LET OP! Alle activiteiten worden uitgesteld vanaf 13.03.


TUESDAY, MARCH 17, 20:00
OFFoff art cinema presents:

Fiona Tan - Koninkrijk der schaduwen

NL - 2000 - 50' - colour & b/w - digital

Attention! We welcome filmmaker and visual artist Fiona Tan in OFFoff on Tuesday March 17th, and not as usual on Monday.

“Thou shalt not make graven images nor worship them.” This (protestant) second commandment is the point of departure for Fiona Tan to scrutinize our complex thoughts and feeling towards the ceaseless stream of pictures, which fill life and memory. By means of an associative collage Tan explores her own personal vision on how memory and imagination are intertwined in today’s society, and how the act of looking in itself contains the process of creation, not in the least the construction of our own (cultural) identity. In Kingdom of Shadows four different characters present their most beloved pictures: a collector in Amsterdam, a cinematographer who collects amateur photos in Boedapest, a retired press photographer in Hamburg and an artist in New York. The pictures they show us are humorous, endearing and heartbreaking.

In her practice, which covers films, installations, video and photographic material, Fiona Tan makes use of images in the broadest sense of the word. Her work incorporates archival material as well as original images, which can be still or moving, resulting in both a fictional and a documentary reality, sometimes in a special combination, sometimes strictly separated from each other.

This evening is organized in collaboration with LUCA School of Arts, 'De Filmavonden'.

Tickets at the box office: 8 euro / 5 euro (reduction)
