Videoart selection by Giorgio Fedeli (Italy)

CHARACTERS
New people, new video identifications
"The video device has represented a privileged medium in contemporary art history to identify the anthropological coordinates of mankind, thanks to its ability in slipping into the spaces of living and shooting both the most ordinary and the hidden identities in our walks of life, thus bringing the "different", the marginalized, the '"other"ones to light.
For over forty years the videocamera has become the bearer of possible visions of the world and its actors by operating from some vantage point directly inside, in contact with or as an emanation of the real: in such a way, it has steadily coped with the problem of attributing identity to people who are actually in constant and unpredictable mobility of roles and designations.
What are therefore the possible characterizations of our and other’s self nowadays, when the traditional biological and social labels seem to have been torn and the physical and cultural traditions of our identity in some way been altered by an incessant technological and social melting pot?
The answer is likely to lie in a delicate balance between the will to bring back our human specificity and the proactive attention to the most plausible suggestions of all new issues that are behind our doors or already in our homes."
Giorgio Fedeli

OODAAQ Festival, Rennes "Best of 2011" on VisualcontainerTV


Dates:
Wed Feb 22, 2012 23:55 - Thu Mar 29, 2012

VisualcontainerTv for the 3rd anniversary of the webtv is glad to presents the Best OF 2011 from OODAAQ Festival based in Rennes, France

About OODAAQ
Oodaaq is an island discovered in 1975 northeast of Greenland. This bank of gravel and silt, covered by several meters of ice, is said to be the most northern emerged land on earth.
It is on this inaccessible and invisible territory that we settled our camp, in order to explore contemporary artistic creation. The nomad inhabitants of Oodaaq are travelling the world and form a collective of creators
in constant evolution.
Leading an existence somewhere between reality and imagination, the island of Oodaaq can be seen as a metaphor for video- and photographic images. Although their models are most of the time concrete and real, the image they produce of them is by definition artificial, immaterial, manipulated and manipulating.
The gap between image and reality allows a poetic approach to our environment.
www.loeildoodaaq.fr

The first Oodaaq Festival of poetic images took place from 5 to 14 May 2011 in Rennes, with exhibitons, screening nights, video windows, as well as performances and a video-bus. More than 80 artists came to exhibit, screen and perform their work in more than 15 places throughout the city of Rennes.The success of the first festival, with 3800 visitors, leads l’OEil d’Oodaaq to reconduct this human and artistic experience with the second
edition of the festival in May 2012.

ON VIDEOS for hours and hours
curated by VisualContainer


A day dedicated to the actual trends of national and international videoart.With screenings from a compilation about the identity of the present-day video languages and times of conversation with the curators.

On the grounds of direct comparisons with art professionals and practitioners, it is apparent that videoart is a form of contemporary art that, despite existing for over fifty years, has not yet been assimilated by the art audience in our country, even though they are familiar with the most important art galleries.
In particular, it is possibly even more difficult to keep up with the video offerings of our very days, as a most diverse range of languages and proposals files under the name of videoart, from the most conceptual expressions to the contamination with performance, audio-visual multimedia research and artist’s film.
Whatever such expression may be, videoart is an art form increasingly in vogue in the contemporary scene as being very similar to the communication and social issues of our time and capable of showing artworks that are completely in tangency with the aesthetic and poetic values in current painting and photography.
On such basis, VisualContainer believes that the opportunity to spend a whole day at the Arte Boccanera Contemporanea gallery introducing and discussing the most recent Italian videoart production would be a truly valuable and stimulating opportunity.

ON VIDEOS for hours and hours therefore proposes a special videoart and new media screening, aimed at providing an overview of the possible aesthetic and poetic sceneries of videoart at the beginnig of the third Millennium, by presenting a selection of works produced in the last three years.
Of course, it is very very difficult to demarcate the precise boundaries of contemporary art research and propose final categories with certainty, also because, as above mentioned, the essence of videoart lies in the continuous movement of expressive formulas, but it seems rather reasonable to tell at least 9 categories that could identify what is being proposed by the artists in Italy in the first decade of Y2K, in absolute tangency with what’s also presented at an international level.

For every time, there is a zeitgeist and video art, like the other forms of contemporary art, is once again so abreast of it to provide the most expressive and questioning voice, as very well expressed by the screening on show. Giorgio Fedeli
