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 "sin∞fin 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 "sin∞fin 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.
