MONITOR 12 – Images Festival

Curated by Oliver Husain, Otty Widasari, Yuki Aditya
Screening at Images Festival on April 25 at 7pm

SAVAC is pleased to premier Monitor 12 at Images Festival. Curated by Oliver Husain (Toronto), Otty Widasari and Yuki Aditya (Jakarta) the works in their program, Figures Pointing Outside the Frame, considers the peripheries of the image as significant as the content within.

The curators write: “Whether film, video, or a still image, the technology dictates the parameters of the frame. Decisions an image maker makes regarding the composition, duration, performance, and location further contribute to a viewer’s experience. Collaboration is formed between the technology, image maker, and subjects—though this collaboration is often expanded upon with elements, situations, and conditions beyond what is scripted. In this way, the program advocates for the viewer to consider the environmental, labour, historical, economical, gendered, and social conditions that influence the constructed experience.”

This marks the second year that SAVAC invites a local curator to collaborate with an international curator(s).  This model encourages the international dialogues we are expanding while also  exposing Toronto audience to global perspectives.

Nahed Mansour (SAVAC’s Artistic Director) will speak about Figures Pointing Outside the Frame in a panel discussion Images Festival is hosting about dislocation in cinema.
