APOTROPIA Sense of Place, 2015

APOTROPIA Echoes of a Forgotten Embrace, 2016

Directors Lounge presents works by APOTROPIA | Contemporary Art Ruhr, June 3-5, 2016

APOTROPIA is a duo based in Rome, Italy, consisting of dancer/media artist Antonella Mignone and artist/composer Cristiano Panepuccia. Their work explores the interconnections between performing arts and all forms of audiovisual expressions.

Sense of Place, 2015
The term “sense of place” may describe both an arrangement of features that makes a place unique and the sensation and perception of place as experienced by the living bodies that belong to it.

The body is our general medium for having a world and our relationship to space is inevitably connected with culture and shaped by the kind of bodies we have.

Echoes of a Forgotten Embrace, 2016
Echoes of a Forgotten Embrace
takes inspiration from the concept of emotional memory, depicting the encounter of two lovers in a liminal dimension, a place where movements preserve the memory of the past and create a synthesis of the entire action.
The work has been created with a mix of body projection, light painting, real time randomization and animation techniques.

Echoes of a Forgotten Embrace and Sense of Place are both chapters that constitute DROP , a project divided into several autonomous works focusing on the dialectical relationship between the concept of Infinity and Control as a fundamental issue of human nature.

MONOMULTICHROMALICIOUS!

“Divine” Krumins and “Glorious” Maddin: Directors Lounge supported by twin columns of surrealistic religiosity at  Contemporary Art Ruhr
30 October – 1 November 2015

Representing nearly 20 million square kilometres of North American film art breeding ground, Daina Krumins (USA) and Guy Maddin (Canada) have managed to burn feverish holes into the international psyche lying beyond. Already in 1972, Krumins’ “The Divine Miracle” was pitching its silver screen magic carpet ride of saturated colours and religious iconography. Maddin squeezed the devil out of, and the life into, his black and white “Glorious” in 2008, leaving enough for any confessional longing. Here is a yin/yang of image masters, mutually repelling/embracing opposites born of a single visionary cell. Directors Lounge presents a liberal smattering of these two top-shelfers at contempary art ruhr, better known simply as C.A.R. No reason not to be there…
