ShoutOUT!:Substation Presents "HUMAN FRAMES"

The Substation and Lowave are proud to present Human Frames, happening from 17th to 20th February 2011 at The Substation theatre.

Human Frames ( presents a series of ten film programmes examining the human condition through experimental film and video art. Comprising both contemporary and archive images from across Asia and Europe, this project is inspired by the ancient theory of humoralism as a framework for analysing certain aspects of the human character.

Focusing on ten emotional states – melancholy, fear, anger, fanaticism, isolation, madness, desire, impermanence and mono no aware – Human Frames depicts the timeless and universal panoply of human tempers that lay beyond national, social and cultural affiliations. Working with artists and curators from both Asia and Europe, Human Frames spans disparate practices and processes and charts ideological convergences and divergences alike.

Films and artworks are selected by independent guest curators, such as Adam Pugh (UK), Masayo Kajimura (Germany/Japan), Victric Thng (Singapore) and artistic consultant François Michaud (France). This event is presented by Lowave (France), co-presented by The Substation Moving Images and Supported by the Asia-Europe Foundation, Singapore.

Human Frames is presented by Silke Schmickl and Stéphane Gérard from Lowave in Paris. Lowave is an independent film label founded in 2002 to promote experimental film and contemporary video art and make them accessible beyond the film festival and gallery circuit. They will both be present during this period for post screening discussions.
