VisualcontainerTv presents on ExhibitContainer - format dedicated to the most interesting international Videoart projects and festivals- "Flowers Of Chaos " Chinese Animation Videoart selection curated by Cecilia Freschini (independent curator based in Beijing) in collaboration with Artverona Fair (It)

Project Statement
The aim of this project is to highlight a specific sector of Chinese video art by focussing attention on its particular origins. What do the artists selected, all from the Chinese mainland, see when they look around?
Chaos! Overwhelming disorder, which they deal with through their voice: tales and allegories that investigate today's society in an ironic manner, though without being afraid of tackling the Party's heavy ideology.
Like plants growing in a hostile terrain, their roots burrow deep down towards an uncertain source of nutrition, and they proliferate in the depths, beyond naked social distress. They are flowers born from chaos, drunk with the energy that surrounds them, but also fatigued by the continuous and incessant process of urban modernization. In their search for an identity they are forced to elude the oppression that has so harshly tested their very creative survival.
By Cecilia Freschini

“In the traditional collage different materials and sources are composed onto a surface, but in this case, into a single digital video.
This program is based on films using found footage, multiple video-channels, paintings and photographs that are rearranged, cut and (re-)edited into a layered composition. Motion based collages offer the possibility to the artist to make a statement without the need for an explicit explanation of their rearrangement or intentions, as they are open to interpretation by comparing the different visual elements”

About Les Instant Vidéo Festival
The festival Les Instants Vidéo (international video art
and multimedia festival) wants to be a space/time where destinies come
across each other, where new cartographies of creation can be woven,
where new lines can be opened in direction to new comets...

Les Instants Vidéo Numériques et poétiques is a non-profit
art organisation (association law 1901). It inherited from the
Festival founded in 1988 in Manosque (Department of Alpes de Haute
Provence). Since 2004, it is based in Marseille and cultivates
nomadism. We are always looking for the encounters of publics and
artists that we like to name the electronic poets.

About FESTIVAL MIDEN, KALAMATA, Greece
Festival Miden*, the first Greek video art festival presented in open
public spaces, is an annual video art & new media cultural event
held in Kalamata, GR.
The festival is founded, organized and curated
by a team of contemporary Greek artists, who are all linked with
Kalamata since childhood. It is an independent organization, supported
by Kalamata’s Historic Centre Organization, the Messinia Chamber of
Commerce and the Municipality of Kalamata.
The main purpose of the
festival is the free presentation, promotion and development of Greek
and international video art and new media art, in times dominated and
defined by “image” and “technology”, creating a new, alternative,
peripheral meeting point for emerging and established video and media
artists from Greece and all over the world.

Since 2005,
Festival Miden has been gradually established as one of the most
successful and interesting video art festivals in Greece and abroad and
has been a significant point of cultural exchange for Greek, European
and international video art.
Festival Miden has presented screening
programs, exhibitions and collaborations all over Greece, while
collaborating with various art groups, art schools, art spaces,
organizations and other festivals in Greece and internationally.
(*Miden means “zero” in Greek)

“A butter cow for a Zen poem. Acrobatic balance exercises in a
“cylindric cube”. A water spill runs through a city while life rolls
smoothly. The calm charm of a boy moulding clay objects in a
stroboscopic whirlwind of images. An unusual way to serve breakfast.
Thrown bags that come to life drawing us to unexplored abandoned areas
of the city -and the mind. Sisyphean repetitions of “it” and the “self”.
Unexpected explorations, explanations and interpretations of the world,
acrobatic studies, balances of the mind and semiotic games on
perception, vision, communication, post-modern culture and linguistics.
Endless references, metaphors and displacements in a selection
regarding the sensitive equilibrium of human existence and the
fluctuations of life. Like stepping on one leg...”
By: Gioula Papadopoulou, Giorgos Dimitrakopoulos.
