La moderna videopoesia trova riscontro nella poesia iniziata nell’antichità come forma orale, ora nelle nuove tecnologie.

— Marie Craven

english

IN ABSENTIA is keeping on fostering screenings at the Cineporto in Foggia. In collaboration with Est-Ovest Danza, Stigmamente and Parole Contrarie, the art collective Semiosphera promotes meetings and side-events to The Wrong Biennial Digital Art. With the presence of Luigi Starace, the French filmmaker Jean-Patrick Sablot will be commenting at the screening.
We decided to promote events on the sidelines of the official selections of the Biennale, to facilitate the exchange of good practices among artists – says Francesca Giuliani — and with a good dose of curiosity we welcomed the proposals from other curators. The video poetry selected by Marie Craven does not points at the astonishment in technology, but rather declines its poetics in the silence of the voiceovers.
Our curiosity started from an “England” engraved on a wall of an abandoned military hospital on the Varano lake — continues Lino Mocerino — wondering who had been writing it in the days of his stay. Where did he come from? And so the Genius loci led us to the emotions of those who, after more than seventy years, speak the language of otherness.

Continuano gli incontri di IN ABSENTIA al Cineporto di Foggia. In collaborazione con Est-Ovest Danza, Stigmamente e Parole Contrarie, il collettivo artistico Semiosphera promuove incontri e presentazioni nell’ambito della Biennale d’Arte Digitale The Wrong. Alla proiezione interverrà il cineasta francese Jean-Patrick Sablot, con la presenza di Luigi Starace.
Abbiamo deciso di promuovere eventi a margine delle selezioni ufficiali della Biennale, per facilitare lo scambio di buone pratiche tra gli artisti — sostiene Francesca Giuliani — e con una buona dose di curiosità abbiamo accolto le proposte da altri curatori. La videopoesia selezionata da Marie Craven non cerca lo stupore nella tecnologia, ma ne declina la poetica nei silenzio delle voci fuori campo. La nostra curiosità è partita da un “England” inciso su una parete di un ospedale militare abbandonato sulle rive del Varano — continua Lino Mocerino — e ci siamo chiesti chi fosse stato a scriverla nei giorni della sua degenza. Da dove proveniva? E così il Genius loci ci ha condotti alle emozioni di chi, a distanza di più di settant’anni, parla la lingua dell’altro da sé.


This year The Wrong welcomes works by Bill Viola, Wolf Vostell and Nam Jun Paik, historical names in video art — says the french filmmaker Jean-Patrick Sablot who will introduce the screening — and this should put curiosity on the quality of a festival that, between innovation and tradition, succeeds in to restart the logos of a middle ground that has become an interstice.
Poetry + Video — concludes curator Marie Craven — is a traveling program of short films from all over the world, a one-hour collection that examines the contemporary canons of this form of communication, expanding its language in its declinations.
Something to look-and-feel.

Quest’anno The Wrong accoglie lavori di Bill Viola, Wolf Vostell e Nam Jun Paik, nomi storici della videoarte — sostiene il cineasta francese Jean-Patrick Sablot che introdurrà i lavori — e solo questo dovrebbe mettere curiosità sulla qualità di un festival che tra innovazione e tradizione, riesce a rimettere in moto il logos di una terra di mezzo divenuta interstizio.
Poetry + Video — conclude la curatrice Marie Craven — è un programma itinerante di cotrometraggi da tutto il mondo, una collezione di un’ora che esamina i canoni contemporanei di questa forma di comunicazione, ampliandone il linguaggio nelle sue declinazioni.
Da vedere e da sentire.
