Past Future

During an art residency (VIDEOFORMES’ Digital Artist Residency) in an agricultural high school at Yssingeaux, in the south of Auvergne (France), the Brazilian artist Kika Nicolela developed a project in collaboration with a group of students. Through different propositions, in which the camera is sometimes controlled by the artist, sometimes at the hands of these youngsters, a large amount of video was produced, a material that the artist did not touch for six years.
The film PAST FUTURE builds, simultaneously, a portrait of these teenagers – often anguished about their future – and a self portrait of the artist in a deep personal crisis, having as a background the rigorous winter and the landscape of Auvergne.

All calls now extended to the 15th of May 2024!
