20:00–23:00 Cinémathèque de la Ville de Luxembourg Conferences

Cinématière : l'art contemporain et le cinéma (part I)

Cycle of conferences organised in collaboration with the University of Luxembourg
"Contemporary Art in Flux: Artistic and Social Explorations and Questionings"

Il n'est pas rare de croiser des fragments de cinéma au détour d'une exposition, révélant peut-être une nouvelle matière pour les artistes contemporains. Comment éclairer une telle circulation des images ? Quelles relations artistiques se tissent dans et à travers les œuvres, de Marcel Duchamp à Douglas Gordon, en passant par Alfred Hitchcock, Pierre Huyghe et Peter Tscherkassky ? C’est la question traitée et illustrée par cette conférence, suivie de deux films phares : le Psycho signé Van Sant et l’exceptionnelle vidéo posthume de Kiarostami, 24 Frames.

"Mostly, the images come from nature: we see birds, horses and other animals, in settings that range from seascapes to snowy mountainsides to quiet windowsills. The fact that there’s no usual storyline or characters, however, doesn’t mean there’s no narrative energy or appeal: each little movie seems to have its own dramatic arc, and part of the fun of watching it lies in seeing how each of these unfolds. (...) In 24 Frames, this multi-faceted, extraordinarily protean creator gives us his imagination unfettered by either the technology of film or the givens of nature. In doing so, as so often before, he respects and leaves space for the viewer’s own imagination." (Godfrey Cheshire, Roger Ebert)

Conference in French language, silent film screening
