A double screen video & sound installation by Radiomentale

Residency period: April- May 2009

Live cinema event: Koyaanisquatsi, Kinodvor, May 2009

Exhibition: Sonica: Post, June 2009

Short description 
The installation created a ghostly, surreal, narrative and poetic sound & visual environment, using images mainly taken from silent films from the 30’s and surrealist films from the 20’s (« Sunrise » & « Faust » by Murnau, « The Fall of the Usher House » by Jean Epstein…). Forgotten faces from the past, faces from dead actors and sometimes dead musicians, who seem to communicate beyond space and time, appear in this kind of meta movie.

As usual in our work, the soundtrack would be a collage drawing on an eclectic range of audio sources, including our own electronic ambient compositions, field recordings (here a few seconds of a Philip Glass piece played during a piano concert held in the Galeria in Ljubjana) sound experiments & natural sounds. As usual, the idea is to create, here with film and sound, a very dreamy and immersive space, where fragments of fiction, echoes of forgotten melodies, parts of our common cultural memories (here, cinema) and textured sounds create an effect of a broken narrative work, which has a powerful effect on the perception and imagination of the listener.

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA –

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA is a multidisciplinary platform dedicated to advancing the research, production and presentation of transitory, experimental, and live art forms.

MoTA is a museum without a permanent collection or a fixed space. Instead, its programs are realised in different locations and contexts in temporary physical and virtual spaces.

MoTA organizes and supports transitory art in the form of continuous events, exhibitions and educational programs both locally and internationally. As its name indicates, MoTA examines what a museum can be today and in the future.

MoTA is in constant search for the new, the uncertain, and the undefined.

MoTA works on several continuous programmes & projects. We run MoTA Point – a Space for Art & Ideas, we curate and produce the annual SONICA Festival, in addition to regular music programmes such as SONICA Series and SONICA Classics.

Within the years of running our residency programme, we’ve established T.R.I.B.E. – a network of residency spaces in the Balkans & Eastern Europe.

We’ve also initiated the research and archive platforms ArtistTalk.eu and Mediateque MoTA & Tomaž Brate. Our educational programmes serve a broader audience with ongoing workshops, talks, symposia, and internships.
