We will close the festival Region ø Video Art Festival with a unique Installation Performance
"SHIFTING GAZE" IS A FILM AND INSTALLATION CREATED FOR LARGE SCALE OUTDOOR OR INDOOR SPACES THAT SITS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN FILMMAKING, THEATER-DANCE, DIGITAL ART, MUSIC AND SOUND DESIGN.
Shifting Gaze” is a site specific video-art-music installation about CHOICE, DESIRE and MEMORY. Conceived and directed by Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video-artist) and created in collaboration with Erica Glyn (Music production, composer and singer) and Isabelle Duverger (Photography and Graphic Animations). The project nature is based in creative collaboration between different disciplines.
The piece challenges self-expression and invents new forms of desire, breathing life into the medium and navigating on a new notion of choice, linked to desire and memory, choice being the present, memory representing the past and desire, the drive for a future. What we want (desire) is linked or conflicting with what is expected from us (identity, memory), and choice is the act upon which we build ourselves. Underneath these mirrored imageries lie many stories about limits, freedom and self-perception: stories of the mind.
The festival "Region Ø" will showcase the best video art pieces produced by Spanish and Latin American artists as well as Latinos living in New York. The focus will be on artists who lived or are currently living in New York, or who have a strong connection to the city. The Festival is curated and organized by Eva Mendoza and Laura Turégano.
