WAITING FOR THE SECRET

Meggy Rustamova
Waiting for a Secret takes it starting point from a picture, revealing its secrets by zooming into the various details. Gradually, the picture becomes alive, raising issues such as isolation, linguistical confusion, pixelisation and the suggestion of movement within a still image....

50 TABLOTINS MUSIQUÉS

Joëlle de La Casinière
Joëlle de La Casinière's 'Les tablotins' are graphic illuminated poems; small paintings-poems. In a video, each one of the tablotins – digitized and enlarged 15 times on the screen – appears as a fixed shot with a soundtrack for about three minutes....

THE NATION

Pieter Geenen
The isolated people of Nagorno-Karabakh are living in a time vacuum since the cease fire of 1994. They live in a de facto independent country, but remain unrecognized as such by the international community. This area is still subject of an unresolved and long forgotten conflict which is the result of the collapse of the Soviet Union...

WHERE WAS I NOW?

Ken Kobland
A room in Brooklyn, New York, perhaps the room of the artist itself? The space reminds us somewhat of Hoppers famous interior paintings. When the clock is about to strike midnight, images start to appear on the walls of the appartement. Marlene Dietrich on the cover of Life Magazine, Superman, Nikita Kruschev, Laurel and Hardy...
