On May 29th and 30th, 2015, Work in Progress and Thereart.ro present a new contemporary art and urban culture event, INTERSECTION, in partnership with Zeppelin, hosted by Halele Carol, Bucharest (1 Constantin Istrati Street, near Carol Park).
The event, supported by Grolsch, AQUA Carpatica, Jägermeister, THE PLOT, POSCA and Toyota, will focus on the concept of intersection, revealing how, within an unconventional space, various art forms can communicate and creatively enrich together the space with different meanings that the viewer is invited to discover and connect the works with the architecture of the building, its context, with sound and motion.
The event will include a contemporary art exhibition with installations, sculptures and printed works by artists from different fields who will interpret the theme of the event in their own vision: Aitch, Bast, Raluca Băraru, Ion Bârlădeanu (H’art Gallery), Lucian Baraitaru, Alina Bohoru, Otilia Cadar, Mihai Chiţu, Mimi Ciora, Liviu Coman, Amalia Dulhan, Dragoș-Radu Dumitrescu, Victor Fota, Loreta Isac, Kadna, Horaţiu Lazăr, Cristina Matei, Oliver Merce, Ileana Oancea, Cătălin Oancea, Florin Pantilimon, Mihaela Paraschivu, Pisica Pătrată, Obie Platon, Mircea Popescu, Lea Rasovszky, Saddo, Serebe, Diana Stanciu/ Ignissa, Ramona Şlug, Sorina Vazelina. The works will be printed with the support of THE PLOT. The event will also feature live performances, and also workshops of screen printing by Librăria Jumătatea Plină and a workshop by STORYSCAPES, the first Romanian association focusing on transmedia storytelling and interactive narratives.
With a selection of over 100 short films each year, presented in the two competitions and through numerous special programs, NexT is one of the most eclectic festivals on the Romanian cinematographic scene, a panorama of innovative and imaginative cinema in the world. On Friday and Saturday, May 29th-30th, NexT will present a special selection featuring avant-garde short films screened during the nine editions of the festival, extraordinary audio-visual experiments at the intersection of narrative and formal innovation, from the minimalist animation about primary instincts “Endemic’s Greed” (d. Natalia Dziedzic, Poland, 2014) to a story with surrealist accents – “In which the protagonist hides and then has an unexpected encounter” (2015), the new short film by Tudor Cristian Jurgiu. The list also includes: “Baby Nap”, a trip into the mind’s hidden playground by Paul Mureșan, “Superbia” (2014) directed by Martti Helde, “The sound of the stars dazes me” (2012) by Teddy Williams, winner of “Andrei Toncu” Award for the Best Soundtrack at NexT 2014, or “Autism” (d. Alexandru Petru Badeliță, Romania, 2013), the story of a student who is in his last year of film school and is searching for a job, and more.
