Faculty Featured in A Sweet Taste of Conspiracy
September 22, 2018
Alejandra Salinas and Aeron Bergman, Chair of the Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies have work in A Sweet Taste of Conspiracy at FUEGO, Mexico City September 22 and 23.
A Sweet Taste of Conspiracy is a screenings program curated by Anaïs Lepage for the international curatorial platform, Heiwata, and features international artists for whom the video extends or includes a pictorial, sculptural, performative or poetic practice. Inspired by genre cinema, science fiction, and romantic TV show imagery, in addition to the language of advertising, media and internet culture, their videos stem from experimentation of forms and a hybridization of materials and influences. Using diversion and subversion of cultural codes, the films presented create alternative narratives driven by a secret agreement. They interpret tales, myths, ancestral knowledge and folklore of the plot within an emotional or amusing way. Tacit connections are developed between a global market economy and an underground animism; between spiritualities and the use of technologies, between networks and plant or animal intelligences. As the signs spread, doubt gradually appears in stories previously told.
The program features work by Monira Al Qadiri, Korakrit Arunanondchai, Madison Bycroft, Sol Calero & Dafna Maimon, Julien Creuzet, Pauline Curnier Jardin, Eric Giraudet de Boudemange, Lucile Littot, Pierre Paulin, Réjean Peytavin & Alice Bertrand, Piscine with Aeron Bergman & Alejandra Salinas, and Tabita Rezaire.
