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

Annika Kahrs is an artist who primarily works with film, performance and installation. In her work she examines representation and interpretation; she is interested in both social and scientific constructs, as well as evolved organic relations such as those between humans and animals. Her films oscillate between obvious staging and documentary-like observation; she is curious – measuring the environment, adding and subtracting – and she never hides herself in the film, even if her presence is only revealed in a short glance from an actor to the director.

Kahrs videos are like composed choreographies. Music often plays a role in her films, not only presented pictorially or on the audio track, but converted into image; through her selection and the ensuing adjustments during the process of editing partitur turns to film, and, subsequently, this film as partitur can turn into another film in the viewer‘s mind.
