Festival Instants Vidéo has faced some changes due to COVID-19 situation in France and Italy. Some of the programme was cancelled while the exhibition and part of the screening programme were postponed to December and are about to open. The programme of Instants Vidéo includes again artworks from our distribution.
The exhibition of Instants Vidéo in Friche la Belle de Mai in Marseille will be open from December 16 to January 31. The exhibition includes Carolin Koss’s Emerald Green (2016) and Saara Ekström’s and Eero Tammi’s Biblion (2019).
Carolin Koss’s Emerald Green is a three-channel video installation about a dystopian world in which obscure forces steer a global fate, nature has been rendered extinct, breathable air has become scarce, and the sun has vanished due to human error and the exploitation of natural resources. The work focuses on three people who try to survive and escape into their sub-consciousness in order to re-imagine and re-build the contaminated world they live in.
Saara Ekström’s and Eero Tammi’s Biblion is also installed as a three-channel version. Running in three parallel images in black & white and colour, and complemented with an evocative soundtrack, Biblion is a poetic study on the medium of the book. A nocturnal mood leads way to a dreamlike world, where no reading is required and where books are dreaming of their own disappearance.
The screening programme in Marseille will also take place in Frice Belle de Mai. The programme “Les Muses” includes Inner Beauty 2 (2019, in featured image) by Helinä Hukkataival. Inner Beauty 2 is about fitness, beauty and beauty idols. An elderly lady is doing a fitness exercise – does it work?
The screening programme in [.BOX] Videoart Project Space in Milan is postponed. The programme includes Jonna Kina’s Akiya (2020), premiered at Berlinale Forum Expanded. The screening programme in Videodrome 2, Marseille, scheduled for November, was cancelled. It would have included Pauliina Salminen‘s Renversements (2020) and Marko Lampisuo’s National Landscape (2019).
