l 3 DOUBLE DUTCH
3 Holland, land of market gardens, 3 liberal attitudes to drugs and a highly developed Video Art scene has now l found itself a brief cultural outpost in Edinburgh’s Collective Gallery. llere, i the video installations of Jaap de . .longe, Justin Bennett and Frits Maats E are on display. Whether these three salient features t of the Netherlands are related may just be a journalistic excuse to impose an unusual opening sentence, but suffice to say that de Jonge’s work 3 Horizon ‘consists of a ‘train’, running l back and forth along the wall at eye 3 level. The train is an lCD monitor j which functions as a window, through j which can be seen a digitalised panorama derived from shots made of Mars from an unmanned spacecraft.’ To the layman its just this sort of description that makes Video Art synonymous with Installed Wierdness. This isn’t surprising given that the medium had it’s birth pangs back in the 60’s, when Korean artist llan June I Paik first set the tape rolling with the ; first Sony video recorder. llardly surprising either that Video Art has constantly been evolving on a radical, ‘ experimental edge. This ancestry is of a markedly é different tradition to that of
mainstream animation and cinema and this exhibition runs alongside the
Edinburgh Fringe Film and Video Festival. The Festival’s remit is to attempt to broaden the scope of the programme of five days of film and video by showing work which doesn’t
. necessarily gain screenings in the
conventional context of cinema or TV.
‘Gur aim is to promote a whole range of artistic practices that artists aren’t seeing in Scotland,’ claims the messianic Chris Byrne, festival co- ordinator.
Video Art currently sits in an uncomfortable position between the visual arts and the film and video scene. But the contradictions inherent
f in using a time-based medium - it only :’ exists if you play it - to create a piece . of art which can only be given value if
it’s made into an object and then sold to a gallery are also very seductive. Byrne claims it is these challenges
Q which have drawn many of the more
interesting conceptual artists to the
Interesting or just inscrutable? Or is that just yet another contradiction? Mmm. (Stephen Chester)
