MEDIATIONS
environment/space/performativity

 
Project outline:

implementation: october - december 2010, Galeria Szara in Cieszyn
exhibitions, concerts, video projections, lectures.

The project 'Mediations' presents contemporary trends and tendencies in audiovisual arts, which are examined in the context of: environment/space/performativity.
What will be explored are the pervasive spaces of artistic utterance using contemporary digital media.

‘Environment’ - will present artists who create their own world from “the pieces of  reality”, observations and recordings of moments and little histories.

In the context of ‘Space’ we will see works which exceed the comprehension of vision and sound, works causing the interruption of the linear communication or absorbing the audience into its structure.

While in the context of ‘Performativity’ duration, process of happening, interaction are the keywords; realized works during the process of creation are often influenced by the surroundings/environment or even demands contribution of the audience.

The junction and interaction between audio and video and its power of performativity seem to be the most interesting elements of the project. The historial context is also essential for understanding the course of evolution of multimedia arts.

The project includes exhibitions, video projections, meetings, discussions, as well as  concerts and performances.
