STATEMENT

NO SIGNAL: your service has been temporarily interrupted. It would be restored momentarily.

After a pause lasting two years, connection will be re-established in the spring of 2019. Mr Mov 2, a festival dedicated to video art, will take place for the second time in the city of Brescia, seen as a place to connect and enhance the work of international artists.

The signal has been reactivated: in this edition the screens of Mr Mov 2 will light up, offering an overview of some of the latest trends emerging in the world of audiovisual arts. Ten budding curators will select the works through an open call.

In a era in which everything runs too fast, we aim to make people think about the importance of time, trying also to attract the fleeting and momentary attention of the observer and to extend its duration, limiting as much as possible the passivity of the vision.

The works were divided into two thematic areas: Inner Garden and Surrounding Landscape.

INNER GARDEN

In the Inner garden room the artists investigate the limits, the constraints and at the same time the unlimited possibilities that the human body has in space, trying to find the balance between desidered armony and inner caos. These videos show the incessant duality between nature, as wished land(e)scape what we can discover the free will and the human body, as a place where the inner prisons and the reality are twisted and relased.

SURROUNDING LANDSCAPE

The works inside Surrounding landscape capture the original essence of an immense and living nature, which allows us to contemplate it through its greatness. The projected images invite us to stop and reflect on the sacredness of the earth where we live, showing us that it is still possible to get in touch with this natural dimension that surrounds us and creates everything.
