Assuming that video art is an art form which refers to and reflects the object produced by the camera, one cannot help but wonder how this form of art can still exist and thrive when these same references and reflections drift off into the temporary and arbitrary and dissolve within the limitless space of possibilities.

Considering its relatively short history, one might call video art the self-deconstruction of a not yet matured form of art.

The international exhibition of video art and photography “Sky” actually consists of two distinct parts: the German show “Looking at the Big Sky” which is presented by the Goethe-Institut and the exhibition “Overclocking” which is organized by the museum of the Art Academy Nanjing. Both parts of the exhibition will focus on contemporary international experimentation in the field of video art. At the same time, they aim to initiate an interesting and easy dialogue on experimental video art between young artists from Germany, China and other countries.

Moreover, the exhibition with its combination of experiments, theory and practice of video art serves as a prelude to an international project geared towards exploring this multi-faceted art form.

如果说“影像艺术”到底是一种经过镜像的艺术,它始终指向和反射通过镜头的存在,而当这种指向和反射的内容和方式落入暂时的不着边际,在更多的可能性和空间中发散、传播、消耗和消费开来,它又如何存在着和变异着? 鉴于录像艺术短暂的发展史,可将之称为一种尚未完满之下即已开始的自我解构。

“天空国际影像展”由歌德学院(中国)引进的德国展览单元《仰望辽阔的天空》和由南京艺术学院美术馆策划的平行展览单元《超频》组成。两个展览单元将聚焦和分享当下国际性的当代影像实验,展示关于当代影像及其展示和存在方式的多样性及其新可能性的一片天空,并在德国青年实验影像和中国及其他国家的青年实验影像之间展开有趣而不羁的对话。

在此基础上,“天空国际影像展”也将结合国内外影像实验与理论、实践等,形成一个国际性的影像艺术推介、评判和持续实验的项目。
