EXPANDED CINEMA: Esther Urlus + Philipp Ilinskiy

EXPANDED CINEMA - is an art form, where the artist, exploring the limits of perception and sensation, consciously avoids conventional and narrative cinema, looking for new ways of self-expression. Most often these are the experiments with analog material, denial of sound and image synchronization, rhythmical nonconformity, visual transformations and multidisciplinary collaborations.
Multidisciplinary performance: experiment with analog found footage on four 16mm projectors from an artist from the Netherlands and eclectic electronic soundtrack about perception within live performance by Russian musician.
