Where: INDIA - Lower-Himalayan Valley of Sattal Estate, near Bhimtal, in Kumaon, Uttarakhand
When: February 19-20-21 2010
As usual, in the Carnival of e-Creativity, in the lovely little Lower-Himalayan valley of Sattal Estate (near Bhimtal, in Kumaon, Uttarakhand), through February 19-20-21 (Friday-Saturday-Sunday), live performances and presentations by a wide range of cutting-edge e-Creative practitioners from around India and the world, together with an incredible canvas of screenings and sounds works.
In this context two recent video works by Caterina Davinio: "Ma-mma", post-dada / post pop video experiment dedicated to the mother of the artist and to the first word that every one of us has pronunced. This short video, created in 2008, became popular with the inclusion in the Venice Biennale 2009 (Détournement Venise 2009 event) at ScalaMata Gallery. In Settal will be also present "Big Splash", realized in 2009, based on digital images and digital sound on the topic of water. The photography series elaborated in "Big Splash" is part of the homonimous installation shown in 2009 in the itinerant tour EAU=O, which was in Rome at Complesso Monumentale San Michele in Ripa, at Scuderie Aldobrandini (Frascati), and at Rocca dei Rettori (Benevento), Faticart curator.
Do not miss this occasion for having a fabulous creative blast all together in India, and warmly welcome you to join over the extended weekend too, if you can.
