Gosha Babanski & Anatoly Belov
Presentation of the book “Demon’s Eyes”
“Demon’s Eyes” is a sci-fi queer graphic novel. In this neo-noir comic book authors Gosha Babanski & Anatoly Belov depict the city of Kyiv in the year 2034, where in a rapidly developing high-tech society a memory becomes the main desire and resource.
Gosha Babanski (b.1986, Ukraine) is director, script-writer and musician currently based in Сhartres, France. Anatoly Belov (b. 1977, Ukraine) currently based in Lublin, Poland. Belov’s and Babanskyi’s works often take the form of musical performances, graphic works, and video works. Together they founded the queer-pop project “Lyudska Podoba” (Human Likeness), which was the first queer musical band in Ukraine.
“The Lost Argo”
“The Lost Argo” is a parafictional story from a deep future, an investigation into the disappearance of a spaceship based on an acoustic and visual data forensics. The video work portrays the impact of a technological failure during the emergency call and how it affects the accuracy of the information. “The Lost Argo” draws parallels between a missing in time and space Argo and systematic failure in emergency responses in human rights cases. It underlines the importance of accurately documenting and analyzing information in crisis situations and highlights the potential consequences of technological errors.
Isan Maher (b. 1986, Egypt) lives and works in Oslo. Maher’s artistic practice focuses on his interest in the aesthetics of the phone and contemporary communication modes. He is interested in how a package is conveyed from Egypt to Europe in a phone app, or how a glitch can corrupt a telephone call, or how an emergency call sounds underwater. His subjects are processed in an interdisciplinary manner including drawing, sculpting, and moving images.
“What the Rocks Know”
The video work “What the Rocks Know” explores the deep time of churches and prehistoric human made stone formations found in different locations across the south of Norway. This work is an attempt to trace the movements of rocks, from creation to its present state, from when they were parts of architectural sites and used for ceremonial purposes by our ancestors, to the future that is still unknown to us. In this work, rocks become witnesses of lost cities, histories, beliefs and ideas. “What the Rocks Know” is mirroring our limit of understanding non-human life – a knowledge that evades us, and that fundamentally points to a time before and after human existence.
Ørjan Amundsen (b.1982, Norway) is based in Oslo and works mainly with video, text and music, most often in combination. Central to his practice are investigations of how digital media and information technologies and how they help to shape our perception and conception of reality.
