EXiS Experimental Film and Video Festival
Screening of 'relocation' (2011)
1-7 September 2011
'relocation' reflects on how and to what extent Mount Ararat (still) defines Armenian identity. What is its iconologic value, and how does it play part in Armenian collective memory?
Pieter Geenen lives and works in Brussels (Belgium). In his audiovisual productions he questions the landscape as a bearer of meaning. Geenen is interested in the suggestive and evocative qualities of the landscape in different geo-political and geo-social realities. In his work the image manifests itself slowly, exploring the subtle and hidden characteristics of things. Listening and watching becomes intense, intimate, alienative, contemplative and almost tangible in the context of an undisturbed stillness.
