18.08.2016 | The One Minutes Series of September, entitled No Humans - No Animals - No Sound, is to be curated by Melvin Moti and will be exhibited during the weekend of September 3rd and 4th at Het Kunstlokaal. The series consists of meditative one-minute films by various artists and does not contain humans, animals and sound.
The One Minutes is a global network devoted to moving image.
Every month, a different artist is asked to put together a new series of 60-second films that investigate how we perceive and engage with moving image. The Dutch artist Melvin Moti will invite several artists and filmmakers to make their own One Minute without humans, animals and sound. See the Open Call video
on The One Minutes’ Vimeo.
Selected films will be exhibited at De School and tour museums and cultural organisations with a subscription to The One Minutes in September.
Dutch artist Melvin Moti (Rotterdam, 1977) works in film and video, but the visual elements of his work are so downplayed that this description is too simplistic. Rather, he encourages his viewers to listen, to observe less passively, to hunt for clues or to embark on a kind of mental journey. Moti had solo shows at a.o. Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (JP), Museum für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt (DE) and Kunsthalle Lisbon (PT) and took part in the international group exhibition The Encyclopedic Palace at the 55th Bienniale in Venice.
The installation in Het Kunstlokaal can be visited on Saturday September 3rd and Sunday September 4th during the day and on Saturday night during the club night, which starts at 23:00. Entry to the installation is free of charge. Melvin Moti will be present at the opening on Saturday September 3rd from 17:00 to 19:00.
