Contour 2005 - 2nd Biennial for Video Art
17 Sep - 20 Nov 2005
17 September - 20 November 2005
Curator: Cis Bierinckx
"Two artists, Dara Birnbaum and Kerry Tribe, were the starting point for bringing together a congenial group of artists and their work. I was fascinated not only by the confrontation between two generations of artists, but also by the manifest statements Dara Birnbaum, the 'godmother' of video art, and Kerry Tribe, a young upcoming artist, expressed on a very personal level. For the selection of the other artists, I was inspired by the intensity and the vision of these two artists.
More by feel than by the idea of presenting an up-to-date sample card of video art, I started looking for those artists who support the argument I wish to elaborate, in order to reach an exciting, essential and precise discourse on 'film' and 'image'".
