Automovil
Doc. expérimental | dv | noir et blanc | 3:51 | Colombie | 2004

"Automóvil" est le premier d'une série appelée "M.I." composé de sept fragments d'art-vidéos qui travaille avec du matériel d'archives photograpiques , en plaques d'acétate de cellulose de l'institution légale Colombienne datée de 1953 à 1979 et qui tourne autour de deux questions fondamentales: Comment établir une relation avec du matériel d'archive, produit de conséquence de notre violence? Comment rendre visibles les petits fragments ayant pour fonction la conservation de la mémoire? Les séries de "M.I." est une histoire alternée, antagoniste à l'histoire de la télévision, due au fait qu'elle ne s'intéresse pas aux histoires criminelles, au sens réduit du terme. Son réel intérêt réside dans les Restes, les sens multiples présents de réserve qui a résisté la capacité probante, sont capables d'intégrer une catégorie plus vaste qui permet la compréhension d'autres situations et d'autres représentants. Les oeuvres des séries "M.I." avec leurs interstices de documents historiques, où l'événement criminel est abandonné et qui par ailleurs, s'intéresse plus en détails, à la particularité, au signe, relaté ou non à un fait ou à un évènement spécifique. L'image traitée en ce sens devient indépendante de son expédient, retrouve sa vie propre dû à son lien perdu avec l'histoire ancienne, et se prouve elle-même dans sa propre existence.


Catherine et Rolando, travaillent ensemble depuis 2001, dans leurs projets ils utilisent du matériel d'archive produisant ainsi des travaux expérimentaux du genre art-vidéo. Leur première oeuvre est un film documentaire intitulé "Exiliados en Exilio", qui a recu desrécompenses du gouvernement Colombien et Français ,sur les camps de concentration durant la Seconde Guerre Mondiale en Colombie. La série "M.I" a été projetée dans les festivals suivants: "EMAF", "Transmediale", "MediaArt Friesland", "II inter-american Biennial of video art" parmi d'autres .

Dans ?The Rain?, Florin s?assied sous une pluie torrentielle et essaie de faire un croquis à partir de sa mémoire du bloc(communiste)dans lequel lui et Mona vivent, avec la pluie, qui, bien sûr fait couler l?encre et détruit le papier. Le travail est basé sur "La Pluie" (Projet pour un texte)de Marcel Broodthaers, un artiste qui avait utilisé le cinématographe comme un appareild?inscription et d?effacement simultané. Les citations déplacées fonctionnent comme un commentaire subtil sur l?architecture communiste, architecture dont la sérialité dérangée et les banlieues infinies se moquent de l?organisation de la mémoire.

Rite of Spring
Film expérimental | super8 | couleur | 7:51 | Roumanie | 2010

In this film, the simple and poetic gesture of Roma children starting small fires in which to burn mounds of white poplar fluff implies a promise?the promise of renewal. Some are street kids, some have a family and some do not, some have a home, some are nomadic, and some just squat a derelict house without a roof. Occasionally the mesmerising play of the children leads the fire to consume a tree, and then fire fighters rush to extinguish it, leaving the burned trunk as a black drawing on the sky. This yearly ritual performed by kids is a metaphor for the spark that sets the existing order on ?fire,? and leads to a change. The sparks and small fires in the film symbolically suggest associations with many things?they could be the fires in the French banlieues in recent years, the perpetually deported and repatriated Roma people through out Europe, anti-war protesters against the invasions in Iraq and Afghanistan around the globe, or this year?s uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East?all of which point to the hope of a more equal world.

Film expérimental | hdv | couleur | 22:50 | Roumanie | 2016

An interview with philosopher Ovidiu Tichindeleanu engages issues of space exploration, imagination and propaganda in the socialist utopia, the post-communist condition as liberal colonisation, linked – Ovidiu proposes – to other sites of decolonisation through a new historical consciousness. The protagonist's reflection departs from the unstable nature of today's ruins: these are the ruinous future of different pasts, of different messianisms, or modes of conceiving the notion of historical destination in the last decades. Ovidiu's analysis revolves around the reciprocal construction of pasts and futures, ideas of renewal or historical horizon, temporal or spatial 'elsewheres'. The backdrop for the conversation the film proposes is the Gagarin Youth Centre, in Chisinau, Moldavia, where most of the footage was filmed. Now deserted, and waiting to be replaced by a construction more adapted to today's oligarchic liberalism, the building reads like a palimpsest of unrealized historical projections, perhaps captured in the large mosaic of outer space labor: a worker ploughing the universe. "An entirely different history of the world was about to be written. The feeling and the memory of this divergence is still active and alive, and it is awakened in connection with those utopias that actually became daily life and are now the history of the people who grew up in the tradition of real socialism. But if the post-communist transition meant a colonisation, and if real socialism was partially an attempt to write a history divergent from that of Western modernity, then what is left of that, what is alive?" Ovidiu's insistence on communism as a heresy, as deviation from other forms of imagining the modern selfhood and society, may have left something behind, a residue that might activate its catalytic, transformative potential. In his words, this is "the power of a dream to bring people together and create another history".

Mona Vatamanu and Florin Tudor have been collaborating since 2001, producing mixed-media installations, actions, and videos through which they confront the traumatic legacy of Communism in their native Romania and Eastern Europe, while wrestling with the ongoing challenge of how to process history. Remnants of Socialist architecture figure prominently in their work, serving as visual evidence, in their words, of “the complicated situation of people living after these ideals failed.” While the Socialist past is the focus of most of their evocative installations and atmospheric films, Vatamanu and Tudor also find connections between the history they know intimately and struggles worldwide. In Rite of Spring (2010), for example, they film children burning the white fluff of the poplar tree, seeing in each mini-conflagration a symbol of renewal and of such incendiary and hopeful revolutionary movements as the Arab Spring.

Antiques become reproducible dinner sets, exotic birds become luxury currency, exploration becomes extreme-sport-tourism, monuments become geodata. A film-poem of an ecology of signs tracing a colonial history repeating itself: celebration and power relations, objects and fetishes, roots and branches, power and class relations in a struggle to find ones' place, ones' sitting around a table.

Ana Vaz (b. 1986, Brazil) is an artist and filmmaker whose films and other expanded works speculate upon the relationships between self and other, myth and history through a cosmology of signs, references and perspectives. Assemblages of found and shot materials, her films combine ethnography and speculation in exploring the frictions and fictions imprinted upon both natural and built environments and its multiple inhabitants. A graduate from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and Le Fresnoy – Studio National des Arts Contemporains, Ana was also a member of SPEAP (experimental research group in art and politics), a project conceived and directed by Bruno Latour. Her films have been showed at a number of international film festivals including the New York Film Festival, Visions du Réel, TIFF Wavelengths, CPH:DOX, Media City and Ann Arbor as well as solo and group shows at Rosa Brux (Brussels), Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago) and Temporary Gallery (Cologne). In 2015, she was awarded the Grand Prize for the international competition at Media City Film Festival as well as the Main Prize at Fronteira Experimental and Documentary Film Festival for her film “Occidente”. She is the 2015 recipient of the Kazuko Trust Award presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center in recognition of artistic excellence and innovation in her moving-image work. Ana is also a founding member of the collective "Coyote" along with Tristan Bera, Nuno da Luz, Elida Hoëg and Clémence Seurat, a cross-disciplinary group working in the fields of ecology, anthropology, ethnology and political science through an array of cross­cutting platforms.

A young man, the lonely character of this tale, is on a journey of (self) discovery inside an unbounded, abstract space, where primitive Nature reigns. In this space, the faint glimmers of the Man passage are offered by some constructions in ruins. However, most of the surrounding is uncharted Nature, this seems to have a magnetic effect on the character who, still an outsider, feels the urge to explore. Although he doesn`t know exactly what he is searching for, his journey is ordained by a calling – and his (uphill) journey progressively becomes more grueling.

Pedro Vaz (Maputo, 1977) obtains a degree in Fine Arts - Painting, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Lisbon in 2006. This year, he exposed Atlântica individually in Baró Gallery in São Paulo, Brazil, Neblina in Galeria 111, Lisbon and Monólito in Casa da Cerca - Contemporary Art Centre in Almada, Portugal. In 2014 was awarded in the international competition "Beers Award for Emerging Contemporary Art" in London, and was granted a scholarship for the development of the project "Tour du Mont-Blanc"  by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the Duplacena. In the same year, Pedro Vaz exhibits: "Tour du Mont-Blanc" integrated into the Festival Temps D`images 2014 and presented at the MNAC: National Museum of Contemporary Art Chiado, in Lisbon; "Stimmung" exhibited in CAPC - Circle of Fine Arts of Coimbra and co-exhibits "Raukoon - Pedro Vaz X João Queiroz" at CAPC (Coimbra Fine Arts Circle) alongside another project "50 Years of Galeria 111" in Lisbon.

Doc. expérimental | 16mm | noir et blanc | 15:46 | Chili | 2014

Vientos del Oeste/Vientos del Este is a film about the frontier as a junction of eastern and western winds, an imaginary line crossed by multiple traditions, information and modernity embodied in the transit of people and merchandise through the chilean-bolivian high plateau. As an answer to the authority`s denial to film some activities proper to a delicate border between two countries without diplomatic relations, I search an analogy in the wind and its effects in the landscape, which as the frontier, it is also unable to be seen but easily perceived.

I studied at the Escuela de Cine de Chile, after I completed my degree with materials of visual anthropology and cultural studies, I worked at a film lab before moving permanently to Spain. After completing the Master of Creative Documentary at the Pompeu Fabra University, I concentrated on developing my own film work linked to essay and experimental cinema. Simultaneously I also collaborate on projects by other filmmakers, I teach and write about Art and Cinema. In 2012 along with Amanda Villavieja, we created Atelier La Faz, a sound art and experimental cinema laboratory.

Data in the Cloud seems to be disembodied. But in reality, it does have a physical manifestation, albeit a small one, on the hard drives on internet servers. To cool the servers requires massive amounts of energy, so the data is stored in huge centres that look like factories, complete with chimneys releasing large clouds of vapour into the atmosphere. One of the largest data centres in the world with close to 300 000 servers is in St. Ghislain, Belgium, where Google Inc. uses a code name, Crystal Computing. Ivar Veermäe was not granted permission to visit the centre, so he filmed it from a distance. The distance makes the physical location of the data take on a magical quality, like an unattainable paradise, but with unfavourable auspices.

Ivar Veermäe is visual artist concentrating on issues of public space, mediation processes, new technology and networks. His projects are based on long term artistic research, which goal is to analyze the notions connected to information, networks, materiality, locality and also representation. He has had several solo exhibitions in Berlin and Estonia. His work has been exhibited in group exhibitions at transmediale Festival in HKW, the Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistic, Forum Factory and Kleine Humboldt Gallery in Berlin, the Art Museum of Estonia, Art Hall of Tallinn, the Estonian Contemporary Art Museum, the Sociale Verzekeringsbank in Holland, the Kulturhuset Bronden in Denmark, the Mamara University in Istanbul. He has participated with perfomances in Hebbel am Ufer, Berlin and in Month of Performance Art Berlin in ACUD Theater. His videos are being screened in various screenings at the AND Festival in Manchester, EMAF in Osnabrück, Crosstalk festival in Budapest, Carneval of eCreativity in India, and in Virtual Memorial, Cambodia. Ivar Veermäe currently lives and works in both Tallinn and Berlin, Germany. He received a BA in photography from the Estonian Academy of Arts in 2009 and a MA in 2014 at Spatial Strategies department in Weissensee Kunsthochschule Berlin. www.ivarveermae.com

The film is a journey of tracing the former Baltic Exchange´s building. 1903 it was built in neoclassical Edwardian style in the centre of London and 1992 destroyed by Provisional IRA´s biggest car bomb to the date. After the bombing there were plans to attach parts of Baltic Exchange´s house to a new building in the same location. Before dismantling it was fully documented and catalogued. These plans never materialized and in 2006 two estonian businessmen bought the facade and parts of the trade hall wanting it to be rebuilt in Tallinn. The stones were sent to Estonia, where they have stayed in shipping containers over 10 years (with the exeption of the facade sculptures, which were used in a project by estonian architects and artist in 2016). After the real estates developers won dispute with conservationists Foster and Partners iconic “ Gherkin ” - Swiss Re-s building has been constructed in the former Baltic Exchange´s site. Tracing the stones and the story of former building, in Estonia and London, leads to unpredictable outcomes. For example, terrorist attack being economic consideration; real estate boom in London; redesign of city space by incorporating anti attack measures.

The work of visual artist Ivar Veermäe (born 1982 in Tallinn, Estonia; lives in Berlin) circles around questions of public and private space, mediation processes, architecture and infrastructure, information technology and networks. As a result of long-term artistic research by means of photography, film and sound, his works are presented in versatile ways (such as video, on-site installations, interactive works and performances, also in public space). Ivar Veermäe aims to document and analyze the infrastructure underlying our contemporary culture of data and information. Concentrating on physical and local presence, confronting it with its representations creates a possibility for questions and doubts. His interest lays in hidden or stealty qualities of various spaces and objects. He has had solo exhibitions in Edith-Russ-Haus, Oldenburg, Gallery im Turm, Berlin, Freies Museum Berlin, City Gallery of Tallinn and Hobusepea Gallery in Estonia, among others. His work has been exhibited in group exhibitions at transmediale Festival in HKW, Venice Architecture Biennale, Athens Digital Arts Festival, Moscow Biennale for Young Art, the Bozar in Brussels, the CNB Contemporánea in Buenos Aires, the Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistic, Forum Factory and Kleine Humboldt Gallery in Berlin, the Art Museum of Estonia, Art Hall of Tallinn, the Estonian Contemporary Art Museum, the Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art, the Kulturhuset Bronden in Denmark, the Old Sugar Factory in Groningen, the Kunstverein Wolfsburg, the Kunstverein Kassel, the Pinnacles Gallery in Australia.

Une Mercedes-Benz blanche dérobe la vedette à un pare-soleil. Elle (she) existe en trois modèles. Tourné en 2014 entre San Francisco, Los Angeles et Pismo Beach pour l’exposition I want to Live in Los Angeles / Not the one in Los Angeles au Torrance Art Museum (LA), le film est écrit en trois volets : trois figures, trois créatures dans leur environnement artificiel. D’une durée approximative de deux cents trente secondes, chaque volet se déploie telle une bannière pop-up, agissant comme un interlude publicitaire à l`intention trouble. Les films opèrent d`un amalgame de langages - cinématique, publicitaire, stratégie marketing, clip - auxquels ils n’adhèrent jamais tout à fait, et qui s`annulent par l`illisibilité de la résultante.


Ana Vega (1987) est diplômée de l’École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris (2012) et de l’ENSAAMA – Olivier de Serres à Paris (2008). Elle a également étudié la vidéo au CIEVYC à Buenos Aires. Depuis 2013, elle séjourne régulièrement en Californie dans le cadre de résidences de recherche et de production : Dickerman Prints à San Francisco ; 18th Street Arts Center et Commonwealth & Council à Los Angeles. Elle a participé à l’été 2014 à deux expositions à Los Angeles : Outside crease of elbow à Commonwealth & Council, en duo avec l’artiste Gina Osterloh, et I want to live in Los Angeles/not the one in Los Angeles au Torrance Art Museum, lors de laquelle elle a bénéficié de la publication d’un catalogue aux éditions du Torrance Art Museum. Son travail a été montré à Paris lors de l’exposition collective SUPERNATUREL (commissariat : Neïl Beloufa) à la Fondation Ricard en 2014, puis à la galerie Florence Loewy pour la Collection Joseph Kouli, ainsi qu’au Centquatre dans l’exposition Dépaysements (commissariat : Gunnar Kvaran) en 2013.

Qu´il est bon d´avancer. Avec le vent dans les cheveux sur le pont d´un bateau ou sur la plateforme d´un wagon de marchandises - lorsque le paysage commence à défiler de plus en plus vite devant vos yeux, botre corps sait que vous vous dirigez vers le futur. Mais pourquoi est il tellement agréable d´avancer? "(pourquoi est-ce que je continue à) avancer" commence par cette question, mettant immédiatement en relation la sensation s´aller de l´avant et le `progrès`. Alors que des images enregistrées à bord de trains, bateaux, avions défilent devant nos yeux, on peut ontendre quelqu´un qui pense tout haut; quelqu´un qui se pose des queestions. Des questions sur notre amour de la nature et de la culture en tant que sources d´harmonie et de civilisation: la nature et la culture ne sont elles pas régies par les mêmes lois qui s´appliquent à l´économie? les évolutions qui ont conduit à faire nager les poissons, et à faire prospérer Venise sont elles différentes de celles qui alimentent la frénésie du monde des affaires à Manhattan? `Le progrès" présuppose une direction et un but, mais ni l´un ni l´autre n´a vraiment d´importance comparés à ce qu´on ressent à bord d´un train ou d´un bateau en mouvement. En avant ou en arrière dépend de la direction dans laquelle vous regardez; et en ce qui concerne le ´progrès´, la direction n´a en fin de compte pas plus d´importance tant qu´il y a du mouvememnt.

Il fut une époque où ?l?espace public? était un concept bien défini. C?était une sorte de moyen d?expression démocratique auquel tout le monde avait accès, disponible en toute sécurité et en toute liberté et qui permettait les échanges entre les personnes. Aujourd?hui les choses ont changé ; grâce aux systèmes de télécommunication, on emporte notre espace personnel avec nous, comme une bulle d?air, et la sphère publique est devenue un ensemble de sous-ensembles. Tout le monde est connecté en permanence à quelque chose ou quelqu?un d?autre, de sorte que l?espace de séparation prend une forme virtuelle propre à elle-même, qui change constamment avec le temps. Il reste entre les sous-ensembles quelque chose qui a les caractéristiques d?un vide qui génère des forces. Il aspire un grand nombre d?individus qui ne peuvent pas ou ne veulent pas ?participer?, ou qui n?ont pas accès ou ne veulent pas avoir accès aux moyens qui permettent de connecter les bulles individuelles entre elles. Veldhoen nous montre comment notre perception de l?espace publique a changé, nous ne le percevons plus du tout comme un endroit sûr. Bien que la voix off ait adopté un ton contemplatif, il reste un sentiment de menace et de paranoïa ; on peut lire le mot ?Bombe? sur un mur, comme un graffiti. Les personnages principaux se déplacent dans un espace que Veldhoen a représenté grâce à une sorte de technique de ?photographie en mouvement? grâce à laquelle une image en deux dimensions devient une image en trois dimensions et commence à bouger. On voit des images révélatrices d?un train, d?une station de métro et d?un marché. C?est une série ?d?endroits coupables?. On ne peut pas voir les ?suspects habituels?, mais le temps continue de s?écouler impitoyablement et l?événement annoncé aura lieu.

Art vidéo | dv | couleur | 11:28 | Grèce | 2004

Le contenu de "obJet's" consiste entièrement en images pornographiques de basse résolution. Cet "objet trouvé" pornographique a été téléchargé sur internet à la suite de douzaines de spams offrant des images gratuites. Peu de temps après avoir rassemblé ces images, le compte a été détruit car, en raison du nombre important de spams, il n'était plus gérable. La vidéo s'emploie à ralentir radicalement le rythme frénétique des rapports sexuels tirés de films pornographiques se déroulant à l'écran, en utilisant un simple procédé d'animation : des couches multiples de photos suivent lentement les mouvements d'un balancier. L'animation entraîne l'apparition continue de parties du corps disloquées et de visages qui émergent au sein d'une confusion mouvante qui les lie, juste avant d'être avalés par la vague d'images suivante. La superposition d'images dissimule autant qu'elle expose. Il n'y a que les parties de visages et de corps qui suggèrent une réalité à plusieurs couches invisible à l'oeil nu.

Krisis
Doc. expérimental | 4k | couleur | 32:26 | Russie | 2016

The video Krisis is a reenactment of a facebook discussion among Russian and Ukrainian artists, which took place in December 2013 upon the tear-down of the statue of Lenin in Kiev during the early stages of the Maidan protests. The discussion unfolds at a pivoting point in modern history. In fact, it occurs at the very moment when History bursts into the scene as a force surpassing individual actors and dragging them into its course in an indefinite capacity somewhere between that of a witness and participant. Krisis should also be understood here as trial or judgment, where twelve jurors debate the meaning of the historical event but fail to pass a verdict. Just as with Pilate’s judgment of Jesus, the decision is not reached and the trial takes on “a continuous and implacable course, an incessant passing and progress through time.” The historical crisis is bound to last like trauma in psychoanalysis: separated from its original context, it reappears in pathological forms in every sphere and at every moment. Structurally and thematically it is a remake of the Sidney Lumet film “Twelve Angry Men.” This classic is an idealized image of the American democracy based on inclusiveness. In the film Krisis the situation is reversed: although the characters belong to the same circle or community, their positions are irreconcilable and mutually exclusive thus making a compromise impossible. There is no way out of this argument but to split apart. The film Krisis plays out a metaphor of a society divided by history, politics, and aesthetics. New challenges further polarize it and augment its internal contradictions revealing a crisis as a state of imminent threat that the society presents for itself.

?La Sortie des Usines Lumière à Lyon? (1895) est le titre du premier film à avoir jamais été projeté en public. D´une durée de 45 secondes, il montre les ouvriers sortant d' une usine photographique appartenant aux frères Lumière, à Lyon. Dans son film "Arbeiter verlassen die Fabrik", Harun Farocki explore cette scène en utilisant l´histoire du film. Pour "Klang-Film", le film de Farocki à été re-monté en une version plus courte. La plus grande partie des dialogues ont été coupés au remontage, faisant du film quasiment un film muet. La musique, rajoutée par la suite, est donc devenue un élément nouveau et d'influence sur la forme, et elle ouvre une nouvelle dimension dans la perception des images. "Klang-Film" explore le conterpoint sensoriel des sons et des images, ainsi que leur interaction, ambiguité et heurts. Comment une musique particulière façonne-t-elle la perception des images? Comment les images façonnent-t-elles la perception d´une musique particulière? Dans son livre "Audio-Vision: Sound on Screen", Michel Chion avance l´idée que son et image sont toujours indépendants, et que seuls notre conditionnement et l´utilisation de nos conventions de synchronisation nous font croire que ce n´est pas le cas. Citons la métaphore éclairante du réalisateur français Robert Bresson : "Images et sons, comme des gens qui font connaissance en route et ne peuvent plus se séparer"

The work juxtaposes close up images of an ageing Donald Judd sculpture with a dialogue about biological adaptation, function and vestigial structures. The film appropriates the Judd piece that is said to exist in a place somewhere between art and architecture, but a full view is never shown, just upward looking shots of details and the effects of time and nature upon it that increase in frequency as the film progresses. The treatment of the Judd sculpture transforms it from a formal to a representational structure, becoming a questioning not just of the original, but also of function, the inherent qualities of physical and historical structures and permanence or resistance to change. The editing of the film also gradually develops along with the narrative, thus embodying structural adaptation whilst discussing it. The viewer is then left with questions of temporality and change, be it artistic, social, biological, historical or structural, of what something was, what it is now and what it might become.

Matthew Verdon?s practice deals with man made structures and constructs, challenging and questioning them as an attempt to understand social systems and processes that are in constant flux. Change is an unavoidable part of life, the question is how do we deal with it. Utilising past and vernacular structures, Verdon transforms them with notions of the present to speculate, experiment and adapt in order to think about the nature of things and objects in the world, how we shape them and how they shape us. The outcomes of his practice usually take the form of video, collage and small to medium scale objects. Verdon was born in Brisbane, Australia, and presently lives and works in London. He has studied at Chelsea College of Art, London and Goldsmiths College, London. He has exhibited widely both throughout the United Kingdom and internationally, with recent exhibitions including The Object as Image at Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna (2012), An Exchange with Sol Lewitt, MASS MOCA, Massachusetts, USA (2011), Hors Pistes, Pompidou Centre, Paris (2011), All that glitters is not institution, Whitechapel Gallery, London (2010), and Madrid Abierto, La Casa Encendida & Spanish National Radio, Madrid (2010).

Hugelkultur
Vidéo | hdv | couleur et n&b | 9:30 | Australie | Royaume-Uni | 2013

In 1963 a spiral staircase was built in Salvador, Brazil, by the architect Lina Bo Bardi as part of the transformation of an old mill into a museum of modern art. The design of this staircase was based on a vernacular technique for making ox cart wheels. The agricultural practice of hugelkultur involves burying large pieces of old wood that rot over time and subsequently become rich fertiliser, providing enhanced growing conditions for the roots of new plantings. A spoken narrative describes the proposed renovation of an old room in need of repair into a new room of unspecified end uses. Such varying but related notions of material transformation and adaptive re-use are featured in the present work as ways of thinking about how the ?new? is produced and the relationship of such production to the already existent. Featuring filmed, found and hand drawn footage, the video is based upon the idea of a spiral staircase, this being utilised for not only its content but also its form through the structural use of evolving repetitions and loops. The work draws on plant science, architecture and speculation to arrive at a questioning of function, progress and growth.

The work questions the conflation of abstractions such as economic growth and finance with organic natural processes. We hear of flows of capital and liquid assets, but can such dematerialised entities be equated with the movement of water that inherently acts under the influence of natural laws and gravity? Here nature is utilised in an attempt to give monetary concepts and mechanisms a form of naturalised comprehensibility, but perhaps both operate in fundamentally differing ways. This is highlighted in the work through featuring varying uses of running water in relation to accumulation and change over time. Ranging from a biomorphic corporate bank building surrounded by traditional water gardens, to cotton irrigation and fluctuating commodity prices, to a subversion of a Richard Serra’s 1968 film “Hand catching lead”, natural, historical and cultural references are appropriated in order to create a narrative that examines an equation that seems somewhat ubiquitous today.

In this work, I appropriate user tutorials as a genre in order to investigate the relationship between technology and culture. The work presents a teenage vlogger instructing how to use a fictive app.With media increasingly becoming more life-like and life increasingly adapting the logic of media, sleek interfaces of operating systems, internet browsers, and websites makes it difficult to stop, identify, and think critically about how these things actually structure and monopolize our experience, despite the misleading empowerment of “ user-generated content ” or “ customizable ” options. I am interested in interrupting this seemingly closer getting circuit and seeking not only to deconstruct the formal and instrumental aspects of Internet browsing, but also the identities that are constructed with and within it.

Vered Snear (b. Israel 1982) is an artist based in Toronto and Tel Aviv. Recent group exhibitions include: Superpositions, 21st Biennale of Sydney (in collaboration with Brook Andrew), Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2018); Bronx Calling: The Fourth AIM Biennial, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York (2017); I can because you do, Participant Inc, New York (2016); Universum, The International Photography Festival, Jaffa, Israel (2016). Snear was a NYC Art + Law Fellow (2016) and part of the AIM Program, Bronx Museum (2017). She has undertaken residencies at Banff Centre, Canada (2016), MASS MoCA (2018), Vermont Studio Center (2018), and UNSW Art + Design, Australia (2018). Research-based artist Vered Snear investigates the role of visual and textual language to explore intricate relationships between media and ideology. Through her practice, she aims to challenge dominant narratives and representation as a tool that articulates subjectivities, affects, and desires. Working predominantly in video, installation, photography, and sculpture, Snear uses a combination of text and imagery from archives, television, video-sharing and social media that she reworks into fictional scenarios. These fictions hold the potential to create a space of re-imagination and agency.
