by Oriol Sánchez

Profanations is a three-channel video work consisting in appropriation and reconstrucion of images and sequences of films by Jules Marey, Pudovkin, Kirsanoff, Eisenstein, Romero, Halperin, Kulechov… from which a series of little, miniature micro-stories have been created. These stories have been organized according to Campanas de Luz (Light Bells), a music composition by Joan Riera Robusté. Profanations emerges from an interest in exploring relashionships between sound and image with narratives and abstraction, playing with the (dis)articulation found in film narratives; creating a rupture within narrative and representation.” (Oriol Sánchez)

TRAYECTO(S) 1 & 2 + 8.19MIN

by Isaac Gimeno

TRAYECTO 1.2, TRAYECTO(s)(2) and 8,19MIN are 3 video-installation works that look at different aspects of time and the so-called velocity phenomenon associated to new technologies and how they interfere in everyday life. “In these distances… there aren’t destinies as which to arrive. They are the consequence of a videographic experimentation through velocity. Velocity is not a phenomenon, but a relationship between phenomena subject to the laws of relativity. In TRAYECTO(S), relativity is understood as a circular medium between object and subject, which is reflected in a perceptual setting created with a spinning video camera.” (Isaac Gimeno)

Saturday 14th June

7pm Thisisnotashop


by Reivaj Yudato

Abismo Próximo is a multi-channel video-installation work that explores notions of montage as incarnation and metamorphosis from a complex perspective that contemplates historical visual representation in Christian imagery, television and cinema. “This work demonstrates that the same principle applies in all television broadcasts, whether if it is a football match or war news. Both are simultaneously abysmal (distant) and close (visible)”. (Celeste Araújo)

Sunday 15th June

9pm Thisisnotashop (weather dependent)


Cinema…Corpus vs Cerebrum is an on-going expanded cinema project by Esperanza Collado consisting in a live film performance in collaboration with all artists and filmmakers present in Márgenes: Experimento y Praxis. CCC is a site-specific work; an arrangement of four concurrent 16mm/Super8 film projectors in the public space, opposite to Thisisnotashop. The intention is to create a dialogue between the internal and external boundaries of the gallery -and the periodical presence of the Luas (tram) interfering the projection beam-. A series of direct improvised manipulations during the projection event, -all celluloid used is found-footage-, will interact with live music by Irish composer Neil O’Connor aka Somadrone and his modular analogue synthesizers.

19th-25th June

FOG – Marta Fernández Calvo

Opening and presentation:

Thursday 18th June, 7pm

The Fog is coming…

Fog is a participatory artistic intervention work intended to be developed in the landscape. The large fog banks that move across the landscape are the actual starting point of this project. The artist, Marta Fernández Calvo, has created a “portable fog kit” from different photographs of fog taken in Dolomitas (Italy). The “kit” will be presented to Dublin inhabitants at a meeting and presentation on the 18th of June at This is Not a Shop, in which people will be invited to book Fog for its installation during one day in whatever public space they require (btw June 19-26). All request forms to install Fog in the city will be used by the artist to construct a calendar containing the dates and locations of Fog in Dublin. This process will be shown daily in the gallery, which will become a documentation base of accumulative work generated by Fog.

Fog functions according to the temporal availability of the audience, and, as real fog, moves in the landscape, appearing and disappearing eventually. This work, therefore, will be shown exclusively if required directly by Dublin inhabitants.

To book FOG contact Esperanza at textoflight@gmail.com or call 0872768794

At the National Gallery of Ireland….

Film-program by Albert Alcoz

Countryside and urban landscapes interchange prominence in all the works presented in this program, which combines structures that experiment formally with Super8 film practices, such as the frame-by -frame technique, and other procedures which nature or format addresses forms of documentary, diary and essay in filmmaking.

Friday 13th June

4pm National Gallery


Film by Albert Alcoz

Albert Alcoz is a writer, artist, and filmmaker from Barcelona working mainly on Super8. Appropriation or object trouvé, direct work on the surface of the filmstrip, and other techniques that spoil the emulsion and distort the original found footage make his work definable as materialist filmmaking. One of his most recent films, Forth and Back and Forth was made with one of the most influential experimental filmmakers of all times, Michael Snow.

Farce Sensationelle! (Laida Lertxundi)

Saturday 14th June

4pm National Gallery


Film-program by Antoni Pinent

The contemporary moving-image works presented in this program share the research, reformulation, and destruction of different aspects that define formally and politically the so-called cinematographic language. Notions that have preoccupied avant-garde filmmaking at large, such as montage, image manipulation techniques, the essence of light,decontextualization, agitation, activism, etc., become elements of exploration of the specificity of the medium and a particular prismatic view of the cinematic) experiment through this works.

    This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader amused.

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to
    start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

    You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would by no means understand.

    It kind of feels too complicated and very extensive for
    me. I am having a look ahead to your next publish, I
    will attempt to get the hold of it!
