Eleonora Duse Theatre in Asolo, Italy

Close to the internationally contemporary art city Venice, the mountain town Asolo in the Northern Italy holds Asolo Art Film Festival, the oldest art film festival in the world. Founded in 1973, this film festival is famed for its special feature of Art and Artists’ Biographies. The ancient Asolo inspired the Old Masters such as Giorgione, Andrea Palladio, Paolo Veronese, Antonio Canova with its Arcadian paysage. As Venice Biennale is always the spotlight of contemporary art, the annual Asolo Art Film Festival is the conflux of art video creativeness and interdisciplinary art energies, as well as the encouragements of young video artists and the achievements of international cultural exchanges. The 34th edition of Asolo Art Film Festival will take place from October 30 till November 7 in 2015. The focal theme will be “BRICS Art”, including the curatorial projects of art films and performances from Brazil, Russia, India, China, Brazil and South Africa. The Taiwanese curator Yunnia Yang is invited by the 34th Asolo Art Film Festival with her curatorial projects-TAIWAN VIDEAThe Taiwanese Avant-Garde Video exhibition,Imagining CrisisThe International Creative Video Exhibition. The former infuses the features of criticism, originality and diversity from the Taiwanese video art and experimental videos. These 13 videos have been awarded in the national and international film festivals, including video art, performance art, experimental videos, experimental animations, digital animations, MV animations, etc. The artists Tsui Kuang-Yu, Pu Shuai-Cheng, Wu Tzu-An, Wang Ding-Yeh, Zhang Xu Zhan, Wang Deng-Yu, Rau Kao, Chang Huei-Ming, Chen I-Chun, Wu Chi-Tsung, Chiang Iuan-Hau, Christian Rizzo, Huang Zan-Lun, and Ho Wei-Ming will subvert viewers’ given impressions on the Taiwanese culture and arts, crossing over the boundaries between fine art and popular culture. The issues of TAIWAN VIDEAare only concerned about Taiwan, but also about the globally contemporary situations. The universal values of creative thinking are the fundamentals of avant-garde images with subversive strengths. Imagining Crisis explores the origins of creativity ( death instincts, imagination about crisis ), the mutual influences between them and the contemporary survival crises, and the representations of multimedia related to the above-mentioned subjects, which interest Asolo Art Film Festival most. Since 2014, Imagining Crisishas toured around MOCA Taipei, and the contemporary art institutions in Poland, Serbia, Bulgaria and Colombia.

鄰近國際當代藝術大城威尼斯,義大利北部山城阿索洛(Asolo)擁有世界上最古老的藝術電影節-阿索洛國際藝術影展(Asolo Art Film Festival),成立於1973年,以藝術與藝術家自傳為主題聞名,古代的阿索洛是眾多義大利藝術大師如喬奇昂尼(Giorgione)、 帕拉底奧(Andrea Palladio)、維洛內些(Paolo Veronese)、卡諾瓦( Antonio Canova)等激發創意靈感的美景聖地,當今藝術光彩總是聚焦於威尼斯雙年展,而每年舉辦的阿索洛國際藝術電影節在藝術影像創作與跨領域藝術能量的匯聚展現,對青年世代影像藝術的傳承激勵與國際交流令人驚艷。今年影展已邁入第34屆將於20151030日至117日舉辦,主辦單位聚焦「金磚藝術」(BRICS Art)專題,策劃來自「金磚五國」(俄羅斯、中國、巴西、印度、南非)的創意影像與藝術展演,以豐富影展的國際視野與多元觀點。台灣策展人楊衍畇(Yunnia Yang)受邀為影展策畫兩個錄像專題-《TAIWAN VIDEA》台灣前衛影像展、《危奇觀》(Imagining Crisis)國際創意影像展,前者匯聚台灣錄像藝術與實驗影像的批判性、原創性與多元性之能量,這13部作品曾在國際與台灣各大影展獲獎,包含錄像藝術、行為藝術、實驗影像、實驗動畫、數位動畫、MV動畫等類型,參展藝術家包括崔廣宇、蒲帥成、吳梓安、王鼎曄、張徐展、王登鈺、高逸軍、張暉明、陳依純、吳季璁、江元皓、Christian Rizzo、黃贊倫、何尉民,將顛覆觀者對台灣文化藝術的印象,跨越了純藝術與流行文化的界限,議題非僅與台灣相關更與全球當代問題接軌,普世價值的創作思維正是具有顛覆力量的前衛影像所必要的基礎。「危奇觀」探究創意來源(死慾、對危機的想像)如何與當代生存危機交互影響創作與如何以影音媒材表現,亦正是國際藝術影展高度關注的議題之一,本策展計畫自2014年至今已於台北當代藝術館以及波蘭、塞爾維亞、保加利亞、哥倫比亞等當代藝術中心巡迴展出。
