PRESENTATION: ALL THE MISTAKES I’VE MADE

De kunstwereld barst van de events waarin kunstenaars een bloemlezing geven van alle hoogtepunten uit hun loopbaan tegenover een lichtelijk verveeld publiek. De Canadese filmmaker Daniel Cockburn draait het graag om. In zijn anti artist talk getiteld “All the Mistakes I’ve Made” doorgrondt hij zijn oeuvre in termen van esthetische en ideologische misstappen die hij heeft gemaakt. Aan de hand van die missers onderzoekt hij in hoeverre zijn onvermogen om goed te kunnen oordelen repre- sentatief is voor een negatieve tendens in hedendaagse kunst en cinema.

Hij zal zijn betoog ondersteunen met fragmenten uit zijn eigen werk en relevante voorbeelden uit het oeuvre van kunstenaars als Andrei Tarkovsky en Tim Burton.

OVER DANIEL COCKBURN 

Since 1999, writer, director and video-artists Daniel Cockburn has worked at the intersection between art, avant-garde cinema and narrative film. His first feature length film “You Are Here” won the Top Prize at the European Media Art Festival in Osnabrück this year. Through innovative narrative techniques and structuralist experiments he breaks everyday reality and brings to light the striking underlying codes with a nearly neurotic dose of self-reflection. His films and videos invite you to experience alternative dimensions: What if time ran backwards? What if everything in the world doubled in size overnight?

Daniel Cockburn’s short films and videos have been screened at over 80 festivals and galleries worldwide.
He is a subject of Mike Hoolboom’s recent book Practical Dreamers: Conversations With Movie Artists (Coach House Books, 2008), and a recipient of the K.M. Hunter Artists Award for Film & Video (2008). In 2009, Pleasure Dome presented an international tour of a retrospective of his short works, and he was one of three directors selected from a worldwide call for the DAAD’s six-month Berliner Künstlerprogramm filmmaker residency in Berlin.

Drawing from the precedents of contemporary artist/filmmakers such as Miranda July (Me And You And Everyone We Know), Cockburn’s first feature You Are Here takes the techniques and concepts he has honed over the last decade as a video artist with a penchant for narrative, and works them into a complex and unique cinematic structure. Screenings so far include Locarno, Toronto, Rotterdam, and Goteborg International Film Festivals. It won the Top Prize at the European Media Art Festival 2011 for “trend-setting work in media art”, received the Toronto Film Critics Association Jay Scott Prize for Emerging Talent, was called  “a major discovery” by the director of the Locarno Film Festival, and has been compared to the work of Charlie Kaufman, Jorge Luis Borges, and Philip K. Dick. In August 2011 You Are Here began its Canadian theatrical release in a held-over engagement at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto.
