Live Streaming Night
Crossed Timelines


https://www.facebook.com/events/264403918028317/
10.05PM CEST

Curated by Nawal Benali.

The screening includes works by Robert Todd, Zachary Zezima, Jodie Mack, Louise Hémon&Halima Ouardiri, François Vogel&Stéphane Lavoix, Kangmin Kim, Shambhavi Kaul, Barbara Meter, Collectif Babouckha.



United by the experimental content they bring to the table, these change makers steer themselves according to the free interpretation they inspire in the eyes they prepare. If their aesthetic differs, they’ve still got the invitation for the journey in common. It’s not just about invoking the first and physical meaning of this movement, but rather letting yourself be guided by the call to the intrinsic feelings when each of us lets go.

These extracts from stories real or imagined, from various times and influences, beg the idea of overriding our buried memories and beliefs. The legends, the romances, and even the mundane take on a dimension of exploration. Nothing is fixed in time and space when dreams scatter our thoughts. “Crossed Timelines” could be the filmic interpretation of the quote by Alexandre Poussin, “Traveling, it’s giving your life meaning, travelling, it’s giving life to your senses.”
