REFRACTED REALITIES at VIDEONALE.17

In optics, “refraction” refers to the bending of a beam of light, a change in direction which occurs at the moment when it passes from one medium to another. Through refraction, the light wave alters course, changing the way we perceive the objects it illuminates in the process. This optical deviation requires us to repeatedly correct our gaze, comparing the beginning and end points of our perception with reality, and bringing the object we see clearly into focus. In its figurative sense, refraction refers to a critical reflection on the means and channels of visualization, and by extension the possibility of a rearticulation of our view of things – how they are, were, or apparently always have been.

Johan Grimonprez

Johan Grimonprez’s critically acclaimed work dances on the borders of practice and theory, art and cinema, documentary and fiction, demanding a double take on the part of the viewer. Informed by an archeology of present-day media, his work seeks out the tension between the intimate and the bigger picture of globalization. It questions our contemporary sublime, one framed by a fear industry that has infected political and social dialogue. By suggesting new narratives through which to tell a story, his work emphasizes a multiplicity of realities.

Christoph Faulhaber: Revolution & Architecture

Kunsthalle Osnabrück / June 15 to October 2, 2018
With "Revolution & Architecture" Christoph Faulhaber (* 1972 in Osnabrück, lives in Hamburg) conceives, builds, designs and opens a whole series of very different rooms in the Kunsthalle Osnabrück. In order to discover the revolutionary aspect of these "architectures", one has to look at the social implications of interior design in general. In the forum the visitor then enters Faulhaber's cinematic autobiography "Every Picture is an Empty Picture" as in the eye of the cyclone: The work is split into 15 individual films and surrounds the visitor in a circle.

Breaking News
Von Kelterborn Collection

Over the past 20 years, the Frankfurt couple Mario and Julia von Kelterborn have put together a collection mostly of politically explosive, socially themed video art and photography by internationally known artists. It is their conviction that art can help us to understand the present day with all its complexity, contradictions and disturbing cruelty, but also its positive potential.

B3 Biennale of the Moving Image 2015
EXPANDED SENSES

Works

In a special exhibition to the theme EXPANDED SENSES, The B3 Biennale of the moving image presents national and international artists whose work deals with the subjects ART BODY COMMUNICATION.

www.b3biennale.com


Exhibitions will take place in the different museum and institutions of the Rhein-Main-Region simultaneously. The presentation in the Museum Angewandte Kunst, the center of the B3 festival, references these contributions conceptually. In a time span from 1973 to 2015, works are connected that adhere to the ‘conditio humana’ as well as the theme of the B3. The exhibition is conceptualized as a kind of ‘moving image library’. Due to its architecture and the artists’ various uses of the most modern technology, the exhibition promises to be an exciting tour, in which it will become clear that, for example, the dialog between east and west in form and content is becoming ever more alike and that many artist strongly mirror the socio-political reality in their works.

The exhibition in Museum Angewandte Kunst brings 15 international positions and a selection of 13 Chinese artists together.

About the video

Flight from the City is a film about connection, love and separation.

Starkly shot in ‘black’ water, it focuses on the bond between a mother and daughter. This poetic, emotive film will strike a chord in all of us, reflecting our own relationships whether it is with a child, a parent or a partner.

The film was shot in March 2015 in the hot spring at Fludir in Iceland for a new composition, Flight from the City by Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson.

The performers Tristan and her daughter Leela created a very natural narrative of connection and separation between parent and child, which has a universal resonance. Although it was not the intention in making this piece, this focus on the intimacy between a parent and child resonates with the plight of the many families in the current crisis in the Mediterranean.

This is the second collaboration between Jóhannsson and Langan, the first being The Floating World (2013).
