|You Make Me
Feel So Good, 2007
Director: Juan Pablo Echeverri
make me feel so good, is a video-clip to a "reggaeton" song that
artist completed at Braziers International Artist Workshop in England
the location of this Workshop was around a castle,
Echeverri decided to create a fairytale like scenery, dressed like Snow
White, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella, and singing along to this (very
fast), and cheesy song. The video was intended to be some sort of
dream or fantasy that he had ever since he started to plan the video
before he even got there, so it starts with him dressed like a man,
spinning like wonder woman changing into the Disney Princesses.
Juan Pablo Echeverri Muñoz was born on 22 November 1978
in Colombia. He
studied Visual Art between 1997 and 2002 at Pontificia Universidad
Javeriana in Bogotá. Now a photographer and film maker, Juan
concentrates on self portraits. His work explores themes of identity,
image and gender in the public and private realms, and the way in which
individual identity develops over time. Juan"s native language is
Spanish and he is fluent in English.

2007 (5' 20")
Director: Isidora Ilic, Serbia.
||Video art Code
is homage to Alain Resnais' film: Last Year in Marienbad. It questions
relation between language and empty spaces. The place witnesses the
identity and history but place is only a group of elements existing in
certain order. Walkers transform place into space by their presence and
movement. A word, like a place, is unidentifiable but in act of speech,
surrounded by different elements, it becomes multiply term and language
creates the meaning.
1978 Novi Sad, Serbia. Studied Comparative Literature and Theory of
literature at Belgrade University. Her works are based around
film/video, performance and art theories. Experimenting with and into
different artistics fields. Performer and author of interdisciplinary
projects. Since 2003 she is creatibly associated with Bosko Prostran
with whom she established DOPLGENGER artistic group in 2006.

|SBARA - 2007
Director: Larissa Sansour. Danmark/Palestina.
referencing the 1980 cult classic The Shining by Stanley Kubrick, the
video piece SBARA
explores the castigation of Arabs in contemporary
Western dialogue. By adding an audio montage combining historical and
current quotes on the Middle East to footage paraphrasing scenes from
the original film, SBARA seeks to expose the cyclical nature of Middle
Eastern rhetoric and policies and emphasize the psychological terror
inflicted upon those at the receiving end of this repetitively stagnant
Palestine/Denmark. Born 1973 in Jerusalem to a Palestinian father and a
Russian mother, Larissa Sansour studied Fine Art in Copenhagen, London
and New York, and graduated with a master’s degree in Fine Art from New
York University in 2000.
Sansour’s work has been shown in various exhibitions and festivals
throughout the world. Amongst many others the 8th International Digital
Exhibit in Cuba, the Gstaad Art Film Festival in Switzerland,
Coding-De-Coding at the Nikolaj Contemporary Art Centre in Copenhagen,
Denmark, Cinematexas 11 in the USA, Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt in
Berlin, and the UK touring exhibition PARANOIA. She currently lives and
works in Copenhagen, Denmark.

|"Not Yet" 2007
to Braziers with my dog Bob, who has just
celebrated his 119th Birthday in human years.
I wanted to make an allegorical film, using an emblematic structure of
people, like a Greek motif depicting notions of essential elements.
I worked with six men, considering them guardians of
the day, night and afterlife, symmetrically placed in
a drawing made of hay. I asked them to perform a
ritual that dissembled the drawing, which left Bob to
make his decisions.'

The question started with an uncomfortable feeling or compulsion to get
