sadescription Marshy Place Across
4mn35   color & b/w   stereo   2012   USA
by Lorenzo Gattorna
The title signifies the Native American name for Assateague Island, a national seashore and natural landmark located off the coast of Maryland. A passive bay and pristine beach compose the barriers of this subtle yet stunning passage. Distractions amongst the dunes awaken development of the ecological and departure of the artificial. The film culminates in close proximity to a small band of feral horses that share a common territory and domesticated ancestry.

by Cécile Ravel
I edited my personal super 8 archives shot underwater, mostly in 1990. Their meaning became obvious to me, 23 years after, as the constant motion of the ghosts from my chidhood, emerging and diving...

sadescription Wind Up Bird
6mn35   color   stereo   2013   Australia
by Katrina Stamatopoulos & Alexandra Spence
The subjects in this film are characters of their own worlds, their own realities. Observing from afar, you are a hidden witness. Inspired by imaginary journeys, "Wind Up Bird" is a result of an audiovisual collaboration between Sydney artist Katrina Stamatopoulos and Toronto based artist Alexandra Spence. This film is part of an ongoing project that explores the powerful and inextricable link between sound and the moving image. ‘Collecting used footage from eBay, I am always uncertain of its age, content and history. My expectations are lost as I view the films, and a journey begins to a far away land, that appears so close as if it to be dreamt or imagined.’ Katrina Stamatopoulos. ‘Wind Up Bird developed intuitively into a sound world built on undulating waves of static. The sounds, taken from my archives of field recordings and improvisations, beckon with suggestions of melody and memory, creaking, twirling and fragmented.’ Alexandra Spence

sadescription History is not mine
5mn   color & b/w   stereo   2013   France
by Mounir Fatmi
The video HISTORY IS NOT MINE, is a direct response to the censorship of the Technologia installation at the event Printemps de septembre in Toulouse in 2012. On this occasion, the installation, combining circular forms of Koranic verses with elements inspired from the Rotoreliefs of Marcel Duchamp had been withdrawn by the organization due to incidents and protests caused by passers-by. In this black and white video, the artist, his back to the camera, is typing the title using hammers. The ribbon alone is red, suggesting that the text appears in letters of blood, in a telescoping of "the beauty of the phrase to write with violence and the difficulty of carrying it out."

sadescription The Parting Dance
3mn   color   stereo   2013   Spain
by Gerard Freixes-Ribera
Even if a couple looks like a happy unity on the outside, on the inside each member may try to nullify the other. Editing and manipulating found footage from a musical film, this work gives a visual representation of the division in a couple in contrast with the love ideal background of Hollywood films.

sadescription My body of water
2mn39   color   stereo   2013   Canada
by Victoria Stanton
As the ideal and the real co-exist, often in a constant negotiation of perception, this work contemplates the space between desire and detachment. What’s between me and you? Between my body of water and yours? The camera accompanies me on a familiar trajectory on bike and foot along the Saint-Lawrence River. Desire lines are carved out into the path that lead down to the water, but inevitably, the water is always just out of reach.

12mn   b/w   mono   2013   USA

A haunting, visual essay about the awkward and angry junctures where our culture struggles to manage its emotional distress. Images recycled from 1950’s-era educational films are accompanied by original compositions by cellist, Zoe Keating.
