Xcèntric: Antoni Pinent - Experimental sketches

By on


No votes yet

Set in the field of experimental cinema, the films of Antoni Pinent are a kind of reflection on the cinematographic medium, where the material aspects of moving images form the content. Over the years, he has developed a very particular camera-less cinema, working directly on the support and fragmenting its smallest unit, the still, in a technique he calls “polyframe”, which he has used to make his latest films. This task of décollage using filmic materiality and presenting the film as something concrete that you can work on with your hands is a reference to the cinema of attractions, that powerful visual experience packed with punches, shocks and humour of early film. This session will present some of his works in a dialogue with others by Volker Schreiner, Christoph Girardet and Matthias Müller, Morgan Fisher, David Matarasso and Peter Tscherkassky; some have been an important influence, others introduce concepts to reflect on his work.
