A special program by Elisabetta Di Sopra
The protagonists of this 4th edition of The Suspanded Glance, a special program by Elisabetta Di Sopra, are the video art works selected by Alessandra Arnò, the co-founder of Visualcontainer. Visualcontainer is an Italian archive which promotes and distributes Italian video-art both in Italy and abroad. It works on curating projects and it promotes cultural exchanges, publications and artistic events.
The number of those who express themselves through the most modern technological means is increasing among young artists. Video art allows the viewer to enter a powerful unification with the artistic experience, as it explores with new eyes surroundings whose potential is often ignored. This year selection features both the most extreme experimentations on digital synthetic scenery related to technology and the come-backs to narration and most classic experimentation.
Rides, by Flavio Scutti (Italy, 2016, 5’26”)
As if by dreaming, distant memories reveal some details on the future, through multiple layers of alternated images.
Weltanschauung – Il mondo come volontà di rappresentazione, by Matteo Pasin (Italy, 2016, 5’50”)
Thanks to one of Google Earth’s features, we can visualize and chronologically layer up all the images collected since 2001.
010, by Riccardo Muroni (Italy, 2015,11’11”)
A timeless place, where the anthropocentric view of mankind is subverted by the existence of alternative worlds.
Dreammachine, by Alessandra Caccia (Italy, 2015, 5’16”)
The artist examines himself creating a mood of almost-trance, where he liberates himself through an almost-dream.
Pic nic, by Barbara Brugola & Trond Arne Vangen (Italy, 2015, 8’00”)
The mise en scène of this “breakfast on the field” is not at all reassuring and the bucolic vibe is suddenly interrupted.
Slow, by Enzo Cillo (Italy, 2015, 6’33”)
A nocturnal chat. Meanwhile, road signs, the barking of a dog in the distance, the intermittent light of a street lamp, the wind through the leaves.
