Como si Fuera Viento - Alex Reynolds (2018)
Every film could be said to be two films at once: that of the story being told, and a portrait of the people and place that make that story happen. With a group of friends who turn their holiday on the Galician coast into a shoot for a zombie movie, Como si Fuera Viento emerges as a celebration of friendship that is at once tender and horrific.
The work of artist and filmmaker Alex Reynolds explores our modes of relation and affection as they appear embodied in the cinematic language. Altering narrative structures, commands and rhythms in production, playing with the conventions of acting and storytelling as well as the role of the viewer, the artist defies our perception beyond the perimeter of the screen and the realm of images.

Harvest - Clèmence Lollia Hilaire (2023)
Sprache: Englisch / Niderländisch
Harvest brings back from the dead Arnacha, Betsey and Lucy; three young women who were key to the development of modern gynaecology in the nineteenth century Southern US. Experimental, non-consensual and anaesthetic-free surgeries conducted on the three teenagers held in bondage improved knowledge in this, then new, branch of medicine. While very little is known about them, the doctor performing these surgeries was propelled to fame and is still known as the father of modern gynaecology.
Based on personal experience and supported by research revealing links between nineteenth century black women’s bodies, modern gynaecology, pain thresholds and the manifestation of this genesis in contemporary medical practice; the work merges some of my documented attempts to diagnose the condition behind severe chronic pain, with a B-movie-like revenge from the three living dead teenagers in a fertility clinic.
In this clinic, their wombs are used as incubators for the culture of a crop - an extractive industry whose purpose is not clearly explained to them nor to the viewer.
Anarcha, born around 1828, is still in the waiting room of the clinic, making TikToks to kill time. Lucy is more accepting of her fate, while Betsey loses patience and initiates the murder of their captor. A toothless revenge, the making of which felt nonetheless for me more efficient than a pain reliever.
Clémence Lollia Hilaire (1995, Guadeloupe) is a visual artist based in Amsterdam, whose practice attempts to construct narratives where records of personal experience loosely coexist with more than human and historical and mythical protagonists. This manifests in the form of videos, sculptures and audio works.
