Electronic and Sensitive
Special selection from Play Festival Buenos Aires Argentina
18 – 31 March 2009 on VisualContainerTV

VIDEOPLAY 09 “Electronic and Sensitive” includes records, video performances and other works which, though not clearly framed within the category of art-action, reflect a deep anchorage in the performatic sphere. It is an attempt to reveal the presence of the body that is trapped and mediatized by video technology or else, to highlight the no-presence of a body that has become virtual and electronic.
The selection “Electronic and Sensitive” constitutes an opportunity of access to the best possibilities resulting from the interaction of art and technology. The vitality of the creation in video art appears and shows in works that leave aside the mere experimentation to look for the depth of meanings. All the artists include in the selection show a maturity in the field that makes them get a greater richness in their speech. Almost all the works denote a semantic quality that lets them move through the most subtle aspects of reality. In the genesis of most of them, we can see a conception of the video production where technology gets to a new sensitivity.
