The truth of the deep colors of Kaspar Kameleon
Doc. expérimental | dv | couleur | 16:30 | France | Allemagne | 2004

Portrait du performer berlinois Kaspar Kameleon. Nous le suivons durant ses répétitions, chez lui et dans le cabaret où il se produit. Il nous emmène dans son village natal, Stockhausen au centre de l'Allemagne, où nous rencontrons ses proches et voyons le bon accueil que lui font les gens . Ils sont heureux de voir son spectacle de Pâques. Nous rencontrons sa mère qui nous livre généreusement ses sentiments quant au fait que son fils soit un performer Drag. Kaspar est une légende de la nuit underground berlinoise. Ce film, le second que lui consacre Fred Koenig ( cf: "the colors of Kaspar Kameleon" 2003 ) est un véritable hommage à cet artiste géréreux et créatif, ainsi qu'une leçon de tolérance.


J'ai voyagé et vécu au Mexique, en Allemagne, à New york, en Haïti, en Afrique du Sud. Ces lieux ont destabilisé ma vision occidentale du monde. Mon inspiration me vient des gens que j'ai pu rencontré durant ces voyages. Leurs histoires et leurs comportements m'aident à développer mon travail. A travers leurs expériences et mes observations, je redéfinis ma personne et mes recherches selon ce que j'appelle "LE DÉSIR D'APPARTENANCE". Cela résume mon travail. Je ne suis ni un observateur ni un anthropologue, j'interagis, je vis, je participe et n'anticipe pas. Via la photographie, la vidéo, la danse, je n'apporte pas au public qu'un divertissement, mais aussi un sujet de réflexion.

En utilisant ma caméra comme projecteur, révélant silencieusement les textures, l'espace narratif se dévoile. Les images et sons saisis rappelleront des lieux dans nos propres souvenirs. Chaque moment déterminé est comme une capsule de temps, un rappel d'un futur oublié dans le passé.


Kolster (1978-...) est une plasticienne et a une formation en design. Récemment, son travail s'est plus orienté vers la vidéo et le film, s'attachant à des détails de paysages urbains et visualisant des fragments d'histoires de ces environnements. Elle a recours à différentes stratégies, de medias tels que la vidéo, le film et la photographie, à des méthodes de recherche appartenant à diverses disciplines d'observation (journalisme, documentaire et archéologie).

Troisième volet de The American West Trilogy (les deux premiers volets étant Nome Road System et Milltown, Montana (VdR, 2010)), ce film est un portrait poignant et complexe de la vie et des paysages du désert de Mojave. Par sa structure désarticulée qui évoque presque le "fingerpicking" minimaliste de John Fahey, tel un blues décharné perdu dans le temps, le film observe la façon dont la vie s`imbrique et s`écarte de la trame d`un mode de vie américain complètement oublié par les politiques de l`idéologie néolibérale. On y entend le poète et détenu Stanley »Spoon« Jackson, condamné en 1977 à perpétuité sans possibilité de libération conditio-nnelle et qui a séjourné dans plus d`une demi-douzaine de prisons californiennes, lire des passages de son autobiographie By Heart. Des images d`un monde imprégné par la pure mythologie américaine sont entrecou-pées et noyées dans la réalité et les conséquences brutales de politiques financières implacables. »Barstow, California« incarne assurément l`autre côté du rêve américain.

IL CRETTO
Vidéo expérimentale | 16mm | couleur | 11:21 | Autriche | Belgique | 2018

In 1968, the island of Sicily suffered a huge earthquake that completely devastated several villages, including Gibellina. Il Grande Cretto, the intervention projected by the Italian artist Alberto Burri for the ruins of Gibellina, a small village in the western part of the Island. This intervention - which took over thirty years to complete, after successive interruptions and recommences - is for me the most crystalline and powerful implementation of what may be described, in an apparent paradox, as a contemporary monument. The radical aspect of this place is that the monument coincides with the memory of the event. It is therefore, a performative piece - a living monument. The monument is the place, on a 1:1 scale. Aglaia Konrad’s films are careful and rigorous approximations to certain places or realities. In her films she works with matter (light, sound, memory and perception), on the one hand, and with language (editing, rhythm and repetition) on the other. The 16mm film IL CRETTO (transferred to video), uses of a split-screen (recorded in- camera) and dual projection.

AGLAIA KONRAD Austrian, self-taught as an artist, lives in Brussels and teaches at the LUCA School of Arts. She participated in numerous international exhibitions such as Dokumenta X, 1997 in Kassel; "Cities on the Move" 1998 and 1999 (Bordeaux, New York, London, Helsinki, Wien); Shanghai Biennale 2000, "Gazes of Architecture on the Body", Tokyo Wonder Site and Museum of Contemporary Art, Kumamoto, "In the First Circle", Tapies Foundation Barcelona, EMINENT DOMAINS (proper names), Robert Miller Gallery, New York City; Hollein, MAK Vienna; The Brutalism Appreciation Society, HMKV Dortmund, 2009 a soloshow at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Siegen; Sainsbury Gallery Norwich; Fotohof Salzburg; STUK und Netwerk Aalst; in 2016 M Museum, Leuven.

Published books: Elasticity (2002); Iconocity (2005); Desert Cities (2008); Carrara (2011 ); Zweimal Belichtet (2013); Aglaia Konrad: From A to K ; SCHAUBUCH: Skulptur (2017).

Das Haus
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 21:40 | Autriche | 2014

Das Haus deepens the exploration of sculptural architecture that Aglaia Konrad conducted with the series of 16mm films Concrete and Samples. Shot in a house designed by architect Juliaan Lampens in Sint-Martens-Latem (Belgium), the film resumes the artist’s interest on the possibilities of the cinematic medium to generate –rather than capture - an architectural experience. An experience which, in this film, surpasses the visual to mobilize bodily perception and even desire. Konrad’s editing carefully measures the doses of perceptual information it provides to our orientation drive in a process that departs from an initial willingness to orient oneself towards the pleasure of surrendering to disorientation and fragmentation. A disorientation that could be called “perverse” in the sense that Freud bestowed to the word –perverse pleasures are those which linger in the detour; in the resistance to result in a productive goal– insofar as the film replaces the production of a representation of space in favour of perceptive defamiliarization and tactile pleasure. Architecture and film are constantly looking at each other in a piece in which "angle", "transition", "cut", "sequence", "frame", " joint", " fold " and "rhythm" are notions that are spread from one discipline to the other as if the camera and editing would be reading the space as a composition score. There are two architectural comparisons that are often applied to filmmaking: the idea of cinema as a "window" and as “mirror". Das Haus, entangles and complicates those comparisons by treating windows as interfaces that blur the inside and outside and whose transparency acquires materiality, and by using mirrors as devices that disrupt form pushing it to a state of potentiality. In Das Haus the screen is no longer a window but rather a skin: for it is a body interface, a tactile surface and a membrane that is neither safe nor transparent because it reveals its inner cinematic compositional strategies.

Aglaia Konrad is a photography based artist living in Brussels whose work has focused mainly on metropolitan urban space. She has been advising researcher at the Jan Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht and is currently teaching at the Hogeschool Sint-Lukas in Brussels. She had presented her work in solo exhibitions in Siegen, Antwerp, Geneva, Graz, Cologne and New York, among other cities, as well as in international group shows such as Documenta X (1997), Cities on the Move (1998-1999) and Talking Cities (2006). Her work has been documented in several exhibitions catalogues and monographic publications such as 'Elasticity' (2002) and 'Iconocity' (2005). For her book 'Desert Cities' (2008) she received the Infinity award for the best photo book 2009 of the International Center for Photography, New York. The book 'Carrara' (2011) won the Fernand Baudin Prize 2011. Before the trilogy Concrete & Samples (2009-2010) she made the film Sculpture House (2008, 12'05") based on a house built in 1968 around Liège (BE) by Jacques Gillet, Felix Roulin and René Greisch.

La Scala
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 12:24 | Autriche | Belgique | 2016

The subject of Aglaia Konrad’s 16mm films is modernist architecture but rather than a form of architecture on film, or film on architecture, her films investigate the potential for film to embody the experience of architecture as sculpture. The protagonist here is ‘La Scala’, a villa on Lake Garda, designed by Vittoriano Vigano for André Bloc in 1958. The ‘multiple projection’ (split-screen) of La Scala proposes a multiplicity of perspectives and, more significantly, a succession of combined images.

Aglaia Konrad (1960, Salzburg) criss-crosses urban spaces. Her photographs, films and installations zoom in on exceptional buildings and the transformation of cities. She focuses on the way architecture is visualised and exhibited. Aglaia Konrad lives in Brussels and teaches at LUCA School of Arts. She had presented her work in solo exhibitions in Siegen, Antwerp, Geneva, Graz, Cologne and New York, among other cities, as well as in international group shows such as Documenta X (1997), Cities on the Move (1998-1999) and Talking Cities (2006). Her work has been documented in several exhibitions catalogues and monographic publications such as ‘Elasticity’ (2002) and ‘Iconocity’ (2005). For her book ‘Desert Cities’ (2008) she received the Infinity award for the best photo book 2009 of the International Center for Photography, New York. The book ‘Carrara’ (2011) won the Fernand Baudin Prize 2011. In 2016 she published ‘From A to K’ (Buchhandlung Walther Konig).

Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 29:28 | Pays-Bas | Curaçao | 2015

In the experimental documentary Play Curacao (2015) contemporary games, social rituals and leisure typical for the Caribbean island of Curacao are thoroughly investigated through a mix of observations, discussions and performative acts. During a four month residency at the Instituto Buena Bista artists/filmmakers Kasper Jacobs and Frank Koolen followed a wide variety of sub-cultures and singletons in their free-time routines resulting in a personal taxonomy of the Caribbean ‘Homo Ludens’. Play Curacao offers a dynamic, absurd and playful insight in the versatile everyday society and culture of Curacao.

Kasper Jacobs and Frank koolen, both visual artists working in the field of film and photography, met in 2007 and since then have been assisting each other frequently in a range of individual projects. Through these collaborations they created a mutual frame of preference and understanding. Their shared interest in subcultures and the structures they create to frame their own reality form the fundament of `Play Curacao` and future projects. Kasper Jacobs (1981, Bergen, NL) studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Frank Koolen (1978, Maastricht, NL) studied at the HKU in Utrecht, De Ateliers and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam.

Title: NS-12 Authors: Kristjan Loðmfjorð (is) / Konrad Korabiewski (dk/pl/is) Form 1: Audio Visual installation for 8 channels, 1 subwoofer and 1 HD projector Form 2: DCP master with 5.1 audio for cinema/festival screening, 52 min. NS-12 (2014-2018) is audiovisual collaboration between the filmmaker Kristjan Loðmfjorð and the composer Konrad Korabiewski. Using the means of sound and image, NS-12 poetically portrays the fishing trawler Gullver NS-12 based in Seyðisfjorður, East Iceland. The trawler is a self-contained world; a space which functions both as workplace and as collective living arrangement, which is also personally and physically affective. For the people working on board the ship might be seen as a tool, but artistically it is perceived as a living organism, as a musical instrument triggering the senses, and as a visual landscape impressing with textures and colors. The constant sensation of motion from the heaviness and roughness of the rolling trawler conveys a state of confusion or reverie, like that triggered by seasickness. The ship itself is always in the foreground, with the life on board as the background. Thus NS-12 captures the moment of an everyday situation applying an expressionistic approach for an experimental outcome. It communicates the human spirit, essential for the experience of the trawler at sea with the ceaseless sound and vibrations of the engine. The original soundscape for the work is realized as a contemporary composition where all the sonic material is sourced from reality, whereas the imagery is mainly based of still-life recordings where visual perception shines above realism. Together the two mediums explore the complete body of the trawler as a visually intriguing labyrinth, where each room has its own way of carrying the sound from the engine. The complete work including sound and image is purely field recorded, accompanied with voiceover recordings performed by the Seyðisfjorður Church Choir and the fourth (and Europe`s first female) president of Iceland, Mrs. Vigdis Finnbogadottir. Recordings on board Gullver NS-12 took place during the period of September 2012 - December 2013. Methodology: In the research process, the artists went out on three tours on the trawler to capture sound and image in various seasons and weather conditions. The machinery and the captain’s diaries were also examined, extracting relevant texts. These transcripts were integrated into the final piece as subtitled and as read text, as they are very evocative and give an irrational sense of the trawler`s path: such as the ship`s state examination while in the dockyard, weather reports from out on open sea, injuries on board, and mechanical breakdowns. 8 channel installation: A sound and video installation preferably presented by itself in a separate exhibition room. This 8 channel installation configuration,referring to the 8 cylinders of the trawler´s engine aims at conveying the physical presence of the trawler´space.

In a hinterland within the “elsewhere” a lone character meanders in search of meaning and understanding. Hither and dither doth he wander reflecting upon all things that came before and all things hereafter. The work is a companion piece to “ttingâ” latest feature film LEK AND THE DOGS and was shot in the Atacama desert in Chile. Produced to run on a loop in a gallery “space” or as a single screen the film exemplifies “ttings ability to take an idea and run with it until it spills over into the expanded cinematic “elsewhere”. With the beguiling presence of French performance artist Xavier Tchili and sublime cinematography by Nick Gordon-Smith the work is designed to be experienced within the pitch black and the sound up high.

Andrew ‘tting was born between the mountains and the sea in Elmstead Woods in 1959. After some early forays into market trading and scrap-metal dealing he travelled to Scandinavia to become a Lumberjack. He returned home in the 80’s to study for a BA Honours Degree in Fine Art at Ravensbourne College of Art and Design and then graduated with a Masters Degree from The Slade, London. He currently lives and works between Hastings in England and Fougax-et-Barrineuf in the French Pyrenees. He teaches part-time at the University for the Creative Arts where he is Professor of Time Based Media. He has made numerous experimental short films, which were awarded prizes at international film festivals. Gallivant (1996), was his first feature film, a road/home movie about his four-month journey around the coast of Britain, with his grandmother Gladys and his daughter Eden, which won the Channel 4 Prize at the Edinburgh Film Festival for Best Director and the Golden Ribbon Award in Rimini (Italy). The film went on in 2011 to be voted number 49 as Best British Film of all time by the UK publication Time Out. In 2001 he directed the first of his Earthworks Trilogy; This Filthy Earth, in 2009 Ivul, and in 2018 Lek And The Dogs. All three films were released theatrically throughout the UK and France. As well as exhibitions of his work in the UK he has also presented retrospectives of his work in Belgium, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland and Switzerland. His twenty-eight year oeuvre to date has moved from early live-art inflected, often absurdist pieces, through darkly comic shorts teasing out the melancholy surrealism at the heart of contemporary Englishness to eight resolutely independent feature films that take biography, landscape and journeys as springboards into the making of visually striking and structurally inventive enquiries into identity, belonging, history and notions of the folkloric.

The daily life of migrants (Syrian, Kurdish, Pakistani, Afghani and other) in the camp of Idomeni, in Greece. People waiting in queues for food, tea and doctors; waiting to cross the border. One day, Europe closes the West Balkan Route for them once and for all. The «residents» of Idomeni decide, in their turn, to occupy the train tracks, blocking the trains that carry goods across the border.

East of Paradise est le dernier volet de la trilogie Wild Wild East du réalisateur Lech Kowalski. Réalisé après The Boot Factory et On Hitler`s Highway, son nouveau documentaire est de loin le plus personnel. Dans la première partie d`East of Paradise il laisse la parole à Maria Werla Kowalsi, sa mère, qui évoque ses années de guerre. Avec une précision inédite et un sens naturel de la langue, elle conte sa déportation de Cracovie aux goulags soviétiques, survenue au début de la Seconde Guerre Mondiale. Madame Kowalski est convaincue que quiconque n`a pas vécu semblable drame, n`est pas à même de pleinement appréhender cette sombre période de l`histoire. Comme défié par la profondeur et la portée de l`horreur et de la tragédie vécues par sa mère, Kowalski plonge ensuite dans son propre passé mouvementé. Réutilisant des images d`?uvres antérieures (Gringo, Walter and Cutie, D.O.A.) dont la qualité contraste fortement avec celle, très nette, des images de sa mère, il montre les ghettos sociaux du porno et de la drogue. Les images de Lech renvoient à une existence marginale librement choisie, alors que le récit de sa mère est un hommage au désir de survie humain. Ce que raconte Lech n`est comparable au récit oppressant de sa mère que dans une mesure toute modeste. Toutefois, c`est précisément ce fossé infranchissable qui transforme la juxtaposition de deux mondes foncièrement différents en un double portrait aussi controversé qu`intrigant. East of Paradise a remporté, en 2005, le prix du meilleur Film Alternatif à la Mostra - Festival de Venise.


Lech Kowalski est issu d`une famille polonaise. Né à Londres, il grandit aux Etats-Unis. A l`âge de 18 ans il part pour New York où il découvre la musique punk, la drogue et le porno. Du point de vie cinématographique, Kowalski est tributaire de Shirley Clarke. Ses films sont générés par une réalisation fébrile, des enchaînements associatifs et des lignes de récit qui s`entremêlent. Parmi les documentaires antérieures de Kowalski, citons Sex Stars (1977), Death On Arrival (1978), Gringo ? Story of a Junkie (1985), Rock Soup (1991), Born to Lose (1999), Hey is Dee Dee Home (2002), Camera Gun (2003) et Charlie Chaplin in Kabul (2003).

Cette vidéo , qui fait partie de la série "In Art Dreams Come True", est une sorte de remake du clip de la chanson de Gwen Stefani "What Are You Waiting For?". Jouant avec les clichés de la féminité et de la masculinité, Kozyra endosse ici le rôle non d'une diva de l'opéra mais d'une popstar jouant une pompom girl dans un clip vidéo tourné dans les vestaires des hommes. Kozyra effectue le genre de danse et d'acrobatie de circonstances (la chorégraphie est de Anna Godowska), secouant ses pompons, vêtue d'une mini jupe blanche, et essayant d'attirer l'attention des athlètes masculins en train de se changer dans les vestiaires après l'entraînement. Parmi les chanteurs, on trouve des membres de l'équipe de la gallerie Zachêta. Dans ce bref clip vidéo, qui raconte une histoire de rébellion, Kozyra a inclus de nombreuses références à ces oeuvres précédentes.
