Special Guest Screening

Vernissage: 23 August, 19:30

In collaboration with the Rivetti family we turned two windows of their holiday house in the woods for 3 hours in the evening into screens and invited the public to pass by and enjoy with us the art screening on the large balcony.

For Ceresole Reale we have chosen to show our program Borders and Migration and the video Evighetens Avkom of the program Imaginary Landscapes, creating a confrontation between a wild panorama of remote landscapes and the theme of migration. Migration is a wide topic that can be seen from various angles. With our screening in Ceresole Reale we would like to raise the question of what migration means in places in the mountains. Here animals follow their own cycle of migration since ages. Young people however recently are leaving their home villages, choosing life in a big city. In return people temporarily migrate to the mountains to escape the unbearable heat of the urban space so in summer Ceresole Reale becomes alive. Finally all is intertwined with a global movement of people of different race.

Window 1 - Imaginary Landscapes
Anders E. Hultgreen (NO): Perpetual Progeny (2013) - 14’00 min
Two parallel landscapes. A being`s journey through a landscape beyond nature; a landscape parallel to the visible world. The video is part of a project to explore the concept of landscape and the narrative. By re-contextualizing visuals of a landscape, footage from different geographic places, the artist aims to achieve an abstract dimension, reaching an experience of a universal geological landscape.

Window 2 - Borders and Migration
25 years ago the iron curtain fell in Europe and opened new streams of migration. Yet sometimes we still build inner and outer borders to protect us from the foreign and the strange. Like some animals we need to defend our precious ground. There are similarities indeed between us humans and the animals like this defence of the territory. But is migration and change of place, a natural phenomenon in the wildlife, just a burden for the human race?
