A Trip to the Moon / Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm

A Trip to the Moon exhibition, Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm

A Trip to the Moon / Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden
8 February – 8 April 2012

Rosa Barba, Marco Brambilla, Dara Birnbaum, Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Gordon, Georges Méliès, Alex Reynolds, Lindsay Seers, Lillian Schwartz, Ryan Trecartin & Lizzie Fitch, Dziga Vertov, Ming Wong

The love affair between art and film started the moment the film camera was invented. This spring, Bonniers Konsthall will investigate the centurylong relationship.

A century after the first film experiments, moving image is an inevitable part of our visual culture. We interact constantly with moving images on different screens: computers, mobile phones and game consoles. With the development of portable equipment and social networks on the internet, the making, screening and distribution of film have become available to everyone. One could say that we have now reached the stage after film, a shift in technologies, maybe as decisive as the invention of film itself. A sad consequence of the invention of new technologies is that other techniques have to move to the graveyard of the outmoded and the obsolete. Those funerals also mean the burial of a certain vision.

How those shifts, those births and deaths in the history of the moving image, influence and change art is the core in this spring’s major exhibition project A Trip To the Moon.

  • The performance of Highly Strung featuring the giant 14 meter puppet took place on the night of October 28th 2011 during the Nati Frinj festival. The puppet took ten people to operate and had animation (largely created by the children at the local primary school) projected onto it from projectors mounted both on the ground and in the head of the puppet itself. Music by Stephen Oakes.

    Filmed by, Jacqui Schulz, Dave Jones, Gareth Llewellin and Cindi Drennan.

    With so many other forms of entertainment the puppet shows of today may seem like an already dead medium. However, you’d be wrong in thinking this, since Australian filmmaker Dave Jones shows us that there is still a fair amount of life in the ancient form of storytelling with his highly ambitious piece, “Highly Strung.”

    Performed on the back of grain silos, “Highly Strung” features an enormous 45-foot tall puppet that took 10 people to operate. The giant work of art was bolstered by projected animation done largely by local school children, giving the production an eerie Tim Burton vibe. This particular performance took place at the Nati Frinj festival in Natimuk, Australia.

    Jones said of the animation, “For the mouth we actually mounted a projector inside the puppets head and gaffer taped it to an iPod which we could control wirelessly from the ground 20 meters below.” Though it is just a five minute edit of the whole performance, the clip is captivating, immersing the viewer in a bizarre, but ultimately innocent world of dreams and wonderment.

  • Martha Cashman, Miranda Daly & Angie Shanahan Exhibition - West Cork Arts Centre

    Martha Cashman, Miranda Daly and Angie Shanahan Exhibition - West Cork Arts Centre

    Martha Cashman, Miranda Daly & Angie Shanahan - A Different Dimension, West Cork Arts Centre
    26 November, 2011 - 14 January, 2012

    Martha Cashman, ceramic artist; Miranda Daly, film-maker and Angie Shanahan, painter present an exhibition exploring a narrative of the former Wolfe’s Bakery in Skibbereen, West Cork.

    The artists are interested in the transition from one state of being to another and in conveying a sense of past human activity and industrial output associated with this building.
    Wolfe’s Bakery is the site for the planned new building for West Cork Arts Centre.

    The artists will present a Talk in the Gallery on Thursday 12 January 2012 at 1.30pm, and Inma Pavon, dancer, will present a performance in response to the work in the gallery on: Saturday, 14 January at 3.00 pm.

    Project Description - Wolfe’s Bakery:

    "A disused industrial building in the centre of Skibbereen town - formerly Wolfe’s Bakery - destined for demolition. Due to be rebuilt as the new West Cork Art Centre."

    Miranda Daly, film maker and employee in the West Cork Art Centre approached Martha Cashman, ceramic artist and me Angie Shanahan, painter, with the initial concept.
    The concept; to encompass through three distinct disciplines within the arts, ceramics, film and painting a unique exhibition which will capture the essence and deliver the narrative of the former Wolfe’s Bakery.

    As artists, all three of us are interested in the archival documentation of transition from one state of being to another. This element of change is especially appealing when it contains an architectural and historical nuance conveying a sense of past human activity and industrial output.
    We believe the former Wolfe’s Bakery in the centre of Skibbereen town perfectly encapsulates these elements.
    Fundraising for the new West Cork Art Centre has become a dynamic force within the town and beyond and is an exciting prospect.
    Our aim is to create a similar dynamic force and form discursive interaction between us as artists and the people of the West Cork peninsula. A parallel symmetry between what was, and what will be.
    Through our proposed exhibition with catalogue, we would like to prepare a visual narrative of the life of this old Bakery before its demolition.
    Allied with the verbal expressions of interest we have received from people in the business community towards this project, we believe the participation of The Arts Council through the awarding of an essential grant will help us to prepare and present an exciting exhibition in the latter part of 2011.

  • The twelfth commission in The Unilever Series at Tate Modern in London has been realized by the Berlin-based artist Tacita Dean. Tacita Dean conceived a piece that consists of an eleven-minute silent 35mm film projected onto a monolithic wall erected at the end of a darkened Turbine Hall. The work is entitled Film and deals with the typical nature of the analogue film in contrast to the digital image. Tacita Dean’s film is the first work in The Unilever Series that is devoted to the moving image.

    The Unilever Series: Tacita Dean, Tate Modern
    11 October 2011 - 11 March 2012

    Tacita Dean is a British artist now based in Berlin, best known for her use of film. Dean’s films act as portraits or depictions rather than conventional cinematic storytelling, capturing fleeting natural light or subtle shifts in movement. Her static camera positions and long takes allow events to unfold unhurriedly. Other works have attempted to reconstruct events from memory, such as an infamous thwarted attempt to circumnavigate the world.

    Dean’s interest in the cinematic also extends to her work in other media. The Russian Ending 2001 borrows its title from the early Danish cinema tradition of making two alternate endings for a film: one happy for the American market and one tragic for the Russian market. In this work, Dean annotated postcards of catastrophes with director’s notes.

    Many of Dean’s works show the ways in which architecture can be transformed by the camera’s lens. Craneway Event 2009 follows the choreographer Merce Cunningham (1919–2009) and his dance company rehearsing in a former Ford assembly plant, built of glass and steel and overlooking the San Francisco Bay. Dean’s film allows the ever-changing light of this environment to fall in rhythm with the dancers’ movements.

    Dean’s comission is especially designed to respond to the architecture of Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall. The Unilever Series has become renowned as one of the most exciting and impressive contemporary art exhibitions in London each year and it’s free to view.

  • Transilvania International Film Festival (TIFF 2011), ready to kick-off

    TRANSILVANIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL - TIFF 2011 (10th edition)
    3-12 JUNE 2011, CLUJ-NAPOCA // 15-19 JUNE, SIBIU

    The tenth edition of Transilvania International Film Festival is ready to welcome its guests and audience, with only one day left before the start of the most anticipated Romanian film event. In addition to the 200 films, TIFF 2011 presents its public with a generous offer of special events: the concerts, exhibitions and theater performances are only some of the events that make this year’s edition an unmissable one.

    For the second consecutive year, Unirii Square will host the opening ceremony of the festival, which will take place on Friday, June 3, from 8.30 p.m.  Starting this evening, the heart of Cluj-Napoca will undergo an impressive transformation, turning into a spectacular TIFF open-air venue.

    This year, the opening ceremony has set an impressive surprise in store for the public in Cluj. The French group of artists from the famous Compagnie des Quidams will bring to Ursus Open Air a performance full of magic and light: Herbert’s Dream. The show’s protagonists are extraordinary characters which evolve, depending on theatrical situations. From long, white figures on stilts, the audience will discover creatures from a strange, transforming world. Deformed and grandiose at the same time, clumsy and ethereal, as coming from another planet, with their heads light up they gather round a brilliant star to perform a magic ritual which will help the star ascend to heavens. The show was performed in over 100 cities, on several continents. Moreover, it opened various international events, such as the Dance Biennale in Lyon, the 1998 Football World Cup, Euro 2000 and Euro 2004.

    The film opening the festival’s anniversary edition is Potiche, an entertaining comedy written and directed by Francois Ozon, one of the best-rated French directors at this time. The film is an adaptation of the eponymous theatre play by Pierre Barillet and Jean-Pierre Grédy, and had its world premiere in the official competition of Venice Film Festival 2010. A contemporary social satire, the film is set in the context of the economic crisis afflicting the entire world. The action centers on Robert Pujol, the tyrannical head of the umbrella factory he has inherited from his father-in-law. The inhumane work conditions determine the workers to go on strike, ending with Robert being taken hostage. Suzanne, his wife, steps in and, with the help of her ex lover and present town mayor, tries to free the hostage and end the protest. In the end, Suzanne will take the reins of the factory, managing to restore an almost bankrupt business, to the great surprise of her husband, who is not willing to give up his position as factory director. Francois Ozon brings together a stellar cast, with some of the most important names from French cinema: Catherine Deneuve, recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award offered to an Outstanding Personality of the European Cinema at TIFF 2008, Gérard Depardieu and Fabrice Luchini.

    The TIFF 2011 opening ceremony will not lack important names, personalities from Romanian and international film industry, officials and representatives of foreign press.

    Directors Matias Bize (La vida de los pesces), Michael Madsen (Into Eternity), Fernando Léon de Aranoa (Amador), Miruna Coca-Cozma (Our School) are some of the special guests present, alongside Tudor Giurgiu – Festival President, host of the TIFF opening ceremony, Mihai Chirilov –TIFF’s Artistic Director and Sorin Apostu – Cluj-Napoca’s mayor.

    The male basketball team U Mobitelco BT Cluj, winner of the National Basketball Championship, will also be present at the event.

    The theatre performance series Theatre at TIFF starts on Friday, June 3, with the play 9 degrees in Paris, by Peter Kerek, which will be played at the Hungarian Theater starting 7.30 p.m.

    TIFFashion, the series of events meant to connect the two worlds of film and fashion, also starts at Hotel Continental – the new home of fashion dedicated events, with the exhibit Dressing the Story: Film & Theatre Costumes by Doina Levintza, which can be admired until June 9.

    The first day of the festival is also the first day of screenings at Mănăştur Open Air, a new festival venue, which invites the public living in Mănăștur district, on every TIFF evening. The access to all screenings at Mănăştur Open Air is free.
