We presented there 3 site-specific video installations: "Shifting Gaze", "Untitled Mind" and "Quantum".
"Untitled Mind" is a multilayered mapped installation conceived as a short film video dance piece that explores the otherness in the self, focusing on the idea of the mirrored one, the creative ability, the dream, the unconscious mind.
Directed and filmed by Laia Cabrera, the piece is based on an original idea by Catherine Correa in collaboration with awarded choreographer Alexandre Proia. The piece features two actors/dancers Catherine Correa and
Jonathan Royse Windham with production design and visual effects by
Isabelle Duverger, music by Javier Moreno Sanchez, sound design by
Gisella-Fulla Silvestre and Arooj Aftab.
"Shifting Gaze" is a film-art-music installation about choice, desire
and memory conceived and directed by Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video
artist) and created in collaboration with Erica Glyn (music, composer
and singer) and Isabelle Duverger (animation and mapping). Shifting Gaze
is a film about identity, about making choices, a memory in act.
Drawing from the body, faces, urban patterns, nature and remains of
activity, the piece explores a notion of choice, linked to desire and
memory –choice being the present, memory representing the past and
desire, the drive for a future. Underneath these mirrored imageries lie
many stories about limits, freedom and self-perception.
"Quantum" is a series of videoart pieces about time, life and space by Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger
