Chasing Boundaries - 4cptrs-Reel

Chasing Boundaries is a series of documentaries on contemporary art directed by Zaelia Bishop and Emanuele Napolitano, developed in colllaboration with AlbumArte with the intention to describe the condition of making art within a work that approaches to video art and tends to surpass traditional narrative method and linear structure in favor of an open platform to discover new ways of perceiving concepts and information. The goal of the project is also to collect different voices from distant lands, artists who daily operate under difficult or impossible conditions, managing to transform these experiences into artistic production. Each interview puts the viewer in the position to observe fragments of natural moments placed in sequence and produce a personal experience. This to observe things as they naturally unfold.

Zaelia Bishop and Emanuele Napolitano’s practice is based on observations of encounter, interaction and fusion between image and vision. Their projects examine in particular the relationship with everyday society, identities and connections between images and social behaviour. Documentation, collection, the exploration of the artefactual dimension, re-representations of images and spaces with various media, or creating a new presence for them, form Their practice. Zaelia Bishop and Emanuele Napolitano are interested in considerations of the possibility and impossibility of vision, or how images and visions in general can be practised any more today and exploring the life-span and cycles of an image and its topic.
