Athanasia (2017) | 14th Muestra De Cine de Lavapiés (Madrid, Spain)

So glad that film “Athanasia” in collaboration with Musician Rey Eisen is selected at the 14th Muestra De Cine de Lavapiés from 23rd of June to 2nd of July 2017 (Madrid, Spain).

 

 

The “Muestra De Cine de Lavapiés” is an event organized by a group of neighbors. A week of projections that is celebrated at the beginning of each summer in diverse spaces of the neighborhood. We like to take the cinema to the street. In this project nobody charges, nobody pays, we bet because the desire flows; not the money. A third and a half of the program of the show are integrated works that come to us through this annual call we now launch. We call on all friendly tribes to send us free audiovisual works: experimental pieces, shorts, menhirs, tasty stories, boars, insurgent documentaries, pirate ships and even bards.

Bipolar (2014) | HearteartH Video Exhibition (Berlin, Germany)

Bipolar (2014)
HearteartH | Video Art Exhibition
From 8th to 10th of July
Berlin (Germany)

 

 

HearteartH is a collective project for artists and media makers ideated by video artists Sonia Laura Armaniaco and Maria (Felix) Korporal. The concept took life from these two interlocking words: HEART and EARTH. The strong symbolism of the two words, which are inevitably associated with life, has a strong pull. One is drawn into it. In the almost fateful dependence of these terms of one another, they seem inextricably linked together, even permanently, forever.

 

original

 

HearteartH will be presented in a large festival with an exhibition, video screenings and a special AV performance night, from 8-10 July 2016 in Group Global 3000 and in Medienwerkstatt Bethanien, Berlin. In September 2016 the same video screenings will be shown in [.BOX], the space of Visual Container in Milan. Visual Container will also broadcast the project on VisualContainer.tv

Duration 12mn. 43s.

 

“The contemporary mythology as the representation of a catharsis. Thousand variations from human vacuum. Translated by the definition of our identities which became amorphous. Stasis. The alteration of our psyche. Vertigo. An existential schism. The Labyrinth built by Daedalus. Death is not an end in itself. Perhaps an inertia. Without reproduction. Neither transposition”.
