A screening of video art that has strong roots in performance, postponed until a later date to be announced in 2014. The artists include Pedro Alba, Camille Escudero, Francesca Fini, Danny Germansen & sylviatoyindustries.
Pedro Alba (Spain). “PERFORMANCE & EXPERIMENTAL ARTIST ON THE PROCESS OF COMMUNICATION AND PUBLIC PARTICIPATION.” His work is based on the development of ideas and concepts worked from the transmedia and multidisciplinary. Mr. Alba’s work is like an open research laboratory and he believes that “video is not going to be a discipline that will escape.” He uses video in a variety of ways: as the investigation of public participation as an integral part of the film to make it the protagonist experiential of the same; as the creation of short dark films based on action art and post-theater; as reflecting on contemporary society; and finally from a more cinematic aspect, Mr. Alba performs a series of experimental documentary films that sometimes begin with a simple idea and other times through a deeper documentation process.
Mr. Alba is a collaborative artist, working with a larger company that creates transmedia art from original and unique concepts. A recent collaborative work, THE PATATERO, policy and performance in 2013, is an excellent example of the integral nature of public participation in Mr. Alba’s work.
Pedro Alba is the director of the only internet tv, in Spanish, dedicated to action art and performance (TV ElRetreteRosa RR_Tv). He is also the director of the KAPAS / International Performance & Antisystem Itinerant Film Festival, with more than 10 European cities such as headquarters.
Mr. Alba’s show TROIKA, CONTRACOMUNICACIÓN Y POSTPERIODISMO is currently running at The Grey Square in Tarragona, Spain. http://www.pedroalba.com.
