Featured videos

Anita Beckers selection of videos for Independent Collector

In an exclusive interview with IC she talks about the technological progress that keeps reinventing the genre and her different roles she faces as a collector, gallerist and curator.

Artemovendo – in collaboration with Goethe Institut Porto Alegre

The video works shown in Artemovendo present a morphology of ambiguous entities, creatures or technical devices. Natural environments are contrasted with artificial, fully computer-designed worlds. Sometimes it is difficult to distinguish whether we have been invited to take a look at the outside world or into a laboratory; even dimensions appear to be chosen arbitrarily. Or do we happen to be entering a microscopically small universe that has been magnified many times over?

"Ajonjolí y otros moles"
Chance, Observation and a Poetics of the Personal

A series of pieces which deal with chance and observation of the every day; that which in our perception is hidden unless we slow down and take a closer look.

Stiftung imai – inter media art institute

The Düsseldorf based foundation imai – inter media art institute was founded in 2006 in order to establish an institution in Germany dedicated to the distribution and preservation of media art and associated activities.

Statement

Melanie Manchot’s practice employs photography, video and film to explore performative situations, often looking at the individual in relation to cultural and social conditions as well as to public space. Situated at the threshold between the documentary and staged events the work frequently involves the participation of strangers and articulates modes of individual and collective experiences and relations.
Across distinct projects the practice examines potential meanings and formats of portraiture and its conflicting relationships to issues of subjectivity and representation. Many of the projects involve performative processes where the camera becomes an organising principle, which structures the event. An engagement with group portraiture is a continuous thematic within the practice, questioning notions of the individual in relation to both communities and the notion of the crowd.
