24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Latency Contemplation 2
Natural textures and close-ups of various surfaces of soil, rocks and water are vertically sliced and rhythmically abstracted. Within the stream of images, this tour of the outer world becomes a way of experiencing the landscape and its transformations, in whose regularity we can find stability and inner peace.
“Cho´s internal visions and perception of the outer world come together in an abstract meditation on space, place and sound. Natural landscapes are pushed to the edge of abstraction through layering and other forms of manipulation.”
South Korean artist Seoungho Cho (1959) lives and works in New York. In his works, he manipulates simple everyday objects, scenes and landscapes to create poetic collages. His films once earned him a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation. The Ji.hlava IDFF has shown several of his films, including Buoy (2008), Stoned (2013), Blue Desert (2011) and the first part of his abstract work Latency, Contemplation 1 (2016).
