Objects! - Teaser
Dir Piotr Urbaniec
2014
Poland
The video is part of a spatial installation included in my work Objekty-wizm (Object-ivism). I'm interested in everyday objects and searching for new constellations, meanings and functions of known objects. I place objects in absurd physical relationships and processes. This video documentation presents the results (successes and failures). I registered the processes in which the objects are involved, contrary to their purpose. My goal is to challenge the surrounding reality. It is a kind of rebellion, creation of an abstract utopia, in which nonsense and noise dominate the social order, memory and habit.

2. Izabela Sitarska, Pomiędzy, 2014, Poland, 00:08:28
 
 
Pomiędzy (In-between) is a video work that represents memory. Its structure reflects the search for flashbacks hidden deep in one’s mind. Despite being filmed between the summer and fall of 2014 (i.e. fairly recently), the author already witnessed certain revaluation: sentimental scenes (connected with the author’s ancestry) became a universal representation of periodicity and fear of the order of nature. The main focus is on the relationship with a specific place that becomes a universal place in the world. It is an immersion in surrealistic imaginary memories.
 
Izabela Sitarska (born 1992) is currently studying Mixed Media at the Faculty of Multimedia Communications at the University of Fine Arts in Poznan. Her works explore the possibilities of the human psyche, its defects and their impact on the environment, absurd and syncretism of thinking. She experiments with form, often using video art, performance art, audio, the written word, collage and animation. Her selected exhibitions include: Pack Design Fair (Milan), Draw & Go (Mona Inner Spaces, Poznań), Rysopis (Wro Center, Wrocław).
 
3. Urszula Pieregończuk, Parabellum Luger, 2014, Poland, 00:11:39
 
 
Parabellum Luger is a quasi-documentary movie made in 2014 using found footage. The subject of the film is Georg von Luger and his invention: the 9mm Parabellum pistol, which was the first mass-produced gun officially adopted in the military service. In the years 1908–42, it was the first service pistol of the German army. We can retrace the gun’s journey from a utilitarian object to a symbolic artefact, which has already lost its primary war context.
The soundtrack plays a key role in the movie: the British English voiceover and instrumental music in the background create a film atmosphere that can be compared to the excitement and joy of the beginning of the 20th century.
 
Urszula Pieregończuk  was born in 1984 in Pionki.
From 1999 to 2005 she studied in J. Szermentowski`s arts high school in Kielce.
She graduated Maria Currie Skłodowska university in Lublin in 2011.

In 2011 she was a finalist off Samsung Art Master and got second award and public award for film “Russian romance”.
Since 2008 she making films which are oscillate under borderline of theatre and cinematography. She is director , screenwriter, editor, producer, scenographer and make-up artist in her film.

  • Jury of 2nd stage: Mikołaj Trzaska
    Mikołaj Trzaska – born in Gdańsk, saxophonist, bass clarinetist and composer, grew out of yass – a socio-artistic movement that in the 80-ties/ 90-ties opposed the rigidity of Polish jazz environment. Together with Tymon Tymański and a group of other musicians free from any doctrine they changed the image of Polish jazz music. Trzaska was the co-founder of the most important yass group – legendary Miłość and of as creative Łoskot. Although the impetus of yass faded away many years ago he became the leader of national improvisation scene. After the yass period he recorded a few concentrated and quiet albums with the section of Oleś brothers. He also accompanied poets – Świetlicki and Andrukhovych, he created muical – literary projects with Andrzej Stasiuk.
    Today he is the leader of international trio Volumen and the member of among others Resonance of Ken Vandermark, Magic – Joe McPhee or Shofar trio with Raphael Rogiński and Macio Moretti – playing Jewish music. But above all he realizes himself in the radical contemporary free jazz. He travels around the world cooperating with personalities of world improvisation among others with Peter Brötzmann, Joe McPhee, Ken Vandermak, Peter Friis Nielsen, Clementine Gasser, Pete Ole Jorgensen, Michael Zerang, Franz Houtzinger, Jay Rosen, Domik Duval, Mark Sanders. He has recorded around thirty albums.
