MIA is pleased to present Imaginal Fiction, a diverse selection of eight recent artists’ videos linked by a style of story telling that is akin to the process of active imagination. Each video uses enigmatic imagery and an oblique approach to create new, emotionally communicative mythologies.

VD_02 72p copie copie Ved’ma (2012) by Cornelia Eichhorn [France] is a 3-channel installation which follows three women simultaneously as they experience wildly dream-like situations rooted in Russian fairy-tales.

NA_Native American Native American (2012) by Giulia Grossmann [France] hovers on the edge between art film and documentary, following the inhabitants of a French resort where guests dress and behave as if they were living in the fabled American West.

chikaroot 21 Chitrakoot (2012) by Shambhavi Kaul [NC] is a landscape film which uses backdrops pulled from a mythological Indian television series to trace a narrative.

theArrival_2 The Arrival (2013) by Solimán López [Spain] is an allegorical piece working with our collective relationship to communications technology.

choir_84 The choir (2013) by Marcantonio Lunardi [Italy] features a group of choral singers who perform in a church with monitors over their faces which simultaneously broadcast images of their own heads singing the same piece.

dove Dove (2011) by Santiago Parres aka EZO [Spain] is a review and appropriation of a classic Spanish song.

AN_1b ANXIETY (2013) by Elliot Storey [NY] plays with dancers, sculpture, and architecture to illustrate the emotional state.

Hunter-Hunted_single-channel_still_01 Hunter/Hunted (2012) by WE (Kye Wilson and Helena Eflerová)[UK] is a two-channel installation, which follows the performance of Eflerová as both the huntress and the prey.
