sadescription [ DOUBLE BIND #3 ]
3mn50   color   stereo   2013   France
by Gilivanka Kedzior & Barbara Friedman
« I love your eyes, my darling friend, Their play, so passionate and bright’ning, When a sudden stare up you send, And like a heaven-blown lightning, It’d take in all from end to end. But there’s more that I admire: Your eyes when they’re downcast In bursts of love-inspired fire, And through the eyelash goes fast A somber, dull call of desire… » - Fiodor TIOUTTCHEV

sadescription Smrt Songdo Song
5mn30   color   stereo   2014   South Korea
by Sylvia Winkler & Stephan Koeperl
Built on privatized land, managed by a single company, finanzed by multinational investors: Cities are becoming a market-oriented product, traded like a commodity. Nevertheless, individuals find smart ways to deal with those concrete real(i)ties. In New Songdo City, one of South Korea´s Free Economic Zones, we reflect on this development along a settled hard rock melody.

sadescription The Huntsman
2mn32   color   stereo   2013   New Zealand
by Brit Bunkley
An oversized spider leisurely roams along Rosebank Road in the Auckland suburb of Avondale and in Hearne Bay juxtaposed against stop motion images of screams from Grade B horror movies of fictional killer spiders. Of the 35,000 species of spiders described worldwide, only a handful are considered to be dangerous and only 27 are known to have caused human fatalities. The irrational fear of spiders is an apt trope for unfounded fear -in the colloquial sense, “paranoia”, which conditions racism, diffidence and the Hobbesian trap of violence. The 3D digital spiders were modelled on a freeze-dried Avondale spider from the Auckland Museum scanned at Formscan, North Auckland. (Avondale spiders are the spiders that were shipped from Auckland to LA for the movie "Arachnophobia".) They are harmless.

sadescription My baby
6mn25   color   stereo   2013   Norway
by Ane Lan
Dressed as a female nurse or medical laboratory employee, the artist situate himself in a laboratory environment singing a “love song” to an absent "baby" while performing an intracytoplasmic sperm injection on a human egg, and then inserting it into a surrogate mothers vagina. The video work investigates the future relationship between gender conceptions and the human procreation in the age of advancements in the field of gene-manipulation and various possibilities of artificial insemination. The work also relates to the Freudian concept of the childs rejection of the mother(body) as a the primary stage of narcissism and the gateway to the symbolic world, an idea further developed by French psychoanalyst and literature critic Julia Kristina, who suggests that the development of the human language and words are a substitute for the loss of the oneness with the mothers body.

sadescription nachtigall singt.
3mn   b/w   mono   2014   Germany
by Kai Miedendorp
Night, a swimming pool & costumed people. Is it a staged memory in an unstaged environment? Does it allow the identification of participants and nonparticipants in the setting? The film piece is a negotiation between the imagination and the image interpretation and distortion of the other. There is only the fragmented vision, the mere perception that results out from the conserved observation.

sadescription SONG N°23
5mn15   color   stereo   2013   France
by Céline Trouillet
Marianne Queval, who was voted Deaf Miss France and runner up for Deaf Miss World in 2013, performs "Il me dit que je suis belle" (He Tells Me I'm Beautiful) by Patricia Kaas, a song about women's desire to believe in men's flattery. The deaf beauty pageant parallels the regular competition but does not benefit from the same media profile.
