For ESTE ARTE 2018, Analix Forever proposes a video project based on the concept of space, the video screen by itself being a specific space, a specific environment where artists unfold there own vision of space : the sub-aquatic space (Ursula Biemann), the memory space (Ali Kazma), the lost paradise (Eva Magyarosi), the dream space (mounir fatmi), the urban space (Shaun Gladwell), the prison space (Jhafis Quintero, Abdul Rahman Katanani), lost endless spaces (Frank Smith, Mario Rizzi, Jean-Michel Pancin), other yet unexplored planets (Janet Biggs and Thomas Lasbouygues), a space to play (raymundo)…

Space for the artists is always first a mental space, a representation of the world, of their world, whether this world is extremely open as for Janet Biggs, or very closed as for Jhafis Quintero. For the artists, space is first a sensation, a way to express his or her own conscience of a given environment, the result of a very personal elaboration. “I am, hence I am the space” (Paul Ardenne). The necessity to explore new forms of spaces is endless, as is the need to connect them with time.
