        Video Art Event, Vth edition


*White Canvas*

White Canvas: video art project that will be held within the halls of 
the former military garrison of Oradea; at present, the building is to 
be rearranged to shelter the collections of the Tarii Crisurilor Museum. 
The venue was chosen due to its neutrality as a basis for the curatorial 
concept: the support, the fundament and the context where the artistic 
act sets and develops itself.
In its attempt to move from the pictural canvas to the profecting 
screen, the concept of White Canvas aims at applying a new frame: the 
idea of film-painting.
- The sequential and temporal dimension of the film image will be 
borrowed from the static feature of the painting ( and vice versa).
- The support issue brings along the problem of intensifying the virtual 
artistic content that will populate the screen as a consequence to the 
assumed artistic decision; this will endow the artistic act with an 
apparently unlimited freedom but will lso appeal to both abstract and 
sensorial reasoning.
-Video art as art manifesto explores the real mostly in a critical way, 
with its own means; it has as basic static support the place of the 
artist as related to the artistic object.
- Thus, the support issue brings into discussion the issue of the 
context of the artist's perspective, a fact that leads to the 
introspective aspect of questioning the creative act. The virtual space, 
the white space of innocence, perfection, honesty, purity, neutrality, 
light and exactness will be contaminated by the personal aesthetic 
experiences expressed through his perspective.
The reason for discussing the concept of White Canvas is to propose 
video images that will open a whole new interrogative horizon for the 
viewer and where he stands in relation with the video art and the world 
to which this art is related.
White Canvas video art event will be presented from 15 th to 16 th May
