The new edition of Time is Love is based on the difficulties experienced by the earthmen to love. Simply love. Being in connection with the Other is not an easy thing in present times. We attend a fold of the individualities, a fainted solidarity and a blatant indifference for the Other. Love is a universal theme, within the reach of each. It comes along with the biggest human sufferings: the refusal, the solitude, the evil to be, the vengeance, the treason, the disappointment, the shame. The loving feelings recover the desert of our biggest troubles as our most beautiful enjoyments. Thirty selected artists venture on the thread of this tricky ambivalence. They deliver us without concession a range of complexities, bitternesses and passions generated by human relationships.

The selection operated by Kisito Assangni (artist and curator) states multiple sufferings, tearings and impossibilities of rapprochement. The presented bodies are in the heart of these individual and collective tightnesses. They are the main vectors passing on the notions of voracious passion, nostalgia and sensual slowness.

If Time is Love.5 raises a dark portrait of the human feelings, lights of hopes live and resist nevertheless. If today the time is synonymic money, Time is Love strives to avert the gaze towards more essential values so that the time can rhyme with that of the love, the gathering and the let go. Love as universal feeling extricates itself here from traditional clichés and from a timeless idealism. It is declined, scrutinized and translated with depth and intensity, just like the complexity of mankind.

Project [SFIP] is a multi-national exhibition process and a platform for critical thinking, researching and presenting African video art.

The technocultural revolution has democratised cultural and artistic practice through everyday access to new media. At the same time, the pervasive presence of technology in our lives has raised questions around privacy, surveillance and ownership, the dominance of Western media in globalisation, as well as the privilege of access in the developed world. The [SFIP] network is dedicated to the diffusion of new experiences worldwide through film and video. It is unfortunate that contemporary African art remains largely associated with sculpture and painting. Much work remains to be done in adequately researching the creative energy of the continent, especially within the last decade.

This exhibition presents a selection of African video art that stands beyond the clichés that remain associated with the dark continent and the postcolonial image. It seeks to bring viewers closer to idiosyncratic readings of African video art and its thematic concerns which are largely ignored. ‘Still Fighting Ignorance & Intellectual Perfidy’ contextualises African video art within a larger cultural framework.

Reflecting an age of inter-cultural migration, [SFIP] presents African video artists who live in Africa, Europe and USA whilst providing a meeting point for knowledge and interest in the relationship between self and society. Most works address issues of alterity, identity, tolerance and social relationships as artists reflexively consider their sense of place and belonging in an increasingly interconnected world.

From experimental video to short film, this show focuses on aesthetic and methodological perspectives of fighting ignorance and intellectual perfidy in contemporary African art. The project tells Africa's story by African new media artists as seen through the lens of the relation between tradition and modernity.
