FOCUS ON PERFORMANCE ART FILM: SYLVIA TOY ST. LOUIS (USA)

Sylvia Toy St. Louis – Creation, 54 min, 2018

Watch in PPV

An experimental, greenscreen art film inspired by the Central African creator god, Mbombo, who created the world by vomiting it. The two main characters in CREATION are The First One (Night), who suddenly appears out of a void of light – i.e., a Big Bang event – and immediately vomits The Second One (God). The First One hates existence. The Second One loves existence so much that he/she begins vomiting all the parts of the Universe. 

Sylvia Toy St. Louis – Sequence 32, 75min, 2018

Watch in PPV

SEQUENCE  32 (2017). A feature-length, nonlinear mashup of my research for CREATION, an experimental, greenscreen art film inspired by the Central African creator god, Mbombo, who created the world by vomiting it. There is no dialogue.

THE SELECTION FROM SPACES:
CAPPA’S CURATORIAL PROJECT

Center for Archiving and Promotion of Performing Art – CAPPA (Italy)
THE CURATORIAL PROJECT

The BODY is atonement.

Nicola Fornoni – Liquid Coral, 3:56, 2015

Watch in PPV

In this action, the artist repeats like a ritual gesture he performs three times every day to measure the glycemic value, exhibiting the most precious organic liquid, blood. He thus reflects on the social taboos of illness and the transience of life, overcoming the membrane of his body and rediscovering his own identity beyond suffering.

Mandra Cerrone – Sine Nonime, 19:24, 2017

Watch in PPV

A poetic gesture with a psycho magic significance to free oneself from transgenerational ties; by removing the invisible loyalty that binds us inextricably to our ancestors, we are freed from their judgment and from a psycho-emotional heritage that does not really belong to us.

Marco Casolino – Action Albatro (wings and faith), 5:12, 2012

Watch in PPV


Inspired by the famous poetry of Baudelaire, the performance materializes the condition of the poet in a journey that wants to demonstrate how the memory of the experience can become cumbersome.

PREMIERE:
what’s new in the videoart world

PREMIERE:
Daniela Di Maro – Raphanus Sativus, 7 min. 2020

Watch here in PPV

A long process of manual release of seeds, from the thorny siliques of the Raphanus sativus (radish) plant, is synthesized, step by step, up to
to the revelation of a message, made of the same substance as vegetable granules.

PREMIERE:
Katharina Gruzei – YAW, 14 min. 2020

watch here in PPV

The artist takes up this aspect and devotes herself to homeland security in a double sense; rites and the military. While the Austria-wide network of radar systems watches over the borders of Austria, the rites and customs preserve traditions and maintain them through constant re-performance. 

PREMIERE:
Maria Korporal – ZoOm into my Room, 4:57, 2020

Watch here in PPV

Our social and private life has undergone a drastic turn towards digitalisation as a consequence of the pandemic that originated at the beginning of 2020. Human contacts now often are replaced by video-chat Zoom or Jitsy.
In this video, I try to show the human experience of loneliness and impotence during their „meetings“ in cyberspace. Even if the light image accurately depicts the person, eye contact is impossible. We look at a screen that shows a simulacrum of some other human being and of ourselves.

PREMIERE:
LIUBA – UNTITLED 6’51”, 2010 – 2020

Watch in PPV

In 2020, during the COVID-19 emergency which forced people in isolation into their own home and into social distancing, with no other contacts than the ones mediated by technology, LIUBA decided to devote herself to editing the footage and photos of this performance, aware that in the era of global pandemic these images take on further meaning. The action of embracing a stranger looks like a remote reality, almost impossible to start it again as a social practice, but at the same time there is a strong need to resume this practice as soon as possible, and stronger than ever.”It is incredible to see how much hunger for affection I saw and experienced on my skin during the performance piece.

EXPERIMENTAL VIDEO

HESAM RAHMANI – Faces without Visages, 8:00, 2019

Watch here in PPV

How come a sombre silence drowns me and my memory?
How come the faces lose visage in this dark dungeon of memory?

Cristina Ohlmer – SHANGHAI DREAM, 10.40, 2014

watch here in PPV

In old times it was possible to escape the fate that brings bad dreams into your life when you draw the fabulous animal BAKU on your pillow or the wall, or you must shout: BAKU CHI, eat the dream up. This is the Shanghai dream. The dream is of Shanghai changing May into June, July into August and heat into rain until autumn comes in September. 

Eginhartz Kanter – take away, 6:42, 2018

Watch here in PPV

The gloomy aura of the abandoned, nightly streets is underlined in the work. At the same time, taking-away takes a closer look at people’s primordial fear of the darkness – the Achluophobia – which is especially pronounced in childhood. Furthermore, the black wall arouses associations with stage elements and thus increases the stage-atmosphere the places somehow posses.

Alessandra Arnò – 2050, 4:11, 2019

Watch in PPV

Footage from the photographic series of Luca Locatelli “Hunger Solutions” – winner of the 2018 edition of The World Press Photo Contest /// Environment /// Stories.

A journey took on for the first time by the human eye through the robotic gaze. Technological evolution as seen by the machine arises as to the only solution for survival in the near future. 

David Anthony Sant – EXPANSE – 04:07, 2019

Watch in PPV

Notably disparate Sydney localities. A threaded expanse of colour expands and/or contracts within each portion of the footage. The displaced perimeters of the images redefine their discernment whilst whimsically disclosing their underlying digital fabric.

Katharina Gruzei – Dialogue I – IV, 9:45, 2008/09

Watch in PPV

Dialogue I – IV shows the communication between two people. The project focuses on creating a sketch of the intense exchange between two cultures by using the gaze as the main form of communication. Here “culture” does not mean a person’s origin but the unique cultivation that everyone experiences and makes people individuals.

ANIMATION

Rita Casdia – Stangliro, 4:09, 2013

Watch here in PPV

Stangliro comes from the observation of the film Metropolis by F. Lang. The images of Lang made ​​me reflect on the representations of the masses are characterized by an emphasis impetuous and mono-directional which is opposed to the impotence of the person who does not adhere to this force. 

Lucia Veronesi – Out there, a big night of stars – 4:00, 2016

watch here in PPV

Reassuring and comfortable home rooms witness the catastrophe that is taking place outside the window. The cosy and old-fashioned furnishing promises protection — fabrics are bright, the fireplace is lit, but outside the world is crumbling: in vast and deserted lunar atmospheres the planets collide, the Earth collapses and reverses its rules. 

Lucia Veronesi – By sitting in the dark, all is clearer, 4:00, 2017

Watch here in PPV

A trip into the imagination of the visual research of Lucia Veronesi and her video collages.
