PAPAY GYRO NIGHTS ART FESTIVAL 2013 HK
5-18th April

1- Richard Jochum (US) – Twenty Angry Dogs – 1’
Group Bark looks like a family portrait, but actually shows people barking like angry dogs. The one-minute video is the single channel appendix to the sound and video installation ”Twenty Angry Dogs”, a project in which I had 20 people bark individually in front of a camera.

2- Barcellona Federica (IT) – Volo Nero – 6’08’’
Inspired and dedicated to the poetic force of women in black (in 1988 in a square of Jerusalem by the meeting of seven Israeli women who stay silently for an hour every Friday with signs that say ”STOP THE OCCUPATION” to the Israeli Government’s military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, borns a wave that propagates into other twenty-four cities including Tel Aviv, Haifa, London, Amsterdam, New York, Rome. The movement of DiN (women in black) becomes the symbol, the stimulus for the establishment of women’s groups in different parts of the world that feature this desire to build peace, embracing the expression of their methodology: present in body and soul dressed in black, silent impose themselves and confront the looks of the people. The art of communicating in silent.

3- Cat Del Buono (US) – Now I’m Beautiful! – 1’31’’
In “Now Iʼm Beautiful!” my performance aims to accentuate the absurdity of women conforming to an arbitrary idea of beauty.

4- Gilivanka Kedzior & Barbara Friedman (FR) – Double Bind – 4’10’’
This is the video of a performance done on July 20th 2010 in Toulouse, France. This is a reflection on the strength and the pain of the tie between two individuals.
