In contribution to the great selection of sculptures by internationally acclaimed artists, the urban screen Contemporary Art Screen Zuidas forms the final sculpture as a stage for the moving image within the visual arts. In close collaboration with Jan Cremer, CASZUIDAS will present unique 'premieres' of three Polavision films, which will be accompanied by three recent video works from artists working in various art disciplines.
Being a painter, Jan Cremer captured the everyday on his Polavision Photo Tapes – the self-developing 8mm film cassette by Polaroid – using them as sketches for his paintings and for the 'preservation' of cherished landscapes. The resulting 8mm art movies have only been played for a select New York in- crowd in the eighties on the Polavision Projector, the system never made it through the eighties.
We're proud and excited to be able to show three of these reels in public space, joined by three works from artists working with moving image, performance, choreography and design. Watch forty elderly dancers perform a flash mob line dance on Dam Square in Diamond Dancers. In Melvin The Movie, Melvin the Machine is in search for his 'Super Moment'. See the urban skyline of Frankfurt am Main mirrored in the fantastically absurd celery and cabbage performance Vertical Distraction.
