Prince
Doc. exprimental | hdv | couleur | 18:50 | Congo (Brazzaville) | 2014

A man performs the same ritual every day: he cleans his shoes, dresses up in his shiny blue suit, wears his white gloves and grey hat, and spends his time walking around Brazzaville. His presence generates an absurd apparition in the urban chaos of the city, which reflects the imaginary produced by one of the up-most icons of pop culture.


Wojtek Doroszuk (b. 1980 in Poland) is a video artist based in Krakow, Poland and Rouen, France. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakw, Poland, Faculty of Painting, in 2006. His works have been shown in numerous solo and group shows in, among others, Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle (Warsaw), Zachęta National Gallery of Art (Warsaw), Museum of Modern Art (Warsaw), Location One (New York), Marina Abramovic Institute (San Francisco), The Stenersen Museum (Oslo), Joseph Tang Gallery (Paris) etc.

Following the feel of black and white rising and falling through caverns and across plains.


A lyrical filmmaker as well as a sound and visual artist, Robert Todd continually produces short works that resist categorization.

Sea of Ash
Fiction | hdv | couleur | 11:57 | Italie | 2015

LOGLINE
A poetic re-imagining of Death in Venice, featuring a West African immigrant to Italy who embarks on a journey from the Alpine mountains to the seaside and ultimately, on a doomed voyage home. SYNOPSIS
The form of the film is one of a fable, that grafts Thomas Manns 1925 novella, Death in Venice, to the contemporary issue of African refugees and immigrants in Italy. The film takes Manns book as a nexus point and expands upon a number of themes inherent in it. In Sea of Ash, Manns character Tadzio is an immigrant to Italy from West Africa (Senegal) who has survived the treacherous and often fatal journey by sea. While the lead character of the original von Aschenbach is embodied in the unseen filmmaker himself. The narrative of the film follows Tadzio on a short journey from the remarkable Brion Cemetery at San Vito in the mountains of Northern Italy to the coastal area of the Venetian lagoon. On Lido Island he visits the famous Hotel ds Bains as featured in Luchino Viscontis 1971 film version of Death in Venice. The film concludes on the ds Baines beach, with Tadzio embarking on a doomed attempt to return home.

Lampedusa
Fiction exprimentale | hdv | couleur et n&b | 13:44 | USA | 2015

Combining high definition and Super 8 footage, Lampedusa is composed of interwoven narratives based on a series of real events. In late 1831, a volcanic island suddenly erupted from the sea a few kilometers off the southern coast of Sicily. An international dispute ensued, during which a number of European powers laid claim to this newfound land. The island receded below sea level six months later, leaving only a rocky ledge under the sea...

Dead Slow Ahead
Documentaire | 4k | couleur | 74:0 | France | 2015

A freighter crosses the ocean. The hypnotic rhythm of its pace reveals the continuous movement of the machinery devouring its workers: the old sailors gestures disappearing under the mechanical and impersonal pulse of the 21st century. Perhaps it is a boat adrift, or maybe just the last example of an endangered species with engines still running, unstoppable.

He started his career as a director of photography and screenwriter on such films as Ocaso (2010), Arraianos (2012), A puerta fria (2012), El quinto evangelio de Gaspar Hauser (2013) and Slimane (2013). Dead Slow Ahead (2015) is his first feature film as a director.

Mariangela Ciccarello et Philip Cartelli évoquent l’île volcanique apparue en 1831 à quelques kilomètres de l’île de Lampedusa, provoquant un conflit international, avant de disparaître six mois plus tard. Avec Mauro Herce, nous traversons l’océan sur un cargo, dont la machinerie semble dévorer les marins. Il s’agit peut-être d’un bateau à la dérive, ou simplement du dernier spécimen d’une espèce en voie de disparition, avec ses moteurs qui fonctionnent sans pouvoir être arrêtés.

The Colonies at Dusk
Vido | hdv | couleur | 12:49 | Australie | 2014

To make the moving-image work for Means the recently returned Australian-Bangladeshi artist Omar Chowdhury headed out into the Australian bush seeking a form of simple and focused sensing. Carrying stills and cinematic cameras, he ventured into the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, crossed the Great Dividing Range, and wandered out to the remnant Victorian gold towns, searching. Haunted by the weirdness of the trees, the totemic termite mounds, the warbling creeks and dirt packed roads, he felt himself and his thinking seep into the darkening landscape. The traces of this spiritual ethereality inhere in his strange and occult video footage of animals, rocks, branches, burnings, machines and the silence of the isolate people. In it, somewhere, lie the means of his being.


Bangladeshi-Australian artist Omar Chowdhury makes moving-image, photographic, conceptual and textual installations based on immersions into contested spaces and their histories. Often mixing notions of ontology, political economy, and the spirit, they hold in uneasy tension various polarities: facts and the surreal, humour and melancholia, rhythm with chaos, weakness and power, and memory with forgetting. Out of these cohesions and frictions he produces densely woven languages and environments of moral and psychic inquiry. In 2016 he has an upcoming solo presentations at Bengal Gallery (Dhaka) and Dhaka Art Summit 2016 and screenings at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (Brisbane) for Asia Pacific Triennial 8. Recently he has had solo exhibitions at 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art (Sydney), ALASKA Projects (Sydney) and MOMENTUM (Berlin). He was a finalist in the 2015 John Fries Award (Sydney) and the 2015 and 2016 Blake Prize Award (Sydney). He is the recent recipient of a Bengal Foundation Practice Grant, Keir Foundation/4A Commission, Australia Council Skills and Development Grant, Edward M. Kennedy Grant for the Arts, and an Australian Cinematographer`s Society Gold Award. He also founded and often programs the Bengal Cinematheque in Dhaka.

Cette statue, qui fait environ trois mtres d`hauteur, reste presque invisible parmi tous les monuments touristiques de Barcelone.

Ivan Argote is Colombian artist who lives and works in Paris, Argote (31) deals with the way that man relates with the myriad changes that take place daily in the historical, economic, political and moral realms. His aim is to question the role of subjectivity in the revision of these concepts. Argote involves the body, and emotions in the construction of his thinking, and develops methods to generate reflexion about the way we construct certainty in relation with politics and history. By creating interventions and performances for the public space, which are sometimes further developed in the format of films and installations, the artist explores the city as a space of transformation. His works has been shown in several cities all around the world, including: Intersections, Cisneros Fountanals Foundation, Miami, 2015; Between the Pessimism of the Intellect and the Optimism of the Will, 5th Thessaloniki Biennale, Thessaloniki, 2015; Levitate, Museum Quartier, Vienna, 2015; Lloge de lheure, MUDAC, Lausanne, 2015; Reddish Blue (solo), DT Project, Brussels, 2014; Lets write a history of hopes (solo), Galeria Vermelho, Sao Paulo, 2014; Strengthlessness(solo), Galerie Perrotin, Paris, 2014; La Estrategia (solo), Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2013); Un millon de amigos (solo), Galeria ADN, Barcelona (2013); Tectonic, Moving Museum, Dubai (2013); Los irrespetuosos, Museo Carrilo Gil, Mxico DF (2013); 30th Sao Paulo Biennial, Sao Paulo (2012); Sin herosmos, por favor (solo), CA2M, Madrid (2012); Girarse, Joan Mir Fundation, Barcelona (2012), among others.

Omar Chowdhury s’immerge dans un paysage de plus en plus sombre, vers les anciennes mines d’or de la Province de Victoria, en Australie. Iván Argote met le feu au monument à Christophe Colomb, dans le quartier de la Rambla, à Barcelone. Au Brésil, João Vieira Torres et Tanawi Xucuru Kariri filment un rituel, et s’interrogent sur ce qui peut être vu. Lucia Prancha filme les habitants d’une île du Nordeste brésilien, dont certains pensent être les descendants directs du roi Sébastien du Portugal, disparu dans une bataille au 16ème siècle. Marco Godoy diffuse un enregistrement d’Eduardo Galeano sur le système dans la jungle bolivienne, l’une des rares régions au monde résistant au progrès. En dialogue avec l’ouvrage «L’Afrique fantôme» de Michel Leiris, Mathieu K. Abonnenc interroge la conservation d’une collection anthropologique ramenée par la Mission Dakar-Djibouti. Le film dévoile le destin et la mémoire d’archives par un récit fantasmé, qui désigne un état des relations entre les peuples.
