  2. A screening of films and videos by Ana Bilankov, Franck Lesbros and Rodrigo Imaz followed by a conversation about processes and strategies in contemporary video and filmmaking, moderated by curator Isin Önol. Presented by SVA MA Curatorial Practice in partnership with Residency Unlimited.

    Ana Bilankov explores the poetics and politics of dislocation, migration, nomadism, no-places and construction of identity within "in-between-ness." Throughout her life, she has had to move between places and languages geographically, culturally and psychologically. Her new video, set in the postindustrial landscape of New York City, evokes traveling through time and space, somewhere between a utopian and a distopian vision of the future.

    Franck Lesbros works with video, installation and sculpture, constructing models that are activated as puppets for video shoots. They become the main protagonists of disturbing atmospheric action, backed by precise editing.

    In his documentary film Juan Perros, Rodrigo Imaz evokes the real meanings of life in its complex interaction of will, humility, crime, greed, nature and loneliness. Imaz's project is a tribute to the life of Juan Perros, an recluse who lives in a desert of detritus in North Mexico and his daily struggles with the forces of nature.
