Underwater Desert

The Pacific Ocean has already received around 800 tons of radioactive material from the explosion at the Fukushima nuclear plant, under the silence of the media.
If the soul is a flame, how many candles should light up the oceans where nuclear waste is killing all living creatures?

„There is a silence where hath been no sound,
There is a silence where no sound may be,
In the cold grave – under the deep deep sea.“
These words by Thomas Hood are read by Shiri Malckin, over and over again, in her musical piece „Underwater Desert“ which forms the soundtrack of the video.

Anne Frank

„I blossomed as a woman at Prinsengracht 263 on 4 August 1944, when the Dutch Nazi police captured me shamelessly alive among the unmade beds.
My understanding of the farewell was exemplary: indulgent in the exact centre. Once past the nocturnal curve, the motivations of a new existence restored me to the world. History called. Could I fail to respond? I incorporated the infinitesimal part that was my lot and then sank with it amid monumental silences that never made the news and through which language was unlearned.“

All footage has been taken in Berlin (the city, the artist’s studio and the ex-concentration camp Sachsenhausen), except for the broken glass, which is in a hospital in the Netherlands, where the artist’s mother spent the last days of her life.

The video is part of the Shoah film Collection – Darkness Into Light Festival.

HearteartH, an international video art project curated by Sonia Laura Armaniaco and Maria Korporal

About the show:
HearteartH 2016
International Videoart Project curated by Sonia Laura Armaniaco and Maria Felix Korporal
From 13th January to 15th February 2017
only on VisualcontainerTV International Videoart WebTV

VisualcontainerTV welcome the second edition of HearteartH 2016 with a special compilation about 69 videos made by international artists about the symbolism of the two words HEART and EARTH. This videoart project is curated by Maria Korporal and Sonia Armaniaco.

HearteartH is a collective project for artists and media makers ideated by video artists Sonia Armaniaco and Maria Korporal.
The concept took life from these two interlocking words: HEART and EARTH. The strong symbolism of the two words, which are inevitably associated with life, has a strong pull. One is drawn into it. In the almost fateful dependence of these terms of one another, they seem inextricably linked together, even permanently, forever.
The assembly of Heart and Earth in the title, in one word, follows these substantive consequence. The nearly identical letters gives the impression of an anagram, and so the title gets something of a magic spell from which we can not escape. Due to the large H at the beginning and end of the word, the title sounds as a breath. Heartearth is so an unlimited ongoing project, as well as the topic has no end, “life goes on”, “the earth continues to rotate”. In this doubling of the word is a power that can give life.
As Life is always looking for additions and adjustments, Art as well has the force to open new viewpoints and new feelings about this peculiar theme; Art which is so close and yet so far away, and which can be so beautiful and at the same time frightening. Or Art could provide an opportunity to think about it.
