argosfestival 2005

13.10.2005 - 22.10.2005

As in previous years the fifth edition of the argosfestival provides a free port for a wide range of audiovisual art forms. It’s a wide work area that is in constant evolution, subject to societal and technological developments. The festival programme reflects this
variability, going beyond the traditional delineations between disciplines and media, and offering a valuable perspective on numerous in-between spaces — in cinema, television, media art and visual art. Film, video, audio, installation and means of performance nestle together in a wide variety of both Belgian and international work.

The products of several generations, historical and new work, all complement each other, creating breathing space for a multitude of trajectories. Beyond the origin, language and context in which they were realized, clear connections can be made in regards to formand content. The search for new narrative environments and relations between (the experience of) space and time; a resistance to conventional audiovisual forms and (mass)media and the immaterial stream of images that overrun us on both television and industrial cinema; a craving for adventure in expression and perception, learning how to see and hear (all over again): these are just some of the lines of flight which the programme traverses.

Four themed programmes form the backbone of the festival. In the exhibition Multipistes Jean-Christophe Royoux focuses on a generation of young French artists who propose post-cinematographic forms, deconstructions or alterations of the familiar notions of projection and identification. The works in the programme Black & White-outs also question the basic conditions of cinema, by making radical choices for monochrome images and exploring the physiological relationship between hearing and seeing. Challenging and destabilizing the dominant position of the image constitutes a directional guideline in the film and ...
