hungry eyes festival - festival at the intersection of film, performance and installation art

Eligibility:

February 5th – 7th, 2021 // KiZ Gießen

For its fourth edition, hungry eyes festival is once again looking for artistic works that situate themselves at the intersection of film, performance and installation art and question film in an interdisciplinary way. This year hungry eyes festival will take place in the urban exhibition space KiZ (Kultur im Zentrum) and poses the question of how cinematic works can relate to, as well as challenge that space.
A program consisting of short film series, performative and installative works will explore what constitutes the medium film and how cinematographic elements and working methods can be translated into other media. What can cinematic work mean in the context of installation art and performances if it does not only mean the playing of audiovisual clips? To what extent can also a short film address its own form and play with performative elements? By which means does film become a field of experimentation that expands its own concept and practice in an interdisciplinary approach? From a ballet of overhead projectors, an exhibition with flip-books to a silent movie screening with
virtual reality glasses – everything is possible.

hungry eyes festival is looking for your short films, installation art and performative formats!

Apply with your works until 31th of August 2020!

Since we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary works, we also want to encourage artists to apply with projects that do not fit perfectly into one of these categories!

THE PERFORMER Call for Exhibition

In the next exhibition the figure of the performer will be our gaze's protagonist .

The gathered works will once again make explicit the role of the photographic medium, already highlighted with the experiences of the performing arts since the 1960s, in the process of creation and diffusion, as well as documentation, analysis and interpretation of the performative act.

The key element is the "gesture", as in any type of performative performance: artistic, theatrical, choreographic, musical, etc., understood as a set of signs of a corporeal and primitive language, as cultural codes that concern behavior, through which the performer seeks contact, involvement and often active participation.

The figure of the performer is thus recalled as the author of the artistic performance but also of the athletic one, where aesthetics, balance of form, harmony of gesture become visual stimuli that involves the emotional sphere of the observer.

ABOUT THE RESIDENCY PROGRAM

The Ucross Foundation Residency Program offers the gift of time and space to competitively selected individuals working in all artistic disciplines.  The Foundation strives to provide a respectful, comfortable and productive environment, freeing artists from the pressures and distractions of daily life.  As painter Carol Schwennesen commented, "There has been no other art experience that has been as wide and deep and solid as the experience of being at Ucross."

The Ucross Foundation provides living accommodations, individual work space, and uninterrupted time to approximately 85 individuals each year.  Typical residencies are one month in length but can vary from two to six weeks.  At any one time, there are up to ten individuals in residence, a mix of visual artists, writers and composers.  In most cases, studios are separate from living quarters.  

Lunch and dinners are prepared Monday to Friday by a professional chef with ample provisions on hand for breakfasts and weekends.  Lunches are delivered to individual studios; group dinners take place at 6 p.m.  Towels and all linens are provided, as is weekly housekeeping for bedrooms.  There is cell phone service and wireless internet throughout residency facilities.  

Residents are responsible for providing their own working materials and for their travel to Sheridan, Wyoming.  There is no charge for a residency.
