THE PRACTICE OF LOVE /  JENNY HVAL & LASSE MARHAUG / NORJA / 2019 / 10:19

The Practice of Love is a short film by Norwegian artist Lasse Marhaug, based on his collaboration with artist and writer Jenny Hval. It consists entirely of still images, and circles around a single character played by dancer Ingrid Haakstad. Shifting between close-ups of simple, everyday movements, abstract sequences and written text, the film creates a study of love as an attempt to communicate through the means of the body, the voice, language and sound. This is highlighted by the soundtrack, combining a recording of Hval’s voice with field recordings and eerie, isolated synth tracks from her recordings. Like in Marhaug’s previous film, Something Must Happen (2018), aspects of isolation and communication are woven together, this time into a shifting experience of intimacy.

The Practice of Love is both a conversation and a monologue, a study of intimacy as abstract yet almost within reach, mysterious yet tactile.

INEDITED ROSE / SOFIA CASTRO / ARGENTIINA / 2020  / 5:52

Inedit Rose is an hypnotic transept which appropriates the musical film, decontextualises its clichés and focuses on its plastic elements and the gender dynamics among its performers. The psycho-electronic spoken word music of the Barcelona-based band Versonautas guides the process.

KARMA / NOBUHIRO AIHARA / JAPANI / 1977 / 3:00

A delicate and abstract drawing animation beginning with a droplet of water.
