Center for Curatorial Studies Presents

Monday, October 22, 2012 – Wednesday, October 24, 2012
CCS Bard Student Lounge
1:00 pm – 7:00 pm
The TV box set has modified and interfered in activities and habits of individuals, families and societies since its intrusion in our life, in the late 1920s. By activating the TV box set located in the CCS Bard Student Lounge, Interferences tests the ability of this medium to subvert the passive television viewer model and activate an unconscious teaching and learning method.

Media artworks from invited artists are shown on a loop, one at a time, for three consecutive days, from Monday to Wednesday, in the CCS Bard Student Lounge. The disruptive character of a TV box set in the student lounge is a strategy for Interferences to link artworks directly with the educative character of CCS Bard. Proposing an indirect but also quite persuasive way to interact with media artworks, Interferences questions what it means for an artwork to be perceived in this liminal space: a meeting point, a passage, and a studying area.

CCS Bard students Maria Montero Sierra and Marina Noronha are pleased to launch Interferences with Nosferatu in Flight (2011), byShirin Sabahi.

Shirin Sabahi's works range from video and slide projection installations to collages and artist books. In her artistic practice, she addresses interpretations and identifications encouraged by language and image in relation to different temporalities, employing translation and transformation and playing with formats and rituals of fabricating and perceiving art and in a broader sense meaning.

Born in 1984 Tehran, Sabahi lives and works in Copenhagen. She is a 2012-2013 film and new media fellow at Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart. Her work has been exhibited at 58th Oberhausen Short Film Festival; Aarhus Kunstbygning; Konsthall C, Stockholm and 7th Mercosul Biennial, Porto Alegre among others.
