Sila Sveta (Russia) / Monument video mapping / 3 min
A 3D experimental audiovisual artwork envisions the museum undergoing a cosmic eruption. The historic building appears at first to explode, and then to implode on itself, as if a black hole had emerged from the core of its interior. A metaphysical and evocative moment then unfolds at the climax. To enhance the effect, the authors of the idea Alexander Us and Yuri Kolokolnikov turned to Brodsky’s poem called Loneliness. The whole process is accompanied by Brodsky’s poetry.
Date and place of the public screening: Museum of History and Industry, Seattle, United States – 4th of November 2018
Sturm Der Liebe
Studio Sandy (Belgium) / Monument video mapping / 5 min 25
Everything bathes in mazarine blue. Birds announce a rising, undefined energy swelling in the distance. A whirlwind of colours rouses, dictated by the growing sound of distant voices. Emotions flare up in every corner and as chaos passionately takes over, a storm reaches its climax. The similarities between the build-up to a hurricane and the ups and downs in an ardent relationship are endless. Sturm der Liebe visualises this metaphor in all its facets. From the tiniest molecule finding its way to the eye of the storm to endorphins released, each element remains in constant movement. The tempest dies down and tempers have calmed. All seems peaceful again, but is it calm before the storm? Visualised by Nele Fack and accompanied by the lush sounds of AMyn (Niels Blondeel).

In our universe, there are always two forces opposing each other. From the charges of the electromagnetic field to the mirror image of matter and antimatter and the human concept of good and evil, they often confront or avoid, attract or repel each other. But what happens if they come together?

The Cherry Orchard
Parisa Karimi (Germany) / Monument video mapping / 10 min
Extract from an outdoor theatre play – The Cherry Orchard from Anton Chekhov, directed by Marlin de Haan and developed in cooperation with Parisa Karimi and Jan Patrick Brandt. The play is about city politics and development in Düsseldorf, especially in Düsseldorf-Flingern, a center of gentrification nowadays. The play also talks about the sale of lands and the expulsion of the inhabitants. In this version of Chekhov’s comedy, the characters become “squatters”. As the place of the show is the Kiefernstraße (a squatted street from the 80s), the play builds a link with the squatting culture of the 80s in Düsseldorf and the urban politics nowadays. To do so, Parisa Karimi built a soundcollage composed of interviews with kids about their visions for living, connected with interviews from archives about the street.
Date and place of the public screening: House number 9 on Kiefernstraße, Düsseldorf, Germany – From 18th to 20th of October 2018
All Together Now
Projection Teknik (Australia) / Monument video mapping / 6 min 45
Curraghmore, near Portlaw in County Waterford in Ireland, is the historic home of the Marquess of Waterford. For at least 6 centuries, it has been in the hands of the same family, the name being changed only once though marriage. The visual artists Nicholas Azidis and Rose Staff were invited from Australia to produce a work specific to the site that reimagined the Curraghmore estate with lively and colourful designs. These patterns pull their hallmark style from the vibrant sun of their home country, expressing the quality of light in bright, bold artwork.
Date and place of the public screening: Curraghmore Estate, Waterford, Ireland – from 31st of July to 5th of August 2018 (All Together Now Festival 2018)

NUCLEUS³ uses audiovisual means to ask the question: what do we expect from the future? Today is the nucleus on which the the future is crystallising out of the past. According to this motto the creation is divided into 3 acts, which are referring to stories from the past, the clarity of the present and the chances for the future. Videos of St. Ludmila Church deform the facade, architectural elements are played as instruments and the inner structure of the church is made visible. The illustration and deformation of concise sections of the facade and the interior symbolise individual stories or episodes that are linked to the building and will be associated with it in the future. The church becomes the narrator of these stories. The emotionally charged images provide an intense experience and are meant to induce inspiration, tab into memories and create a diversity of interpretation by the viewers.
Date and place of the public screening: St. Ludmila Church, Praha, Czech Republic – From 11th to 14th of October
