The 3rd International Video Art and Short
Film Festival «VAU-Fest» invites filmmakers and video artists to take part in
the video contest!


“VAU-Fest 2012” is dedicated to the
concept of “reflection” which nowadays has almost lost its original meaning and
is mostly perceived as a common phenomenon. But the elusive power of reflection
is what made mythical Narcissus neglect his life. Jacques Lacan’s concept
of the “mirror stage” describes the
formation of the Ego via the process of identification with one’s own specular
image. You may wonder what follows this stage. Perhaps it is the desire to look
over the edge of reflection, like Lewis Carroll’s Alice: “how nice it would be
if we could only get through into Looking-Glass House! I’m sure it’s got, oh!
such beautiful things in it!”


Mirror surfaces are the media that
instantly convert artists into the audience and vice versa. Due to reflections
in installations and performances Dan Graham communicates with his spectators.
Alexander Gnilitsky used the properties of distorting mirrors in video art and
paintings, experimenting with the perception of human body.


Some phenomena exist only when reflected.
Hidden things become visible through the prism of consciousness and the optical
mechanisms of camera. But can we truly see ourselves and the universe through these
reflections? Is the world behind the looking-glass really hidden somewhere? Or
is it just a subjective projection?


You can present your own video reflections
at “VAU-Fest 2012”
in one of the following nominations:


Experimental video

Video art

Video installation





deadline is
1, 2012


will be held on August 3-5 in
