Friday 5 October at 7 p.m., discussion with Pilvi Takala and Silke Opitz, at 8 p.m., the opening.
For the fourth edition of the Short Video Biennial -5 Minutes we have collaborated with German art historian and curator Silke Opitz, who proposed the theme Into the Real World.
After reviewing the 39 video works that were submitted to the international open call in May and July 2012 the expert jury consisting of Silke Opitz, Jaka Železnikar, and Polonca Lovšin selected two works for presentation: the video Utopia by artist Wanja Kimani and the video Waiting Panorama by tandem Tina Helen and Søren Thilo Funder.
This year’s biennial is connected to the artworks of Finnish artist Pilvi Takala. Her video works and installations are presented in the accompanying solo exhibition Aside. The common characteristic of the video works in the biennial as well as those in the accompanying exhibition is the thin line between reality and fiction.
