FemLink: The Videocollage

Das Konzept von FemLink ist simpel. Eine Kuenstlerin pro Land erstellt einen kurzen (max. 2 min) Film zu einem gemeinsamen Thema.
In 2006 ist "Fragility" (Zerbrechlichkeit) das Thema aller Videoarbeiten.
Die resultierende Collage aus Videos versteht sich als Bruecke zwischen den Kuenstlerinnen und ihren Herkunftslaendern.
30 videos von 30 Kuenstlerinnen aus 30 Laendern.

The point of view of an artist-video on the relationship between the significant language in the art of video: "the image and the sound and the maginary language": one duration with the particular image.

Self-portrait drawings during August 1998. At the time I was staying alone in a house, in a small village: Maze, north of Norway.

Daniela Kostova BG INVISIBLE 2 min 2006
These suits allow me to explore issues of silence and absence, integration and estrangement in different political and cultural environments.

“Tain” silvering (for mirrors); foil, tain, glace sans makes the image possible
