AUDITOIRE DU BÂTIMENT D’ART CONTEMPORAIN & OTHER PLACES – HEAD GENEVA’S INAUGURAL WEEK AT BIM 2014

The HEAD and its departments of Visual Arts and Cinema conceive their inaugural week around the BIM 2014 (15 – 21 September). The school, its professors and students are actively involved in the Biennale through a series of screenings, conversations with artists, specific activities conceived by the HEAD's professors... The inaugural week is divided into 3 separate programs with activities running simultaneously in the different venues of the Biennale during the HEAD's inaugural week and the opening of the BIM 2014.

FONDATION ARDITI’S AUDITORIUM – « L’EXPOSITION D'UN FILM» – A FILM BY MATHIEU COPELAND

Taking its construct both within the reality of a film and its medium, The Exhibition of a Film (L'Exposition d'un film) envisages through a polyphony of sound and images the possible textures offered by the cinematic environment. The time of the film stems from the spatial ad-equation of a projected image and of a sound heard. The film's spatialization defines its different textures, and thus creates an exhibition both to be seen and listened to, in other words, a cinematic experience. An exhibition for a context, namely a film screened in a cinema, which is as much an exhibited film as the film of an exhibition or a filmed exhibition.

Working within its own abstraction, this exhibition as a feature film plays with the spatialization of sound, and its polyphony in space. It envisages the unicity of the image and its possible fragmentation on the screen. This exhibition considers its structure as its material, and is constructed by the alternating and confronting of abstract elements and/or filmed scenes. The Exhibition of a Film aims at being something other than a structuralist 'epic', or a suite of artist's short films one after the other. Instead, each layer is constitutive of the whole, becoming a potential field of action.

The Exhibition of a Film (L'Exposition d'un film) features, among others, Mac Adams, Fia Backström, Robert Barry, Erica Baum, Madeleine Botet de Lacaze, Stuart Brisley, Jonathan Burrows, Brad Butler & Karen Mirza, Nick Cave, David Cunningham, Philippe Decrauzat, Peter Downsbrough, Maria Eichhorn, F.M. Einheit, Tim Etchells, Alexandre Estrella, Cerith Wyn Evans, John Giorno, Sam Gleaves, Kenneth Goldsmith, Myriam Gourfink, Philippe Grandrieux, Karl Holmqvist, Marie-Caroline Hominal, Vlatka Horvat, Myriam Lefkowitz, Franck Leibovici, Benoit Maire, Charles de Meaux, Ieva Misevičiūtė, Meredith Monk, Charlotte Moth, Phill Niblock, Jim O'Rourke, Deborah Pearson, Vanessa Place, Michael Portnoy, Lee Ranaldo, Laetitia Sadier, Laurent Schmid, Leah Singer, Mieko Shiomi, Susan Stenger, Sofia Diaz + Vitor Roriz, Kasper T. Toeplitz, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Daniel Turner, Alan Vega, Lawrence Weiner...

A production of the HEAD – Genève, with the support of the Fonds stratégique HES-SO

19th September, 20:30 Première with the artists

LiveInYourHead – « 6 – 4 – 2 »

Based on the relation between projected images and sound, 6 – 4 – 2 is conceived as a two part project: it opens with an intense series of talks, performances and screenings – offering every day, during 6 hours, a different event – ; it will then be remodelled into a 4-week exhibition.

Between light installation, futuristic scene and dark room, the project is freely inspired by the Space Theater experience, a space imagined by a collective of composers and artists at the end of the 1950s - the ONCE GROUP - to host new forms of electronic music and interdisciplinary performances. In dialogue with an installation by artists Ceel Mogami de Haas et Vianney Fivel, the works by over 20 international artists is apprehended as multiple experiences between internal visions and time, mental maps and digital creations. A tribute to the artist and composer Robert Ashley (1930-2014), imagined by Quinn Latimer, a writer and critic, and Vincent de Roguin, a musician, artist and student at the HEAD-Genève is closing the program.

With Danai Anesiadou, Lars Bang Larsen, Stuart Bailey, Catherine Chevalier, Marie-Antoinette Chiarenza, Mathieu Copeland, Marie de Brugerolle, Vincent de Roguin, Chloé Delarue, Tobias Kaspar, Christophe Kihm, Quentin Lannes, Quinn Latimer, Charlotte Laubard, Pierre Leguillon, Jelena Martinovic, Lou Masduraud, Uriel Orlow, Mai-Thu Perret, Aurélie Pétrel, Lili Reynaud Dewar, Laurent Schmid & LapTopRadio, Ingrid Wildi, David Zerbib.
