  • T


    Ignazio Fabio Mazzola’s education in both fine arts and architecture is reflected in his artistic practice: he uses moving images to make autobiographical pieces, portraits of artists and works about architectural projects. Like Leandro Varela, Mazzola proposes films and videos that challenge standard lengths, focusing on very short visual statements. Made in 2017, T presents details of the houses built in La Martella (near Matera, Italy) by architect Ludovico Quaroni and his collaborators in the 50s. In T the rationalist façades are shown by way of high-contrast abstract glimpses.

  • It's About Time

    It's About Time

    “I tell you a story I have never told anyone before.”

    With It’s About Time, once again Roger Deutsch revives his fictional alter-ego Roger to tell a story about the time he wanted to be a gentleman farmer in a ramshackle house deep in the mountains of West Virginia.

  • Flight Memory

    Flight Memory

    “They’ll always be there. And you can swim to them any time you need to.”

    With Flight Memory, French artist Noé Grenier focuses on false memories and mental dismantling. The project is entirely composed of black and white blow-ups of a 35mm trailer for Robert Schwentke’s movie Flightplan. What once was an advertisement for a Hollywood production is transformed, fragmented, deprived of its colors and given new rhythms and tones in order to bathe the viewer in a world of Markerian reminiscences.

    Bruce Takes Dragon Town

    “I thought I would find you on Dihua Street, where there have been 35mm screenings for the ghosts.”

    A hypnotic film shot in Taiwan during Ghost Month, Emily Chao’s Bruce Takes Dragon Town depicts cinema as the ultimate summoner of souls. An old VHS, empty streets, open-air film screenings for wandering ghosts, and the astounding exploration of the abandoned Futuro Village at Wanli.

  • Tobacco Barns Light Studies

    Tobacco Barns Light Studies

    Short and silent documentary film, presented in an almost lavender-toned black and white; a study of the abstraction created by the light passing through the barns’ cracks.
