FACE FESTIVAL Festival of Art Creativity Ecoculture

Catona - Ecolandia, Reggio Calabria (Italy)
1/7 August 2009

Visualcontainer has been invited to present a special selection relevant to Italian Artists at FaceFestival.

The Exhibition take place in Catona, Reggio calabria and is organized by a video screening compilation and a video installation project of Francesco Arena, BREATH. 2008

Video Installation of 4/23 videos

For the RESPIRI/BREATHS project, the artist has produced a series of 23 videos from 2004 till 2008: each of them is interpreted by a different male or female character, under the wish of expressing two-colour obsessions of faces breathing behind a glass, often brought out to constrained but touching emotional feelings. Each video has been interpreted by 23 international musicians from different areas, who have composed brand new sound tracks for the occasion.

a video by Patrizia Monzani based on a poem by Annelisa Addolorato, 2009

If in poetry language is used for its aesthetic and evocative qualities in addition to its apparent meaning, in this video a simple slow zoom is the gesture bringing to the real meaning. Removing any effect or editing, and taking advantage of simplicity is here the way to achieve the inner of reality.
