Steve Reinke
I am a baby lying in my crib and my name is little fagot....

HERE IS EVERYTHING

Cooper Battersby - Emily Vey Duke
Here Is Everything presents itself as a message from The Future, as narrated by a cat and a rabbit, spirit guides who explain that they’ve decided to speak to us via a contemporary art video because they understand this to be our highest form of communication. Their cheeky introduction, however, belies the complex set of ideas that fill the remainder of the film...

N12°13.062'/ W 001°32.619' EXTENDED

Vincent Meessen
The title of this video refers, through GPS coordinates, to a location in Africa, which is both specific and abstract. Two men wander through a deserted site in the middle of the desert. At first sight it’s an archaeological ruin. As the images reveal more of the environment, it becomes clear that the construction was built by the two of them, hewn from the surrounding stone...

13

Patrick Bernatchez
13 is perhaps the most literal portrait of the building, employing as it does a vertically descending tracking shot through each of the twelve floors...

COFFEE

Hans Op de Beeck
The fixed camera on table-height shows a couple as through a window: immobile and seated on opposite sides of a table behind a cup of coffee. There is no contact between them; they just seem to ignore each other in a painful and deafening silence. No word is uttered. In the background the noise of coffee machines and cutlery almost drowns out silly muzak...

MARCEL BROODTHAERS: MUSÉE D’ART DU XVIIE SIÈCLE

Jef Cornelis
Views of the 17th century ’Eagles Department’ in Antwerp: façade, wooden crates, postcards of 17th-century works on the walls and a small garden. Marcel Broodthaers is whitewashing the inscription ’Département des Aigles’ written on the fence in the garden...

LIED VAN MIJN LAND - DEEL 2: DIE WALKÜRE

This is the second part of the diptych ’Lied van mijn Land’ (’Song of my Soil’), based on Richard Wagner’s operas ’Der Ring der Nibelungen’ and ’Parcifal’. At Hunding’s...

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR

Shelly Silver
"A woman sets out to photograph moments of intimacy. On an Internet dating site she writes: ’I’m looking for people who would like to be photographed in public revealing something of themselves...’ What I’m Looking For, a 15-minute high definition video, documents this adventure; the connections formed at this intersection between virtual and actual public space...
