Video remakes, series, ancestor films and tv-shows

Curated by: Blue Noses (Viacheslav Mizin, Alexander Shaburov)

10 June - 31 July, 2010.

"The new technologies have enabled many people — even those no good at actual painting or sculpting — to succeed as artists.

Very soon it turned out that they are also no good at working with video camera. So video-artists first of all followed the track of film-industry pioneers in order to learn the elements of profession. Often unaware of it, they re-discovered methods of early silent films — short format, high-motion shooting, double exposure, tricks with camera switching-out invented by Geprges Méliès, etc.

Then — sometimes without meaning it — video-artists started to compete with media reality, recasting the images of music video, popular TV-series, advertisements, porno films or typical Hollywood blockbusters. The latter ones — in pursuit of stable success with the public — also tend to overdo sequels and repeats.

Our exhibition project puts together the whole history of relationship between video and cinema — from the re-invention of silents’ formal techniques to the remakes of cult movies. Oddly enough, among the helpless opuses under the disguise of video-art one can sometimes find really talented works. Authors of those are our friends – Russian video artists." (Blue Noses).
