Event has passed.


Directed by Helena Wittmann

Germany, 2018, 14 min., English with Lithuanian subtitles

An indeterminate location, summer. A group of people ask themselves where they might live. They imagine countries, communities, and places. Time passes. They listen to the song over and over again: “He woke up between the magical and the mystical, the practical and the political, the prophetic and the poetic, the tragic and the gloomy...”

World premiere of the film took place in Toronto IFF 2018.

Directed by Rosalind Nashashibi and Lucy Skaer

United Kingdom, French Polynesia, 2017, 18 min.

This collaborative work Why Are You Angry? revisits Gauguin’s images of women in Tahiti. Taking its title and its poses directly from Gauguin’s paintings, the project looks at the problems and also the potentials of imagining women through his particular gaze. The film moves between choreographed and informal footage of Tahitian women in front of their homes, at work, and in our rented apartment.

The film premiered in Documenta 14 (2017), and was shown at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art (Berlin), Tate St. Ives in Cornwall (UK) etc.

About the directors:

Rosalind Nashashibi (b.1973, United Kingdom) is a London-based artist working primarily in film, painting and printmaking. Her films use the camera as an eye to convey moments and events, merging everyday observations with fantastical and mythological elements. Nashashibi represented Scotland in the 52nd Venice Biennale, and her work has been included in Manifesta 7, the Nordic Triennial, Sharjah 10 and Documenta 14. She was the first woman to win the Beck’s Futures prize in 2003 and is this year nominated for the Turner Prize. She is currently Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at Goldsmiths University.

Lucy Skaer (b.1975, United Kingdom) is an artist based in Glasgow and London. Her sculptures, films, paintings and drawings often take found photographic sources as their starting point. Rooted in reality, yet subjected to a process of elaborate transformation, her images hover in the space between recognition and ambiguity, figuration and abstraction. Skaer exhibited at the first Scottish presentation at the Venice Biennale, where she also presented in 2007. She was nominated for both the 2003 Beck's Futures prize and the 2009 Turner Prize, and has exhibited internationally. In addition to the Nashashibi/Skaer collaboration, Skaer is a founding member of Henry VIII's Wives artist collective.

Belgium, 2017, 13 min., no dialogue, with English and Lithuanian subtitles

A light phenomenon travels over a landscape. We look into what lies in the shadow of our own lights, like looking up at the screen that lights up in the dark. “It” is an audiovisual investigation into a reality that temporarily changes, in a search, a quest for something to light up in the dark.

About the directors:

Anouk De Clercq explores the potential of audiovisual language to create possible worlds. She is interested in what lies behind ‘reality’ or in between the visible and the imaginary.

She has received several awards, including the Illy Prize at Art Brussels in 2005 and a Prix Ars Electronica Honorary Mention in 2014. Her work has been shown in Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, MAXXI, Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Ars Electronica, among others.

Anouk De Clercq is affiliated to the School of Arts University College Ghent as an artistic researcher. Anouk De Clercq is a founding member of Auguste Orts and is represented by Gallery Sofie Van de Velde.

Tom Callemin, born in 1991 in Ostend, Belgium, lives and works in Ghent. He studied photography and fine arts and works as a visual artist in photography and video. His work has been awarded and shown in solo exhibitions and has been included in several international group shows.
