(Sur)real Colors

In early cinema the colors were applied on to the already developed black&white film strip. The colors are meant to embellish the image or to add drama (for ex. the image turns red when there is a fire). However there is another dimension to the early color techniques; the colors are present as a chemical layer on the film surface. When they decay over time, new unexpected versions might arise.

Accompanied with the performance of silent movie musician Stephen Horne and presentation by Mariann Lewinsky, following films from Eye Filmmuseum’s collection will be screening:

Danse Serpentine
La Caduta Di Troia
Mein Name Ist Spiesecke

“A nameless Egyptian fresco, an African idol or a vase from Crete: we should behold Pirosmani’s art among them. Only this way it is possible to conceive it genuinely … …You see Pirosmani – you believe in Georgia”.

Transition to Sculpture

Transition to Sculpture

If Manolo Valdés’s paintings convey a search for materiality, his sculpture does so even more. Today, sculpture has taken over most of his workspace, his time, and his efforts.
