Extra Dry, Anna Valeria Borsari

Peep-Hole Milan

Via Stilicone 10, 20154 Milano, Italia

19th July - 17th October 2016




Anna Valeria Borsari presents Il testimone, 1976-77; Autoritratto in una stanza, 1977 and Attraversarsi, 1977

Il testimone (The Witness) 8mm film transferred to video, 1976-77, 3’33” The artist walks down a portico and makes a point-of-view shot of what she sees: a seated man, initially at a distance, gradually gets closer. He has dark glasses, and for an instant the artist is reflected in their lenses as she shoots, asking him to bear witness to having seen her.


Autoritratto in una stanza (Self-Portrait in a Room) video, 1977, 10’03”. Courtesy of the artist and Archivio Galleria del Cavallino. The artist’s intention to make her self-portrait is denied during the making of the work itself: a study of her body, through pencil tracings left on the walls, is followed by the study of the room. From the view of earth left intact on the floor, the image shifts to the sparking of the water of the Grand Canal.


Attraversarsi (Crossing Oneself) Slideshow of photographs transferred to digital, 1977, 1’05” The artist walks down a long portico, while at the two ends two photographers simultaneously make one photo every seven seconds. The editing of the two sequences underlines the central moment in which Anna Valeria Borsari, equidistant from the two vantage points, “crosses herself.”


Anna Valeria Borsari was born in Bazzano (Bologna) in 1943; she lives and works in Milan.

Extra Dry, Luca Maria Patella

Peep-Hole Milan

Via Stilicone 10, 20154 Milano, Italia

19th April - 18th July 2016




Luca Maria Patella presents Grammatica dissolvente – Gazzùff! Avventure & cultura, 1974-75.

Among the first to experiment with multimedia and the filmic possibilities of videotape, Luca Maria Patella presents a single work here. It can be traced back to what the artist calls “self-documentations in progress,” featuring the simultaneous presence of different media. The four sequences of which it is composed constitute a sort of anthology of practices: an excerpt from the unfinished film Lu’ capa tella (16mm, 1972); documents taken from the Gazzette Ufficiali (1972-1974) and the performances done at Galleria L’Attico in Rome in those years; the “dissolving grammar,” the fade in-out projection of a series of word games and images using a machine invented by the artist; and, finally, the film of a performance in which Patella writes a series of thoughts on the role of the artist and art in society on a luminous slate.

This piece was recovered and digitised by REWINDItalia.

REWIND| British Artists' Video in the 1970s & 1980s

Careof DOCVA, Milano

Fabbrica del Vapore, via Procaccini 4, Milano


6 novembre - 1 dicembre 2012

da martedì a sabato dalle 15.00 alle 19.00


Careof, in collaborazione con Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design dell’Università di Dundee (Scozia), presenta REWIND British Artists' Video in the 1970s & 1980s, un progetto di ricerca sviluppato dal 2004 al 2010 e volto allo studio e all’archiviazione della videoarte britannica, adesso confluito nell’omonima pubblicazione a cura di Sean Cubitt e Stephen Partridge (John Libbey Publishing, 2012).

REWIND nasce con l’intento di colmare il ritardo nella conoscenza storica dell’arte elettronica e multimediale nel Regno Unito, con particolare attenzione alla produzione degli anni ’70 e 80’. Allo studio delle opere REWIND ha associato un’intensa attività di conservazione e restauro, nella consapevolezza che la natura effimera di molti di questi lavori e le condizioni tecniche insufficienti avrebbero portato presto alla perdita di importanti risorse e fonti di studio. REWIND ha dunque rimasterizzato e archiviato più di 450 opere monocanale e installazioni su Digital Betacam e file di alta qualità su dischi rigidi. I nuovi master sono stati poi depositati presso University of Dundee e Scottish Screen Archive (National Libraries of Scotland). Dai master sono state realizzate copie di visione che costituiscono la base per REWIND| Artists’ Video Collection, un archivio consultabile per ricerche presso Visual Research Centre, Dundee Contemporary Arts e Central St Martins College of Art & Design, University of the Arts London. A Milano, Careof, in occasione della presentazione del progetto presenta una selezione di opere dell’archivio di David Critchley, Peter Donebauer, Duvet Brothers, John Latham, Stephen Partridge, Elaine Shemilt.

A questo si è unita un’importante attività di archiviazione di interviste, registrazioni, testi critici, testimonianze orali, immagini e dati tecnici, con l’intento di raccogliere e contestualizzare i dati riguardanti i protagonisti, le attività, le istituzioni e gli interventi atti a delineare una storia della video arte in Gran Bretagna. I materiali sono accessibili attraverso il database online www.rewind.ac.uk.

Dal progetto è risultato un altro importante strumento di ricerca, REWIND + PLAY un cofanetto contenente una selezione di opere chiave dei decenni in oggetto, dai primi esperimenti concettuali alle opere che si confrontano con il mondo della televisione. Il dvd, pubblicato in collaborazione con LUX, contiene 24 video di John Adams, Peter Anderson, Kevin Atherton, Ian Bourn, Ian Breakwell, David Critchley, Peter Donebauer, Catherine Elwes, Judith Goddard, David Hall, Mick Hartney, Brian Hoey / Wendy Brown, Madelon Hooykaas / Elsa Stansfield, Tina Keane, Tamara Krikorian, Mike Leggett, Stephen Littman, Stuart Marshall, Chris Meigh-Andrews / Gabrielle Bown, Marcelline Mori, Stephen Partridge, Clive Richardson e Tony Sinden.

a cura di Stephen Partridge e Adam Lockhart

martedì 6 novembre 2012 alle ore 18.30 presentazione del progetto e inaugurazione


La pubblicazione REWIND British Artists' Video in the 1970s & 1980s raccoglie contributi di Sean Cubitt, Grahame Weinbren, Yvonne Spielmann, Malcolm Dickson, Stephen Partridge, Adam Lockhart, Jackie Hatfield, Emile Shemilt, Mike Leggett e Brian Winston.


Simposio REWINDItalia: Videoart in Italy 1968-1982

MACRO - Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Roma


19 e 20 aprile 2012

ore 9.30-13.30; 15.00-18.00


Il Gruppo di ricerca REWINDItalia ha il piacere di annunciare il suo primo Simposio dal titolo REWINDItalia: Videoart in Italy 1968-1982 che si terrà a Roma nelle giornate del 19 e 20 aprile 2012 presso il MACRO - Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Roma con il patrocinio del Di.Co.Spe Dipartimento Comunicazione e Spettacolo - Università Roma Tre e Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design - Universita’ di Dundee (Scozia, GB).


Il Progetto di ricerca REWINDItalia muove dalla consapevolezza dell’importanza della sperimentazione del video in Italia sin dai suoi esordi e punta a rinnovare l’interesse e l’attenzione internazionale per la videoarte italiana negli anni Settanta e Ottanta, per i suoi artisti e per i suoi studiosi riportando sotto i riflettori internazionali queste eccellenze. Il Convegno, che si pone come “evento di ricerca”, prenderà in esame i fondamentali sviluppi del primo quindicennio di sperimentazione del video in Italia (1968-1982) attraverso alcuni focus e filoni di studio. Includerà la partecipazione dei pionieri che hanno animato la ricerca, la produzione e il dibattito in quegli anni e la più recente generazione di critici, curatori e storici dell’arte e dei media, italiani e stranieri, che si occupano da lungo tempo dell’argomento.


Il convegno vedrà la partecipazione di artisti (Claudio Ambrosini, Theo Eshetu, Luca Maria Patella, Federica Marangoni, Luigi Ontani, Michele Sambin, Mario Sasso, Guido Sartorelli, Luigi Viola), curatori (Maria Alicata, Stuart Comer, Deirdre McKenna), accademici, critici e storici dell’arte e teorici dei media (Renato Barilli, Achille Bonito Oliva, Silvia Bordini, Valentino Catricalà, Eleonora Charans, Sean Cubitt, Giorgio De Vincenti, Bruno Di Marino, Lia Durante, Francesca Gallo, Marco Maria Gazzano, Luciano Giaccari, Laura Leuzzi, Angela Madesani, Dino Marangon, Anna Mazzanti, Silvia Moretti, Anna Notaro, Steve Partridge, Anne Marie Sauzeau, Lorenzo Taiuti), giornalisti (Mario de Candia), registi (Carlo Quartucci), performer (Carla Tatò), operatori (Carlo Ansaloni, Angelo Bacci) al fine di animare una riflessione organica e interdisciplinare, promuovendo un dibattito aperto e fruttuoso. Ingresso libero.



The research project REWINDItalia will hold its first Symposium ‘REWINDItalia: Videoart in Italy 1968-1982’ in Rome on April19th-20th 2012 at MACRO – Museum of Contemporary Art. The research project is funded by the AHRC and the event is supported by the Di.Co.Spe, the Department of Communication & Spectacle of University Roma Three and DJCAD, University of Dundee.


REWINDItalia stems from an awareness of the importance of the experimental video work produced in Italy in the ‘70s and 80’s and aims to renew the international interest on Italian artists, their practice and related academic scholarship.


The symposium, to be intended as a “research event”, will focus particularly on the experimental video produced in the period (1968-1982), addressing several artistic tendencies and interpretative paths, including both pioneers and most recent artists and critics. Among the participating artists are: Claudio Ambrosini, Theo Eshetu, Luca Maria Patella, Federica Marangoni, Luigi Ontani, Michele Sambin, Mario Sasso, Guido Sartorelli, Luigi Viola. Attending curators include: Maria Alicata, Stuart Comer, Deirdre McKenna, together with gallerists, accademics, critics, art historians and media theorists such as: Renato Barilli, Achille Bonito Oliva, Silvia Bordini, Valentino Catricalà, Eleonora Charans Sean Cubitt, Giorgio De Vincenti, Bruno Di Marino, Lia Durante, Francesca Gallo, Marco Maria Gazzano, Luciano Giaccari, Laura Leuzzi, Angela Madesani, Dino Marangon, Anna Mazzanti, Silvia Moretti, Anna Notaro, Steve Partridge, Anne Marie Sauzeau, Lorenzo Taiuti. The journalist Mario de Candia, the director Carlo Quartucci, the performer Carla Tatò and the operators Carlo Ansaloni and Angelo Bacci will also be attending. It is hoped that such an interdisciplinarity of approaches will be reflected in a stimulating and insightful discussion. The event will be video-recorded and the organizers plan to publish a selection of papers.
