Betty Boehm (Germany)
A Stair Dance, 2008, 1:09
By suddenly resounding revue-like music and an almost casual seemingly dance act, a filthy stairway in the City of Stuttgart, marked by nightly alcohol abuse and surrounding snack stalls, gets the chance to breathe a whiff of Las Vegas’ good old glorious days for a little moment…
An, as abrupt as short, irritation of people’s everyday shopping grind, which obviously leaves them speechless, not sure wether to ignore this awkward situation or to sink into deep abashment, requesting the “shiny” stairs for help.
Betty Boehm was born in 1979 in Reutlingen, Germany.
From 2000 to 2008 she studied Fine Arts in Stuttgart, Germany and San Francisco, USA.
During the course of her studies, she gained experience in various artistic disciplines, reaching from drawing, painting and installation to video art, acting and experimental sound art.
In her work, video and film works are playing a major role, which range from short film and loop to performance. The merge of those with other media like photography, photo montage and sound, as well as their integration in an installative and sculptural context are characteristic for her approach.

Nynke Deinema (NL)
The Mummer, 2014, 1:33
The mummer’ is inspired on the Kukeri festival which I have visited in Bulgaria. Kukeri is a traditional Bulgarian ritual to scare away evil spirits, with costumed men performing the ritual. The costumes, made of sheep- or goathair, cover most of the body. The men walk, run and dance wildly on the street. The material and the movements make them into walking wild sculptures.
This inspired me to make the video ‘the mummer’ in which a woman is covered with contemporary feminine material: Scarfs, only her legs are visible. She is guided by the material. By dancing in front of the camera also turns this woman in each sequence to an ever changed sculpture.
Nynke Deinema was born in 1963 and studied Fine Art at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam and on the UdK (former HdK) in Berlin. She works with different media. Her videoworks combine the body and the material. She is interested in the human being and his peculiarity. Recent video works have been screened at the Art Video Screening (Orbero/Sweden), Internationale Video et Art Electronique, (Montreal/Canada), Facade Video Festival (Plovdiv/Bulgaria) Numerous exhibitions, works in public spaces and publications.

The video shows the complete shearing of a naked body, laying down, immobile. The shearing starts at the bottom of the body ending by the shearing of the face, the neck, the cheeks, the eyebrows and the skull. The static shots and the aggressive soundtrack focus our view on the clippers. The
spectator follows the progress of the object on the body, the progress of the shearing at the rate of the electric appliance.
The matter disappears progressively. The body is laid bare a second time by removing all its hair. It appears as a complete smooth surface. The title 0000000002 insists on the idea of the loss of the identity. This body becomes anonymous.
Laurie Joly is an artist and a researcher born in 1984 in Lyon (France). She actually lives and works in Paris (France).

Lead by the interpretation of the term “Post-history” by Croatian theoretician Zarko Paic who talks of the end of ideology as the end of history, globalization era that begins after 1989 by the turnaround of the liberal-democratic revolutions in Europe and the world, through my work I research the principles of art theory that is connected to the term “Post-history” and through the artistic process research the term “Integral reality” by documenting it. The process of aestheticizing the world is taking place in post-history. The society is an aestheticized post-industrial society. It is driven by a scientific-technological development, and its ideological justification is provided by the post-modern culture of spectacle.

No words are needed. Photography is realted to the theater. The stage is the frame. The freezing dance pose is similar to photo deduction. The abstraction, paper handling and synthesis of sound and movement is the essence of this experimental piece.

Figures falling through space, time and memory, trapped in a limbo between feelings and reality. An animation about how we are constantly viewing the world around us through simulation constructed by mass media and accustomed to objectifying the body and identity, but when the idea of death suddenly becomes real to us, then we do not know how to deal with it.

The Journey of Water within Roses, 2014, 1:30
The animation starts with a floating petal and a road leading somewhere. The camera surfs through this rose like structure. Many water molecules transform into different forms during the journey. In the end, the camera dolly out to an overlook angle revealing that image consists of many similar rose structures. Then the camera dolly in the structure again. The journey is actually an endless cycle along the path.
Love is blind. We often lose our sensible mind when we fall in love. It seems like within the rose structure that we can only see some elements or those items. We don’t see the overall picture until we pull ourselves out of the situation. But we often got attracted in this fantastic illusion over and over again. If water has its soul, it knew the cycle will end where it begins. Somehow it still embarks its indefinite journey for the sake of love. It’s something magic, isn’t it?
Jerome Chia-Horng Lin was born in 1969, Taipei city. He was trained to be an artist since he was young by attending an art program in junior high school. He went to Pratt Institute, New York City at 1997 for his master study. He started to learn computer animation as his medium for creation since then.
