SIGHTLESS

Michel Lorand
SIGHTLESS is filmed in the heart of the countryside. In the middle of a vast grassland, a collection of stones has been overgrown with brambles and weeds. On top of this tumulus three trees are slowly dying, unable to get sap from their roots to their branches, because farmers removed a small layer of bark.

FRÄNZ ÜND KOFÖN [SERIAL]

Messieurs Delmotte
“My work is not a performance – and actually even less of a good idea.” The videos by Messieurs – or Monsieur - Delmotte spare nothing or no one and they trivialize anything that comes within his reach, including himself. His works are not self-portraits, nor transpositions of the author in one or more imaginary characters...

BEAUTY PLUS PITY

Cooper Battersby - Emily Vey Duke
The contemporary fables of Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby propose that existence is abject, farcical, and messy. In their richly textured videos, Duke and Battersby employ live action footage, scavenged images, and simple animations to create episodic structures that evince a simultaneously utopian and dystopian world view...
