The new technologies have enabled many people — even those no good at actual painting or sculpting - to succeed as artists.
Very soon it turned out that they are also no good at working with video camera. So video-artists first of all followed the track of film-industry pioneers in order to learn the elements of profession. Often unaware of it, they re-discovered methods of early silent films - short format, high-motion shooting, double exposure, tricks with camera switching-out invented by Geprges Méličs, etc.
Then - sometimes without meaning it - video-artists started to compete with media reality, recasting the images of music video, popular TV-series, advertisements, porno films or typical Hollywood blockbusters. The latter ones - in pursuit of stable success with the public - also tend to overdo sequels and repeats.
Our exhibition project puts together the whole history of relationship between video and cinema - from the re-invention of silents’ formal techniques to the remakes of cult movies. Oddly enough, among the helpless opuses under the disguise of video-art one can sometimes find really talented works. Authors of those are our friends - Russian video artists.
