W O W (Kodak)

Österreich 2018, Farbe, 02:00 Min.
Regie: Viktoria Schmid

wow_kodak_press

Viktoria Schmid compiled the clips and played them backwards. In the regenerative movement, the implosion turns into an act of constituting. And thus, the reducing to rubbles of the building parts becomes a spectacular reconstruction, accompanied by the amazed shouts of the audience (WOW is the palindrome of the moment!). (Melanie Letschnig)

animistica_press

animistica opens with the viewer awakening as if inside a restless dream, transformed into a strange vermin. The camera assumes the perspective of an insect burrowing through the dark crumbling underground. Organic textures of all kinds interweave and rush by, its the interplay of growth and decay. (Andrey Arnold)

A woman wakes up on a beach wrapped in plastic, half-naked and in high heels. “Not again”, she sighs and decides to find out who is behind this. She persuades an older woman who has been pushed to the margins of society to accompany her on her revenge trip. During their journey through classical cinematic landscapes, the two women have to face their own lusts and their fragile ideologies.

Regie: Anna Vasof

muybridge_vasof_press

In Muybridge’s Disobedient Horses Anna Vasof investigates where she can find the essence of cinematic illusion when she looks into everyday life and what happens when she uses everyday objects and movements as cinematographic mechanisms. Unlike a magician, the secret behind the “magic trick” in her experiments is revealed, thereby making the cinematic illusions even more magical.

Entrop

Niederlande 2019, S/W, 06:00 Min.
Regie: Zeno van den Broek

Zeno%20van%20den%20Broek%20-%20Entrop%20-%204

Entrop draws inspiration from the pre-film animation device called the cylindrical zoetrope: a spinning cylinder containing a sequence of images or three-dimensional objects resulting in the illusion of motion. Entrop is based on a virtual threedimensional version of such a zoetrope, using digital means to go beyond the traditional physical relation of energy and
movement.

Thadeusz Tischbein

2020-10-9__land_shape_1__1557241845311

With the bird’s eye view on the landscape Thadeusz Tischbein wonders what this visual information can tell us about the relationship between landscape and its utilization. He observes farmers who create an aesthetic landscape – maybe in the tradition of Land Art. We see a machine-friendly world with precise, almost digital-like structures.

WZ734_Mont6

Vereinigtes Königreich 2019, Farbe,
03:24 Min.
Regie: Ralph Klewitz

2020-10-428__wz734_mont6__1561987134661

The static video shows a tree in Dorset county. Slung around a branch, an LED rope emits light that contrasts the blue winter dusk. Dramatising the scenery, randomly positioned emojis gradually “grow” from the tree, and then disappear again into it. The soundtrack comprises electronically distorted recordings of normal and exaggerated human breathing and gagging sounds.
