“ANALOG READY-MADE FOR DIGITAL REDEEM-AID”
A project by Visualcontainer Italian Videoart Distributor and Promotion

Den Haag, Netherlands


Curatorial Statement:
What happens if we resort to the dear, familiar objects of old in our current time of de-materialization and virtual living? What is the result if we set up narrations and investigations into pixel-mediated sceneries
starting from our day-to-day interactions with ordinary things?
Marcel Duchamp took a questioning look to common items and turned them into ready-made pieces of art which have just revolutionized the way we think about art and possibly the way we do think about the world.
In lighter, most diverse technical and poetical ways, all artists on show have chosen some daily and familiar articles as well, and put them at the centre of surprising actions where they undergo all sorts of unexpected
utilizations and unpredictable fate.
Will this help us fill the gap with the physical world in our ever-growing addiction to the digital realm? And will this suggest any positive way to a balance with our space and belongings within, thus resolving our reality
and identity in the most controversial and puzzled society we’re floating in?
Sometimes a solid hold seems to be well fitting and redeeming on behalf, and those videos have plenty on offer …

ITALIAN VIDEO EMERGENCIES


Dates:
Tue Sep 15, 2009 00:00 - Mon Sep 14, 2009

Italian Video Emergencies
A special selection from VISUALCONTAINER
Italian Videoart Distributor

15 september - 30 october 2009
Only on VisualContainerTV - http://www.visualcontainer.tv


VisualContainerTv is happy to present a videoscreening with most challenging Italian video artworks,
provided by the archive of the sole Italian distributor.
After welcoming some of the most interesting international organisations dealing with videoart, it's high
time to show a selection of made-in-Italy videos filing under the distinctive feature of emergency:
because of both its urge for expressing and comprehending contemporaneity in Italy and beyond and of
its ever-growing need for emerging and circulating, also thanks to the promotion by VisualContainer.
The ExhibitContainer section, usually dealing with video compilations from
international videoart festivals and curatorial projects, is now presenting 22 artists
who have gained national and international reputation.
Artists:
Rebecca Agnes, Francesco Arena, Riccardo Arena, Alessandra Arno', Elena Arzuffi, Barbara Brugola, Silvia Camporesi, Pascal Caparros, Iginio De Luca, Maria Korporal, Luca Christian Mander, Pietro Mele, Patrizia Monzani, Sabrina Muzi, Tomoko Nagao, Christian Niccoli, Matteo Pasin, Cristina Pavesi, Mauro Romito, Sabrina Sabato, Natalia Saurin, Enzo Umbaca, Dubravka Vidovic

Besides, the monographic section "SpecialOne" is welcoming the video project
BREATH/RESPIRI by Francesco Arena.

For this work, Arena has produced a series of 23 videos from 2004 to 2008, each of
them being interpreted by a different male or female character, in order to give
way to two-colour obsessions of faces breathing behind a glass (which often let
themselves go to "forced" yet really touching intimate moods).
Each video has been performed by 23 international musicians coming from several
environments, who have specifically composed brand new sound tracks.

* all videos are distributed by Visualcontainer http://www.visualcontainer.org
