CHASING BOUNDARIES

A documentary film by Zaelia Bishop and Emanuele Napolitano
Official Selection of Shorts films Corner – Festival de Cannes 2016

One-off screening on April 19, 2016 at 8pm, followed by debate 
With the participation of Valentina G. Levy and Paola Ugolini

Tuesday, April 19, 2016 at 8pm AlbumArte presents “Chasing Boundaries”, a series of documentary films focused on contemporary art by Zaelia Bishop and Emanuele Napolitano, official selected in Shorts films Corner of Festival de Cannes 2016.

Chasing Boundaries was developed to describe the art practice with a video art approach and it’s another  documentary  form  that  defies  the  plot  and  the  easily digested information and  opens sensory receptors to new modes of perception.
The  aim  is  to  gather  different  voices  from distant  lands,  statements  of people that dealt  with the difficult and impossible and learned to transform those experiences into art. The interviews pull  the  viewer  into  the position  of  the  subject  and examines  how artists  work  with  images  of the everyday and give them a different meaning.
This first chapter was shot in Israel where artists are currently responding to political, historical and  religious  issues  by  using  dynamic  and  experimental  artistic  practices. Every  interview  is entwined  with  images  of  the  city  life  and  wild  scenarios  to highlight  the  connections  between art, life, natural forces and human condition. The artists interviewed in Chasing Boundaries are specifically  engaged  with  the  process of  re-describing  what  gets  made now,  dealing  with  what constitutes the image of the contemporary and with what the contemporary produce.

Artists interviewed:  Meital Katz Minerbo, Eyal Yehuda, Gal Weinstein, Assaf Abutbul, Maya Attoun, Nivi Alroy.

Zaelia Bishop / Emanuele Napolitano 

Zaelia  Bishop  and Emanuele  Napolitano’s  practice  is  based  on  observations  of encounter, interaction and  fusion  between  image  and  vision.  Their  projects examine  in particular  therelationship  with everyday  society,  identities  and connections  between images  and  social behaviour.   Documentation, collection,   the exploration   of   the   artefactual   dimension, re-representations of images and spaces with various media, or creating a new presence for them, form Their practice. Zaelia Bishop and Emanuele Napolitano are interested in considerations of the possibility and impossibility of vision, or how images and visions in general can be practised any more today and exploring the life-span and cycles of an image and its topic.
