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.
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.
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.
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.
The Arrival (2013) by Solimán López [Spain] is an allegorical piece working with our collective relationship to communications technology.
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 (2011) by Santiago Parres aka EZO [Spain] is a review and appropriation of a classic Spanish song.
ANXIETY (2013) by Elliot Storey [NY] plays with dancers, sculpture, and architecture to illustrate the emotional state.
