DINSDAG 17 MAART, 20:00
OFFoff art cinema presenteert:

Fiona Tan — Koninkrijk der schaduwen

NL • 2000 • 50' • kleur & z/w • digitaal

Opgelet! We verwelkomen filmmaker en visueel kunstenaar Fiona Tan in OFFoff op dinsdag 17 maart, en niet zoals traditioneel op maandag.

“Gij zult geen gesneden beelden maken of aanbidden.” Koninkrijk der schaduwen neemt dit religieuze beeldverbod als uitgangspunt om onze complexe omgang met de onophoudelijke beeldenstroom te onderzoeken. Doorheen een associatieve collage ontvouwt Tan haar persoonlijke visie op hoe geheugen en verbeelding vandaag in elkaar grijpen, en hoe de act van het kijken ook steeds creatie inhoudt, niet in het minst van onze (culturele) identiteit. In Koninkrijk der schaduwen tonen vier personages ons hun meest dierbare foto’s: een verzamelaar in Amsterdam, een cinematograaf die amateurfoto’s verzamelt in Boedapest, een gepensioneerde persfotograaf in Hamburg en een kunstenaar in New York. De foto’s die ze laten zien zijn humoristisch, vertederend en hartverscheurend.

In haar praktijk, die zich uitstrekt over films, installaties, video- en fotomateriaal, maakt Fiona Tan gebruik van beelden in de meest brede zin van het woord. Haar werk incorporeert zowel archiefmateriaal als originele beelden, die stilstaand of bewegend kunnen zijn en evengoed een fictieve als een documentaire realiteit tot resultaat hebben, nu eens in een bijzondere combinatie, dan weer strikt van elkaar gescheiden.

Deze avond wordt georganiseerd i.s.m LUCA School of Arts, De Film­avonden.

Tickets aan de kassa: 8 euro / 5 euro (reductie)
