Sets & Devices

A4 Arts Foundation presents two video works of differing material outcomes to encourage engagement on the 'matter' of the moving image. 

Clement Cogitore's piece features contemporary Krump dancers performing for camera to music written by Jean-Philippe Rameau for the Opéra-ballet Les Indes Galantes, which dates from the year 1735. A4 shows the work inside a made-for-purpose video booth.

In contrast, Borna Sammak's Not Yet Titled is staged as a video sculpture. The hyper-digital visual field, an LCD monitor, and a pink steel frame rest against the video booth and the floor.

Using these limits, participants are encouraged to explore video works with an eye on the materiality of the works displayed.

This, the first presentation by A4 at an art fair, emerged as a response to a conversation with curators from the Investec Cape Town Art Fair concerned with unstable media.
