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.

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:
Marcia Beatriz Granero –PAPARAZZI, 5:49min, 2019

Watch in PPV

Jaque Jolene, a fictional autobiographical entity who sometimes inhabits the body of the Brazilian videoartist.
In Paparazzi, she is invited for the first time to travel to the United Kingdom and inspired by Lady Diana, she performs a ritual when she arrives to connect herself with the new culture.

Katharina Gruzei – URBAN REFLECTORS, 8 min. 2019

watch in PPV

The establishing shot of the video shows a densely built urban landscape, which is contrasted by a concrete and fenced open space in the foreground. The area around a river in Tokyo is the scene of a strange phenomenon. An indefinable silver mass begins to move and seems to inflate from within.

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.

Eginhartz Kanter – take away, 6:42, 2018

Watch in PPV

taking away shows surprisingly quiet streets in Tokyo at night. The empty streets reminiscent of apocalyptic scenarios – only here and their lights are blinking in the distance. The nocturnal peace is interrupted by an unexpected intervention. The unauthorized manifestation of a strange object shifts the appearance of the uncanny nightly streets.

PREMIERE:

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. The deranging landscape of agro production is already in reality. Planet Earth, the year 2050.

Alessandra Arnò – TEST PATTERN: BLACK FOREST – Ai Generative video – 1:00, 2020

Watch in PPV

TEST PATTERN: BLACK FOREST is an auto generative video based on ML training on 2 datasets: Forest and Faces.
The idea was born during the recent lockdown in Italy thanks to a friend who sent me an audio file containing environmental sounds from the Black Forest to alleviate the stress caused by containment.

Using the media as an auto representative fact, I tried to develop a sort of recollection of the machine with regard to the external world – in particular about the Black Forest set

PREMIERE:
art vs film // Cristina Ohlmer + Stefan Reisinger
ASTROBLACK, 17.48 2009

watch here in PPV

ASTROBLACK is an experimental sci-fi film based on a formal production technique to explore how the film industry deals with patterns of perception to get involved in a movie. ASTROBLACK escapes from her galaxy in an interstellar capsule. PLATINO is on her pursuit. ASTROBLACK shifts to a megacity by the imagination of a gigantic glass egg. When they meet there the action freezes in the suspense of their face to face for the next…
