Led by artist and CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo Office Manager Guy Bernard Reichmann, alongside artists and Content Managers Mona Benyamin and Esraa Abed, “out-of-office” is a series of events to be presented in the Marc Schimmel Multipurpose Gallery. Focused on time-based practices such as video, dance, and performance, and in line with the multidisciplinary mission of the Center, “o-o-o” was conceived as a way to nurture the domestic scene.
The latest event of this series is “SELECTION OF VIDEO ART #3” – the third iteration of the nomadic screenings curated by sweetransfer (Yoel Peled and Schahar Mizrahi). The screening will feature works by Guy Ben-Ner, Uri Katzenstein, Mark Leckey, Roy Menachem Markovich, Shay-Lee Uziel, and Ana Wild created in the last decade, and based on associations and dissociations between sound and image. Nevertheless, each work has its unique approach: some direct the viewer’s attention to the ‘backstage’ of the creative process, revealing that the relationship between sound and image is not intrinsic; others replace either the soundtrack or the images with a foreign source, thus creating “ostranenie” – the term for defamiliarization introduced by Russian writer and critic Viktor Shklovsky, which means, among other things, to see in strangeness; last but not least, other works employ the technique of looping in order to create ritualistic mantras via repetition.
The sequence of videos will be screened twice, at 8:00 and 9:00pm; at the end of each sequence, a short conversation with some of the participating artists will be held.
Duration: 50 mins (each)
