DESCRIPTION

ACCUMULATIONS is a themed video art exhibition curated by Sabin Bors for the inaugeration of Galerie Sherin Najjar's project VIDEO WINDOW. The thoughtful selection of video art includes works by artists such as Lars Buchardt, Christoph Draeger, Mihai Grecu, Kurt Hentschlager, Michael Najjar, Quayola and Reynold Reynolds.

Accumulation refers to a state of tension, a dramatic condition where various states create breaks, slices in time and transitions. The artists who participate in this exhibition make art that responds to this topic by exploring divergent and often problematic representations through cinematography, 3D mapping and projection, video composition and collage. They discuss various different representations in order to undermine the sublimative power of the image and to question the very construction of narratives today, in a time when the image turns into motion.

The display of the video works is of particular interest. The gallery window serves as a fine pellicle acting as a membrane between the inside and the outside. It also turns into a medium of transition, from a static to a moving image. VIDEO WINDOW explores new ways of relating with moving image art as the works seem to leave the gallery space in search for a motion and effectivity of their own.

The exhibition is accompanied by a new publication with an essay by Sabin Bors, curator and editor of Anti-Utopias
