Moving_Image_00:00 is proud to present its 6th screening showcasing moving image works by Chicago artists, guest curated by Kioto Aoki alongside Directors Santina Amato and Sarah Skaggs. Moving_Image_00:06 will screen on October 27th at DfbrL8r.
A word from Guest Curator Kioto Aoki:
Moving_Image_00:06 begins with remnants of the past. Of a seemingly faraway, quaint yet desolate memories of spaces often called home. The persistent imagery of the home gives way to formal inquiries of pattern and movement defined by color and texture. Rotating patterns illuminate pulsating heartbeats. Physiology develops quickly into philosophy to illuminate a slower speed of light. Time slows down and words travel up and are caught on bodies. The gesture continues to be dragged through garden plants and ends in the night.
The films in this program tangentially acknowledge traditions of structuralist film to contemplate what it means to inhabit a space. Space can be physical, mental, emotional, or structural. Through various avenues of linguistics, nostalgia, philosophy, materiality, and physiology, the works accentuate the poetics of quietude to provide respite from the fast-paced nature of the world we live in today. And to share the creative community of Chicago’s moving image-makers in the same time-space.
