Voguing is a form of dance that was created on the streets and drag balls of Harlem by a subculture of young mostly poor, gay, trans, black and/or Latino’s in the 1980s. The Ballroom scene in which Voguing exists in is an art form that’s closely linked with ideas of fashion, luxury, and social and economic mobility. In the past few years the Voguing and Ballroom scene has seen a resurgence in its popularity spreading across the globe. No longer limited to members of American urban black and Latino gay communities it can be found as far away as Russia now. Historically the Ballroom scene included society`s most marginalized: minorities within minorities within minorities. In a world where they have been rejected, ballroom not only accepted these people for who they were, it celebrated them! While this resurgence in popularity is celebrated by many there is concern by some that with Voguing’s success in crossing over into the mainstream to communities of the "non marginalized" that there is a risk the dance may slowly be losing its connections to its roots. Featuring archival footage shot by the filmmaker himself from legendary Balls from the late 1980’s to the 2015. With the House of Pendavis, House of Chanel, House of Fields, Love Ball, House of Latex, and the House of Xtravaganza.

The film evolves from more than 7,000 educational slides left in the cabinet of Somkiat Tangnamo, a Professor of Aesthetics and a founder of Thailand`s `virtual university`, who passed away several years ago. These slides weren`t in use anymore in today`s art education. Thus, it represents the mode of teaching in the past. Watching and piecing these slides together is a journey to an art education in Thailand. After I stay with these slides for months, I set a goal to create a workpiece from Somkiat`s slide archive. Getting started, I examined these slides one by one. They were categorized and put separately in boxes with a criterion unknown to us. I also correlated these slides with the hundreds of articles that this professor had translated into Thai for teaching`s sake. In search of stories in this archive, I tried putting these photos together to create a new meaning out of them.

Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 69:0 | Suède | 2015

“The light and shade of the ornaments – a rehearsal” is a micro biography of the glass workers from the Sudetenland that were given employment in the glass industry, Sweden, after the 2WW. Two actors are taking turns facing each other reading an extensive amount of text, and two hands are leafing through photos. The 1st chapter tells the story of the voyage and dislocation of the Sudeten Germans from Czechoslovakia to Sweden. The narrative elucidates how, and why, this workforce was brought over, and the effect of the migration on both a personal and industrial level, including how the labour movement organized the new arrivals. The 2nd chapter is turned towards the local context, how Swedish glassworks were inspired by the traditions of the Sudeten Germans, in Bohemia. We are told about what happened to one of the world’s last kingdoms of crystal, Bohemia, during and after the Nazi occupation and under Communism. How centuries of migrations from central Europe has influenced the Swedish glass industry, a vital element for understanding how the Sudeten Germans were regarded as craftsmen. The narrative highlights how the destinies of the glass workers were shaped by war and different political systems.

Outside is Present
Vidéo | 4k | couleur | 14:57 | Danemark | 0 | 2017

Outside is present is based on the often stereotype and one-sided media images from the world`s many focal points and from provincial places far out in the countryside. In Outside is present blend these two confrontational media representations, so a small village in Denmark is hereby transformed into one of the world`s focal points. The small well-known facets of the village thus change character in fictionalization and can either occur as everyday realisme, idyllic or scary, depending on the eye that looks: whether it is the individual in relation to the village, the village in relation to the capital, the capital in relation to the country or the country in relation to the world. A similar superfictional view of the world led Miguel de Cervantes` famous madman Don Quixote.

Sounds of slow traffic on a rainy street. A man in a cheap suit lies on the bed in a quiet apartment. Snakes entwine him, crawling slowly in and out of his clothes,

The work of the Irish artist Patrick (or Paddy) Jolley spans photography, video installation and cinema.. Its starting points lie in those moments where time seems to move abnormally or an atmosphere becomes unnaturally dense or thin. These anxious impressions are then interwoven with a range of images of dense metaphoric resonance.. Symbols with many layers of association that can appear deeply significant or equally empty of meaning. The tone is dark and redolent with melancholia but retains a possibility of the absurd or slapstick comedy. His work shows frequently in galleries and cinemas around the world and is in the collections of several major museums.

Fall
Film expérimental | 16mm | noir et blanc | 11:0 | Irlande | 2008

L'ennui engendre sa propre rêverie. Ici devient là-bas, qui pourrait être n?importe où. Cela forme une coïncidence avec le générique : les répétitions érodent le sens des lieus et rendent les bâtiments apparemment moins solides. La logique de ces déplacements fait que les choses partent à la dérive. Des petites maisons s?effondrent et brûlent. Le mobilier se fracasse dans un parking vide. Histoire de petites destructions, pathétiques et momentanément cathartiques.


Paddy Jolley a commencé à faire des films après avoir accidentellement largué un mannequin de figure humaine grandeur nature du haut du pont de la 59e avenue de New York. La forme de la chute fut si triste et dramatique qu'elle a forcé l?auteur à remettre en question sa vieille croyance selon laquelle il pouvait dire tout ce qu'il voulait dans le cadre d'une photo. Peu de temps après, il a commencé à collaborer avec le cinéaste américain Reynold Reynolds. En employant les images et les méthodes des photographies de Jolley, ils ont réalisé ensemble « Seven Days ?til Sunday » (1998), « Drowning Room » (2000) et « Burn » (2001), autant de films caractérisés par un humour noir et une beauté triste. Ces ?uvres ont été exposées dans des galeries et des musées, sous forme de films en boucle ou d?installations, et projetées de nombreuses fois lors de festivals de cinéma où elles ont remporté plusieurs prix. Leur collaboration a pris fin avec l'achèvement du long-métrage Suger en 2004.

Corridor
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 8:0 | Irlande | 2009

The camera tracks through an endless system of institutional corridors. Progress is illusory - the present is continuous. Other personalities move in the corridors engaged on unspecified errands.We look to them for some sense of kinship or common purpose but any affinity we find only reinforces our alienation.

The root of the Irish artist Patrick Jolley?s films and photographs lies in the subjective experience of the passage of time. He expands on sensations of inertia, solidification or dislocation through physical displacements and rearrangements. The familiar is thus subverted and rendered uncanny. In one work furniture falls from the sky and shatters in an empty carpark, in another the occupants of a house go through domestic life in an atmosphere thickened into liquid, while in another the fireplace vomits copiously. The results are redolent with melancholia yet infused with the kind of resigned humour that surfaces when everything is lost. His work has shown widely in galleries and film festivals. It is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Irish Museum of Modern Art and the Lyons Museum of Contemporary Art.. He currently lives in Slane, Co. Meath. Ireland.

Keijupuisto est un documentaire qui traite d'un lieu en Finlande à Lahti pour les sans-abris et de ses habitants, personnes qui certes ont du temps mais bien peu d'autres choses. Les hommes et femmes habitant à Keijupuisto attendent de pouvoir emménager dans leur propre maison. Certains attendent depuis des années. Pendant les périodes difficiles ils ne se tournent pas vers les autorités locales pour demander de l'aide mais vers Dieu. L'Etat providence est peu préoccupé par ces lieux de fortune pour les sans-abris. L'auteur souhaitait donner une voix à ces personnes qu'elle dit invisibles dans la société contemporaine.

Cette-fois il a rassemblé mais aussi irrité la foule, prête à donner à ce faiseur d' histoires, une part de leur opinion. Mais la déception fut grande. Sur le lieu un écriteau était dressé annonçant à qui le territoire appartenait et au lieu du Wolfman (l'Homme-loup) apparaissait alors un assistant qui répétait à voix-haute le message que le Wolfman lui-même lui transmittait par téléphone-portable.

Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 28:50 | Royaume-Uni | USA | 2014

Headlands Lookout is an experimental documentary by collaborative artists Jacob Cartwright and Nick Jordan, centred a dramatic stretch of Pacific coastline at the entrance to San Francisco Bay. The film traverses the area’s cultural and natural landscape, presenting a ‘wild’ environment mediated by human activity. From fog-shrouded hills to singular details of place, Headlands Lookout presents literal and figurative echoes of the area`s history, as both a former military base and the home to the avant-garde artists, writers and activists of the post-war ‘San Francisco Renaissance’. Locations range from the functional architecture of concrete gun emplacements and Cold War missile sites to the dense woodland valley where nature is slowly reclaiming the derelict buildings of Druid Heights, a 1960s counterculture community, and home to abandoned, circular library of Zen philosopher Alan Watts. The film`s soundtrack features archive recordings of Alan Watts, and his ideas on ecology and society, alongside poetry by former Druid Heights residents Gary Snyder and Elsa Gidlow, and Bay Area poet Michael McClure. Headlands Lookout is punctuated throughout by contemporary call records to the Marin County Sheriff, offering glimpses of individual, human-scale dramas, set against a backdrop of ever-present nature and delineated landscapes.

Jacob Cartwright and Nick Jordan are artists based in Manchester, UK. Their work has been exhibited internationally, including at ICA, London; Centre for Contemporary Culture, Moscow; Academia de Cine, Madrid; and Musée du Quai Branly, Paris.

A short film which centres upon the proliferation of bird houses, erected to attract the Purple Martin - `America`s Most Wanted Bird`. The extraordinary abundance of man-made habitats reflects a desire to live in close proximity to nature, in a suburban, small town setting. Over one million North Americans have installed Purple Martin bird houses. The migratory birds, which are believed to consume large quantities of insects, are now entirely dependent upon man-made housing during their breeding season.

Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 8:45 | Royaume-Uni | 2011

American Water is a short documentary which focuses on two characters, Glenda and ?Redbeard?, who live and work alongside the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, in southern Illinois. Glenda runs her father?s business, ?Fred?s Fish Market?, from a small wooden shack next to the levees protecting the town of Cairo. ?Redbeard? ekes out a living in the backwoods of Thebes, on the banks of the Mississippi. Both Glenda and Redbeard talk with disarming candour and shrewd folk-wisdom about the traditional culture, declining economy and fragile ecology of this ?heartland? region bordering the American South. Demonstrating how to gut a catfish and spit-train a dog, American Water is a portrait of two spirited individuals existing on the margins of society, where two mighty rivers meet, in a forgotten corner of the United States.

Jacob Cartwright & Nick Jordan are artists and film-makers based in Manchester, UK.

A short film which centres upon the proliferation of bird houses, erected to attract the Purple Martin - `America`s Most Wanted Bird`. The extraordinary abundance of man-made habitats reflects a desire to live in close proximity to nature, in a suburban, small town setting. Over one million North Americans have installed Purple Martin bird houses. The migratory birds, which are believed to consume large quantities of insects, are now entirely dependent upon man-made housing during their breeding season.

Nick Jordan is an artist whose practice encompasses painting, video, drawing, found-objects and publications. Jordan`s work centres upon the relationship between the natural world and our multifaceted cultural histories. Nick Jordan frequently collaborates with fellow artist Jacob Cartwright, and is based in Manchester, UK

American Water
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 8:45 | Royaume-Uni | 2011

American Water is a short documentary which focuses on two characters, Glenda and ?Redbeard?, who live and work alongside the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, in southern Illinois. Glenda runs her father?s business, ?Fred?s Fish Market?, from a small wooden shack next to the levees protecting the town of Cairo. ?Redbeard? ekes out a living in the backwoods of Thebes, on the banks of the Mississippi. Both Glenda and Redbeard talk with disarming candour and shrewd folk-wisdom about the traditional culture, declining economy and fragile ecology of this ?heartland? region bordering the American South. Demonstrating how to gut a catfish and spit-train a dog, American Water is a portrait of two spirited individuals existing on the margins of society, where two mighty rivers meet, in a forgotten corner of the United States.

Jacob Cartwright & Nick Jordan are artists and film-makers based in Manchester, UK. Their collaborative work explores the relationship between the natural world and our multifaceted cultural histories.

Headlands Lookout
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 28:50 | Royaume-Uni | USA | 2014

Headlands Lookout is an experimental documentary by collaborative artists Jacob Cartwright and Nick Jordan, centred a dramatic stretch of Pacific coastline at the entrance to San Francisco Bay. The film traverses the area’s cultural and natural landscape, presenting a ‘wild’ environment mediated by human activity. From fog-shrouded hills to singular details of place, Headlands Lookout presents literal and figurative echoes of the area`s history, as both a former military base and the home to the avant-garde artists, writers and activists of the post-war ‘San Francisco Renaissance’. Locations range from the functional architecture of concrete gun emplacements and Cold War missile sites to the dense woodland valley where nature is slowly reclaiming the derelict buildings of Druid Heights, a 1960s counterculture community, and home to abandoned, circular library of Zen philosopher Alan Watts. The film`s soundtrack features archive recordings of Alan Watts, and his ideas on ecology and society, alongside poetry by former Druid Heights residents Gary Snyder and Elsa Gidlow, and Bay Area poet Michael McClure. Headlands Lookout is punctuated throughout by contemporary call records to the Marin County Sheriff, offering glimpses of individual, human-scale dramas, set against a backdrop of ever-present nature and delineated landscapes.

Jacob Cartwright and Nick Jordan are artists based in Manchester, UK. Their work has been exhibited internationally, including at ICA, London; Centre for Contemporary Culture, Moscow; Academia de Cine, Madrid; and Musée du Quai Branly, Paris. Their collaborative practice is cross-disciplinary, encompassing video, drawing, painting, photography, objects, publications and events, often exploring the relationship between the natural world and our multifaceted cultural histories.

And the living is easy
Fiction | hdv | couleur | 75:0 | Liban | 2014

"Beyrouth, en 2011. La ville est plongée dans une étrange accalmie alors que la région autour s’embrase. A travers cinq personnages, principalement des acteurs non-professionnels, Lamia Joreige réalise un portrait unique de sa ville natale. Qu’il soit attaché commercial, musicien, étudiant, acteur, chacun livre son attachement profond à Beyrouth et sa difficulté ou impossibilité d’y vivre. Pendant plusieurs mois, la cinéaste leur a demandé de jouer des scènes qu’elle a imaginé en s’inspirant de leur vie amoureuse, professionnelle ou amicale. Elle a fictionnalisé leur quotidien, faisant ainsi ressortir leur malaise. Ces scènes ont été jouées dans les quartiers où ils habitent, dans les lieux qui leurs sont chers. La ville et leurs sentiments sont intimement imbriqués. Sous la beauté des images, sous l’apparente douceur de leur vie se profile l’angoisse de l’instabilité politique au Proche-Orient et la peur d’une guerre dévastatrice."


"Born in Lebanon in 1972, Lamia Joreige is a visual artist and filmmaker who lives and works in Beirut. She uses archival documents and fictitious elements to reflect on the relation between individual stories and collective history. She explores the possibilities of representation of the Lebanese wars and their aftermath, and Beirut, a city at the center of her imagery. Her work is essentially on time, the recordings of its trace and its effects on us."

Durant la guerre civile du Liban, des centaines de personnes ont disparu. Dans la plupart des cas, leur corps n'a pas été retrouvé et les circonstances de leur disparition n'ont pas été élucidées. Aujourd'hui je parcours Beyrouth, posant aux habitants que je rencontre la même question : "Connaissez-vous quelqu?un qui a été enlevé ici, durant la guerre ?" Mes investigations me conduisent dans de nombreux quartiers autour de la "ligne verte", qui séparait Beyrouth Est et Ouest, et où les milices avaient établi leurs barrages, scènes de beaucoup d'enlèvements et de crimes. J?essaye ainsi d?enclencher le processus de mémoire et de mettre en évidence la multiplicité des discours présents sur la guerre et l?ampleur de ce drame. Aussi, à travers mon parcours, je dessine une cartographie personnelle de cette ville.

Nights and Days
Doc. expérimental | dv | | 17:0 | Liban | 2007

Nights and Days raconte l?expérience de la guerre d?un point de vue personnel, à partir de notes écrites et filmées durant l?été 2006. La première partie qui ressemble à un journal de guerre sans en être un, alterne des plans de jour avec des plans de nuit, qui sont construit avec la bande sonore, pour exprimer l?idée du passage du temps, l?attente, les peurs et les transformations vécues dans ces circonstances inhabituelles. La deuxième partie est un voyage au Sud-Liban qui a été dévasté durant cette guerre. De beaux paysages sereins s?alternent avec des ruines et des destructions, avec pour seul son, une musique. Ici aucun mot ne peut exprimer la dévastation. Nights and Days réfléchit à la relation entre image et son et aussi à « l?horreur » qui peut se trouver derrière la ?beauté?. Dans ces beaux paysages urbain et naturels, seuls quelques détails révèlent la présence et la violence de la guerre.

Juillet 2006. Une guerre éclate au Liban. Une nouvelle guerre mais pas une de plus, une guerre qui vient briser les espoirs de paix et l?élan de notre génération de trentenaires. Nous ne savons plus quoi écrire, quelles histoires raconter, quelles images montrer. Nous nous demandons : « Que peut le cinéma ? » . Cette question, nous décidons de la poser vraiment avec l?aide d?une « icône », une comédienne qui représente pour nous le cinéma, Catherine Deneuve. Elle va rencontrer à Beyrouth notre acteur fétiche, RabihMroué. Ensemble, ils parcourent les régions touchées par le conflit. à travers leurs présences, leur rencontre, nous espérons retrouver une beauté que nos yeux ne parviennent plus à voir. Une aventure imprévisible, inattendue commence alors?


Nés à Beyrouth, ils travaillent conjointement en tant que plasticiens et cinéastes. Ils ont réalisé des courts-métrages, Ramad (Cendres) en 2003 etOpen the door, please ( du filmcollectif Enfances) en 2007 et des longs-métrages de fiction Al Bayt el zaher (Autour de lamaison rose) en 1999 et A Perfect Day en 2006. Ils ont également réalisé des documentaires tels que Khiam en 2000 ou El film el maoud (Le Film perdu) en 2003 et Khiam 2000-2007 en 2008. Leurs films ont été présentés dans un très grand nombre de festivals où ils ont reçu de nombreux prix et ont été accueillis avec enthousiasme tant par la critique que par les spectateurs. Leur travail cinématographique s?accompagne d?une recherche dans les arts plastiques. Ils ont ainsi créé plusieurs installations photo ou vidéo et exposent régulièrement dans des centres d?art, des musées ou des galeries. Leur prochaine exposition individuelle aura lieu le 11 décembre 2008 auMusée d?art moderne de la ville de Paris. Ils enseignent à l?université au Liban et participent à de nombreuses publications.
