Im Rahmen des Videoprogramms dream operator von Sparwasser Hq werden von Bridget Crone und Judith Schwarzbart unter dem Titel un/timely narrations neue Arbeiten vorgestellt.
Der Pressetext ist nur in englisch zu lesen:
Like a dream itself, the exhibition title "dream operator" is a suggestive, illusionary, and elusive entity. Dream Operator: un/timely narrations is a compilation of video art that creates responses in tune to our vague impressions of the term "dream operator." As a time-based medium, video inspires story telling: it opens up another realm, in which the internal logic of the narrative allows you to pass across time and space, dream and reality, memory and imagination.
The following young artists
from London participate in this screening:
Aran Mann, Sleepwalk,
Mikko Canini's "Girls Against Boys" (Damien, Regan, Danny, Moira), punctuates the screening with enigmatic and menacing quotations from horror films, causing us to reach deep for memories, associations. On the other hand, Paula Wong's "Spit" and "Untitled" express interest in the language, choreography, and spaces of nothingness.
A visual delight in the image
is evident in many of the video-works. For example, in Aran Mann's
"Sleepwalk" and "Floating," rich imagery
creates a nostalgic, dreamy quality. While both pieces give a
sense of narrative or completion, the image dominates. Similarly,
Simon Woolham's videos tell childhood stories and anecdotes through
a series of drawings: the imagery, although detailed, reminds
us of a show-and-tell game, and so we again delight in a processes
of looking and seeing.
