“non-syntax Experimental Image Festival” begins by focusing on the experimental nature of images in the contemporary, linking practices across countries, reorganizing existing media and genres, and bringing different images into dialogue with each other to consider the possibilities of the image.
The exhibition of this year, entitled “assemblage”, aims to unfold a process from separation to composition. Through the assemblage of works, the discussion of issues, and the mixing of genres and groups, the diversity of contemporary images are mapped out.
We hope to transgress the established boundary of creation, thereby dissolving the distinction between video art, film, documentary, performance, and animation, thus giving images a new potential for ambiguity. Through the alternative screening forms and space installation, the meaning of the “assemblage” also implies a continuous reassemblage, we expect to break the spectatorship which consists of stare and stopover, and to synchronize our own state of sensibility in the interaction with the works, the audience, and the exhibition space. The festival will be held at Roof Light in Taipei in June, exhibiting works from around the world.
We accept any genre of work i.e video art, experimental film, documentary, performance, and animation that refers to the experimental idea.
