an exhibition in tranzitdisplay
The exhibition is a part of the CINEPUR Choice festival. It draws attention to how artists work with motion pictures and also what happens to a film when it is screened in a gallery.
Special emphasis is placed on the film’s language and its limits. The various artists examine the area at the festival – an area we could call the ontology of a motion picture. They test the ways by which film or video records movement, time or the form of things. Of particular interest to them is an analysis of the conventions of cinematography, paradoxes of feature film or the economic substance of the film industry.
Multikino will take the form of a two-month exhibition at tranzitdisplay where it will feature individual and mixed screenings (film screenings, video projections, television monitor, display) in specially designed spaces. Some of the artists involved in the exhibition will be presented for a short time in Brno and Olomouc in the form of a giant-screen single-channel projection.
