Vladimír Turner

Czech Republic


Vladimír Turner (1986) graduated from the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU) in audiovisual studies, then he studied at the Studio of Intermedia Confrontation at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. He has been to study stays in Buenos Aires, Valencia, Brisbane, Toulouse, Rotterdam and Australia. In his works, he oscillates between documentary film, art in public space and activism. He does not perceive these fields as divided, trying to combine them within a whole he labels as active civic life. His works from around the world can be seen in the streets, on film screens and in galleries.

The whole film consists of a single time-lapse scene flowing through time and landscape. In the final part of the video, the images very much remind of the inkblots of the Rorschach test.

Their aim was to contribute to discussion about media manipulation, hence the entire action was called “The Media Reality”. However in the end, it touched upon many other topics. Regardless of the action’s point, the artists were labeled dangerous hackers and digital pirates. The debate about media (in)dependence swiftly turned into a hoax accusation.

Alana Victoria Hunt is a curator in Aboriginal community art center. White employees work with Aboriginal artists who tell the history of the Aboriginal nation Giya through art. Their works are painted with natural paints extracted from the soil.

It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
