in Z-BAR, BERGSTRASSE 2, BERLIN MITTE
SATURDAY APRIL THE 28TH, AT 10 PM
Sparwasser HQ proudly presents No. 17 and Hit by Tits, two films by Norwegian artist Jannicke Låker. Besides Loverfilm by Michael Brunnstrup (D), and Let's go bananas by Bo Melin (N) will be shown.
In one sense the films by Jannike Låker, now living and working in Berlin, can be described as hilarious. They are entertaining, since one is seduced by the straight forward narrative and the realistic staging of the events. However, they are leaping into a point where they turn almost painfully embarrassing.
In both films Låker plays
the aggressor from behind the camera, where she stages herself
as the dominating part. She investigates the psychological trajectory
in gaining another persons confidence, only to spoil their innocence
by using them in a manipulating game of humiliation and taking
away their dignity. This is taken to an extreme, but functions
as a criticism of society by pointing at a very negative, though
commonly recognisable, side of human behaviour.
As bonus tracks on this Saturday's
video screening, Låker has invited the German artist Michael
Brunnstrup to show Loverfilm, and Norwegian artist
Bo Melin, to show Let's go bananas. You are offered
11/2 hours of interesting art videos in the comfortable sorroundings
of Z-bar Kino. The programm will start at 22.00 sharp!
