Comfort Station and The Logan Square International Film Series along with Moving Image Art ( presents shorts film program:

Imaginal Fiction

MIA is pleased to present Imaginal Fiction, a diverse selection of eight recent artists’ videos linked by a style of story telling that is akin to the process of active imagination. Each video uses enigmatic imagery and an oblique approach to create new, emotionally communicative mythologies.

Featuring work by: Cornelia Eichhorn, Giulia Grossmann, Shambhavi Kaul, Solimán López, Marcantonio Lunardi, Santiago Parres (EZO), Elliot Storey, WE (Kye Wilson- Helena Eflerová)

Ved'ma (2012) by Cornelia Eichhorn [France] is a 3-channel installation which follows three women simultaneously as they experience wildly dream-like situations rooted in Russian fairy-tales.

Native American (2012) by Giulia Grossmann [France] hovers on the edge between art film and documentary, following the inhabitants of a French resort where guests dress and behave as if they were living in the fabled American West.

21 Chitrakoot (2012) by Shambhavi Kaul [NC] is a landscape film which uses backdrops pulled from a mythological Indian television series to trace a narrative.

The Arrival (2013) by Solimán López [Spain] is an allegorical piece working with our collective relationship to communications technology.

The choir (2013) by Marcantonio Lunardi [Italy] features a group of choral singers who perform in a church with monitors over their faces which simultaneously broadcast images of their own heads singing the same piece.

Dove (2011) by Santiago Parres aka EZO [Spain] is a review and appropriation of a classic Spanish song.

ANXIETY (2013) by Elliot Storey [NY] plays with dancers, sculpture, and architecture to illustrate the emotional state.

Hunter/Hunted (2012) by WE (Kye Wilson and Helena Eflerová)[UK] is a two-channel installation, which follows the performance of Eflerová as both the huntress and the prey.
