“CON-TEMPORARY Art Observatorium was born on one side for the need to guide collectors and lovers with a vision that is attentive and directly involved in the art world, which today has deeply mutated for the social, economical and technological epochal changes, and on the other side to follow meaningful artists and make them grow their personal paths, promoting exhibitions coherent to the international artistic panorama that could grasp, create and anticipate the contemporary expression, beside dealing with human and social fundamental thematics to prevail over the futility and leave meaningful testimonies of our times.”
“The Oodaaq Festival has existed since 2011. Every year, it offers an artistic journey through the city of Rennes. It brings together exhibitions, video art screenings, performances, installations in the public space, conferences and round tables around nomadic and poetic images.
Through its programming, L’Œil d’Oodaaq questions the place of the image in today’s society and the way in which artists take up contemporary problems and issues of society. L’Œil d’Oodaaq is interested in all the stages of existence of the image, from its construction to its reception and circulation, as well as its recent mutations in the digital age. The association has coined the expression “nomadic and poetic image”, reflecting the shifting, multiple and reflexive nature of the images it wishes to highlight.
The Oodaaq Festival aims to be a space for meetings and cross-fertilisation around these reflections on images and their media. For the 2023 edition, the festival will be mainly devoted to video art with a particular interest in works that question contemporary struggles (ecofeminism, feminism(s), social and ecological struggles…). At the heart of its programming, videos will be presented in the context of programme screenings containing several works, exhibitions, autonomous installations, showcases and salons.”

“Artificial intelligence as a key digital technology of the 21st century is already massively influencing the media information landscape. In the age of deep learning, we are increasingly confronted with AI-controlled applications that intervene in production and economic processes, that are used in medicine and opinion research, in techniques of industrial as well as personal surveillance, but also in digital entertainment fields. AI-controlled apps that generate beings that appear human are freely available. The trade-off between usefulness and risk is a central issue. What will a future balance between nature and technology look like, in which humans retain the upper hand as moderators of a humane society?
In a separate exhibition trilogy, three projects of the Neue Galerie im Höhmannhaus explore these questions. The first is by the Augsburg video artist Erika Kassnel-Henneberg. In her artistic research, she is primarily on the trail of the so-called “Uncanny Valley”. The term was coined by the Japanese robotics professor Masahiro Mori (*1927) as early as the 1970s and refers to a hypothesis about our acceptance of artificial, humanoid figures: the more human a figure looks and appears, the higher its acceptance – but only up to a certain point, from which a sudden rejection attitude sets in with the viewer. This phenomenon, known as “Uncanny Valley”, and the feelings associated with it are not the same for everyone. Is there such a thing as an inner social rejection mechanism that intuitively wants to protect us from the “fake” of invented, human-like beings?” https://kunstsammlungen-museen.augsburg.de/uncanny-valley
“Even as a child, I never liked looking at wax figures. They looked kind of creepy to me. At that time, electronic prosthetic hands were developed, which triggered the same feeling in me. These experiences got me thinking about robots in general, which led me to write this essay. The Uncanny Valley was my intuition.” Masahiro Mori about „The Uncanny Valley“

PRESENT VENUE: Leonardo Favio Audiovisual Production Centre, Chacabuco 600, Bernal Buenos Aires.
Date/ Time: 17 December, 20 Hs .

Critic: Marina Julieta Amestoy
Performance and videomapping design: Marisol Bellusci
Sound design: Nacho Lecs

The intervention will be developed as follows:
When the sun goes down, the projection will be activated on the façade of the CPA Leonardo Favio. The performer will improvise with a software that supports audiovisual editing in real time. The participating works, partially or totally, will dialogue with each other and with the unpredictability of the environment itself.
All the artists selected in TRANSPARENT BODY will be invited to participate in the cycle “CT Archive” in El ParaVirtual, Virtual Cultural Centre. In this cycle each of the selected works will be broadcasted in full. @instagram
