85 web-based artists remake John Berger’s historic documentary ‘Ways of Seeing’ (1972) one minute at a time. Originally commissioned by The One Minutes, at Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam and compiled by Lorna Mills, the episodes present a sequence of 3D renderings, filmic remixes, videos and webcam performances which subvert the tropes of art history in an entertaining and overwhelming way.
The screening is introduced by Julia van Mourik, director of The One Minutes and followed by a Q&A between Daniel Rourke, and Lorna Mills via Skype.
Lorna Mills has actively exhibited her work internationally in both solo and group exhibitions since the early 1990’s. Her practice has included obsessive Ilfochrome printing, obsessive painting, obsessive super 8 film & video, and obsessive on-line animated GIFs incorporated into restrained off-line installation work.
She has also co-curated monthly group animated GIF projections with Rea McNamara for the Sheroes performance series in Toronto, a group GIF projection event When Analog Was Periodical in Berlin co-curated with Anthony Antonellis, and a touring four person GIF installation, :::Zip The Bright:::, that originated at Trinity Square Video in Toronto.
In June 2013, Mills opened a solo exhibition 'The Axis of Something' at TRANSFER, her work was exhibited by the gallery at the Moving Image Art Fair NYC in March 2014, and her second solo show for TRANSFER is currently in development for 2015. Her most recent solo project was Ungentrified a large GIF projection installation at OCADU in Toronto for Nuit Blanche.
Julia van Mourik is Director of The One Minutes, a place for artists to experiment, to produce and to present within the inexorable limit of 60 seconds, hosted by Sandberg Instituut, Masters of Art and Design in Amsterdam (NL) since 2014 and she is director of the Lost & Found programme, where artists show material that doesn’t fit comfortably into regular gallery contexts, that seems out of place since 2004. She is also adviser to the to the Dutch Cultural Media Fund, promoting the development and production of high-quality artistic programmes by the national public broadcasting corporations. Since 1999, she has produced visual arts projects and has composed programmes and publications, exploring new possibilities for presenting contemporary art and the moving image.
Daniel Rourke is a writer, researcher, educator and artist whose work is concerned with re-articulating the digital in light of current debates surrounding posthumanism. He is currently writing a PhD in Art (and writing) Practice at Goldsmiths, University of London. His writing can be found on Rhizome.org and Furtherfield.org.
