Family Film Project Edition
Haarvöl releases, via Family Film Project Edition, “The Oblivion’s Wordless Knot“. In the artists’ very own words: “As always in our work, the abstraction of sounds is combined with the reality of the images that accompany them. And yet, far from any mutual illustrative character. Sounds that contribute decisively to the thickening of images and images that produce the necessary memory activation effect. An approximation to the “archival impulse” as an operative proposition.
A combinatorial of sounds and images that escape the levels of the time in which they are formatted. Analogical or digital according to the narrative needs present and, therefore, freed from the pressure of time. The results refer to an apparently paradoxical condition of healthy conviviality between an idea of obsolescence and the ability to risk. It will, moreover, be that resilient unity (to the dissolution of time, and hence of the contemplative and reflective possibility) that it will be possible to build what we call contemporaneity. That’s where we want to be and in the shape of rebellious times… again.”
