Video Is The Only Constant Feb 3rd 2010: Giada Ghiringhelli
Body Without Organs, 2008, USA/Switzerland, 14'22
A body. Landscape of geometrical structures. It wants to be all what remains when you take everything away: a body of pure movement, intensities, speeds, energies and desires. It is without organs because nothing lives in it, everything moves on its surface, free from any kind of organization, as if it was the limit at which all the flows of the world converge and stream freely, the containing field of energy from which all possibilities develop.
Giada Ghiringhelli (b. 1981) is a Swiss new media artist and videomaker graduated with a MFA in Computer Art at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York and currently living in London. Her works explore the images in motion through the manipulation of space, time and movement, while employing light and the body as main compositional elements, creating artworks of rhythmic sensation and artificial reconstruction. Her videos have been exhibited internationally and some of them are currently distributed by the Canadian non-profit organization Video Out Distribution. She is also a co-founder of the art, video and film collective The Only Constant (London).
