Farther Than The Eye Can See, Main Hall, Bann, 45 7 Broadway, Dry Standpipe (suchy Pion), Gowanus Canal, Nefandus
A sense of geographic, spatial and historical freefall attends this programme of works.
Farther Than the Eye Can See, Basma Alsharif (13 minutes):
An essayistic exploration of statelessness is conveyed through this visually gripping and astutely constructed tale of a mass exodus of Palestinians from Jerusalem, recounted over a dense, stroboscopic cityscape.
Main Hall, Philipp Fleischmann (5 minutes):
A 35mm reflexive deconstruction of the main exhibition hall of the Vienna Secession using nineteen specially designed cameras to kinetically record its space and architecture, Main Hall adds a purely cinematographic gesture to the history of this formidable White Cube.
45 7 Broadway, Tomonari Nishikawa (6 minutes):
The frenzied pace and conflicting rhythms of Times Square are captured through a dense tapestry of light and space achieved through rigorous optical printing and rich, eye-popping colour overlays.
Bann, Nina Könnemann (7 minutes):
An uncanny urbanscape is clandestinely observed, revealing a sense of alienation, self-consciousness, perhaps even shame.
Dry Standpipe, Wojciech Bakowski (12 minutes):
A startlingly raw interlaced video collage by celebrated Polish artist, musician and poet Wojciech Bakowski.
Gowanus Canal, Sarah J. Christman (7 minutes):
Sarah J. Christman continues her 16mm ecological studies with Gowanus Canal, in which contamination and compression of refuse intimate a stultifying state for one of the most polluted bodies of water in the United States.
Nefandus, Carlos Motta (13 minutes):
An evocative essay on pre-conquest homoeroticism, Nefandus searches for traces of untold stories and stigmatized historical accounts.
