News: ISLE 4224 just got selected by StigmArt10 2015 VideoBiennial Edition VIDEOFOCUS !
A full 7-page spread of interview coming up soon in the following month!
"ISLE 4224 has been selected for the Biennial Edition of VIDEOFOCUS, Stigmart10 Videobiennale, our special issue featuring videoartists and independent filmmakers.
We have been really impressed with your video series and we appreciate the way you explore the boundaries between memory and perception, and Your art is rich of references: your visual imagery seems to be close to Sergei Paradjanov's rarefied atmospheres and Romeo Castellucci's theatre. "
Like a lonley island of amnesia, each of us circles around the different selves, dancing endlessly, twirling the gorgeous and ethereal waltz.. Deep shadows of BLACK slowly burning its flame, while WHITE still stay in that silent sitting amidst a imaginary oceanic waves. Matter as substance, form as phantom, death-rebirth/reality-surreality of dubious humanity through a microscopic perspective. Gradually erasing or gently finding the deepest memories buried in the body, ghost dreams, spirit elves, nature life cycles thus appear one by one through familiar and unrecognizable-nameless songs, through fragments of storytelling, through movements to dance. The creative work belong to “MICRO: Homeland_Dreambody” series. The basis of developing work include three parts: Workshops Shooting videos Live Performance & exhibition The three part echoes the different timeline (past-present-future) of events and the invisible stories told circling infinitely as a mobius stripe.
ONSITE Festival Closing Performance, Taipei, Taiwan 混種閉幕演出
作品於2014在新加坡三個月的研究計劃中發展出來。 “兩人的晚餐”除了經由一對男女來探討人類行為舉止，也探討在現代電子發達的社會中人們距離和親密間隱藏的心理分微。總體而言，這是一個晚餐盛宴，一個在各種聲音中互動的聲響叢林，現場發生的事情超出平時表面上日常生活現象，但反映我們心靈深處的體驗。演出用現場傳感器(sensor)，歌，舞蹈動作，電子噪音，戲劇，和 live voice stream mix etc.做及時的創作演出。
The fairly new artist duo D&D had already made their mark in March 2014 at ICAS
(Institute of Contemporary Art Singapore) with their live performance, live mixing sounds,
movements, and vocalizations. The first D stands for Dennis Tan (Sg) who is a sound
installation artist and experimental musician. Dennis learnt his crafts in Germany for over
10 years, and have exhibited and performed in Europe and Asia in the last years. He will
incorporate his very own unique creation DIY Electronics in Dinner For Two. The other D
stands for Delphine Mei (Tw) who is a mixedmedia artist as well as experimental performer.
Living abroad in Europe and USA for over 10 years and still performing internationally, she has developed the concept, movements, and vocalizations of lucid languages together with Dennis Tan during her recent 3month residency in Singapore this year. "Dinner For Two" not only explores the nature of human behaviors but also investigates the underlying psychology between distance and intimacy in our modern time. Overall, it is a dinner feast, an interplay admist the forest of sounds, voices, songs, movements, theaters, live happenings that transit beyond your usual daily life.
