Juan Sorrentino, Vladimir Nikolić, Pelin Kırca
5 June – 29 July 2018
The global consortium AFI curates works on the theme of truth in international artist’s film today.
In Juan Sorrentino’s (b.1978, Argentina) Untitled (2015), a blank canvas carried through a sunlit forest becomes a metaphor for the creator looking for inspiration and an attempt to capture nature in art.
There is No Landscape (2014) by Vladimir Nikolić (b. 1974, Serbia) captures the view of Mount Luofu in Guandong, China, while a voiceover by two critics describes a performance artist interacting with the environment – narrative trumps vision as we project his actions onto the bucolic scene.
Pelin Kırca’s (b. 1982, USA) animation One Moonless Night (2016) fuses a Persian Sufi poem by Farid ud-Din Attar The Conference of the Birds (1177) with the syncopated beats of 1990s rock band Morphine, to search for truth through a new expressive language.
Juan Sorrentino is selected by PROA; Vladimir Nikolić by Belgrade Cultural Centre; Pelin Kırca by Istanbul Modern
