• The Biennal
The Biennal of Curitiba 2017 is entitled “Antipodes – Excess image” and it intends to show the “Diversity” or “the Opposites “, topics for consideration of this edition, they represent “not just a limit among the means of artistic expression but even a limit among cultures. Limits that are never definitive, where outward and return, plural meetings and sinergies created by the comparison of different, distant points of view, even against the others meet. According to Deleuze: transversality realizes unifying the differences” (quote Ticio Escobar).
On the occasion of this event Massimo Scaringella will curate the video selection entitled: VISÃO EXPANDIDA (EXPANDED VISION) where he has selectioned a wide range of artists using the video as an expression mean in provided rooms of MON – Museo Oscar Niemeyer and in the Memorial of Curitiba.
The cornerstone of our time is the dynamic dimension of the rapid exchange between art and science, continually updating the output in humanity’s most cherished asset: information. The visual trend in the third millennium is conveyed through an action in arts and aesthetics aimed at continued update, which becomes essential for following the rapid pace of contemporary formal changes. In this sense, Video is certainly one of the most thorough media in current art language. Video art has become one of the major languages in contemporary expression, as the urge has grown among artists to “go beyond the painting field” without giving up the visual specificities. The possible articulations of the new medium are capable of involving presence and continuity of the time dimension and of transcending mere space in the analysis of reality. It does so by mixing at the same time painting, photography and film. And, lately, with the introduction of “augmented reality” or 3D, we can already talk about the “third dimension” in video art, as in sculpture. This video exhibition offers, therefore, a conceptual analysis of these expanded views present in our time, showing some linguistic and technical aspects of video as an art medium today.
