On January 8, 2015 CYBERFEST 2014 last act has made its American debut with an exclusive screening of video artworks at the Made in NY Media Center by IFP and Made in Ancient Greece Object #3 installation by Anna Frants and CYLAND MediaArtLab.
The Made in NY Media Center by IFP, designed by MESH Architects, is a multi-disciplinary creative space with over 20,000 square feet at 30 John Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The centerpiece of the center is the screening room, which has a continuous, wrap-around media projection wall on the outside and a warm interior of felt and reclaimed wood.
CYBERFEST screening, ranging in length from 1 minute to 13 minutes in length, brought together short video artworks that quantify the notion that physical location, environment and structure of one’s house is less definitive in today’s world of virtuality.
Artists, whose work is included, in this international exploration of «home» are Anna Jermolaeva, Francesca Fini, Marcantonio Lunardi, Mark Salvatus, Aujik, Rasmus Albertsen, Vassiliev Yuri, Alena Tereshko, Mauricio Sanhueza, Sandrine Deumier and Alx_P.op., Yannis Kranidiotis, Arya Sukapura Putra, Jean-Michel Rolland, Eleonore Joulin, Maria Korporal, Liuda Kartoshkina, Emilija Skarnulyte, Ryo Ikeshiro.
Made in Ancient Greece Object #3 by Anna Frants and CYLAND MediaArtLab uses classical clay vessels to tell stories by visual means, where the artists uses contemporary videos proving that an object from the past could be a great vehicle for a narrative about the present.
Previously Made in Ancient Greece series have been nominated for Sergey Kuryokhin Modern Art Award and were featured in the devoted exhibition, as well as being installed at MAD (The Museum of Art and Design) Special Exhibition, and at the CAPITAL OF NOWHERE in Venice and Berlin.
