15min – Unpacking film

A process or an act distortion can be the source for a new experiment through which artist succeeds to bring in question the status of the act itself and of the relation between a gallery space and the artistic production. The classical mode we think an artwork, an exhibition, the way we fixe it in a new medium in order to obtain certain features is surpassed. The mechanical connection artist-artwork regresses surprinsingly in a sort of anti-art. The double codification artist-space interaction becomes marked by a dissension between the image projected on the work in a finished (finite) exhibition and in a non-finished (finite) one. In this context the exhibition becomes a vain act. The experimental feature of this ante-act establishes the limits of the exposing act itself and opens the way through which we can theorize the primitive form of the ante-act. The explanatory scheme of “15min” project proposed by Barnabas Vetro has as a main issue the “upper limit” concept. You must know the context in which this video was produced so as to understand the film. The video performance is materialized in another space called gallery gallery. The video follows the experimental steps that in the end had metamorphosed the film. The ludic, the irony of the situation gave birth to this film ( the artist performed in the gallery space hanging on the pillars).The film emphisizes the loss of borders between documentation (ante-act) and artwork (the act) and stakes on the terms substitution, artist intervention into space evoking the instability
of the terms.

15min – Unpacking film

Descompunerea unui proces, a unui act poate constitui sursa unui nou experiment prin care artistul, delimitandu-se de tipul de interactiune pe care-l produce white cub-ul unei galerii, ajunge sa problematizeze statutul acesteia, al relatiei dintre spatiu si productia artistica. Clasicul mod de a gandi o lucrare, o expozitie, de a o amplasa intr-un nou mediu, de a-i crea anumite individualitati este depasit, raportul mecanic artist-lucrare regresand, intr-un mod incitant, intr-un tip de anti-arta. Dubla inscriptie a interactiunii artist-spatiu este marcata de un dezacord intre imaginea propusa de finitul unei expozitii si non-finitul lecturii imediat anteriore. In acest context, actul de a expune devine inutil. Caracterul experimental al acestui pre-act precizeaza limitele expunerii si deschide drumul teoretizarii statutul de forma primitiva a pre-actului. Schema explicativa a proiectului “15min” propus de Barnabas Vetro fluctueaza in jurul conceptului “upper limit”. Fimul 15min. nu ar putea fi inteles daca n-am reproduce contextul in care a fost realizat. Cadrul in care el se desfasoara este cel al unui spatiu de expunere (galeria galeria) in care artistul a fost invitat sa realizeze o lucrare. Filmul urmareste exact etapele anterioare finitului expozitional, pre-actul trasformandu-se intr-o actiune desfasurata in acest mediu. Jocul situatiei, auto-ironia a dat nastere unei lucrari in sine, prin care artistul investigheaza limita superioara a spatiului (stalpii galeriei). Filmul acentueaza pierderea granitei dintre documentatie (pre-act) si opera (act) si mizeaza pe substitutia termenilor, interventia in spatiu (devenita enunt dupa…) accentuand instabilitatea acestor termeni.
