“Recollection Space”: site-specific video installations competition!
International Festival of Visual Culture “Vizii” in Kiev, Ukraine
Window of an abandoned house, the doors of an ancient temple or rusted swings in the garden … arches, bridges and subways – tunnels through time, through the wall of memories. What phantoms are living in these places? What stories are coming to life once again when you pass around? And how personal memories resonate with other temporary layers and associations?
“Vizii” Festival invites you to awake the “genius loci” and take part in the competition of site-specific video projects “Recollection Space”.
“Recollection Space” is a competition of video installations that are integrated into the urban environment. With the help of audio-visual means, the places silently preserving memories of the events and passers-by, will “speak” through the transparent multilayer mask of stories, allowing the viewer to rediscover and experience different parts of the city.
To participate in the contest please send a request, marked “Competition: Recollection Space”, to the festival e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
