Silke Schmickl and Stéphane Gérard present "Human Frames" at The Substation
Presented by Silke Schmickl and Stéphane Gérard, founders of Lowave, a French artistic company which promotes experiemental cinema and contemporary art video to make them more accesible outside galleries and festivals, "Human Frames" presents a series of ten film programmes examining the human condition through experimental film and video art. Comprising both contemporary and archive images from across Asia and Europe, this project is inspired by the ancient theory of humoralism as a framework for analysing certain aspects of the human character.
Focusing on ten emotional states – happiness, desire, madness, fanaticism, fear, anger, isolation, melancholia, mono no aware, impermanence – it depicts the timeless and universal panoply of human tempers that lay beyond national, social and cultural affiliations. There will be video projections and films from artists around the world, namely Gerard Cairaschi and Marylène Negro from France, Halida Boughriet from France/Algeria, Triny Prada from France/ Colombia and Chris Gozum, Tzu Nyen Ho, Ezzam Rahman, Machima Ungsriwong from Singapore.
Dates : Thursday 17 February - Friday 18 February, 8 pm to 10 pm
Saturday 19 February - Sunday 20 February, 2 pm to 8 pm
Venue : The Substation
