Theme – Set in Concrete
The projection will occur on a concrete wall WITHOUT ANY WALL COVERINGS… It will be literally SET IN CONCRETE.
Thus, the integration of the video section in Chic Art Fair is rooted in its
determination to embrace various ways of expression in contemporary arts. SET IN CONCRETE will to side with the renewing occurrences in contemporary arts.
This video section will be SET IN CONCRETE, as the projection will dress up a concrete protected wall from the city of Paris. Moreover, the tangible motives figured in the videos as subjects will give the flat wall take consistence through the lines of action and camera movements.
Finally, the SET IN CONCRETE editorial line is an echo of the creative steps in video art, the set being considered as an essential part of an idea turned into images.
Open Call has no budget. It is offered to the artists as an opportunity to EXPERIMENT WITH AN OUTSIDE SHOWING in the city of Paris on an exceptionally gigantic concrete wall. Every day The Urban Screening will reach a diverse public in a privileged setting of the Cité de la Mode et du design, where the Chic Art Fair takes places at the same time as the FIAC. It is an experiment in which either EXISTING OR NEWLY CREATEDvideos can be integrated. For the artists who create new videos dedicated to the screening «Set in concrete», we suggest the optimization the architecture of the wall. The cross in the middle appears to us as a strong structural element.
