> DESCRIPTION

 

Back and Forth. And all over again brings together a selection of video works that look at the notion of movement within the video format.

Movements of the body that in the cinematic space become redeeming rituals, hinting at the constraints of our daily actions.

Movements of the camera that liberate the video from its conventional limitations by freezing or manipulating motions.

The selected artists explore modes of communication that do not rely on classical visual or verbal narratives to convey their meanings. The way in which the videos are constructed places the body and the camera in a reciprocal position; a state that highlights the interconnections between rules and narrative structures, cinematic language and performative acts.

The works on show suggest manifold trajectories, inviting the viewer to merge with their movements: a whirl, an undulation, a series of dance-like gestures or just a steady look. It is beyond these fluctuations that many stories can start to be unfolded.

Back and Forth. is a collateral event of the exhibition Nervous System.
