For the 5th year, the OVNi festival confirms its commitment to promoting video art and moving images.
The Heart for Heart Program is proud to be part of the festival via OVNi en Ville.
Actors of contemporary art, we will revisit our exhibitions through the medium of video. We will also intervene during the event outside the gallery.
Presentation of the exhibition “Identités plurielles”
Two artists will broadcast their work :
– Reynier Leyva Novo : in his work “Cancion de Ultramar/Overseas Song/Chanson d’Outremer”, he suggests the disproportion between the ever-monumental political aspirations of the Cuban state and its political aspirations. Transnational gesture that overturns the limits of the concept of “Nation”.
– Wolfe Von Lenkiewicz : known for his re-appropriation of iconic images, from the Mona Lisa to Guernica, he created this new series of hybrids, “Typhon : un hybride post moderne”, during his residency last summer, inspired by our beautiful region.
Opening of the gallery between November 22nd and December 1st : 10h-14h
OVNi en Ville, presentation of the movie “A Moon for my Father”
Mania Akbari collaborates with British sculptor Douglas White to create a film about an intimate artistic and personal relationship exploring the nature of skin, family, death, desire and a powerful desire to form.
Mania Akbari examines the connection between her body and the political history of Iran, the relationship between her physical trauma and the collective political memory of her home country. While undergoing surgery on a body decimated by cancer, memory and reconstruction provide a framework for investigating how bodies are traumatized, censored and politicized, while ultimately remaining a space of opportunity
