More than bodies from Videplay2010 Argentina - on VisualcontainerTV

Videoplay2010 ARGENTINA
Curator: Silvio De Gracia
1 March - 4 April 2011
Only on VisualcontainerTV
VisualcontainerTV is glad to present: MORE THAN BODIES, videoart selection from VIDEOPLAY
2010, Junin, Argentina.
MORE THAN BODIES includes video performances and other works which, though not clearly framed within the category of action art, reflect a deep anchorage in the performance 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. It’s an exciting body discourse, but this time the body has ceased to be an object-means to become a mediatized object. “More than bodies” project refers to new bodies in a new intensely ghostly and dissolving presence. By Silvio de Gracia.
