Shanghype condensed!

  • China / 50min / Colour
  • Original Title : Shanghype condensed!


  Shanghype!, organized on the occasion of the art fair Artissima 2007, consisted of a selection of short movies and video art that testified to the development of Shanghai, a sort of celebration and exploration of the city by local and international artists. The screening was held in the Museum of Cinema in Turin, Italy. After that, Shanghype! traveled to Prague, where the works were shown at Futura Centre of Contemporary Art, and, finally, back to Shanghai when it was shown in the Creative Center of Bund18, on the waterfront/the Bund area, with the mirrored past facing the glittering new development of Pudong. For this latest edition of Shanghype! in the occasion of the World Film Festival of Bangkok , a condensed version is put in place with artists who participated to the activities and productions of BizArt and since 2007 of Arthub ( Shanghype! comes out of the fragments of the imagination from the selected artists, with whom we have been working on precise projects. Starting from the metaphorical place represented by China in its quintessence—Shanghai, a city that symbolizes the inevitable new order of the world—this program presents works that reveal different contents and sensibilities, all pushing the place of Shanghai in the imaginary. Shanghai’s aspiration and desire to again become the legendary place it once was, the need to be an international and modern China, and the power that Shanghai seeks in between local identity and globalization, are by degrees symbolized and investigated in Shanghype!   Great Era China / 2007 / 14min / ColourDirector: Zhang Ding Zhang Dings’s most recent film “Great Era” (2007) is a surrealistic Fellini-inspired voyage using Shanghai as its theatrical backdrop. The protagonist rides along staged tableaus with his bike (disguised as a horse) in scenes perfectly synchronized with the film’s sound score.Iahgnahs Onhcet China / 2009 / 5 min / ColourDirector: Speedismthe 3D animation film titled "IAHGNAHS ONHCET", which is Techno Shanghai spelled backwards, or should we say blackwards, as the doomed BLACK CELEBRATION that it might be; opposed to "the real" Shanghai, a copy of a copy of a copy, incestuous; mutating, decaying, as an urban themepark, the city of cities, the themepark of themeparks. But in this state of (architectural) being, it starts breathing again... The IAHGNAHS ONHCET story will be a fantasy come true of our Chinese adventures first depicted in the Doomdough project...A Silent StoryChina / 2005 / 13min / ColourDirector: Olivo Barbieri Olivo Barbieri (Italy 1954) first exhibited his work in 1978.
