but simply can not absorb once more.

In this trio, each person is linked to the others, the individuals are not more than servants to the system , prisoners of their own greed and desire.

Like Jeanne d'Arc in front of the scaffold, clueless. Finally, a fight, they come to get her, the redeeming handshake. Out of the hands, on the hands, that’s how you can read broken time: because something is eliminated, combed, scratched and lovely caressed. Perhaps the velvet glove is the connecting through time. For an alliance it´s taken off. Something is sealed: memory and dream play off against each other, the best fighter will be adopted. And ultimately it burns to ashes, the famous story, it was all a dream. Maybe she was the boy that she kissed, at least she resembles him. The image section and traces on the material are covering the secret. Serious men come up to exterminate her. "Deform Your Dreams" as the only liberation. (Text: Jan Zischka)

In principle, this film is about the loneliness and the loss of (sexual) identity. The only enemies in the battle of the sexes of the 21st century are time and reality.

In Crop Duster Octet, the iconic “crop duster”sequence from Hitchcock’s North by Northwest in which Cary Grant is repeatedly attacked by a small airplane swooping from the sky is deconstructed into eight horizontal bands, each of which is slightly out of synch with the next. As the scene (and, in particular, Grant’s body) is continuously deconstructed,the patterns of action are refigured and intensified, culminating in a crescendo of convergence. -- Jaimie Baron, LA Filmforum

by Alessandro Sau & Maria Rosaria Soldi
self-production
self-distribution
Based on 'The 120 Days of Sodom' by the Marquis de Sade, 'Deltitnu' is the main title for a work formed by two episodes. 'The four fuckers' is the first chapter of a story that deals with the problem of image in relation to language. Aesthetic categories of taste are questioned as linguistic rules of perversion and domain on image. The language which does not subjugate itself to image, and on the contrary it makes image slave to it, ends up revolving within itself to the ultimate meaninglessness of shit. The second chapter , 'Veris leta facies', emphasizes the intrinsic relationship of vice with taste, which is behind the gradual decline of image's power in favor to every other value legitimized by art history and men of good taste. This video shows how such overpowering link between language and image, not only subverts the anthropological values of image itself, but it also throws back in crisis the artist and his traditional role of creator.

The work deconstructs oppressors-protesters conflict, crystallising it to one on one poetic encounter, and at the same time offers an alternative in the young woman's action.

The Budapest bathing culture is a rich cultural heritage. But while inside, there's mainly tourists swimming, dissonant sounds from outside seem to disturb the flow of images ... On observing people's bathing in different baths of the hungarian capital, a speech from the off is heard: Balázs Nagy Navarro talks on occasion of a hunger strike agains media manipulation in public media in december 2011. The rhapsody as a poetic composition refers to the "good old times" that seem to be preserved in the baths of Budapest. Many residents can't afford regular visits of the Széchenyi or Gellért bath while Lukács is mainly frequented for curatorial reasons. The recordings were made in 2009 and 2010 at different seasons. The idyllic image of the baths doesn't seem to be more distorted by the modernization to wellness temples but by the changed political situation in the country. Not only since the controverse media laws of Orbán's government there's international worries about the future of democratic freedom in the country. Navarro and others protested against a singular case of manipulated reporting as well as the media policy of the rightwing Fidesz-government in general. As a consequence of this protest Navarro, who was previously employed by the channel that he protested against, has been suspended from his work. In his speech as well as in the sentimental goodbye-song at the end of the video the word "ELÉG" is central: it is ENOUGH.

Despite not having much belief in my ability to explain my movies and indeed the want to not waste my time as I am an image maker and not a writer (as is clearly evident) I recognize it is at minimum ironic there are certain films of mine in making them words flow out of me in what I would describe as automatistical, to use an early mondernity concept (which is not so surprising given at a point in my history I was highly involved with Abstract Expressionism, a movement I completely reject now as flat out wrong). The idea of my film Embraced is connected to the embraced manner art embraces artists and the way in which an artist embraces art not so dissimilar to lovers. Beyond this I suppose worth noting is that Embraced also is another of my films that seeks to record and express the atmosphere possessed by certain places that are "charged" from previous noteworthy art having been created in that specific place, and EMBRACED is a product of this intrigue. Embraced is filmed in Arles, France during autumn 2011. During this period I was involved in making a new film in the region and thus was out looking for appropriate geographical places to shot and was in fact solely using my artistic senses as a compass to decide as where next to wander and film. This lead me to a field not previously known to me where I spent the entire morning and entire afternoon filming trying to capture "this place"-- only to quite joyously discover at the end of my day that I had been filming in a field that Vincent Van Gogh had painted in during 1888. I found it very satisfying (to say the least) to know that two artists at different points in time artistically migrated to the same geographical place intrigued to capture that which is inherently there and "that there" only to become ever more charged subsequent to profound art being created there adding to the mystic of the geographical milieu of a place.

Prisoner's first reaction at the view of mountains, lakes and fields is pure astonishment, and fear of the unknown, it tooks him a while to assimilate his new freedom. The piece is questioning if this first primordial freedom is insight to everyone of us, and how can be reflected in a urban context, relegated to the lines and the spaces of the city.

It is the rhythm of the life, a flow of sound and visual movement, more or less controlled and orderly.

Each life is a unique experience that will never exactly duplicates. Our experience is made by the light of our memory and the memories of who surround us. It will end up in an infinite circle where we as an individual life are so small and the universe where we have landed is immense. "Out of the dark we came, into the dark we go. Like a storm-driven bird at night we fly out of the Nowhere; for a moment our wings are seen in the light of the fire, and, lo! we are gone again into the Nowhere. Life is nothing. Life is all.

"Hasta Nunca" follows MARIO LIGETTI, a middle aged hipster DJ who produces an underground radio show in Montevideo, Uruguay. On his show Secrets and Stories he invites listeners to share their intimate thoughts with him and a live radio audience. Mario re-negotiates his public and private personas during the course of the film and enters into an extra marital affair with JULIA, a divorcee searching for a new artistic spark. In this international production (USA, Uruguay) each call in to the show was written and performed by local actors. Topics addressed in telephone conversations:  lingering effects of the military dictatorship in Uruguay, the difficulty of obtaining an -illegal- abortion and varied identity issues. Ligetti’s show is a modern rollicking Miss Lonelyhearts, with its host increasingly suffocated by the personal predicaments of his listeners. Shot in cinéma vérité style, Hasta Nunca reveals Montevideo as a strong background character in the film’s visual landscape. Callers' voices on the radio provide an acoustic counterpoint for an observational investigation of this ramshackle port city which retains the architectural vestiges of its colonial past.

I am a nomadic wanderer through my consciousness…. I have the tendency to create around me a fictitious world, surrounding myself with friends and acquaintances that never existed…. I'm the empty stage where various actors act out various plays, I suffer the delicacy of my feelings with disdainful attention… I break my soul into pieces, and into different persons... An aspect of hysteria that exists within me… It’s our own concept, our own selves that we love, The self-division of the “I” is a common phenomenon in cases of masturbation, Unceasingly I feel that I was other, that I felt other, that I thought other… I am a spectator of myself... I created myself, crevasse and echo, by thinking. I multiplied myself by introspection…I am other even in my way of being…

I create machinima on Second Life mixed with Real Life’s films. Hometown is a film about my homesickness. Back to South of France during summer time, my body becomes a landscape, all my senses are aware. I try to translate visually how my avatar becomes my vehicle to the numerical world. I feel what “she” feels, and we live parallel lives. I also take care of my avatar, make “her” take a bath and make meditation. It’s as if I could feel what my avatar feels when it’s in a bath. Thanks to the decoupage I try to recreate slow motion meridional time (in south of France) and sensuality of summer time. I explore cut-in and insertions to make us confuse about which one of both lives is real or which one is virtual.

"I Am Home Less" takes a rigorous trip through the idea of and realities of home with the eventual realization that home as we inherently presumed it would be is never available. As this discovery demands another look, an informed look at a future infested with hallucinations dooming us to wander bankrupt as delusional observers of life without an available meaning to life, and realizing there is no rational answer to the question, what next, as human beings pass through varying levels of consciousness eventually merely disintegrating unnoticed by the preoccupations of passers by.

It is a result of phrases taken out from different commercials which were combined into a continuously ongoing monologue. The monologue turns out to be commanded and alienated by advertisement.

The moving picture takes the classical theme of the “nude” in a contemporary interpretation as a psychological condition. The viewer is confronted with different levels of movements of baring/exposing, but is disturbing intimacy, the process of emptiness. Emptiness in the sense of meditating. The nude is a metaphor. The Inability of Being Nude becomes the inability of exposing one’s entire internal to other people, including those who are most intimate and this could be the viewer himself. This inability is in the same way protecting as separating.

Drawing on the artist’s own experience, this video touches on a number of subjects including migration and otherness, and impermanence and mortality.

MuMo is a Mobile Museum funded by L’art à l’enfance whose objective is to raise children’s awareness of contemporary art through a travelling museum housed in a specially-designed lorry-driven container. Upon reaching its destination, the container opens and transforms into a museum with three distinct spaces, each of which takes the child into a different world: painting, sculpture, installation, photography, video, design… The featured artists, James Turrell, Ghada Amer, Daniel Buren, Yong Ping Huang, Pierre Huygue, Paul McCarthy, Nari Ward, Lawrence Weiner, Cherry Samba, Maurizio Cattelan, Jim Lambie, Roman Signer, among others, have each proposed a work they specifically created for the Mobile Museum. Gilles Coudert followed MuMo from the design stage through to construction, then trailed the mobile museum as it travelled to villages and schools. MuMo was assembled in England, then introduced for the first time at the International Contemporary Art Fair in Paris. Mumo then went on tour in both France and Africa. Mumo’s voice is spoken by Charles Berling who recounts Mumo’s adventures on two continents. The commissioners, the architect, the artists themselves, art historians, mediators and Mumo’s driver also take the floor and discuss the challenges of such an experience. As the mobile museum makes its stops, we witness the reactions of the children and hear from the teachers, school directors and the town mayors who host the museum. The film reveals how children from totally different backgrounds perceive these works of art, and shows, through the two tours, how contemporary art has developed a universal language which contributes to facilitating relations between individuals whilst promoting diversity as a true asset.

"Menu" is part of a larger project, named “Buni”, which is a journal of the last words. I started it in the middle of 2009. It’s decomposition, mental agony and self loss. This is not a documentation of death, but a mere projection of what really matters. The photos are trying to underline the immortality of the human experience with everything that surrounds him, their interior value, that is never forgotten or lost, becoming the legacy of those who are near to us, those who we love. “Buni” is not a two year study of degradation, but everyone’s story, even if it appears in rather different shapes, written or rewritten with more or less talent. Buni raised me. Although we are not related, she was more than a mother to me. I started photographing her when I saw that he is poor in health. I felt I must do it. I couldn’t stay inert. In the summer of 2010 I felt that the photographic medium is poor, considering what I felt I would like to transmit to others. That is why I chose to continue what I felt I must do through video. It is obvious that a feeling cannot be transmitted in the sharpest, truly human and real form through the use of photography, film, or text. Nothing that is inside of us can be made VHS or DVD. “Buni” can only offer photocopied images of a story distorted by our own memories, becoming a reflection of ourselves in deformed mirror. It is a continuous project, putting together more than 180 hours of filmed material and more than 1600 photographs. This work is part of this larger project, alongside other videos made out of the filmed material that I have gathered.

sadescription Narcotics. In the next Room

by Brice Bowman
self-production
self-distribution
"Narcotics. In the next Room" takes place in a dirty old hotel with the rooms being various potential stopping points in a journey of endurance to remain true to personal convictions in life. The filth and darkness of the hotel represents life. There is much symbolism in the film, for example, the elevator represents the passage up and down the different levels of the self. "Narcotics. In the next Room" is made as if the self is always looking through "a psychological door" with the potentiality of passing through to the meet the next psychological door, but the self not always able to decide or act on a decision. The space in the film is a mental space as if being "stepped-back" from space viewing from space without and/or not connected to the space of reality. The Exit door at the end of the film is a theoretical exit where a suspicious dark murk is seen so as to continually trap the self paralyzed with trepidation reaching the unknown end.

'natyr' is the third video in which Norwegian artist Ottar Ormstad combines concrete poetry, images, and music/sound. This time the video is based on a work by the Norwegian painter Knut Rumohr (1916-2002) who mostly created abstract tempera paintings inspired by the nature of a fjord at the Norwegian west coast. Ormstad once again continues mixing words from different languages. A concept he presented with "Non-Translation as Poetic Experience" at the Translating E-Lit conference in Paris 2012. The word 'natyr' may not exist in any language, but may be experienced with different associations to nature. The video (HD 16:9) is made for plain screening (4:45min). Exept for the animation made by Ina Pillat, everything is directed and created by Ormstad, photography and music included.

The video aims to present Neno’s visual interpretation of the world and the social environment, where he lives in, by saying seemingly well-known truths. Those truths are matched by contradictory but very strong visual element (the RAINBOW), which if considered at one level, seem to be in conflict with one another both ideologically and visually. In fact, in favor of the dispute, the artist denies them. In other words: by negation, through denial, he affirms a favorable and positive opinion. In all the videos we observe seemingly barbarian or even savage attitude, which puts under question the achievements of the civilization, but the RAINBOW appearance changes the video meaning deep in its roots and makes it multileveled.

Friedrich Nietzsches "Noon and Eternity“ in times of mass tourism and digital viewing habits. In the air above Nice, up to 49,000 passengers a day, longing for happiness. Down at the beach they can watch themselves flying over. An animated screenplay frames the setting for Nietzsche’s thoughts out of his late work written in Nice. As if the sky embodies a dystopian image of “the eternal return of the same”. For Friedrich Nietzsche, Nice, where he spent every winter from 1883 – 1888, was the scene of a long awaited fulfillment. Under the light of southern France, he felt he was experiencing with his senses the melting of “Noon and Eternity” and the poetic essence of “Dream and Ecstasy”. His critical perspectives changed there into the prophecy of the Dionysian philosopher. “The eternal return of the same” as a great mystical affirmation.

It is above all an experience for the whole team because the creation process was conducted without a script. The work was created on the basis of improvisations, the only materials were the body and emotions. We started with the idea to express specific feelings in image combining the real and the imaginary. This experimental short film is the result of a challenge in adverse conditions with little equipment. Divided into two parts, before and after the act of suicide, filmed in real time, it emphasizes the feeling of solitude and reflection. You can imagine since the choice was made not to use words, only the image and the body must speak to the bodies and minds of viewers. And the second part shows the fantastic side and dreamed the interpretation of metaphorical images of emotions and the imagination, what happens during and immediately after death, because it is a suicide.

The video shows a view of the city life in the center of Seoul. The hyper-communication marks the face of our modern cities worldwide. The video transforms the poem by Hermann Hesse, "In the mists" into the digital age. With electronically generated voices and the addition of the verse, it tells of the loneliness of today in the era of Smart - and iPhones. The mist becomes a digital mist. The music of Beethoven gives the sad picture an ironic lightness. People walk past each other, but they are no longer connected to each other and their environment. It shows their stress, loneliness and isolation. The closeness and intimacy is abolished, just like the nature which is replaced by an artificial nature. We are constantly tired and live in a “fatigue society “ (Philosopher Byung-Chul Han). New information technologies dominate our daily life, they determine our being. The city people live away from nature and reality. They are non- stop online, they speak all the time but not with those who surrounds them.The virtual communication which promises us closeness and freedom is the one who actually destroys both.

Music by Roberto Crippa live recorded at Under the Dust Studios, London. As the world moves away from the Industrial Age and deeper into the Information Age, the relics of our former industries can been seen ageing and abandoned. Often, older industrial buildings and sites are so polluted with the materials, once used or made there, that the locations can’t be used for much else. Since they can’t be used, they simply sit and gather the layers of time that make them fascinating until they are demolished, repossessed, or completely forgotten about. These abandoned factories, have served their useful lives and now stand silent. I want to explore all the different aspects of these buildings, such as aesthetic form and architecture.

"The fat lamb" are part of a larger project, named “Buni”, which is a journal of the last words. I started it in the middle of 2009. It’s decomposition, mental agony and self loss. This is not a documentation of death, but a mere projection of what really matters. The photos are trying to underline the immortality of the human experience with everything that surrounds him, their interior value, that is never forgotten or lost, becoming the legacy of those who are near to us, those who we love. “Buni” is not a two year study of degradation, but everyone’s story, even if it appears in rather different shapes, written or rewritten with more or less talent. Buni raised me. Although we are not related, she was more than a mother to me. I started photographing her when I saw that he is poor in health. I felt I must do it. I couldn’t stay inert. In the summer of 2010 I felt that the photographic medium is poor, considering what I felt I would like to transmit to others. That is why I chose to continue what I felt I must do through video. It is obvious that a feeling cannot be transmitted in the sharpest, truly human and real form through the use of photography, film, or text. Nothing that is inside of us can be made VHS or DVD. “Buni” can only offer photocopied images of a story distorted by our own memories, becoming a reflection of ourselves in deformed mirror. It is a continuous project, putting together more than 180 hours of filmed material and more than 1600 photographs. This work is part of this larger project, alongside other videos made out of the filmed material that I have gathered.

They are attached to that life and they are afraid to change. The chains made this human beings completely bind to themselves, to their lives. The city is the cave and the cave is ourselves or part of us, the tree simbolizes the roots that suspend us and make us what we are. The Guise is the thin line between what we believe and what is reality, is it possible that we actually conform ourselves to the rules of society where we born? Is this actually the ultimate true of life?

The third concept of the movie is the mystic art acquires as it lives beyond the years of mortal beings, the artists that created it.

The video aims to present Neno’s visual interpretation of the world and the social environment, where he lives in, by saying seemingly well-known truths. Those truths are matched by contradictory but very strong visual element (the RAINBOW), which if considered at one level, seem to be in conflict with one another both ideologically and visually. In fact, in favor of the dispute, the artist denies them. In other words: by negation, through denial, he affirms a favorable and positive opinion. In all the videos we observe seemingly barbarian or even savage attitude, which puts under question the achievements of the civilization, but the RAINBOW appearance changes the video meaning deep in its roots and makes it multileveled.

"The Tears of Man Ray" evolves around the notion that life events that are at first pleasant memories can turn out later to become sour memories; and become regret in the deepest sense, haunting us forever, moreover, indulgences that lead to disasters, the manner in which a creative person sacrifices all of oneself for art at all costs as if they were hypnotized to out of control addictions. Other notions in "The Tears of Man Ray" are: foreignness, irony, failing while trying to recover, nostalgia based in fiction, death after life (yes I said "death after life"), and additionally life lived as a partition from reality, inaccessibility, exoticness, inability to retain something once obtained, always being on a journey, the ocean as time, and repetitive music seemingly sweet but ever so full of pain in reality with its inherent repeating error (which I put the error in the soundtrack music intentionally).

There is also a drive towards introspection, towards revealing the human interior where silence plays a key role. The trace that the passing of time leaves on each image.

This is a three-channel installation/ experimental film, telling simultaneously the stories of three women intertwined. They could be the same woman at three different stages of her life, sisters or three generations. The stories are perverted modern-fairy-tale stereotypes of women without a happy-ending questioning identity, generation and motherhood. They are a metaphor for relationships: Who influences whom? Who depends on whom? How do we perceive the other? Who manipulates whom? Who guides us, who serves us as a role model, as an ideal? It’s an eternal quest, which is perpetrated from one generation to the other. Ved'ma is an ancient Russian word, which meant, witch in old Russian, today it means old mare. This title remains ambiguous between fascination and rejection, as are the characters of the film.

By containing the free-flowing water within the structure of the grid, Wave Patterns explores intersections between the natural world and the human impulse to build and make order. The unexpected soundscape of construction sounds contributes to the constructive process.

A moving image of clouds in a blue sky is placed directly above another one of water flowing over a weir. Both images were taken in different places but are connected by the fact that they are two forms of the same natural element of landscape, water.

This film has a monolithic and uniform atmosphere. Its global feeling is anxiety, a fear of a dangerous event about to happen. In the soundtrack, we can hear a musical composition that is evolving very slowly and is made out of a unique sound material : human voices holding a note which sustain seems to be infinite. The image you can see is a simple geometric figure, almost monochromatic, which transforms itself into a more complex figure in a slow and impercetible way. The musical composition is partly based on the works of La Monte Young : a music freed from the occidental notion of rythm and from the regular pulse that indicates the passing of time. Here, the sound piece seems to have neither beginning nor end, and does not propose any outcome or resolution: it is the feeling that prevails. The geometrical figures (oblique, cross) evolve slowly. A simple bar becomes a cross. Other bars appear through transparency . In the initial monochromy, bits of colours burst out inside the figures. The minimal outlook of both sound and image are part of a global aestethics : infinitesimal variations can cause sensations of great intensity.

Today's profit and consumer society is a society hostile. Especially if you are a zombie. To avoid being lynched, he regularly goes to work, disguises as a man as well as he can and tries to behave discreetly. Not so easy when you decay and bleed at every nook and corner…

This performance is inspired by the “Maypole Dance”, a form of folk dance from Western Europe still widely distributed nowadays. Here detached from its festive scope, it opens up to various readings: by turns fateful dance, endless ritual procession, or metaphor of an animal convolution.

« Sometimes, when everywhere around darkness smothers the last breaths by its density, images come to us. Fleeting visions that play with our reason, as many isolated beacons ; enigmatic signals revealing another space-time, lost, forgotten, hidden. Troubled by the masquerade of screen memories, voices are raised ; familial and familiar exchanges take place again, for a moment, underlining the obviousness of the unspoken. Yet I had erased the traces of that other story. »
