CONFETTIS FOETUS MAN

Messieurs Delmotte
A short video performance in which Monsieur Delmotte is packed in a plastic bag, like a foetus in the womb, filled with confetti. Starting with his left arm, he frees himself from the bag and the confetti. This work is part of the series Unidentified Emoticon...

APPLE

Shelly Silver
APPLE is an fast-edited assemblage of views and details of a big sculpture in the public space shaped as a green apple alternated to a postcard of Paris' Eiffel Tower....

PROGRAM FOR A COLD PLACE

Edith Dekyndt
'Program for a cold place' took place in February 2000. People who never met participated in this temporary experience. The purpose was to film in the open air a domestic phenomenon: the explosion in low temperature conditions of containers filled with a liquid. The team went out from Winnipeg to install a laboratory up in the Canadian North, in minus 30°C weather...

BEAUTY PLUS PITY

Cooper Battersby - Emily Vey Duke
The contemporary fables of Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby propose that existence is abject, farcical, and messy. In their richly textured videos, Duke and Battersby employ live action footage, scavenged images, and simple animations to create episodic structures that evince a simultaneously utopian and dystopian world view...

EPIC (MALHAME)

Julia Meltzer - David Thorne
“2 years ago when I was a donkey they used to hit me so I didn’t fall into the hole that is at the edge of the valley. I used to always walk along the edge of the valley, reach the hole, move around it, and then continue walking. Of course, that is after I fell into it the first time...

BETWEEN TWO WALLS

Ria Pacquée
The work of Ria Pacquée contains narrative aspects, firmly rooted in a social awareness, which do not seem to take shape until the final stage of the editing. ’Between Two Walls’ is a montage of clips showing the worship of people of different faiths in Jerusalem – in the streets, in the temples, at shrines...

CLEAN AIR

Grace Schwindt
Clean Air investigates how meaning is projected onto landscapes. For instance, the Alps are linked with power, purity and cleanness, terms that were also used to describe the German identity from the 1920s onwards. Two female performers of different generations react to this mental construction with a choreography of dance, music, costumes, milk and knitting....

1937

Nora Martirosyan
"Two chapters, two time periods, one story. On the one hand, 1937, at the height of the Stalinist purges in Erevan, in the soviet Armenia, the year of the arrest of Nora Dabagian’s father who was a political dissident. On the other hand, 2006, the circumstantial story of this arrest related by the old woman, affectionally known as Baboulia, who was a very young girl in the 1930ies...

SLOW OBJECT 04

Edith Dekyndt
'Slow Object 04' is close-up video and it shows a delicate manipulation of an ordinary round rubber band bobbing up and down in slow motion. As if the movement of the disc and the hand takes place in an aquarium, the object appears to be suspended as escaping Earth’s gravity: it slightly deforms and it rarely returns to the initial point...

NA ALLE VLEES: PORTRET VAN EEN WERKWIJZE (JACQ VOGELAAR)

Jef Cornelis
A portrait of the Dutch author and essay writer Jacq Firmin Vogelaar (1944), on the occasion of his ’All Meat’ (1980), a book aiming at nothing less than a thorough deconstruction of recognizable reality in order to set up a new construction with the debris. Vogelaar discusses the philosophy of the fragment, utopia, meat, (linguistic) machines, Francis Bacon...
