AES + F - Turandot 2070

Thursday 16 September at 21:00
Terrace - Palazzo dei Congressi


During the first day of the program the
AES + F, great exponents of world video art, former animators of the Russian pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale of Art, will present Turandot 2070, in a site-specific re-adaptation conceived specifically to enhance the colossal facade of the Palazzo dei Congressi.

On the occasion of the first day dedicated to Videoart they will talk to us about their works and their artistic research. 
The meeting will be moderated by Davide Giannella, independent curator. He has worked for public institutions such as the Milan Triennale, the Marino Marini Museum, the PAC in Milan or for private galleries and independent spaces. 


In the work
Turandot 2070,  Beijing is depicted as a futuristic metropolis, where elements of traditional oriental architecture coexist with hyper-technological buildings within an artificial landscape. Its inhabitants are clearly the co-stars from the very beginning of the show.


The Russian AES + F collective works with photography, film and digital animation. Surreal projections, dystopian futures, AES + F constructs a dramatic narrative that recalls both the simulated violence of video games and the glamor of high fashion photography, as their subjects pierce each other with arrows, beat each other with golf clubs .

VIDEOART REVIEW

Friday 17 September at 21:30
Terrace - Palazzo dei Congressi

 

The second day of the video art section program includes works by international and Italian artists who work with CGI and in general with different types of digital animation but who touch sensitive issues on the planet and the future of people and technology. The gaze of these artists focuses on the way in which bodies and technology are interconnected, particularly in relation to digital communication.

 

They reflect on the ways in which technologies are designed to facilitate the connection between people paradoxically underline their separation. The future of the planet imagined with dystopian images with visions of different timbre from the grotesque, to the posthuman, to the nostalgic vintage of a world that has disappeared. Now digital worlds and philosophical reflections on the future of humanity.

 

Artists
Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg, Andy Holden, Markus Vater, VIDEO ALTERATIONS, Jon Rafman, Hans Op De Beeck, Giulio Scalisi, Run Wrake, Levi van Veluw, Lu Yang
