Selected Artist's Moving Image
Eye on Art: Selected Artist's Moving Image
New work by Dutch artists and experimental filmmakers that was recently added to Eye’s collection. The program includes short films by filmmakers and artist’s like Karel Doing, Bernardo Zanotta and Lichun Tseng. Most of the filmmakers featured in the program will be present for a Q&A.
Insieme Insieme (Bernardo Zanotta, FR/NL 2022, 37’)
An unusual trio of bandits spends autumn in a village by Lake Maggiore. They create a parallel world in their rented apartment, which little reflects their surroundings. As the pressures of the outside world begin to weigh on them, they kidnap a tourist in order to give purpose to their lives.
A Perfect Storm (Karel Doing, NL/GB 2022, 3’)
A Perfect Storm is a landscape film or, more precisely, a landscape imprinted on the film's emulsion. The artist used seeds, tiny composite flowers and tiny parts of cultivated plants from his garden as well as wild plant species gathered from a nearby nature reserve. The film consists of sequences that are intricately composed and elements that are completely 'self-organised'. As such plants appear not merely as inanimate objects but rather as characters who are expressive in their own right. With an improvised guitar solo by the inimitable Florian Magnus Maier.
Our Ark (Deniz Tortum, Kathryn Hamilton, NL/US 2021, 12’)
We are backing up the planet, creating 3D models of animals, rainforests, cities and people. We are archiving as if ecological collapse could be staved off using some digital Noah’s Ark of beasts and objects. Our Ark is an essay on our efforts to create a virtual replica of the real world.
Shunyata (Lichun Tseng, Robert Kroos, NL 2021, 13’)
Shunyata was created by layering, constructing and deconstructing film footage and analogue waveforms into an immersive, sense transcendent experience. Evoking a sense of deep meditation and timelessness using constant change and chaos.
Eye on Art
Eye on Art is a programme on the intersection between film and other arts. Eye on Art keeps up with current events, with presentations on contemporary artists and programmes that coincide with important exhibitions, manifestations and Eye activities.
Why in Eye
From the print of a plant on film to a look ahead at a virtual replica of the world we live in. About objects, depictions and the substitution of the object by the depiction.
