    Sway – music video by Sir Moving Images!

    Sway from Sir Moving Images on Vimeo. We proudly present the music video Sway, the first single of Robin Block's debut album Comfort Zones. The song deals with the sense of out-of-placeness and the search for comfort in the most impossible environments. The video was shot in stop motion, partially in our hometown Amsterdam and partially in the spooky primal forests of El Hierro. The vulcanic El Hierro is the smallest of the Canarian Islands, known for its mystic landscapes and an undrinkable home-brewed spirit called 'aquardiente'. All props were made of recycled waste, for which we are much obliged to local garbage man and friend for life: Emerson. We'd like to stress that no sea creatures were hurt during the making of this music video. Music: Robin Block - 'Sway' (Art) direction: Renske Mijnheer More info on: www.robinblock.nl www.sirmovingimages.com

    Finding a New Order – concert, screenings & sound pieces

    finding2 For „Finding a New Order“, 13 artists reflect on existing structures, orders and systems but also strategies to change them. So far the project comprises a magazine, an exhibition, a website, a presentation at Zolder Museum Amsterdam and the residency/presentation at Goleb in October 2013. Thursday, 17 October Goleb, Burg. De Vlugtlaan 125, Amsterdam starting at 19:30 Programme: Andreas Kurz – concert, electronics ekw14,90 – live sound piece Karin Fisslthaler – film screening Renato Osoy – screening Doris Prlić – live sound piece The publication “Finding a New Order” will be on display at Goleb as well. Artists participating in “Finding a New Order”: ekw14,90 (AT/CH), Karin Fisslthaler (AT), Iva Supić Janković (HR/NL), Andreas Kurz (DE/AT), Daniel Ladnar/random people (DE), Lucas Norer (AT), Renato Osoy (GT), Doris Prlić (NL/AT), H.K. Rannversson (IS), Isfrid Angard Siljehaug (NO/NL) Initiated by Doris Prlić and Marlies Stöger About the “Finding a New Order“ No matter which political direction they are attributed to, European feature pages and contemporary philosophers seem to agree: Our current system has failed – be it political, financial or regarding the whole society. We need new ideas, new formations, a way out of the chaos. Should current financial and political systems be abolished, or do we simply need to punish those who find loopholes in the market? Censorship, rigid structures and mechanisation – if one searches for an enemy, it is never hard to find such a one. But where to find a solution? Artists, however, have been busy with these issues all along. Nevertheless, the art world is trapped in exploiting mechanisms and rigidity just as well. For Finding a New Order Marlies Stöger and Doris Prlić asked different artists and writers to reflect on existing structures or search for new ones. 13 artists followed the invitation and produced artworks or texts for this project. The contributions were published on a website, in a magazine and were finally be presented at an exhibition and this presentation at Goleb. The artworks however are not restricted to large socio-political topics, perhaps small alterations can change the big picture even better after all.
