German artist Verena Stenke and Venetian artist, writer and curator Andrea Pagnes have been working together since 2006 as VestAndPage primarily in site-responsive Performance and video art. They research private and social spheres through fragility, transformation, vertigo, conflicts, infection, rejection and the idea of union. Their investigation leads to the essence: to reveal this vital impulse, which gives movement to the body, revealing mystery, being fruit of the knowledge of oneself and giving breath through art. Their performance-based movie trilogy "sinfin The Movie", produced in Antarctica, Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego, India and Kashmir between 2010-12, combines the ephemeral art form of Performance with the techniques of filmmaking, and analyses artistically the subject of Spheres. At each site, installations and performances are developed in situ, to finally form the three episodes of "sinfin The Movie" -- a film out of any filmic genre, an art project set between reality and vision to stimulate reflection on our common, conflictive contemporary situation.

Having been screened extensively on international festivals and exhibitions, at VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK, the complete movie trilogy will be presented for the first time in Italy. |
