Prologue Of Signum Supra

director: Kryštof Brůha
original title: Prologue Of Signum Supra
country: Czech Republic
year: 2017
running time: 8 min.

synopsis

Signum Supra presents art as a shamanic ritual, as an aestheticized tool materializing principles that cannot be grasped by consciousness. Gripping structures that resemble rocks and landscape contours float in indeterminate space, serving as a springboard for contemplating the patterns of perception beyond the visible and the tangible.

biography

Kryštof Brůha (1990), a student at the New Media Studio, Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, explores the metaphysical plane of natural structures and phenomena, which he turns into aesthetic objects.

WhereWhoYouMeAre
The filmmaker explores the principles of movement while dreaming, and constructs them outside of the world of dreams by inserting graphic elements into images from the real world and simulating the space of a computer game in the virtual world. As she passes through these fictional worlds, the main character takes on a real as well as animated form.

Release on Command: The theme of group therapy and exercise in the works of contemporary artists.
Fascinations: Exprmntl.cz - Out of competitionThe common denominator of the videos is the theme of therapeutic or relaxation exercise, the goal of which is to release mental and physical tension. In each of these works, however, a critical sting can be observed, honed by the frustrations of man in today’s world – whether they’re related to politics, interpersonal relations, or pressures at work. The transfer of these videos from a gallery context into a cinema changes the viewers’ experiences: the viewer is confronted with the images more urgently, they feel the tension building and releasing, and hence empathy with those observed.The series of videos was developed in cooperation with the Jindřich Chalupecký Society. Curated by Tereza Jindrová (Jindřich Chalupecký Society) as part of her research while organizing the exhibition Healing, dedicated to the topic of health in contemporary art.Prezentovaná díla:Migra jóga / Migra YogaCzech Republic, 2012, 10 min.Director: Markéta MagidováPrvotní promluva / Primal SpeechUnited States, 2016, 12min.Director: Liz Magic LaserNěkdy se cítí skoro šťastně / Sometimes They Almost Feel HappyCzech Republic, 2015, 9 min.Director: Barbora KleinhamplováSpolečně 2017 / Together 2017United Kingdom, 2017, 10 min.Directors: Lucy Beech & Edward ThomassonDvě minuty / Two MinutesCzech Republic, 2016, 6 min.Director: Jakub Jansa

This experimental film collage makes use of documentary, fiction and animated film techniques. The fading traces of childhood are mixed with the folk culture of the Haná region, all of it shot on 16mm film. The filmmaker thus preserves her chosen motifs, which are slowly but irrevocably disappearing from the present day.

puddles, I don’t know
Dry ground, gravel, cracks in the asphalt, a look into a microscope, and a weather map as parts of an associative string based on the theme of waiting for the rain. The visual poem shows the soil in close-ups, adding new visual and semantic layers.

Life of Dreams
Lyricized images inspired by the world of dreams reflect the transition state between sleeping and waking. Ambiguous fragments of images, traces of experiences, and scenes from the unconscious together create a dream which slowly dissolves and all that remains are intangible clues and wakeful consciousness.

Edible Water Bottles
What if in one of the possible versions of the future, is was not only material objects that were scarce commodities - but also water. The film examines a situation in which water becomes a luxury commodity and gradually awakens in us the fear of its possible shortage, one which could take place in the near future. The emotional aspects of the film are underscored by the melancholic music of Never Sol. “The video Edible Water Bottles speaks using current advertising language, which points to its utter emptiness.” A. Horová

Moss Ball
In a world where wildlife loses its place, there is a need to replace it. The allusion to a trailer advertising the soft green moss ball breaks down the distance between the sterile human habitat and the sea plant popularized as an organic element of any home.

A Place
WIPP is a nuclear waste repository located in USA. Two teams of artists and scientists were called up in nineties of last century to answer a lot of questions which suddenly raised on the horizon. How to comunicate with next generations? How to explain to them what is stored beneath the ground in order to stop them digging further? How to pass the message through at least ten thousand years? The result of this think-tank are three reports which are the core of this movie.   “Building the Anticity as a heritage (a crazy version of the UNESCO heritage), our folly and dazzle caused by nuclear energy.” T. Rampula

Self-portrait as Doubt
Self-portrait as Doubt is a video collage-essay on the topic of a doubt and an uncertainty. In the film the author through an image and sound develops a contemplation about his own art praxis. An introspective work combines author's shots with appropriated material, a family archive, drawings and reflections to a form of a multi-layered collage.

Feeling My Own Body
Personal reflections by a woman with a distorted image of herself. The twin voiceover presents the stream of negative as well as comforting thoughts that run through the head of a women suffering from bulimia. The film thus reveals the changing nature and uncertainty of personal experience, while also exploring parts of the naked figure to share her beautiful yet despised body.

Transformations /  Vapors / Melanosis
An essay focusing on the topic of the exploitation of natural resources has as its primary theme water, showing its forms and changes in the chain of industry. The deep soundtrack is as dark as dirty water leaking from a power plant and, together with images of industry, evokes a sense of ecological anxiety.

It's me
The film examines the current trend of capturing our own image using photography or video, in which the boundary between our real and image Selves disappears at the moment we turn the camera lens on ourselves. The photograph or video is thus no longer just a visual representation, but a depiction of our true Self.
