AN EVENING OF MOVING IMAGE AND IDEAS
TOUCH - MATTER - MEMORY
Curated by Tereza Stehlikova www.terezast.com
"The idea behind this salon is to approach moving image from the perspective of its physical attributes, literally through exploring the 'language of matter'. Based on Jan Svankmajer’s idea of physical objects being accumulators of memories through their contact with the world, I have invited a number of artists from different disciplines to show some of the particular ways in which they draw stories from matter, be it through the power of language, narrative, sound, touch, movement, or various intriguing combinations of these."
