Limerence

Shower scenes in movies take us to the cinema’s heart of strangeness – like sex scenes, they are a performance of intimacy, of private moments that usually are shielded from the public. We delectate over the bodies of stars, these familiar strangers.

Valea Jiului-notes

Children of the Jiu Valley are familiar with roads. Theirs but especially those of the adults. Roads through the tunnel, the mountains or the Valley. All the roads seem made to leave as well as to return. The parents of these children, once the inhabitants of an old industrial area of Romania, take now long roads to reach the West, wherever they may find work. They return too seldomly. They send money. Their children are a lot like orphans. Many of them experience depression. Some choose to take the fatal road to Paradise or Hell. Maybe with the hope of coming back to a kinder vale.

Magnificent obsession

It is one of the formulations of the political and social issues of our time: the relationship between the individual and community or society, and how the individual can live in the latter's reality. Zhong Su's artwork, set in contemporary China, portrays this as the tale of an individual's search for knowledge and transcendence by displaying the reality he faces in a kaleidoscope of three synoptic perspectives. It starts as a "landscape" of the present and the technical, social, socialist-capitalist reality as an underwater world. It continues in the "passions", talking of social desires, goals and dogmas, before "history" captures the community through the ages and contexts in further stunning images.
