An Illustrated Guide to Lighthouse Spotting
Doc. expérimental | 0 | noir et blanc | 27:47 | Irlande | 2016

Framing the activities of a group of lighthouse spotters against the uncertain future faced by Irish lighthouses, An Illustrated Guide to Lighthouse Spotting idles with common documentary conventions in a kind of epistemological dilettantism, whereby the diseased triumvirate of rhetorical development, drama and realism is inoculated by mild incoherence, mundanity and idiosyncratic fancy.

Mike Hannon works as an independent artist, and as a freelance documentor for creative sectors and the visual arts. His previous pieces have included both conventional, TV documentary and experimental work.

Venir s?installer en France a d?abord signifié pour Julieta Hanono prendre de la distance avec sa langue maternelle. Puis revivre l?exil de ses arrières grands parents, d?Alep, d?Alexandrie, de l?Espagne à l?Argentine. Julieta Hanono souhaite redessiner leur parcours, elle parcourt Buenos Aires, puis arrive en France. A son arrivée à Paris, elle entreprend des ?uvres à partir de portes et de planches, des objets jetés, qu`elle récupère. Elle comprend plus tard le lien avec sa propre histoire : le 11 novembre 1977, à l?âge de seize ans, durant la dictature militaire en Argentine elle fût portée disparue. A Paris surgissaient les reliefs d?un récit enfoui, celui de sa propre histoire qu?en Argentine elle ne pouvait voir. Sa ligne d?horizon s?épaississait et son cheminement la conduisait à construire de nouvelles séries de travaux : des « bijoux », des ?uvres photographiques élaborés à partir d?instruments médicaux et des images numériques.

El Pozo
Vidéo expérimentale | dv | couleur | 5:30 | France | Espagne | 2007

"Caméra au point, Julieta Hanono arpente le gouffre et s?avance jusqu?à la lisière de l?insondable territoire, celui où l?homme n?est plus l?homme. A l?image, des filets de lumière, des entrefilets de paroles, le tissage d?une pensée matière, épaisseur sans laquelle ne pourrait éclore un quelconque partageable. El Pozo, non lieu d?une histoire insensée ; « El Pozo », l??uvre de Julieta Hanono, « lieu-dit » constitué sur fond de ténèbres, masque rapporté sur une histoire demeurée hors du monde, sur une histoire sans visage. El Pozo n?existe pas, il est trou noir, anti-pensée comme l?on parlerait d?anti-matière. A l??uvre, nous ne le voyons pas. A l??uvre s?expose son exact envers, la raison reconquise. Le sujet doit s?exprimer sans ruser ; le Je doit prendre ici la parole. Je refuse de prétendre que quoi que ce soit du vécu de Julieta Hanono en tant que « disparue » puisse devenir pour moi compréhensible. Rien n?y fait, pas même cette ?uvre qui ne saurait rendre palpable l?inouï qui en est le creuset. Je refuse l?empathie qui semble être de rigueur ? de bienséance ? face à ce que d?aucuns nomment un « témoignage ». L?empathie ne peut être ici que feinte ; forme sommaire d?entente, elle demeure sourde au fond de l?histoire folle traversée par Julieta Hanono. L?inhumanité me restera inaccessible par la pensée, car elle en est son strict négatif. Ce que je vois, ce que je pense face à « El Pozo » est tout autre : il s?agit du chemin que parcourt Julieta Hanono pour renaître à la vie ; il s?agit du secret constitutif de « l?humanité de l?humain » dont parle Georg Lukacs. C?est précisément cette histoire que rapporte Julieta Hanono de son propre gouffre ; c?est précisément là que réside le partageable de son aventure. « El Pozo » expose, vive, l?histoire qui me constitue. « El Pozo » est le récit de la (re)conquête du sujet par lui-même, de la (re)naissance du Je. Voir « El Pozo » dans El Pozo éclaire d?un feu plus brûlant encore le secret dont cette ?uvre nous parle. Cette exposition boucle en quelque sorte la démonstration de vie. Placé (tout) contre les murs du gouffre, l??uvre affirme la conquête de l?artiste. Placé entre l?homme et l?espace de sa négation, l??uvre rend active de manière performative sa propre nécessité : elle recrée le sol même de la pensée en mettant à distance l?inhumain par les images et les mots. Jamais El Pozo n?aura été plus éloigné qu?au moment où « El Pozo » irradiera ces lieux ; jamais El Pozo n?aura été plus terrassé en tant que politique d?anéantissement que lorsque « El Pozo » s?y dressera. L??uvre de Julieta Hanono nous rend El Pozo habitable par la pensée, et sans doute rend-elle habitable par la pensée à l?artiste elle-même sa propre histoire insensée. ?uvre politique par excellence, « El Pozo » se comprend comme le récit de la lutte du sujet contre les machines qui dans l?histoire ont visé son éradication. Dans cette affaire ? constituer et entretenir le monde par les armes de la parole ? , l?artiste se situe en première ligne. Il est celui qui traverse les gouffres pour nous en donner l?image renversée, et donc habitable. Il est celui qui porte à bout de bras, à l?instar de Julieta Hanono arpentant El Pozo caméra au point, « l?humanité de l?humain » jusqu?à nous. Sébastien Thiery


Julieta Hanono Venir m?installer en France a d?abord signifié prendre de la distance avec ma langue maternelle. Traverser un autre idiome et réinventer à partir de ce détour mes propres mythes. C?est aussi revenir au point de départ, revivre l?exil de mes arrières grand parents, d?Alep, d?Alexandrie, de l?Espagne à l?Argentine. Et dans une spirale ascendante, je veux redessiner leurs parcours. Je pars de Buenos Aires et je débarque en France. A mon arrivée à Paris, j?ai entrepris des ?uvres à partir de portes et de planches que je récupérais. Je ramenais dans mon atelier des objets jetés ; après je compris que faire apparaître ce qu?étais disparus étais en relation a ma propre histoire : le 11 novembre 1977, à l?âge de seize ans, durant la dictature militaire en Argentine je fus portée disparue.( j?étais enlevée de la vie et jetée hors du monde) Ainsi, à Paris surgissaient les reliefs d?un récit enfoui, celui de ma propre histoire qu?en Argentine je ne pouvais voir. Trop proche, elle demeurait là-bas un point aveugle. Tunnel? Loupes / serrures. Ma ligne d?horizon s?épaississait et mon cheminement me conduisait à construire de nouvelles séries de travaux : des « bijoux » et des ?uvres photographiques élaborés à partir d?instruments médicaux. Notamment, je produisais des images numériques prises à travers un spéculum et constituais ainsi la série « Le tunnel ». Ambiguïté du spéculum réunissant en lui-même deux principes : loupe et serrure. Objet à double tranchant peut-être permettant de se rapprocher, de voir en vue d?un savoir scientifique et neutre ; mais aussi permettant d?épier, de se faire le voyeur d?une intimité secrète. « Le tunnel » se compose de différents tableaux. Il s?agit d?une série de déclinaisons, mais aussi d?instantanés que l?on peut approcher indépendamment de la série dans laquelle ils s?inscrivent. Images agrandies, avec une certaine pixellisation, ces « portraits féminins » de dimension identique varient néanmoins selon l?intensité de la lumière et de la couleur. La séquence se lit comme un kaléidoscope à travers lequel se scande le fond de l?affaire, l?énigme de l?origine démultipliée. Toutefois, en chacune de ces compositions l?intérieur ouvre sur ma propre ligne de fuite, mon propre passé noué à ce moment douloureux de l?Argentine, ces années de plomb de la dictature ; en chacune de ces compositions, un temps immobile, celui de mon propre enfermement, l?objet perdu.

Intime est la traversée de la France de sud au nord de l?été a l?hiver de la nuit a l?aube. Les séquences son enchaînées avec une camera que fait l?intention de survoler presque sans toucher le réel, immergé comme dans un rêve : le lumières et le chant de la nuit, la brume froide de l?aube, le chant de l?animaux comme un crie que déchire l?espace pour finir dans la désolation de la neige. Intime est aussi l?idée de l?isolement de l?être que se déplie dans le voyage de la vie jusqu?est la mort. Je mis se titre pour le caractère totalement subjective de la façon de filmer. Le film est un première personne. Possiblement c?est un hommage a mon père a sa disparition et a la compréhension que la vie de l?autre peut se voir comme un cercle fermé seulement quand il n?est plus là.

Coming to live in France first meant for Julieta Hanono that she was distanced from her mother tongue.Then to relive the exile of her great-grand parents, from Alep, Alexendria, went from Spain to Argentina. Julieta Hanono wanted to outline their journey, she went to Buenos Aries, then arrived in France. On her arrival in France she began her work with doors and planks of wood, things that were thrown out, which she retrieved. She understood later on, the link with her own history: on the 11th of November 1977, at the age of sixteen, during the military dictatorship in Argentina, she was reported missing. In Paris bits of her buried story began to emerge, her own story in Argentina which she wasn`t able to see. Her horizon expanded and her journey led her to construct a new series of work: "Jewels" is elaborate photographic work about medical instruments and digital images.

Marga et Mariela nous parlent au bord de la route.


Au commencement des années 70, adolescente engagée au côté des montoneros, Julieta Hanono est enlevée et incarcérée par la dictature argentine. Après un effacement de près de trois décennies durant lesquelles son expérience de la disparition semble s?être prolongée, cet épisode aura une influence profonde sur son travail. Au commencement des années 2000, installée en France depuis les années 80, Julieta Hanono renoue avec la pratique artistique, à laquelle elle avait dû brutalement renoncer. Ses pièces, teintée de psychanalyse et de marxisme, associant sculpture, dessin et film, sont traversées par son expérience de la disparition et se présentent comme une répétition de ses souvenirs, une conceptualisation méditative qui tend à la réconcilier avec son passé. Simultanément, les pièces se tournent vers l?extériorité : un mouvement qui correspond au souci de l?artiste de reconstituer son lien à l?autre et d?explorer, à travers celui-ci, les fondements de la socialité.

Travelling Fields
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 8:40 | Norvège | 2009

Travelling Fields focuses on a particular phenomenon occurring through a change of perspective and animated camera movements, as a way of redefining a place and its geography. Sections of the landscape are documented by moving the camera upside/down, one frame at the time, along a track. The film moves between different topographies and locations in the Kola Peninsula, Northern Russia. Shot in Northern Russia, Travelling Fields is the third film in Inger Lise Hansen's inverted perspective trilogy, following Proximity (2006) and Parallax (2009). The films focus on a particular phenomenon occurring through a change of perspective and animated camera movements, as a way of redefining a place and its geography. In these films sections of the landscape are documented by moving the camera one frame at the time, along a track. As each of the earlier films focus on one particular location, Travelling Fields offers a more complex viewing as it moves between different topographies and locations in the Kola Peninsula.

Inger Lise Hansen (b. 1963) was educated at North East London Polytechnic, St. Martin's College of Art, London and holds a Master of Fine Art in Filmmaking from San Francisco Art Institute. She has made a number of experimental animation films with support from Arts Council England, Film London and the Norwegian Film Institute, and has won several international awards such as Gold Prize for animation at the Bilbao Festival of Documentary and Short Films and the Chris Frayne Award for Best Animation at Ann Arbor International Film Festival. Her earlier films have been screened at Tate Modern, London, Institute of Contemporary Art, London, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, Museum of Modern Art, Stockholm and Hiroshima Animation Festival.

TÂKE is a landscape film capturing mysterious natural and man-made fog-obscured scenes in Beijing, Oslo, Azores and Newfoundland. The film observes the spectacle of fog through several different film- and video formats. It explores the behaviour of Super-8 and 16mm film alongside digital video against a visual obstacle. The variable formats are also used to create spatial shifts on the screen and work with ideas of obscured or filtered visions. Associations can be made between the grain in the film material and the tiny particles, or condensation nuclei, needed to form both fog and smog, such as pollen, sea salt, dust and particle pollution. In parallel to the image the soundtrack attempts to create an auditory fog. It compares the loss of visibility to the loss of audible frequencies. During the process of making the film the artist discovered that the way sound gets filtered in fog is similar to her own loss of hearing, where the high frequencies are no longer perceived. In the fog the tiny water droplets block the high frequencies from passing. The soundtrack is composed of sirens and signals, hearing tests samples and environmental sounds.

Inger Lise Hansen (b. 1963) is a visual artist with background in experimental film and animation. She studied Fine Art at University of East London (1989) and Central-St. Martin’s College of Art and Design (1991) and received a Master of Fine Art Filmmaking from San Francisco Art Institute in 1996. Since the nineties her film works has been screened in international institutions and galleries such as Tate Modern, National Gallery London, RI at Jeu de Paume Paris, Tokyo Photographic Art Museum and Malmö Konsthall. She has received a number of prizes from film festivals including Vienna Independent Shorts, Videoex, Ann Arbor and Oberhausen. Inger Lise lives and works in Oslo.

Proximity
Film expérimental | 35mm | couleur | 4:0 | Norvège | 2006

An upside-down time-lapse camera is moved frame by frame on a track along a beach inverting the ground and the sky. The camera moves through four shots recorded in different weather conditions. The result is a mysterious and disorienting space in accelerated time, where the originally solid ground at the top of the frame appears to be sliding past like a lava-stream. Proximity was shot on Super16mm film, on location in North Jutland, Denmark.

In Le Monde Perdu time is slowed down as the camera moves through a local Zoo, the childhood home and a Planetarium. Merging these man-made sceneries into one setting the film comes to offer a reflection on personal and collective memory as well as our longing for belonging.

Mathieu J.H. Hansen is a Master student at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. In his work, he often merges larger cinematic constructions and fictional elements with smaller personal stories and documentary film archives, dealing with themes such as nostalgia, time and man-made nature.

La rencontre entre deux personnes et une relation qui va grandissante est une chose rare et simple. Dans ce scénario particulier, lorsque l´intérêt se porte sur l´aspect de "parité", l´accent est mis sur la communication, la dépendance, la confiance et l´intégrité. C´est une véritable épreuve que de garder un équilibre entre ces deux dimensions.


Je travaille comme artiste et peintre depuis le début des années 90. Mes études ont fait que je me suis intéressée à différents médias, et j´ai travaillé sur des installations en chambre, la sculpture et la photo. J´ai ensuite commencé à travailler avec la vidéo, et c´est ce que je fais depuis lors. J´ai fait des vidéos de films que j´avais étudié et que j´avais redécoupé/fait des remakes. Dernièrement j´utilise uniquement le texte et parfois les images vidéo animées.

Discussion Room 005 2006, video performance in Helsinki, 4`27, loop In a state of claustrophobia, I jump against lightboxes with advertisements representing bodies in an urban landscape. It is an attempt to push away the representations, to broaden the space that surrounds me or to pass through.

Sabrina Harri was born in Espoo, Finland in 1979. She spent most of her childhood in France. She graduated from the Ecole National Supérieur d?Art et de Recherche la Villa Arson in Nice in 2005 and from the post- diploma studies ALPES at the University of Art and Design in Geneva in 2009. Sabrina Harri articulates her creative practice around core issues on our perception of reality and its representations. Not without a certain humour, she embodies this theme in fragile and modular installations, drawings, videos and actions that ably disrupt common sense. By diversion and game, Sabrina Harri discreetly moves objects, as well as social conventions, towards a form of disillusioned poetry. Her work, at first glance trivial, subtly questions the changing values and cultural taboos of contemporary Western society. As well as conducting her researches in the visual arts field, she is also active in the European Vj scene since 2007. She performed many audiovisual acts under few cover names. Sabrina Harri is a member of Finnish Artists? Association MUU since 2006. http://www.muu.fi http://sabrinaharri.blogspot.com

Stock Exchange prends la forme d'une "lettre" vidéo écrite au Footage Aquisitions Department chez Artbeats Software, Inc. Une compagnie américaine dont l'activité principale est de fournir des films et des clips vidéos de haute qualité et sans droit d auteur. Elle les fournit à des client qui les achètent pour produire des annonce ment du service public, publicités à la télévision ou bien même de longs métrages. Dans sa lettre a la compagnie, l'artiste développe une théorie selon laquelle ils pourraient accepter (ou non) des images prises par des vidéographeur free-lance (pour être plus tard re proposées à l'usage des clients) et qui éventuellement demande à Artbeats de définir leur critères de sélection. La réponse, dans laquelle un représentant de la compagnie fait une liste de "conseils de prises de vue et directives", est juxtaposée avec de vrais clips vidéos du catalogue de Artbeats. L??uvre, dans son ensemble, cherche à méditer sur la construction et la transformation d'un sens visuel dans l'économie très fluide (et de plus en plus poussée par les copies) de l'image.

Aura Dies Hard (Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Copy) joins the artist after having just returned from a museum survey exhibition of video art. Through the course of the following video essay, the artist reflects on the rhetoric of "dematerialization" often linked with early video (and conceptual and performance art more generally). Proposing an alternative, "materialist" read, in which the (often unauthorized) duplication and circulation of artist video paradoxically help perpetuate its mythic beginnings, the artist ultimately reveals that copying technologies and art world protocol have made it possible for him to obtain all the videos encountered at the museum show, clips of which are played throughout the narration.

Deux lieux se rapprochent dans un mouvement d?alternance et de réversibilité : le centre financier de la bourse de Tokyo et les cratères volcaniques de l?archipel des Açores. Les fluctuations économiques se relient aux secousses telluriques à la recherche d?un point d?attache et d?équilibre. Un sentiment de douce inquiétude émerge de cet état de rencontre.


Vivant à Paris, Cécile Hartmann née en 1971 à Colmar aborde l?image par les médiums de la peinture, de la photographie et plus récemment de la vidéo. D?emblée, son travail se situe du côté d?une image méditative, dans une négociation entre le mystère, le songe, l?utopie et une réalité contemporaine liée aux grands ensembles urbains, à leur influence sur l?espace terrestre et sur les modes de vie des êtres qui l?habitent. Paradoxalement, la portée critique et politique des ?uvres s?exprime dans des formes magnifiées, non autoritaires aux limites du fantastique. Le minimalisme des compositions, l?emplois de couleurs saturées ou encore la présence fréquente sur les sujets d?une trame poudreuse, confèrent à ses images fixes comme à ses ?uvres vidéos un caractère hypnotique et sensuel. Diplômée de l?Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Paris en 1998 et d?une Licence d?Arts Plastiques et d?Histoire de l?Art en 1994, elle participe notamment à l?exposition La Force de l?Art, en 2006 à Paris, à Emerging Artists à Vienne en 2005. Elle était résidente à la Cité Internationale des Arts à Paris en 2006 et au Japon en 2004 dans le cadre de la Villa Médicis Hors les Murs. Ses ?uvres font partie de la collection du Fonds Nationale d?Art Contemporain.

La nuit, des ouvriers creusent le sable dans une fosse. A l?aube, autour d?eux, les tours immenses d?une ville futuriste se dressent parcourues par de faibles activités humaines. Progressivement des détails apparaissent, les pierres se détachent, le sable coule, les sols se désagrègent. Fragile sur ces bases, la ville semble dans un temps paradoxale de destruction et de construction, une future ruine appelée à se dissoudre. Achrone, adjectif invariant issu de la physique et de la médecine, désigne une région sur laquelle il est impossible d`observer une temporalité précise. Tourné et photographié en 2008 dans les chantiers de la ville de Dubaï, en résonance avec les cycles de travail diurnes et nocturnes des ouvriers, Achrone développe une recomposition abstraite des rapports de force entre architecture et nature.


Après des études à L`Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris et à l`Université des Sciences Humaines de Strasbourg, Cécile Hartmann développe un travail au croisement de l`art contemporain et du cinéma. Dans une perspective picturale et politique, mêlants esthétique post-minimaliste et dimension documentaire, ses films explorent des phénomènes d`échange et d`entrechoquement entre différents mondes et systèmes en mutation. La question d`une transformation poétique de l`histoire par une recomposition des rapports de force entre le construit et l`organique est centrale dans son travail. Elle a vécue plusieurs mois au Japon et à Berlin lors de résidences et de recherches. Ses tournages ont eu lieu à Dubaï, Tokyo, Hiroshima et sur l?archipel des Açores. Son travail est montré aussi bien dans des festivals de cinéma que dans des dispositifs d`exposition où ses films fonctionnent dans des boucles très précises. Plusieurs expositions personnelles lui ont été consacrées récemment : Supra-Continent au Centre d`art Les Eglises, Mirages à demeure au Centre Photographique d`Ile-de-France, Microclimat au CCC. En 2009, elle expose au Musée de la Photographie de Thessalonique et au musée d`Art Moderne de Bogotà et participe à la Force de l?Art en 2006 à Paris et à Emerging Artists au Samlung Essl de Vienne en 2005. Des textes critiques de Pascal Beausse, Paul Ardenne et Eileen Sommerman ont été écrits sur son travail. Elle est née en 1971 à Colmar et vit et travaille à Paris et dans le monde.

Two within close range
Film expérimental | super8 | couleur | 15:0 | Danemark | Palestine | 2011

The project Two within close range is an investigation of urban spaces that remain private or inaccessible despite their public significance. The urban structures and familiar places - a park and a construction site with a disputed past - are used to reflect the socio-political issues in the area outside the walled city of Jerusalem. Instead of remaining invisible and unnoticeable in the everyday environment, aspects of contemporary experience of place are revealed through observations of the usage patterns of the selected sites, the Rockefeller Garden and the Nusseibeh building. In this way, they become the centre of attention. In the work, the two sites are represented through still images, video and 8 mm film corresponding with written narratives weaved together in an attempt to re-write and expand what already exists as the oral history of these places. The written narratives deal with the recent past of the area, as well as historical and political narratives, through a more descriptive and spatial approach. By using official information, personal stories collected from the area and fictional elements, a mix of voices and positions appear in order to reproduce and examine recent, at times unnoticed, history.

Maj Hasager is a Danish artist and filmmaker based in Copenhagen, Denmark. She studied photography and fine art in Denmark, Sweden and the UK, earning an MFA from Malmö Art Academy, Sweden. Her work deals with power structures, identity, memory, the construction of history, and architecture, looking at how these interlinked phenomena are interpreted and represented culturally and spatially. Her artistic approach is research-based and interdisciplinary, and she works predominantly with text, sound, video and photography. She has exhibited her work internationally in events and institutions such as; Society Acts, Moderna Museet Malmö (2014), A voice of ones own, Malmö Konstmuseum (2014), Past Upon Past, Red Barn Photo Gallery, Belfast, Ireland (2013), Decembers, LAZNIA Centre for Contemporary Art, Gdańsk, Poland (2012), Liverpool Biennial, UK (2010). She has been awarded grants in support of her work from the Danish ArtsCouncil, The Danish Arts Foundation, Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (Beirut, Lebanon), ArtSchool Palestine, Danish Centre for Culture and Development and the Danish Arts Agency. She is the programme director of Critical and Pedagogical studies at Malmö Art Academy, and is a guest lecturer at the International Academy of Art – Palestine, Dar al-Kalima College, Bethlehem and University of Ulster, Belfast.

Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur et n&b | 36:0 | Danemark | Italie | 2015

We will meet in the blind spot, 2015 Maj Hasager The film ”We will meet in the blind spot” takes its point of departure from the architecture in and around the Esposizione Universale di Roma (EUR) area in Rome. The EUR was built during the fascist rule and was meant to be the site of the World Exposition in 1942, in addition to being a celebration of the 20-year jubilee for fascism in Italy. The World Exposition in 1942 never took place due to WWII, and the area intended as Mussolini’s “Third Rome” wasn`t completed until the 1960`s - though not in the shape the utopian project was given from the onset. Since then Italian filmmakers have made extensive use of EUR as an exterior location. We will meet in the blind spot is intended as a document of stories and voices that are often lacking in the discussion on migration, both in an Italian context as well as within a broader European perspective. Through encounters with a local Filipino community that is centred around a church in EUR, stories and voices were revealed and the film departs from their personal accounts. In the film, which is situated between documentary and fiction, the focus is on leisure time, interests described by individuals in the group and referencing scenes from Italian film of the 60’s.

In my video I problematize how how scientific research is published now and the changes and demands it is stands forward on regard to the Open Access-declaration and Sci-hub. I have concentrated my work on the idea of authorship, and in the near future when cognitive or artificial intelligence will curate, compile and find correlations over many research disciplines. This will be possible when research will gain open access. I think that we will see knowledge organized in new ways and in cross-disciplines. AI I have made a paraphrase on the old saying which is "The Pen is mightier than the Sword", that is central to my works proposed for this exhibition. The pen is here a metaphor for the Computer with AI / cognitive computing that can read and compile research material. It is not the person/author that is central, it is the knowledge that other can read/build upon that is important. The video is a mixture between documentary and a power-point presentation. In my works I often make archives, and work with several medias to make installations. Knowledge production, science-sociology and bio-politics are central in my artistic work. And I want with my works to make the viewer reflect on what they see/experience. I look upon art as knowledge-production. The ideological foundation for Open access to research I will focus on is the UN declaration of human rights article 27: "Every has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits." We know see that access to research is expensive and more difficult to access, and the privileged Universities has access while African/Asian and South-American Universities and their researchers and student must resort to criminal activities, copying articles from more privileged colleagues or from Sci-hub. This structure correlate to the same structure of wealth in the world. The video was screened at the Research Pavilion during the Venice Biennial in May 2017.

What does it matter how many lovers you have if none of them gives you the universe This project is a transcription for mechanical piano of a lecture by the French psychoanalyst Jaques Lacan. The audience`s response in the lecture is played by a guitar amplifier. The video of the lecture will be screened with a video projector. Lecture The Lecture where he talks about the language as a foundation for our understanding of our surroundings. He is abruptly disrupted by a student that ruins his lecture notes with flour and water, that is the part II of the piece, as a protest against society. He is a situationist, inspired by Debord they start discussing before he ruins Lacan`s cravat/tie and is thrown out of the lecture hall. Lacan then starts lecturing about the protesters views about people and society, about revolution and love. Thoughts about the project In art discourse both Lacan and Debord are central, this is a meeting of their views upon society. This lecture hel place in 1971. The happening is highly coloured by the context, the student protests in France in the late sixties, and revolution as an frequent used word in discussion. The choice of the piano is intended to both be a critique and a hommage to Lacan and postmodern thinkers like him as they first started with theories that revolutionized and transformed how we experience our world, and ended up as virtuous theoretical performers. The audience knew exactly what they were getting when they entered their lectures. The title is a famous quote by Lacan. Here it refers to the two «ideologies» in the piece, the situationist and the psychoanalytic.

UNresolved reflects on the twentieth anniversary of genocide in Srebrenica, where in 1995 more than 8000 men and boys were systematically murdered by the Bosnian Serb army of Republika Srpska (VRS). The title relates to the UN Security Resolution 819, passed on the 16th April 1993 declaring Srebrenica as a ‘safe’ area for refugees – the prelude to what was the largest act of genocide in Europe since the holocaust. Following Haughey’s earlier work in Bosnia, between 1998-2002, he gained exclusive access to buildings and atrocity sites in Serb controlled territory, areas that have hitherto been off limits. Since completing the film in early 2015 the building where the Dutch UN was based has been renovated. As a result Unresolved is also an important historical document which captures the building in its original state. The film includes eyewitness accounts of massacre victims collated from archives such as Human Rights Watch and also directly from people encountered on research visits to Bosnia, with accounts of resistance and survival, testimonies from young Dutch soldiers who were serving in Srebrenica and conflicting accounts from UN personnel and Serb military commanders. The film explores ideological and political narratives informing this emerging and contested history.
