N. I. C. E. Videoart from Italy
New Ideas about Contemporary and Experimental Videoart
Videoart Selection curated by Visualcontainer
from 1 December – to 31 January 2013

Curatorial Statement
It’s a renowned fact that videoart language and visual experimentation has fallen out of technology‘s spell.
New surveys and researches have outlined a new way of visual experimentation and a new vision of reality and subconscious. Now, the many-sided investigation fields are assimilated, re-thought and “augmented”.
The video art language is evolving, diversifying and getting contaminated in the same way. The narrative style – usually absent – is returned as a stroboscopic light – where fragments of freeze frames are sketching a new way. The performance have a new communicative potential. New ethics/aesthetics is growing while the reality is inter-sounded, dissected, gathered and mixed with contemporary new media. In the same way, the dreamlike range of videoart creativity has no limits either.
The different audience have a confident approach with screens and megascreens, so it’s easy to be involved within visual suggestions into a sort of a looping “reflection” on images and on this medium.

Invited artists are chosen as a representative group of emerging young operators already known and well-established in the Italian and international contemporary art scene. The videos belong to different categories, ranging from animation to performance, in order to give as a complete view as possible of today’s videoart.
