Observing Particles in Space

Sunday 10 November 2019, 7 pm

José A. Sistiaga, 'Impressions en haute atmosphère', 1989

This selection gathers together a series of cinematographic works whose aesthetics discloses different discursive ways to approach outer space. The screening unfolds into three abstract and evocative animations around the cosmos, and three documentations focusing on comets, the moon or the Milky Way. While triggering dialogue between the film inscriptions by Lye, the visual and pictorial music of Sistiaga, the astral multiplications of Szlam, the meteoric speculation of Stratman, the Martian imagery of Darroll and the hypnotic celestial filming of Liotta, this programme ultimately unfolds into a combination of non-galactic figuration and interstellar hyperrealism.
