Ecrans Documentaires Farrell 2014

We are pleased to announce the selection of our documentary Malachi Farrell à l'œuvre - La Fabrication de « La Gégène » at Les Ecrans Documentaires Festival 2014. The film retraces the steps involved in the making of La Gégène, a mixed media art work by Malachi Farrell and his team for the MAC/VAL museum in Vitry-sur-Seine (France) in 2007. Using movement, objects, images and sounds, La Gégène evokes the Algerian War and its related acts of violent torture as well as today's media deluge. Filmed in an experimental fashion, this documentary depicts the strength of this activist art work as it invites viewers to question social, political, historical, and contemporary events. - A co-production by Lowave and MAC/VAL Museum, 2008.

18-21/09/2014 Video Projects: Body Politics @ Beirut Art Fair [Beirut]


Silke Schmickl curated this year's Video Projects at Beirut Art Fair 2014Body Politics is a programme consisting of 16 art films from the Middle East, North Africa, South and South East Asia that explores how contemporary artists comment on current political and social issues by means of their own bodies or those of others. Ranging from video art to experimental cinema, documentaries and performative experiences the selection highlights how the individual can react to the bigger and rigid body of our globalized societies by exploding conventional production modes and viewing patterns. Through personal, ironic and poetic approaches the artists invent a new visual language and take us on a colourful cinematic journey that reintroduces a notion of humanity.

15-28/09/2014 Arrangements by Hélène Agofroy online []


Arrangements is about a little house in a French industrial village whose different uses over time throughout the 20th century up to now show its transformation from an industrial to a leisure way of life. The film comprises of a scenario based on two actors moving into an L shaped 27m2 space designed after a real house. Throughout the duration of the film the actors wander and rearrange objects within the space. In a series of 6 sequences, each situation refers to a particular use of the architectural space throughout its history: a lunch room, a refuge during the war, a factory canteen, a locker room combined children’s playroom, a reconstructed house and a tennis club. Each sequence is introduced by a voice over describing a historical scene from the house's occupation. Finally, a series of images of the maquette of the original house photographed in various international landscapes and urban contexts today are displayed like a slide show.

Groebels Divine Invasion Portrait

Melancholy is part of the art film collection Human Frames that concentrates on psychological states such as happiness, desire, madness, fanaticism, fear, anger, isolation, mono no aware and impermanence. This volume presents nine contemporary works from Asia and Europe that arouse our curiosity of other cultural interpretations of melancholy. The films invite us to revisit the things we once considered familiar, to look at them from a different perspective, and ultimately, to subject our own cultural system of reference to scrutiny.
