The winner of the second year of the Slovak competition of the moving image – Other Visions SK 2017– is Dominika Koššová with her video With Valie. The award ceremony took place on Friday, 23 February 2018 at the Film Festival and Seminar 4 Elements in Banská Štiavnica.
Last year’s curator, Eva Filová, selected the eight finalists who went on to the competition selection. The winner was selected by an expert jury consisting of Zuzana Bodnárová (SK), Ivana Laučíková (SK) and Jiří Neděla (CZ).
The second year of the Slovak competition of the moving image – Other Visions SK 2017 – was organised in cooperation with Kinečko magazine and Film Festival and Seminar 4 Elements. The block of eight competition videos Other Visions SK 2017 will be presented in Slovakia during 2018.
Who would not know the Austrian visual artist Valie EXPORT and her body configurations from the 1970s, in which she related her own body to parts of urban architecture? As a “google user”, Dominika Koššová appropriates the selected figures, frees them from their original feminist context (the submissive female body is subordinated to dominantly male space) and through them she explores the space of the Internet interface. The video is part of a free triptych: With Marina (Abramović) and With Bruce (Nauman).
