SILVERLEAF

Adam Leech
Adam Leech produces videos with a narrative touch. The protagonists of these stories are usually archetypical inhabitants of ‘the American suburbia’ we are familiar with from countless television series. Their preferred pastimes are shopping, parties and interior design - in short, everything that has to do with the aestheticization of the everyday...

DISSONANT

Manon de Boer
In Dissonant, Manon de Boer films dancer Cynthia Loemij while the latter dances for about 10 minutes to Eugène Ysaÿe’s 3 sonates for violin solo – a piece that holds vivid memories for her. The camera follows her every movement. A physical time limit, namely the 3-minute duration of one 16-mm film roll, interrupts the camera’s continued movement...

UN JOUR, L'AVENIR NOUS DONNERA RAISON

4. DOWN / 6. ACROSS

Ken Kobland
Blocks and squares, a fragmented view from the side into cosy lit up apartments in the big city. Sofas, staircases, lampposts, tables with flowers. Dreamy piano music underlines this literally puzzled view on contemporary living. Suddenly the music and mood switches: we are in a jazzy and dynamic dreamscape somewhat reminiscent of Mondriaan’s masterful ‘Victory Boogie-Woogie...

SNNORRREBOT

Jan Vromman
A girl and a man are staying in the house. Another man, in some kind of hotel, looks out over the landscape with binoculars. A blind man arrives. They all play music. We visit a local wedding, and again there is music, bagpipes even. The music gives this video its structure, along with the gestures, movements, objects and many, many musical instruments...

COMMENT DIRE?

Eddy Luyckx
’Comment dire ?’ is above all a documentary about a painter, Paolo GASPAROTTO, the main character with his neo-expressionist paintings. The camera takes long sweeps of his studio. Paolo appears too, painting or suddenly laughing cynically. Other images are also introduced. The outside world, without Paolo. And here we enter fiction...
