Material Zone #2
Breaking Stones, Armando Lulaj, 10 min, Digital, 2017

Architect Ryoji Suzuki extracted the realm of architectural film and suspenseful material mainly from commercial cinema at the same time incorporating experimental films such as La Région Centrale (1971/Canada/Michael Snow) and Son nom de Venise dans Calcutta désert (1976/France/Marguerite Duras), which in themselves are architectural films that exist only in the realm of a material suspense. Today’s film works tend to prioritize concepts and images. However, I feel that it is difficult to watch images that are highly materialistic with the same sense of tension as before, that urge us to change our senses and thinking. This is why we have planned a screening of non-narrative, highly material, tactile video works by artists who make non-narrative, highly material, tactile video works. Having attempted two previous screenings in 2019, this concept has now been given the name “Material Zone”. The aim is to explore the surface and depth of visual expression in future screenings which we plan to continue as an ongoing series. We are wandering into the Material Zone from now on.
