MO
VEMENT- MEDIATING A MOMENT IN TIME AND A MOVEMENT IN HISTORY The FESTIVAL 2017 questions, twists and manipulates the meanings of MOMENT and MOVEMENT. While the FESTIVAL may create seminal/ visual objects of curiosity, complexity and ideas for speculation, it is not simply a moment of ‘art attack’. The second praxis of the FESTIVAL 2017 embraces platforms/ methodologies of pedagogy for public mediation and it forges co-extensive spaces and initiatives for such co-participants as artists, educators, school-cum-public learners to develop self, interactive or constructive learning. The FESTIVAL 2017 focuses on “MO(VE)MENT” and it accredits our daily gesture, attitude, act of identity, self/ co-existence, difference, intervention, detachment, escapism, nomadism. Every moment or movement in our daily life, or resistance to localization, globalization, or its hybrid mix (glocalism) is celebrated. The FESTIVAL makes every participatory moment count and makes every momentary memory further-lingering. Together the artists explore the extension of art form and kinaesthetic awareness, investigating the intelligence of visual and body form, and their intervention in space. The image/ imagined/ imaginary of each project restructures the relationship between the MOMENT of intervention and MOVEMENT bearing enduring thought-practice. Every frozen, visualized or performative moment embraces its intrinsic and intuitive value and the FESTIVAL brings this value further to public understanding or historical impact. “MOVEMENT” not only presents images or attitudes existing in “the current moment of space-time”, it supports projects with thought-discussion in “the (art, culture, urban, …) movement of the past or future” as well. The dialogical platform is not simply intending to renew a page in the ontology of history or globalism, nor spearheading geo-political culture towards a movement encompassing collateral event at the expense of discourse; rather, it emerges from a speculation with OUR TIME and a dialogue with history IN THE EVERYDAY. 


INTERNATIONAL FORUM ON CROSSING-BORDER BORDER-CROSSING | International Festival of Intermedia 2017
L1 CENTRAL COURTYARD- JCCAC Art Village
OCT 9 (MON) 5:00 - 6:30PM
EXHIBITION & POST-PERFORMANCE DISCUSSION


The forum brings the discourse of the crossing-border phenomenon to the centre of discussion, focusing on artworks or their branching-out ideas which narrate their connection and possibilities with other artworks in enacting or refreshing heritage and urban spaces, be they banal, unused, pop-up, or alternative. The forum is a new glocal mediated and/ or body-derived platform where the rich heterogeneity of cultural production is experienced as imaginative metaphor non-definitive.
The festival forum aims at assisting the co-participants to explore ways on how the conventional demarcation of space-time, global-local strategy can be transgressed, and how the local praxes can be positively assimilated to world-view experiments to create new, shared experience.
Tragectories of Platform:
1. The Phenomena of Population Migration, Border Issue, Aesthetic and the broader
2. Trans/ Inter/ Cross-media of the Festival

LUGARES DE ESCAPE
Reflexionar sobre el enunciado «lugares de escape» invita a pensar espacialmente sobre la propia acción de la huida y sobre cómo ésta afecta a la configuración subjetiva de los lugares (internos, externos y la relación entre ambos) que recorre. El acto de escapar parece que implica un desplazamiento (no necesariamente del cuerpo) y la existencia de un «desde» y de una línea hacia un «hasta». Cuanto más rápida es la huida más estrecha resulta la línea y cuando aquélla se ralentiza, ésta se puede ir ensanchando hasta conformar un lugar vasto en la medida en la que uno se ha permitido la percepción y el intercambio con lo que le rodea. En este sentido la huida resulta ser lo contrario de la voluntad de comunión y, a la inversa, cuando el movimiento de escape cesa puede darse esa interacción real con el contexto. 

Lugares de escape hay muchos y de distinta índole en función de cómo se vehicule esa huida y del tipo de coordenadas de nuestra existencia entre las que se produzca ese desplazamiento del foco, configurando trayectos y evidenciando topografías (físicas, emocionales, intelectuales, sociales, o relativas al estatus quo, etc) tan complejas como el propio ser humano. En la serie de vídeos de la muestra encontramos diversos ejemplos de ello. 

Pero ¿qué motiva la huida? por la dirección del movimiento que a priori involucra, podría parecer que únicamente lo que se quiere dejar atrás (por ejemplo, un peligro) pero es también posible que el impulso provenga de un anhelo de algo que se encuentra por delante (por ejemplo, con el objetivo de escapar de la rutina o para anestesiar emociones incómodas) y que, aunque aún incierto, pueda (en el primer caso) ser puesto a vibrar con lo propio para despertar aspectos de uno latentes o para (en el segundo) llevar el foco de atención a otro lugar menos perturbador.

Proyecto de videoarte internacional que nace impulsado desde la Fundación holandesa Stichting Ide - fixe (IDFX) en 2005 y coordinado desde 2007 por KREÆ 
[Instituto de Creación Contemporánea]. Ha sido creado con la intención de mostrar videoarte emergente y experimental en diversos países, como una plataforma democrática y accesible para nuevos curadores, videoartistas y público en general.

El proyecto consiste en la selección de 10 videoartistas de un país, a cargo del Comisario internacional, y la realización de variadas muestras donde se exhiben estos trabajos y a su vez se proyecta en formato de loop la obra de todos los videoartistas seleccionados en el resto de países donde se ha llevado a cabo DVD Project.
El evento se puede completar con actividades en torno al videoarte como charlas, talleres y conferencias.
Los vídeos que se presentan deben ser inéditos o cedidos en exclusiva para el propio proyecto. Éstos se agrupan en una  temática amplia, en la que se admiten todos los géneros.

En DVD Project todos los vídeos que se exhiben están a la venta, a un precio accesible de 50 € por obra. Su edición será limitada de 100 copias; e incluye una caja también diseñada y firmada por el propio artista que forma parte de la exposición. Los derechos de esta copia adquirida son para un visionado particular o educativo, nunca para fines comerciales o en centros de arte, galerías, sin el consentimiento y acuerdo firmado con el propio artista.

La muestra actualmente posee las creaciones de 17 países con video-artistas emergentes de Alemania, Holanda, España, Portugal, México, Perú, Brasil, Francia, Argentina, República Dominicana, Cuba, Italia, Macedonia, Austria, Marruecos y Eslovenia, aunque diversos comisarios internacionales están trabajando para que se amplíe a otros países, como Venezuela, Hungría y Nueva York.

Su duración por el momento ronda las 16 horas. En las exposiciones se  presentan los vídeos en proyecciones por países o en un bucle con  todos los países juntos. También se puede presentar con nuevos artistas en cabinas personalizadas con una mesa preparada específicamente para  acoger las cabinas de proyección, compuesta por monitores TFT, dvds y amplificadores, así como cascos y asientos. Además en una proyección se presentan el resto de países en bucle y se da la oportunidad al usuario a disfrutar también de vídeo “a la carta” es decir, poder escoger entre la nueva videoteca en la que se presentan más de 175 piezas.

Thu 27 July 2017

18:00 – 19:30 BST

«Translation(s) III; Bodies In Transit» is a unique film presenting 9 artists’ perspectives on globalisation and the movement of people. The film explores some of the most topical issues today, including migration, immigration, and refugees, and asks us to consider our underlying common humanity. 


The international artists explore the theme of «Bodies in Transit» through interdisiplinary video works. They reimaginine the flow of bodies across national and cultural barriers, as well as through more abstract interpretations. Featured artists include A4C (IT), Justin Ascott (UK), Damon Ayers & Tessie Word (US), Lynn Book (US), Jessica Ledwich (AU), Zoran Poposki (HK/MK), Chooc Ly Tan (FR/UK) and Tang Kwok-Hin (HK).


This video art project is curated by two European artists working in Hong Kong, Zoran Poposki and Laurence Wood, who will introduce the screening. 


Run time: 37 minutes.


— The film screening will start with a welcoming Chinese Tea tasting experience led by local tea experts, Tea Mandala.

— As part of CFCCA's Thursday Late programme.


On the last Thursday of the month CFCCA stays open until 8pm offering an opportunity to drop in and enjoy an evening in the gallery, or participate in a series of unique events exploring different aspects of the exhibitions programme.
