ART CINEMA Slow Landscape #3

OFFoff Art Cinema en Club Solo presenteren de tweede editie van de serie Slow Landscape. Daarin zien we hoe ‘tijd’ in film worden weergegeven. Of zoals Andrei Tarkovsky schreef – ‘hoe film beeldhouwt met tijd’. In ‘slow cinema’ staat tijd centraal. De cineasten reflecteren op wat film is en verzetten zich tegen de mainstream filmcultuur, waarin shots elkaar in rap tempo opvolgen en actie enkel afleidt van de essentie.Vertegenwoordigers zijn de grondleggers van deze stroming, zoals Chantal Akerman, Ingmar Bergman en Andrei Tarkovsky, en de meer hedendaagse cineasten, zoals Béla Tarr en Lav Diaz. Hun films hebben een trage actieradius en lange en trage shots zonder dominante montage, waarin de karakters worden uitgediept.

19.30 inloop
20.00 inleiding door Godart Bakkers, artistiek leider van OFFoff
20.15 – 21.00 filmvertoning

Filmbeschrijving
Slow landscape 3: ‘Gabriel’ by Agnes Martin (USA)
This is the only movie in the oeuvre by American artist Agnes Martin (1912-2004), but it gels well with her work. Gabriel is about the poetic and formal characteristics observed in landscape and time – the same subject that serves as the basis for Martin’s paintings. Why did she record this work, and how does she relate her work as a painter to film?

Agnes Martin spent much of her life living in the desolate wastes of New Mexico. She sees landscapes as an endless labyrinth, a stage of wandering, straying and uncovering. Like the boy Gabriel from her film, she experiences it with an open mind, forgoing explicit comment.

The film is silent, except for seven moments when fragments from Bach’s Goldberg variations are played. Martin did not use a script or storyboards. In 2011, the film was restored by the Museum of Modern Art and Pace Gallery,
New York.
