MY SUMMER 77 WITH GORDON MATTA-CLARK

Cherica Convents
This film document is an addendum to the original Office Baroque film that was realised by Cherica Convents in the seventies. The film consists of never unveiled reflections & images of Gordon while preparing one of his last building cuts ‘Office Baroque’...

HIGH TIDE

Lukas Marxt
High Tide hypnotically fixes its gaze on a landscape that’s either prehuman or postapocalyptic, but definitely a timeless arrangement in shades of gray — Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness. Stiff, dry and dully gleaming like damp tar, they tear a hole between the dark, gloomy sea and the grayish sky...

GENTLEMEN TROUBLES

Messieurs Delmotte
This video was realized for the performance 'Problem Child' in 2013. Messieurs Delmotte worked together with Mark Bombastik as a performer and Jessica Broscheit for the realisation, which resulted in a series of performances that were acted out in public space in and around Hamburg, Germany...

BLACK RAIN WHITE SCARS

Lukas Marxt
Black Rain White Scars depicts a twilight of reality. With the steady shot of a Gotham-like cityscape, Lukas Marxt guides us between vestiges of visionary architecture and narrow planted apartment buildings. As we’re searching for our relational point within it, the overwhelming murmuring of the human, car, and boat traffic, at the same time marginalises our position...

But there, in the narrow spaces just beyond the reach of bureaucracy, lies the Brussels that still breathes...

PERTH+6HRS

Wendy Morris
Perth+6hrs is a personal reflection on the transience of family, on the fleetingness of childhood, and on the inevitable separations as children grow up and move away. The objects in the film are made by the son of the filmmaker. The film is created out of a single drawing....

NEITHER “IN” NEITHER “OFF” (IN BETWEEN VENICE AND BIENNALE)

Messieurs Delmotte

LOW TIDE

Lukas Marxt
A glacier. Icebergs. Floating icebergs. Cold fog gliding through the folds since eras. There is not much to see. As there is hardly something. Actually nothing. One speaks of polar bears and goes ashore only armed. One speaks of the cold and goes below. But actually there is only water. An element in variation. Water, ice and fog. Can you see anything? Something different? I don´t think so...
