Vidéo expérimentale | dv | couleur | 1:17 | Russie | Cuba | 2006

"Cuba Far" est une parodie qui utilise les jeux de mots. L'action se déroule dans un vieil appartement dans lequel plusieurs familles vivent ensemble. Ils n'ont qu'une salle de bain pour tout l'appartement et personne ne veut la réparer. Pourquoi ? Parce qu'elle est commune. Quand on a de l'argent, on peut s'acheter son propre appartement et s'en occuper à sa guise.

Catastrophe is the fatal turning point or resolution in Ancient Greek drama. The word catastrophe in Greek and Arabic bears the same weight: the catastrophe of Asia Minor, the Exodus from Palestine. When catastrophe strikes, the visual equivalent of extreme shock is to drop whatever one holds in one’s hands. The “unbreakable” Duralex glasses were created in France in the late 50’s and have today become a classic. A symbol of strength and durability, they have spread around the whole world and have been photographed in the hands of Afghan tribesmen, James Bond, and even Osama bin Laden. The “Western” glasses are shot in slow motion as they fall to the ground, bounce, alternate and merge with the more fragile Arabic tea-glasses in a silent and ultimately shared - dance of death. Letters hit the falling glassware with the rhythmic intensity of gunshots, spelling the word catastrophe in Greek, English, and Arabic (nakba). Catastrophe is a reflection on the current events in the world and the increasing loss of value of human life.

A 17-min video commissioned by Ballroom Marfa for the Artist Film International program led by Whitechapel in London. This video depicts a journey through the Institute for New Feeling’s fabricated SEO Marketing campaign, a web of interconnected sites populated with training modules, news articles, facility tours, click bait and social networking sites all linking back to the Institute for New Feeling.

The Institute for New Feeling 3 person collective committed to the development of new ways of feeling, and ways of feeling new. As a group we assume the authoritative voice of the Institution, borrowing from the language of corporate branding as well as that of mainstream medicine, therapy, health and beauty. Our work takes the form of treatments, therapies, retreats and wellness products. We are interested in the wellness industry as a shifting, slippery intersection of capitalism, technological innovation, and the body.

Avalanche is an enhanced water beverage filtered through a human pipeline that traces the flow of water through a city and through the body. A live performance presents municipal water usage as a literal concert of bodies, a system that is improbable, arduous, and flawed. The Avalanche bottling process begins with an ice cap harvested from the Never Summer Mountain Range. The ice melts and travels through a series of human filters, eventually collecting in crystal singing bowls. The sound of this filtration is performed as a concert for a live audience, while at the same time being live broadcast back to the mountain range, causing an avalanche from the vibration of sound waves. The avalanche is bottled for consumption, while also providing new ice to begin the process again. The project consists of a one night live performance, multi-channel video and vending machine stocked with Avalanche water, all of which work together to create a mythology of the product’s source. Passing water between the city and the mountain in an endless feedback loop, IfNf`s filtration process equates the mountain spring with the trickle of water across a dirty windshield, the tears of two middle-aged men, the gargle and spit from a teenager’s mouth, juxtaposing trivial everyday gestures with the looming, dark future of a changing climate.

The Institute for New Feeling is a collective founded by Scott Andrew, Agnes Bolt, and Nina Sarnelle, committed to the development of new ways of feeling, and ways of feeling new. As a group, our identity is always shifting. Borrowing aesthetics and language from wellness and tech industries, market research, speculative design, political propaganda, we assume a familiar yet fragile voice of authority. IfNf has recently shown work at The Getty Center, LA, Ballroom Marfa, TX, MoMA, NY, Istanbul Modern, Turkey, MAAT, Lisbon, Whitechapel Gallery, London, Hammer Museum LA, Fundacion PROA, Buenos Aires, Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart, Jardin Essential, Bruxelles, Recess, NY, and Mwoods, Beijing.

Inspired by the works of the Chinese literary master Qian Zhongshu, HBG: Humans, Beasts and Ghosts is an experimental video game, a playable life simulator in which the audience, assuming the role of God, facilitates the everyday being of the different worlds inhabited by humans, beasts and ghosts. The player can choose to act as an interventionist God, creating and destroying whimsically, or simply watching the worlds unfold with minimal or no interference. A literary adaptation in a digital and playable form, HBG is an allegorical play about human existence, its dilemma and other catastrophes.

INERTIA. Device and residue. Just as an eye blink denies the presence of a specific space or time within a continuum, so a frame freezes a particular place and moment. It is the indivisible unit of the audiovisual mechanism, and its basic inductor is light. Thereby begins a journey that takes us from the real to the represented, finally leading us to that ultimate reality, the document. Inertia deals with the construction of reality. The route is a place and the vector imposes itself on the object. The present then tends to disappear in a continuous movement and what happens is indeed its non-presence. Over its four-minutes length, Inertia responds to the conventions of rhythm, visual axes, and other narrative norms with the rules that we use to assimilate the entire audiovisual spectrum. There occurs a specific accident between the fragile rules of narration and the sophistication of what is staged, confronted with the inescapable physical connotations of gravity, weight, or the volume of the elements in its service.

Carlos Irijalba (Pamplona, 1979) graduated in 2002 at the Fine Arts Basque Country University and studied at UDK Berlin is actually resident at Rijksakademie Amsterdad. Awarded Purificacion Garcia photography first Prize and the Revelation PhotoEspaña Prize among others, he also received the Guggenheim Bilbao Photography grant in 2003 or the Marcelino Botín Foundation in 2007/08. Irijalba has exhibited at international Art Museums, including the CCCB Barcelona or Herzliya Museum Israel. In projects as Unwilling Spectator (2010) or Inertia (2012) works between relative experience of time and space and the collective construction of the real.

TWILIGHT. Twilight consists of the displacing of a floodlighting tower for a football pitch, a space that is hyperdefined by and for spectacle, whose descriptive lighting presents the subject of its attention as the only one that exists. This tower has been transferred to one of Europe?s last forests, Irati, in the north of Navarre, creating as a replica a redefinition of the real as visible employing the language proper to spectacle. The project is about the way in which the West constructs a circuit of the real through light. Natural lighting provides a consistent space-time dimension, while the West?s approach to light, in contrast, goes beyond the manufacture of an eternal day to rupture structures and cycles towards the construction of an abstract medium that loses all relations except in relation to itself. Fire as the first artifice and, later, artificial light have symbolised the place of transformation. Spectacle has inherited the place and hypnotic qualities of fire and has marked out the plane of the visible so that it can be digested, transferring attention towards a series of pseudo-events. Representation of place is now insufficient. The project poses this installation as the need for the real beyond its image. The last place is the place itself.

Carlos Irijalba. Biography Carlos Irijalba (Pamplona, 1979) graduated in 1998 from the Pamplona School of Art and went on to continue his training at the University of the Basque Country where he obtained his Fine Arts degree. He also studied in Berlin at the Universität der Kunst with artist and professor Lothar Baumgarten and actually has a studio residence at ISCP New York. In 2004 he received the First Award for Young Artists, as well as a photography grant from the Guggenheim, to which must be added a Plastic Arts Grant from the Fundacion Marcelino Botín in 2007 and the Purificacion Garcia Photography Award. Carlos has exhibited at national and international Centres, including the CCCB in Barcelona, Miami, New York,Tokyo and Beijing. In previous projects, such as ?Outside comes first? or ?Devices? (both in 2007) he had already worked on the distortion of the construction of reality in the West. So, with Twilight he continues to delve into our understanding of and approach to reality, and spectacle. He is currently developing a photograph and video project in Beijing entitled Dromocracia.

La tendance à négocier l?espace en faveur d?une certaine hégémonie du temporaire s?est développée au point de devenir une réalité stratégique à caractère global, avec des vues économiques et politiques. Actuellement, le gain de temps est une question qui vise exclusivement les trajectoires, les vecteurs, et le territoire abandonne sa signification au profit de ce qui est en mouvement. Les approches développées dans les projets récents de l?artiste, comme "Switch off all Devices" en 2006, ou "Twilight", en 2008, font état d?une capitalisation patente de l?espace et du mouvement. L?espace est assimilé et devient même quelque chose dont on peut se dispenser, alors que le geste ou l?orientation prennent l?avantage et acquièrent une nature visuelle. Le chemin est un endroit et la trajectoire est imposée à l?objet. Le présent tend donc à disparaître dans un mouvement incessant. Le présent tend donc à disparaître dans un mouvement incessant, entraînant sa non présence. Ce projet propose une intervention réelle sur le lieu même du conflit. Les voies rapides de circulation, les autoroutes, matérialisent le lieu du désengagement topographique, de la mise en ?uvre de la coercition, de l?engagement dans le mouvement, ici dans le mouvement incessant sur une bretelle très fréquentée. Cette contradiction peut prendre la forme de déserts isolés au sein de la circulation, et prend ici la forme d?une forêt miniature, réduite à sa fonction symbolique, et dont l?expérience que l?on peut en faire en tant que lieu est impossible, car ce lieu est inaccessible. Les problématiques comme celle de l?échelle ou de la tangibilité sont ici défaites. Une trouée s?ouvre, des temporalités radicalement différentes se succèdent.

Carlos Irijalba est un artiste espagnol né à Pampelune en 1979. Il est diplômé de l?université du Pays basque et de l?UDK, Université des arts de Berlin. Dans son travail, il analyse la manière dont la culture occidentale recrée un medium abstrait qui perd toute relation, hormis à lui-même. Le spectacle a délimité le visible de manière à ce qu?il puisse être rapidement digéré, en transférant l?attention vers une série de pseudo événements. Le travail de Carlos Irijalba tend à faire éprouver l?expérience relative du temps et de l?espace, et de la construction collective du réel.

There is a huge amount of well-known media reports recorded in Sarajevo during the Siege (1992-1996). Media framed those events, streets, places and people into well-known images, common representations of war. Audience around the world was/is able to watch such imagery, over and over again. Adla Isanović erased the whole urban scene and context out of it, leaving only images of people. In that way, she explores how does the audience`s relationship to such imagery of people, whose context is erased-change. After pictures, what remains? What is our relationship with such images, representations, subjectivity, knowledge, with facts, feelings, emotions and experiences?

Yalta: A story of disappearance
Fiction expérimentale | 16mm | couleur | 10:36 | USA | 2012

This short film is made of archival footage shot at the Yalta conference (1945) - a historic meeting between Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin shortly before the end of the WWII. The film mimics the style of a TV documentary and shows behind-the-scenes of the conference through the eyes of a fictitious character, whose possible involvement in espionage and unexplained disappearance comprise the mystery, which the film attempts to resolve, - albeit unsuccessfully. The fictional narrative provides possible reasons and motivations behind the random collection of recordings in the original footage, weaving together several important historical themes associated with the Yalta conference: the deep cultural divide between the Soviets and the Western Allies; the eavesdropping and espionage attempts made by the negotiators, and the premonitions of the upcoming Cold War.

Tatiana Istomina is a Russian-born US artist working in video, painting and drawing. She holds a PhD in geophysics from Yale University (2010) and MFA from Parsons New School (2011). Her works have been shown in the US, Russia and Canada; she had solo shows in New York and Houston. Istomina has completed several artist residencies, including the Core Program (Museum of Fine Arts of Houston) and the AIM residency (The Bronx Museum of Arts, New York). She was nominated for Kandinsky prize and Dedlaus foundation fellowship and received awards such as the Joan Mitchell Foundation Award and the American Austrian Foundation Prize for Fine Arts.

André Iten est Directeur du Centre Saint-Gervais Genève pour l`Image Contemporaine. Soucieux de préserver le patrimoine artistique que constituaient les bandes réalisées par des artistes dans le courant des années 60 et 70, il fut à l`origine d`un plan de restauration, catalogage et archivage des bandes, plan initié en 1990 qui permit de révéler la richesse de cette collection de travaux vidéos à travers un programme historique intitulé "Les pionniers de la vidéo en Suisse", face visible de ce vaste plan de restauration financé par le Fonds municipal d`art contemporain de la ville de Genève. En 1998 il donnait naissance au Centre pour l`image contemporaine, lieu consacré aux activités liées à l`image, dans le souci de donner corps à plusieurs années de réflexion sur les évolutions de l`image et d`activités portées par son engagement artistique.

Scènes de vie quotidienne au bord du Danube, en Serbie ; il ne se passe rien ou presque pour ces hommes échoués au port en même temps que les bateaux. Guidé par un protagoniste aussi attachant qu’un peu naïf et décalé, on parle économie, papillons de nuit, on parle des vieilles chansons de jeunesse, à la mode dans les années 1970. Un film sensible d’observation, d’une société en suspens.

«Ce film est né de mon amour pour la musique africaine contemporaine. Je collectionne des enregistrements de cette musique depuis une vingtaine d`années en me concentrant particulièrement sur la musique des anciennes colonies portugaises Angola, Mozambique, Guinée-Bissau et Cap Vert. Un jour, alors que j`étais en train de classer mes enregistrements de musique angolaise, j`ai découvert que je possédais six versions différentes d`une chanson intitulée Muxima. C`est ainsi que le film est né. » Alfredo Jaar

Alfredo Jaar est né en 1956 à Santiago de Chili. Il a remporté le prestigieux MacArthur Fellowship, ainsi que d?autres prix. Il a étudié l?architecture et la réalisation. Depuis 1982, il vit et travaille à New York. Son travail a été exposé dans des expositions individuelles et de groupe dans les musées du monde entier, dont le New Museum of Contemporary Art de New York, le Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art et au Moderna Museet de Stockholm. Jaar a également présenté son travail aux biennales de Venise, de São Paulo, de Johannesburg, de Sydney, d?Istanbul, et de Kwangju. Son travail a été exposé en 2002 à la Documenta de Kassel avec son installation « Lament of the Images ». Alfredo Jaar est un artiste sans compromis. Ses installations combinent des éléments photographiques, architecturaux, et des images documentaires, et explorent les relations complexes développées entre les nations et les soit disant pays du tiers-monde. Dans son travail, Alfredo Jaar suit et souligne les ironies et les injustices qui caractérisent ces relations, et met à jour la recherche systématique du profit qui y sont sous jacentes.

THE GREEN SERPENT – of vodka, men and distilled dreams
| | couleur et n&b | 20:33 | Suisse | 2013

THE GREEN SERPENT nous emmène dans les profondeurs de l`ivresse: boire de la vodka comme expérience transcendantale. Le serpent vert mord et la pénombre se fait. La beauté de la vie devient alors indissociable d`un vide dévastateur, où l`inspiration et la destruction sont symétriques. Durant ce voyage cinématographique à travers l`hiver russe, loin des images de carte postale, nous rencontrons l`acteur Aleksandr Bashirov, le poète Mstislav Biserov et le physicien Nikolai Budnev. Ils nous dévoilent leur relation à la vodka, le combat intérieur et la poursuite d`esprit divins réveillés par la boisson. Ce Cinépoème abrupt explore le potentiel de la vodka à étendre le monde hors du cadre de la religion et du matérialisme. THE GREEN SERPENT est une méditation sur l`acte de boire, moins un hymne aux piliers de bars qu`une ode à tous ceux qui cherchent le merveilleux en espérant trouver l`extase.
