When Video Meets Films

It has been a desire amongst videoegraphers to take part in the cinematography world, this events marks the on going artistic attempt to explore this frontier. It begins 2 years ago, when a group of French artists participated in a show at refusalon art space in San Francisco. That show’s name was “Postponed” (…The exhibition’s title was a play on the many possible uses of the word post: post-war; post-modern; post-industrial; post-minimal; or posterity. Such words stand as milestones to the passage of so-called “modernity” into uncharted territory. These words are also particularly relevant to this show, since themes of topography, culture, and temporality course works on…). Each night before every film we will view half an hour of video projection on the BIG SCREEN.The videos+films mixing is our small avant-garde…with peace blessing…
