Starting from the commitment of Gallery S O to explore the role of the contemporary object in the field of art, design and craft, the screening will focus on the strategies of representation and presentation of objects within the framework of moving image as a plastic medium.
From reflecting the curious eye of the maker, to seemingly ‘touching’ the filmic realm, the selected works suggest and activate uncommon dynamics between static forms, their supposed role or function and the ‘spectator’ gaze. The objects in the videos can be randomly found or carefully selected, fetishized or assembled, worn, caressed or displayed in alternate still lives according to an undisclosed classification system and a silent, surreptitious and sometimes magical language.
The screening includes works by Luke Burton, Tiziana La Melia and Tamara Henderson, Stephanie Mann, Bernhard Schobinger.
Curated by Valentina Bin and Simina Neagu.
Seats are limited, please come early to secure a place.
Drinks will be served from 8 pm, the screening will start around 8.30 pm.
