The Valley
Vidéo | hdv | couleur et n&b | 14:18 | Nouvelle-Zélande | Royaume-Uni | 2019

Devon’s moors are the backdrop for this hybrid film that constructs an imaginary community and frames sentiments of belonging at a time when parochialism and nationalism are globally prevailing. Inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of the Baskervilles, Hipkins grafts portraits of his forebears across Devon?s uncanny landscapes. A subtext of Doyle’s classic novel negotiates yearnings for a homecoming and a mythical ancestral land.

Gavin Hipkins (b. 1968) is a New Zealand-based artist. He holds a Master of Fine Arts from the University of British Columbia. He is currently Associate Professor at Elam School of Fine Arts at the University of Auckland.

His recent moving image works engage film as a cinematic art that blurs conventional genres of essay film, documentary and experimental narrative structures. His work has been exhibited widely over the last two decades. His solo exhibition The Homely will open at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney in July 2020. Recent exhibitions and screenings include: Videoex, Switzerland (2019); 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia (2018); International Film Festival Rotterdam (2018, 2015); International Short Film Festival Oberhausen (2017, 2016); The Jewish Museum, New York (2015); Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), New York (2014); City Art Centre, Edinburgh Art Festival (2014); Armory Film, New York (2012); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2011); Austrian Museum of Applied Art and Contemporary Art (MAK), Vienna, (2011).

The Soft Epic, or: Savages of the Pacific West
Art vidéo | dv | couleur | 3:6 | USA | 2008

« The Soft Epic, or: Savages of the Pacific West » est une vidéo monumentale et une installation audio qui examine les représentations historiques et contemporaines de l'anxiété culturelle, et la relation fluide entre l'Histoire et le Cinéma, où réalité et fiction s?écroule l?une sur l'autre comme les plis d'un rideau de théâtre tiré. Composée de multiples projections et d?une bande son en surround ? nouvellement commandée à Bird Show (Ben Vida) ? l??uvre synthétise des images et des effets à partir de fresques historiques, d?épopées de science-fiction, de films de catastrophe et de peintures de Jérôme Bosch, en un paysage urbain fracturé et dystrophique, parsemé de flammes éternelles et de chimères. À travers la projection vidéo longue de cent pieds, la splendeur d?Hollywood usurpe le récit mythologique et historique au service de l'autorité politique et l'ordre social.

Over my dead country
Vidéo | hdv | couleur et n&b | 11:11 | Taiwan | 2013

Is this the 100th anniversary celebration of a country or a prediction of doom, the last rays of a sun that is setting beneath the shadow of threats? Mixing the firework display and the self-immolation of freedom fighters, this work not only presents visual paradoxes but also re-visits the ghosts of history. Fusing tragedy and celebration, it reflects concerns about media monopolies and the current situation of the country. A historical process, repetition or an ending – what will be revealed through the flames?

Wei-Ming Ho was born in Taipei, Taiwan as a visual artist and filmmaker. He works across the fields of experimental film, video installation and media art. His works have been presented in cinemas and also in artistic contexts such as Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts and numerous art & film festivals in 40 countries.

The Bohemian Rhapsody Project
Film expérimental | dv | couleur | 6:52 | Singapour | 2006

Le "Bohemian Rhapsody Project" est entièrement basé sur les paroles de la chanson de Queen, "Bohemian Rhapsody", et tourné à la cour suprême de Singapour. Un garçon est accusé, et son coeur est brisé à la vue de sa "mama" en larmes. Au cours des mois de juin et juillet 2006, il a fallu quatre tours d'auditions pour le rôle du personnage principal. La chanson de Queen, écrite en 1975, remplace la structure de la chanson pop de base (couplet-refrain-couplet), par un jeu de rôle multiple et un mélange quasi schizophrénique de styles musicaux différents. Sur les nombreux professionnels et non professionnels auditionnés, 22 ont été invités à un dernier tour d'audition qui s'est tenu dans une ancienne salle d'audience de l'hôtel de ville. Etaient présents des spectateurs spécialement invités, 18 autres membres du casting, ainsi qu'une équipe de film. Sur ces 22 auditionnés, 21 ont été sélectionnés pour le film final, composé uniquement de ces images d'audition. Le film qui en résulte, découpé sur la durée exacte de la chanson (5mn 52), fonctionne en même temps comme enregistrement de cette audition. De plus, le film, qui oscille entre texte parlé et texte chanté, est un moyen de solliciter la mémoire musicale des spectateurs et d'encourager leur participation à un exercice de karaoké mental.

Sin Tung ho
Folie à deux
Doc. expérimental | dv | couleur | 73:0 | Hong Kong | 2011

Ho Sin Tung?s Folie à deux, shows a sequence of 17 people reading a passage with their back to the camera - from a book they have chosen themselves, at different indoor and outdoor locations in Hong Kong, the mainland China and Macau. This deceptively simple video, however, has a psychological tension reflected in its title, folie à deux, a term describing ?a condition in which symptoms of a mental disorder, such as the same delusional beliefs or ideas, occur simultaneously in two individuals who share a close relationship or association.? In the video, the intimate relationship is between the reader and the on-looking viewer of her video, the audience. Each reading situation becomes an almost confessional as the read passage reflects an intimate and potentially embarrassing part of the personality or ?soul? of the reader. The viewer is drawn into the readers? spoken passage, its significance, its meanings, and each reader?s viewpoint appreciated, possibly even absorbed by the viewer.

Ho Sin Tung was born in Hong Kong in 1986, and graduated from the Fine Arts Department of Chinese University in Hong Kong in 2008.  Ho`s recent work predominantly uses pencil, graphite and watercolour in combination with found and ready-made images - such as stickers, maps, charts, rubber-stamps and timelines. These are reinterpreted to narrate stories of places, relationships and periods of time often within a considered, objective historical setting.

 Apart from painting, ho also do writing, installation and video work. Her work uses a lot of literature and cinema references. "Folie à deux" is an obvious combination of both themes.

Fiction expérimentale | hdv | noir et blanc | 20:0 | Viet nam | 2014

The movie is about traces, disintegration, and the feeling of being adrift. Two people are in love with each other through the tangible objects. The film opens with a break-in and several stolen objects. A sense of losing traces, filled with shadows of violence and unexpectedness is provoked, foreseeing a disintegrated future. In theanxious space remained an old cloth - a hidden, humble and sensitive trace. The story tells the journey of the old cloth with the Man – the Woman and the Anonym, challenging their sensitive and hard-to-identify existences.

Arena
Vidéo | dv | couleur | 65:0 | Pays-Bas | 2014

Arena is part of an on-going examination into the nature of display, and the ways in which objects and bodies are made to perform, through their display. The material for this work was shot at the Mission Museum of Steyl near Venlo in The Netherlands. The museum holds a collection of animals and artifacts that were collected by missionaries from the Steyl Monastery during their travels all over the world in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The museum was built specially to house the collection and its display has never been changed since it was first installed in the 1930’s and it uniquely reveals and exemplifies the perceptions and views of its time, many of which persist in the present. The animals’ bodies, stuffed and stiffly set in eternal grimaces, growls and howls, are made to perform these perceptions, ideas and ideologies that are projected upon them. The film is made of slow vertical pans that map the entire collection. The camera’s position is close up; skin fur and feathers take equal attention, as do painted backdrops, stones and attributes. As we stand before the projection, larger than life, of these animals, what becomes unclear and what is questioned is: Who is displaying what and for whom? Who is looking at whom?

Philippine Hoegen lives and works in Brussels and Amsterdam. Her work consists of installations and performance. She is currently a participant of apass artistic research program in Brussels and tutor of visual art at AKV St Joost Academy for Visual Art, Breda/Den Bosch, NL. With Carolien Stikker she runs BREW, a space in Brussels, which organises and hosts events in the field of contemporary art.

Crossed Wires
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 23:44 | Pays-Bas | Belgique | 2018

This document is an exploration of the Belgian art scene. It shows a series of conversations, with an informal, subjective mapping of the scene as a backdrop. In the conversations, questions are approached through the specificity of peoples' own trajectories: their practical, artistic or social paths, how such trajectories shaped certain practices and how these practices connect to the biotope of the art scene within its contemporary societal and political context. In preparation of the film numerous people were asked the question which persons, places or practices are important for them. We asked every interlocutor to suggest new interlocutors, so that every conversation generated new conversations. We let ourselves be guided by the suggestions we received, resulting finally in a varied assortment of interviewees. The notes for the informal preparatory conversations became the set for the film: they were drawn up on the walls, creating a haphazard, subjective mapping. The set functions as a performative space, as the interviewees are immersed in this unruly apparatus which they begin to correct, add on to, disagree with and debate

Philippine Hoegen is an artist living in Brussels. Her multi-stranded practice engages with issues of objectness and personhood, through the notion of versioning: How we create different versions of ourselves, the processes and technologies we use for that and what the existence of those multiple versions means for our understanding of self. Her work consists primarily of performance and performative interventions or events. She is researcher at CARADT, Avans University, NL; teacher at AKV St Joost, Breda and on an irregular basis mentor at apass, Brussels. Recent activities include: "Being as Becoming", a residency / exhibition and collaborative research project at Onomatopee, Eindhoven (2018); "Ventriloquists III", solo performance, at Plymouth University in the SAR conference Artistic Research Will Eat Itself and at the University of Twente in the conference Narrative Matters (2018); "Crossed Wires", a film commissioned by and launched at Art Brussels (2018); "The Many Machine", a performative collaborative event at AKV St Joost, Breda (2018). Recent publications include: "Ventriloquists III", a contribution to Proceedings 9th SAR Conference: Artistic Research Will Eat Itself (2018); "Body of Books: The BAS Collection", essay on the artists' run space BAS in Istanbul, published by Collectorspace, Inc, New York/Istanbul (2017).

Make News Instead of
0 | dv | couleur | 22:0 | Allemagne | Autriche | 2008

La double projection vidéo « Make news instead of » est basée sur la double projection diapositive d?une exposition de l?artiste, « More Opportunities », à l?Arts Center de Plymouth (Royaume-Uni) en 2007- 2008. Cette ?uvre traite de la question de la transformation de la ville de Plymouth, comme un exemple de changement d?une ville industrielle mise au service de l'économie, dans le contexte de la mondialisation. Il traite du changement d?identité rapide et radical d'une ville et ses habitants, dans un docu-fiction réalisé à partir du collage de matériaux divers, notamment « A Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea », film de Science-fiction de Irwin Allend (1961), un film-documentaire en 16 millimètres sur la grève du chantier naval de Plymouth du Southwest Filmarchive Plymouth (1969), « The Way We Live », documentaire de Jill Craigie sur l?architecte Abercrombie (1946), ou « More Opportunities », une manifestation mise en scène de Barbara Holub (2007).


Parallèlement à son travail d'artiste, la carrière de Barbara Holub comprend notamment la Présidence de la Sécession de Vienne depuis 2006-2007. De 2004-2007, elle a été membre du Comité d'Art Public de Basse-Autriche. En 1999, elle a créé la compagnie d'architecture et d'urbanisme Transparadiso, avec son associé Paul Rajakovics. Leur travail expérimental reflète l'architecture et le développement urbain dans le contexte des questions posées par la mondialisation, en même temps qu?il développe de nouveaux outils pour ce que Transparadiso appelle l?« urbanisme direct ». Parmi les récentes expositions de Barbara Holub, signalons notamment « This is a Gallery and a Gallery is Many Things » à l?Eastside Projects de Birmingham (Royaume-Uni), « Orientierungen » au Regionale 08 de Styria, « Periscope Elevator » à Amsterdam/Ijburg (Pays-Bas), « Ganz nah so fern » à Vienne (en collaboration avec Grita Insam Gallery), ou « More Opportunities » à l?Austrian Cultural Forum du London Festival of Architecture.

Friday Market
Installation vidéo | betaSP | couleur | 8:0 | Autriche | Egypte | 2008

LONG SHOT: In one long shot the camera travels along the section of Cairo?s Friday market that is set up on railroad tracks. Here, framed by the highway and the Al-Imam As Safi?i cemetery, every Friday locals and vendors from all over the city offer their products for sale, set up on tables or spread on the ground. The camera moves at a steady, slow paste along the tracks, like a train passing a closed down station. The people inhabiting the market ? the sellers and buyers, and the people living at its edge become the protagonist of the film, collapsing the borders between performance, documentary and fiction film. The slow paste of the shot allows the viewer?s attention to oscillate between the market in the foreground ? the goods for sale, the dynamics between sellers and buyers, and the many (informal) architectural layers of the housing area and cemetery directly behind. I am equally interested in the complex and multilayered architectural constructions as in the informal economy of the market. The range of products for sale questions our western concepts of what holds value, and the very notion and definition of a ?product? in itself: What we easily label as trash - useless or broken parts - are being recycled and offered for sale, a sign not only of desperation and economic need, but also of faith in the creativity of the buyer to find a possible new use for these items. MAKING-OF: The making-of documents the film shoot during the course of the day (from 6 am to the early afternoon when rain and a sandstorm hit the market) and offers glimpses into the socioeconomic context of the market, the location and its inhabitants through close ups of sellers, buyers and products, and short interviews with locals.

My Castle Your Castle
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 14:47 | Allemagne | 2017

my castle your castle Set up as a somewhat retro TV talk show my castle your castle operates from within the skeleton of the Prussian castle that is currently being re-built in the center of Berlin. Erected on the foundations of the dismantled GDR parliament building called Palace of the Republic, the castle is not only an imperialist architectural remake, in its future function as exhibition space for the “ Ethnographic Collections ” of Berlins National Museums it literally embodies Germany’s legacies of colonial violence. The video engages with the building site as a stage for the material and social construction “ as well as the queer contestation ” of “ nation ” and (white) “ masculinity”: Interviewed by a talk show host over a piece of cake from porcelain dishes with reproductions of the castle and its disappeared counterpart, two construction workers evoke an opaque third in a language of structural matter. Peter Friedrich had supervised the construction (1973-76) of the Palast der Republik, and Gunter Teichert worked as the head of its deconstruction (2006-08). In the matter of fact conversation between the “ makers of the palace ”, their body of work “ in other words architecture, political representation, memory ” disintegrates in the builder’s jargon. However, the material and machinic vocabulary of construction site itself resonates the massive urban reconstructions, redistributions of properties and redefinitions of political meaning through architecture that have followed the disappearance of state socialisms in Europe. This vocabulary is emphasized and queered in short interludes to the talk show in which the talk show host, who is performed by the artist Kerstin Honeit herself incorporating elements of drag, appears sitting on a huge excavating machine or between metal poles that stabilize casts for concrete. (Text by Suza Husse)

Kerstin Honeit was born in Berlin, where she still lives and works. She studied Fine Art and Theatre Design at the Kunsthochschule Weissensee in Berlin.

PANDA MOONWALK or WHY MENG MENG WALKS BACKWARDS
Doc. expérimental | 4k | | 8:0 | Allemagne | 2018

Since 2017 the Giant Panda Bears Meng Meng and Jiao Qing have been hired out to the Berlin Zoo from China to attract more visitors and to therefore increase profit. Unfortunately for the Berlin Zoo this advertising campaign did not work out as planned - in fact it worked backwards. Meng Meng, the female Panda will only walk backwards - probably protesting the fact that she is kept in captivity and in a totally different continent from her origins. But instead of rethinking the problematic concepts of zoos in general, international media is taking on a different debate: blaming Meng Meng’s behavior on the fact that she has not bred yet and is just looking for attention. Kerstin Honeit’s video aligns Meng Meng’s protest with other performances of protesting bodies using movement in public space to address grievances.

The film consists of the photographic narratives of individuals’ polaroid pictures taken at the time of their birth, which is used as the intertwining signifiers. A few of the selected actors came from broken families and had similar life experiences as the concept expressed in this work. In other words, the subjects in the images are not only a semiotic interpretation of role-playing? but also a reiteration of life experiences that overlap with these actors. That is, the creative approach adopted constantly seeks subjects close to its own life trajectory as a way to realize internal, psychological imageries and spiritual restoration.

Jun-Yuan Hong was born in 1981 in Taiwan and is currently a candidate in the Doctoral Program in Art Creation and Theory of Tainan University of the Arts. Video has strong inner emotional problems. The main reason comes from his incomplete original family. Therefore, in the video, he likes to construct these tangled feelings through close-up, and look for people with similar family situations, let them be his elements of the image that respond to and express their emotional state of facing family problems through the encounters of these different living individuals.

« Public Lighting est une méditation sur la photographie et la création d'images, qui peuvent capturer, remplacer nos expériences, et leur survivre. Le film est divisé en 7 parties. Chaque chapitre est une étude de cas, de différents types de personnalités identifiés par le jeune auteur, qui nous guide dans le prologue. Le premier, homme gay, nous emmène faire la tournée des bars et des restaurants, où il a vécu des ruptures amoureuses. Il nous raconte sur le mode ironique ses histoires avec ses ex amants. Un hommage à Philipp Glass est suivi, de manière plutôt incongrue, par Hey Madonna, lettre de confession adressée à la chanteuse par l'un de ses fans, séropositif. Amy célèbre un autre anniversaire, mais avoue qu?elle n?a aucun souvenir de ce qu?elle voit à la télévision. Ceci dit, au moins elle a une caméra : "Je prends des images non pour m?aider à me souvenir, mais pour enregistrer mes oublis" . Hiro vit sa vie à distance, et s'aventure rarement au-delà de l'objectif. Un jeune mannequin anxieux raconte des événements poignants de son passé. Peu de réalisateurs se réapproprient le footage de manière aussi forte : à la fois drôles et incisives, ces images nous ramènent à des parties de nous-mêmes. Le travail récent de Mike Hoolboom a une telle empathie avec la condition humaine qu'il nous parle directement au c?ur. » Mark Webber, London film festival

Eva Marie Rodbro’s embedded ethnographic maestro short, originally made in Brownsville, Texas in 2010, is given a fan remake. Night vision animal life and teen hangouts conjure a temporary and fragile collective, while conversation fragments, alternately performed and raw, shouted and whispered, collide.

Mike Hoolboom began making movies in 1980. Making as practice, a daily application. Ongoing remixology. Since 2000 there has been a steady drip of found footage bio docs. The animating question of community: how can I help you? Interviews with media artists for 3 decades. Monographs and books, written, edited, co-edited. Local ecologies. Volunteerism. Opening the door.

BOUNDARY
Doc. expérimental | dv | couleur | 16:46 | USA | Lettonie | 2009

Set among an isolated community in a remote landscape near the Russian border, BOUNDARY evokes a space of ambiguity, a psychogeography, an absence of personal histories. It is the first installment in a tetralogy of films based on a statement by Sadeq Hedayat: ?In life it is possible to become angelic, human, or animal. I have become none of these things.?

Born 1982 in the United States. Graduated in Art History from Columbia University in New York City. Worked for Lithuanian film-maker Sharunas Bartas on the film Eastern Drift (Indigene d`Eurasie) as a camera assistant. BOUNDARY is his first film.

Cultes
Vidéo | 4k | couleur | 15:0 | France | 2019

Puissants terrains d’expérimentation, les corps se trouvent au cœur du nouveau film de (LA)HORDE, Cultes, imaginé comme une réflexion autour du phénoméne des festivals. "Peut-on encore vivre une expérience spirituelle dans ces nouveaux sanctuaires consuméristes ? Les spectateurs réussissent-ils à créer leur propre expérience subversive comme autant d'individus constituant une masse ?". Le film est un trip hallucine? au cœur d’une foule, d’une communaute? de corps soudés par leur amour de la musique, des corps qui dansent mais qui n’oublient jamais de ressentir.

Uutisten aika
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur et n&b | 39:11 | Finlande | 2019

“Uutisten aika (Newstime)” is a found footage film, which discusses cultural differences, being an outsider, the Namibian independence struggle, and Finland’s long-term ties with the southern African country. The work consists entirely of archival material from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. TV-programs showing everyday life are set against a voice-over by Ellen Ndeshi Namhila reading from her autobiography “The Price of Freedom”. Namhila spent seven years in Tampere as a refugee on a scholarship, studying library science. She recounts her experiences, ranging from single parenthood to observations on missionaries in Namibia and the church in Finland. Everyday scenes manifest how Namhila possibly saw the fairly homogeneous Finnish society she lived in. News clips on the Namibian independence struggle frame the narrative. They feature SWAPO (The South West Africa People’s Organization) students, visiting politicians, and representatives of the United Nations and NGOs. Since Namibia was under the apartheid regime until 1990, archival material about the history of SWAPO can be found in countries where members of the liberation movement were in exile.
