  • Christoph Girardet & Matthias Müller - Tell Me What You See

    By on

    Christoph Girardet and Matthias Müller predominately make use of found footage in their films which they combine to produce new works. Their dealings with the media of film come together in intense combinations of images and film collages that unfold new layers of meaning.

    Locomotive from 2008, a fast-moving video triptych comprising scene showing railway trains taken from hundreds of movies, came about in this manner. Departure and arrival, endings and new beginnings, exoticism and the thrill of adventure interlock are condensed into an exciting new narrative.

    Meteor from 2011 is a filmic metaphor for childhood desire and imagination. Assembled from movies, uprooted fragments from fairy tales and old science fiction material, Meteor stages the imaginary world of the child at the threshold of self-discovery and disentanglement. Black and white excerpts of aggressive, fearful or languorous boys from films by Jean Vigo, Ingmar Bergman or François Truffaut merge with glowingly colorful images of rockets speeding through outer space or cosmic objects from the genre of science fiction.

  • European Expanded Cinema

    By on

    Expanded cinema represents an intersection of hybrid and performative audiovisual practices that have met a reupdate after the 2000s in the field of contemporary art and experimental cinema. The History and Aesthethics of Cinema Section at the University of Lausanne and the research project HES-SO Cinema exposé at ECAL organize at the Sputnik Cinema (Geneva), 27 September 2013, a study day and evening performance on these artistic manifestations. The expanded cinema is at the intersection of the areas of independent film, performance, experimental music, contemporary dance, poetry and visual art installation, while deploying in places the mass culture.

    With the occasion of this study day, there will be an opportunity to trace the expanded cinema performances that are deployed in Europe and regroup on a theoretical plan the visual and hearing devices mobilized by these expanded artistic practice, taking as case studies in Switzerland, Italy, France and Britain. We thus separate from current studies on this phenomenon, which mainly focus on the American scene. The challenge is to confront theoretical issues in artistic practices, crossing lectures by academics, curators and artists in live performances with film.
